Whew!  February is here and it's time to take a breather.  Let's dot those i's and cross those t's!  {{wink}}  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.  Can you believe it's already February?  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 Fabulous Free 2014 Printable Calendar is a must have, and these 17 DIY Pretty Planners for 2014 will help keep you on top of your game! 

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?

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.   Or, if you have a whole office that needs organizing, these 10 Beautiful Home Offices and Ways to Organize It ideas will definitely inspire you!  Maybe it’s time to finally pick the new colors you want for your wall?  Take this easy quiz (How to Chose Paint) and the work is taken out of color selection for you!

Moments that Matter

6. Let's get clicky with my Moments that Matter Photo Challenge. Capture moments that matter from your camera phone. Since the new year is a great time to capture Moments that Matter, AND get ORGANIZED, I'’ve picked a word each day that we can all capture with our camera phones to help us photo journal these joyous moments, AS WELL AS a phrase a day to help stay ORGANIZED. Share them or keep them for yourself, but enjoy the moment!

For more details, click here! Pick either one of the photo journal prompts and click away!
