What are your 2012 organising goals?

Last year I asked you about your 2011 organising goals, were you able to reach them?  I must admit, number 2…. I want to spend more time  ‘Scrapbooking’, wasn’t successful for me as I was having too much fun blogging 🙂

Let’s create new goals for 2012 and together try to accomplish them.  Also by filling out your goals gives me a good idea of topics I need to write about throughout the year 😉

Where do you want to start, what do you want to achieve?  Answer these questions for me: (My answers are below in caps).  

  1. I want to feel “RELAXED“ while I’m at home.
  2. I want to spend more time “HAVING COMPUTER FREE DAYS“ .
  3. I want an area of the home where I can “RELAX“ 
  4. I want to organise “OFFICE“ room first.
  5. I always lose “MY NAIL FILE“ .
  6. I want to be all organised by “EASTER SCHOOL HOLIDAYS“ .
  7. Something that I don’t need, but am having trouble parting with “PAINTINGS“ .

I’d love to see your answers, please copy above and paste into the comments area replacing my answers with yours.    

Together I will help you achieve these goals!!

Give it a try, I promise you will enjoy the end result!

1.I want to feel “CALM“ while I’m at home.
2.I want to spend more time “DOING SOMETHING *I* WANT TO DO“ .(ie get more organised about spending some quality time with my hobby – genealogy; #4 will actually help toward that, as the cupboard is big enough for my stalking stuff as well!)
3.I want an area of the home where I can “KEEP MY STALKING STUFF“ (see #2 and #4)
4.I want to organise “MY OFFICE“ first. (Plans are afoot regarding a CUPBOARD! My ‘office’ is a shelf in the dining room. It is going to expand to a cupboard by the middle of February)
5.I always lose “…..“ . I don’t lose stuff. Ever. The only time anything of mine goes awol is if somebody else takes it!
6.I want to be all organised by “LONG WEEKEND IN MARCH“ assuming I get my cupboard!
7.Something that I don’t need, but am having trouble parting with “RECORDS“ .
Yes. Those honkin’ great VINYL things. I have about 50 of them, and no record player. But they’re a part of my mis-spent yoof, and I don’t want to part with them!

Try putting your recipes from magazines in display folders. I am in the process of sorting into different coloured folders. Eg, entrees, dips and drinks in green, main meals in blue, baking in pink, desserts in purple, etc.
