Happy New Year! Hoping you had a great Christmas and New Year break with loved ones. We certainly did! Our December was a lot busier than anticipated. With five family birthdays in December, both Christmas and end of year celebrations, we were super busy. Many special memories were made, ones that we will treasure always. Now, the first week of January has passed, and hubby has returned to work, my plans for 2016 are well and truly underway. I love planning! I love charts! I love checklists! I love being organised! I probably love the planning side of it more than the actual physical organising lol I purchased the lovely Blooms Planner, see above photo, from Forever Organised. I began this year with downloading Make Over Your Mornings with Crystal Paine, author of Money Saving Mom blog. I am half way through the program and am already feeling organised for the year ahead. If you are interested, this is on sale for another day. Our school plans for the year are nearly complete. Most curricula purchased and on it's way or already here. Lots of decluttering! My car is loaded with items to drop off at the op shop, and our trailer nearly full enough to take to our local dump. Oh and I have been listening to podcasts by Michael Hyatt! He has a series of podcasts called This is Your Life. Michael's "goal is to help you live with more passion, work with greater focus, and lead with extraordinary influence." How are you getting organised for 2016? I would love to hear! Send me an email or comment below. Look out for my upcoming posts relating to how I have been organising these areas.
