Getting organized helps with your quest to save money and stay frugal. When you know what you have and what you need to buy, you don't duplicate items you already have and do not need. You can get on track for sales and buy groceries and other household necessities, clothes, school supples, and large ticket items at the times of year when they go on sale.
Deciding the plan of organization for you is key. There are hundreds upon hundreds of books, websites, plans, schedules, etc. that are designed to help you get organized. But who helps you decide which plan and schedule is best for you? If your a procrastinator like me, simply choosing the plan and schedule will be a chore. If that's you, I highly recommend Flylady.org, which is a no-nonsense, hit the ground running, use what you have, don't worry about the fancy organizer or calender or cleaners method. You begin by shining your sink and wearing your shoes and the ideology that you can do anything for 15 minutes. Flylady has all kinds of little acronyms and terms for everything, such as PODA (plan of daily attack), CHAOS (can't have anyone over syndrome) and Control Journal. Flylady makes getting started easy, and she welcomes you with open arms, never judges you or your situation.
If you are already a little organized and just need a boost to your current organizational plan, Organized Home provides a much less structured plan of attack. You'll find printable forms and printable planner pages to create or supplement your household notebook, as well as plans for freezer meals, tips for grocery shopping and recipes.
