Yes, I know "spring organizing" doesn't have quite the ring that "spring cleaning" does. Frankly though, I hate to clean, but I love to organize. Besides, cleaning implies that my house is dirty (which it is), but that is not what I feel like thinking about on this first day of spring.
I prefer to imagine all my garden tools gathered up and waiting for me to sink them into the earth; my kids returning from spring break re-energized and ready to tackle the last months of school; my summer child care plan in place; my taxes done; and my home office looking like the one in the picture. It's all just a fantasy now, but with some work it will happen (except, perhaps, for the home office).
So it's time to get going. Here are a few resources to get organize for spring:
- Summer Planning for Parents - This is something a parent more organized than I already has well in hand.
- Tax Resources for WAHMs - Taxes are an unfortunate spring event. They are unavoidable and, well, better than death.
- Family Spring Break Activities - Enjoy this time together.
- Work-at-Home Goals and Resolutions - Check in on how you're doing on your New Year's resolutions and start again, if necessary.
- Create an Eco-Friendly Home Office - Earth Day is coming up.
- Streamline Your Morning Routine - Just because we can see the end of the school year doesn't mean you have to limp to the finish line.
And if all this new-season, new-attitude seems familiar to regular readers, you're right. I do the same thing in autumn.
