Happy New Year friends!! Wow, what a year 2013 has been! I’m looking forward to what 2014 has in store and I wish you all a happy, healthy and wonderful 2014!
I love a fresh start to a new year and like everyone else, I think about ways that I can simplify, get organized and better manage my time and clutter in my home. Over the last year, I have shared the printables that I have created that have helped me get organized. Today, I thought I would pull them together into one post in hopes that one or all them can help you as well.
My favorite printable and the one that helps me the most in my printable “To Do List” that I shared on the blog back in 2012 and again in 2013. This list has been a life saver for me and organizing my days and weeks:
This “To Do List” is really different and I designed it because the standard lists never work for me. Here is a closer look at the sections and layout of the list:
You can find my free printable “To Do List” here.
Another printable to help with staying organized is this 2014 desktop calendar that I shared last week in case you missed it:
You can either display the calendar in a 5 x 7 plexi frame or on a picture/plate holder on your desk or counter. You can find that post here.
One of the first things I organized last year was my baking cabinet. One of my resolutions was to bake more and my cabinet was in total chaos and I created these pretty label printables to help me get the cabinet organized. I didn’t bake more in 2013 but I cannot tell you how nice it is to be able to find stuff as I cook and see my pretty and organized cabinet.
My cabinet looks just like this almost a year later and I wish I would have done this years ago. I have learned that if I take the time to think through and really organize a space, I’m pretty good about sticking with it. I just need to find the time TO organize it! Ha!
I also shared blank labels in that post that will work for organizing and labeling anything. You can find that post and labels here.
Speaking of labels, did you know you can write on vinyl adhesive with chalk? You know, the vinyl rolls sold for the Cricut and the Silhouette machines? You can also use dry erase markers too! Back in February, I shared a template for creating your own vinyl chalkboard labels (you don’t have to have a machine for this) that can help with staying organized. They are not just for chalkboard labels either, you can use these templates on any color of vinyl rolls sold in craft stores or you can use adhesive label paper:
Again, you can do so much labeling and organizing with these printable stencils and you can get to that post here.
Lastly, a couple months ago, I finally organized all of my paint cans in the garage. It was so frustrating that it took me so long to find a color that I created these printable labels to put on the outside of each can. I just swipe a little paint on the labels and now I can find colors quickly. If you’re looking for a way to finally organize your paint, these labels can help:
These labels have been such a big help for me in getting my garage organized once and for all! You can find those labels here.
I sure hope they’re is a printable here that can help you get organized as we move into 2014!
Speaking of 2014, I’m really excited to announce that I will be the “Paint Palettes” contributor for one of my favorite blogs, Remodelaholic in 2014. Each month, I will be sharing a new color palette on Remodelaholic and I have some pretty palettes that I have started to pull together and I can’t wait for you guys to see what I have planned. You can read more about Remodelaholic and the 2014 contributor team here.
Have a fantastic first day of 2014 friends and I will be back on Friday. Happy New Year!!
