September organizing project recap

Wow, happy October!

Here’s a recap of September’s organizing project list. A few are spilling over into October, which is ok with me – lots of things cropped up on me {of course}.

  1. Create a go-to list of 20 easy, healthy, frugal, vegetarian meals, to hang in the pantry.
  2. Start my gardening notebook.
  3. Streamline the ol’ bag collection in the trunk of my car. How many reusable bags does a girl need?
  4. Come up with a composting system. Inside and outside.
  5. Find a local tire place and oil change place. Take care of necessary business, and write in my planner when it should be done again!
  6. Ditto on haircut, dentist, doctor, etc. Create a reminder system and put contact info in address book and phone.
  7. Clean out my car. Glove boxes and everything. I didn’t vacuum her out yet, so not done. Though it’s de-junkified.
  8. Find a way to organize coupons so I actually have them with me (I have the cutting them out part down – haha).
  9. Create a “landing strip” in the laundry room (where we enter from the garage).
  10. Organize the year’s photos so far. Back up all to hard drive. Put it on calendar to do this every 3 months.
  11. Make a list of Christmas gifts I will need to start planning for, and jotting down ideas.
  12. Get my recycling under control! (can you believe we don’t have curbside pickup???)
  13. Organize the garage with the hubby’s help. This is going to be a huge ordeal.
  14. Organize the painting supplies and leftover paint. {Ended up loaning out our painting supplies to my brother, so this will be a project when we get them back}
  15. Tidy up the basement. There’s not much down there but it’s willy-nilly.
  16. Cull the closet.
  17. Come up with at least 10 nice work outfits. {Started but not finished. I ordered some clothes so it’s all in if they make it to me (FedEx lost them) and if I like them when they get here.. I really hate shopping.}
  18. Organize dog stuff. Fail.
  19. Organize the office closet/office supplies. Started but not finished.
  20. Find a solution for storing gift wrap. Fail.
  21. Make a memo board for the office. Fail.
  22. Organize the file cabinet.
  23. Organize recipes. Sort through cookbooks!
  24. Organize the freezers.
  25. Create a cleaning schedule.
  26. Create a workout schedule for the next 30 days (with the intention of doing this monthly).
  27. Organize kitchen sink area. This is going to require some help and some online shopping for what I need.. yet to do.
  28. Put a clock in the living room.
  29. Prioritize home to-do projects. I did a budget instead and determined that we need to be done with all house projects for a while! I did jot down some things to do this winter which can be done on the super cheap, however.
  30. Prioritize yard to-do projects.

Of you super organized types – do you feel truly organized or do you just appear that way? Because I honestly feel like although everything’s in its place and things look tidy, I never feel like I truly have a handle on life. I have no problems doing the work to invent a system, but keeping it is another story entirely. Maybe I focus on too many things and too many systems? Forget to leave room for incidentals? Take on too much because I can’t say no? This probably deserves some thought…
