Let’s get organised in November

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

As we are coming to the end of the year, it is this crazy busy silly season it’s a good opportunity to sit and think about all the things we want to achieve before the year ends.  I have been writing about Christmas Goals recently in the Christmas Countdown Checklist series, but put Christmas aside and think about to the beginning of the year and the resolutions you put in place.  Pick one thing from your list that you haven’t completed yet and make a start on it.

My biggest business goal this year was to print a 2017 Calendar.  I am so thrilled that that dream has become a reality.  You can order your copy here. 


I truly love this calendar, it’s fresh, pretty and practical. I’ll share more photos and details now that I have a copy, in a blog post soon!

My Dad and some friends could tell I was a little (more like very) stressy and they were so lovely to offer to help me pack the orders to send out (many think I have a team behind me here on the blog, no… it’s just me). Words can’t describe how much I appreciate my friends and Dad’s help. I managed to post all pre-orders last week, so hopefully, if you ordered, you will receive your copy very very soon!


I printed double this amount, so have plenty more calendars available for sale!

Would it be possible for you to give us access to the planner for each month at the end of the previous month so we can put it up on the 1st of the month as normally a week has passed by the time you give us access?

I usually do that, but I have been sick this past week, so I’m a little behind. Thank you for your patience.
