Selectively Organized

Heather BouwhuizenComment

I have people tell me all the time that I'm super organized. I'm actually more of a fly by the seat of my pants gal.  But I've conceded that, in certain areas of life, it makes my life easier and less stressedful to employ some basic level of organization.  I'm actually, what I call, selectively organized.  Here's evidence:  

 

Coat rack- not organized

Two years ago, we were lucky enough to be able to make a small laundry room addition on our house.  When we added on the new laundry room, the old laundry room became a walk in pantry.  So awesome!  

The walk in pantry is organization central. Our weekly schedule goes on the wall.  

 

This prevents me from answering " What is happening today?"

We also put our weekly menu on the wall. 

 

"What's for dinner?"

My number one organizational tool: my digital calendar.  I add an event to my calendar, and it immediately updates my husband's calendar and vice versa.  If it's not on the calendar, it isn't going to happen.  

So, not totally organized.  Just selectively organized.
