31 Days of Preparing for Baby, Day 17

Day 17:  Organize

I have been nesting like crazy! But organization with a new born is extremely helpful. Not only will you be able to find things, but you can tell others where to find them too.

Major things to organize:
  • Hall closets
  • Bedroom closets
  • Dresser drawers
  • Office (drawers, cabinets and files)
  • Computer pictures (I like to have a shared picture folder, under that each year, in each year I have folders labeled “2010_01” for January 2010.)
  • Kitchen drawers
  • Kitchen pantry
  • Fridge and Freezers
  • Laundry room
  • Storage rooms (decorations, extra clothes, miscellaneous seasonal items)
  • Night stands
  • End tables (I have an end table by my chair with a few drawers, in it I keep my Bible and daily reading, to-do-lists, blogging file, and I will have it stocked for my nursing station.)
I know this isn't everything, but I really have gone through these rooms over the last few months, and what difference! Organization is not a one time event, it does need maintenance, but it is worth it.
