One Year to a {More} Organized Life, Week Seven

I am not feeling the greatest, so this is going to be short.

This week's challenge is to create a daily and weekly routine for yourself. Pull from all the brainstorming you've been doing. Make sure you assign a time of the day (does not have to be an actual o'clock time) for your bare minimum. Include other goals from your lists, as well, even if you know you may not always get to them. Your routine is not a list of "must do's", but a guideline of how a typical day should go. If you have chore aged children, schedule in when you will focus on their chores.

Here is my rendition of a routine chart. If you prefer a different format, you can also use:

Crystal's customizable PDF or her customizable Daily Docket's Daily Checklist and Weekly Checklist

or create your own in Word or Excel.

For this week, just focus on trying to get something on paper. Next week, we'll start implementing the routines and see how they work. They can always be changed if things aren"t quite working as smoothly as should be.

As always, I'd love to hear how it's going. Anyone come up with any great ideas on kids' chores?


  1. I love those templates, they are so lovely and use-able looking.

  2. I'm playing catch up and have put my links above if you are interested in reading my take on weeks 3-5. Hopefully I'll be "on time" from now on!!

  3. I love your little bird in the tree :-) I've been mostly sick with one thing or another the last three weeks and have just been so behind....hoping to get caught up on all my blog challenges this week!

  4. I'm back in the saddle! I'm also a big fan of the forms on :)

  5. Well, I think I'm getting slightly more organized, little by little. :-)

    I wanted to answer your questions from before (although they're off-topic). The crib tent does cover the whole crib, you put the crib mattress over the bottom of it, the only way your budding engineer could get out is by working the zipper from the inside (honestly I have no clue how hard that would be to do) or somehow tearing a hole in the mesh. And the humidifier cleaner is called Bionaire humidifier cleaning solution and I think it works great, I'm surprised how easily the lyme (or whatever) comes off. I recommend it, it seems so much less toxic (barely any odor) and intimidating than bleach.

  6. Here is week 7:
