GET A FRESH START — CLEAN OUT CHECKLIST


When I made the Breaking Down Your Goals Into Manageable Tasks documents, I designated 2012 as The Year of Getting Shit Done. That was just a little reminder to myself that I'd like to get a lot more done in 2012 than I did in 2011, and I thought I'd take you on the journey with me with checklists, guides, and useful forms and documents I'll be creating along the way.

I've been doing some deep cleaning since I got back from spending the holidays with friends and family in the Midwest. I thought I'd make you a little checklist if you want to get some areas of your home clean & organized too. (Who doesn't like a checklist?) If you can check off one of these lines per day, you'll be so organized in less than 2 weeks! Your wardrobe and office might take a day or two, but it will be sooooo worth it!

Download and print a PDF of this checklist here.

I've cleaned out my car, so that's one off the list. I guess I could move on to a few others, like the medicine bin and those stacks of magazines. Thanks for the list. It's helpful!

Using this, thank you! Already have done a couple so I can start ahead, yay! The last one, makes me cringe though, it will definitely be saved for last!

In LOVE. A few of these I have under control, but it's the paper and the bitsy stuff in drawers that needs sorting and tossing. Woo hoo to getting shit done!
