Let’s herald in the New Year in style! Tip Junkie is here to help as Your Personal Assistant. Take a day and really plan and organize your schedule. Here are some of the things to do!

Organize

1.  It’s January and a New Year!  If you’re wanting to be more organized then print off the Executive Homemaker binder where you can keep track of everything in one place as well as printable worksheets to help keep  you organized and on task.  This Adorable Free 2013 Printable Calendar is a must have as well! 2.  Let’s start the month off right and make a list of the things that are causing you added stress. Make a list of the big ones as well as the little ones. Is something in the house that’s broken, is there an insurance issue you need to take care of, do you need an extra trash can upstairs to help keep things tidy?
  • If one of your new year’s  goals or resolutions is to get organized then you’ll LOVE all the organizational tips here on Tip Junkie and the creative women who have been featured.  Organize with style!
Once you’ve thought it out and made your list, plan a day this week as your “ongoing problem day” and finally resolve those issues that need to be resolved. You’ll be glad that you did! 3. Print out your free Daily/Weekly/Monthly/Annual cleaning checklist. And if you need it, you can also print out a free Stain Removal Guide. I also have several amazing Chore Charts for Kids that you can print out. 4.  Check birthdays for the month, buy cards & presents, get them ready to mail or deliver. If you have a child’s birthday this month, plan it and get out the invites. 5.  If you want to get a space in your house organized, these ideas might help!  25 Ways to Organize with a Clipboard and 10 Stylish Family Schedule and Command Center Ideas.
