Pouring over all the Pinterest and blogs about organizing has gotten me both motivated and scared out of my mind! On the one hand, there are awesome sites out there to help you whip your life into a semblance of order and control. But on the other hand, it takes some work to begin to tackle the job of restoring order to your home. It's scary! Where do you start?
I decided to take action and tackle on thing in my home that has been driving me crazy! The shoes in my closet. I share a closet with my husband and my shoes are on the top shelf. I can't tell you how many times I have reached up to get a pair and several shoes fall on the top of my head. It doesn't start my day off well, I can tell you this much. Here's a look at the BEFORE picture:
To solve my problem, I headed to Family Dollar and purchased some plastic shoe boxes with lids and organized my shoes by season. Green lids for spring and summer. White lids for fall and winter. See the finished product...
Now I was ready to try something a little more involved. I was so excited to stumble upon something to help me organize my blogging schedule and I'm soooo excited to share it with you! I found a free printable blog planner created by Erica at Confessions of a Homeschooler. It is truly amazing, and I am hoping it will keep me more organized as a blogger. Check out what you get!
|Monthly Calendar with check|
boxes for if you have scheduled
or shared the post with social media
|Blog Notes page with space for|
giveaways, post ideas, and statistics.

Isn't this brilliant? I have needed this for a LONG time and am thrilled to have found it. Now...I just have to USE it!
This is my foray into simple organization. What tips do you have for me? What do you use to organize your blogging? (if you are a blogger).
