Good luck with that. I find that if I try to overorganize, I lose touch and just stop doing it all together (rebellious nature, hehe).
I made a long list of things that needed to be done to become organized
and spent a long weekend doing all of it. It was stuff like buying baskets for my shelves/closets, buying plastic bins for storage, etc. Now, instead of using any lists, I do things as they need doing, and I no longer seem to get overwhelmed.
When I see dust, I spend 10 mintues dusting our home. Every room. Seriously takes no time.
When the one of the clothes hampers (I have 2 triple-sorters), are full, I do a load of laundry.
I keep a basket next to the stairs to the basement. Anything going downstairs -- recycleables, and any clothes that need to get to the hampers -- gets there when I go downstairs. That basket goes with me every time, unless there are only a few items I can carry by hand. Even if it's full, I don't take it down till it's full unless we're expecting company
If the dishes have been run through the washer, and there are dishes in the sink, instead of letting them pile up, I unload the dishwasher. I hate this chore, but in reality it only takes 3 minutes to get everything put up, and another 2 minutes to get the thing loaded again.
If I see something spilled on the counter, I wipe it up immediately.
If I see the toilets are getting dirty, I clean them.
You get the picture? Hehe. I don't know when the switch in my head flipped from procrastinator to overachiever when it comes to cleaning, but I'm glad it did. I'm so much more relaxed now.
I work full time, and before it felt like I was spending all of my hours at home cleaning. I seriouly spend about 30 minutes cleaning each day, minus cleaning up after dinner.
The only thing we really schedule around here is that DD's blanket and cot sheet have to be washed before school starts the next week, and recycling has to be taken to the center on Saturday mornings because they aren't open before/after work otherwise.
If you can make that work for you, then awesome!
I think in all reality I could make that work for a week, and then I'd be frazzled. I am a list maker though. I list things that need to be done, if I see it and don't have time. It's usually stuff like things that need to be picked up for shopping, or something special for DD's school, or maybe I need to bring my camera into work that day, things like that.
Right now I'm making a list of all the things I need to bring with me to the Tool concert tonight. AWWWW YEAH!
