Fall Organizing Mini Challenge
I’m challenging myself (and you!) to a little fall/back to school organization this next week! Follow along on Instagram for each daily challenge. Every fall I tackle a couple areas that need to get whipped into shape and this year I’m making it public 🙂 I’ll be showing you my completed challenge in our home ‘live’ as it’s completed each day and sharing a couple posts throughout the week as well.
The premise is that with about 15 minutes each day, we can put a couple simple systems in place that will carry us through the busy months ahead. Most of these topics I’ve talked about on the blog before and they’re systems that WORK! I’m linking up some posts here that will be helpful if you’d like to check out what I’ve said before on the topic. I’ll be posting all of my live progress on Instagram so follow along or peek over there each day. If you don’t have kids heading back to school, the ideas are still applicable, just adjust it to fit your needs. For instance, instead of putting together a homework caddy or area, organize your desk or get your planner ready. Instead of working on kids clothes you can do a little purge of your own clothes. I’ll be doing more of these mini challenges – I hope you enjoy it!
Make sure you sign up for my posts too!
Ready for a mini challenge? Here are the tasks for each day:
MONDAY – Homework caddy
TUESDAY – Snack and Lunch Prep
WEDNESDAY – Kids’ Clothes
THURSDAY – Command Center
FRIDAY – Clean/Organize the Refrigerator

Yes I need a jump start to school prep. The boys go back in two weeks!
This is just what I need because When it comes to clutter and reorganizing I do procrastinate. I have the best of intentions at the start but I become indecisive when given a choice and I waiver way too long. The indecisiveness is quickly followed by discouragement and so I stop. So there you have it, to quote a line from a famous movie, “tomorrow is another day”, only my “another day” turns into weeks or months.
Not that you were looking to hear all that so yes, I’ll join the challenge. One thing though, I will need to make a few substitutions as we do not have children. Our two additions to the family have four legs and a tail. I will be following you on Instagram. Thanks!

Thank you, my kids are grown and I wish I would have been more organized. But, I still follow u so thank u again for sharing
Love this challenge!
Love the idea of DIY cleaners. The cleaners used by the services are so toxic. I had to quit using them years ago because of the asthma. With the recipes provided for some cleaners … The orange essential smell leaves my house smelling happy ! Thank you for sharing the recipes.
