Getting Organized for the New Year

This is a sponsored post as part of the momAgenda Council of Media Moms. All opinions are my own.

Every year, as part of my New Year’s resolutions, I vow that I’m going to become more organized. Maybe with a cleaning schedule or with keeping track of the bills or staying on top of all the paperwork that gets sent home from my boys’ school. One move toward organization at a time, so I have a chance to actually keep up with my resolution.

I’ve been pretty good at keeping track of all of our schedules: practices, games, parties, school projects, special days at school(as in sending my child in pajamas on the right day). I write all that down in my momAgenda Desktop Planner. It goes everywhere with me and as soon as I know the date of an event, I write it down there immediately.

But, to keep track of more than just dates, I started using the momAgenda All-in-One Folio.

momagenda While there is a 12 month calendar, where you can keep track of all of your family’s activities, there’s more to this planner. The folio section features tabbed page protectors for storing important papers you reference frequently, like school schedules and class lists. I keep my preschooler’s month calendars here and the project instructions for my oldest’s (way too involved, in my opinion) homework projects. School lunch calendars, schedules for the season for soccer/basketball, registration forms, even bills: there are 48 pages and 24 tabs so there’s room for whatever you need to store and then easily find. There’s also a large notepad and pen.

momagendaThe momAgenda All-in-One Folio comes with helpful forms, like babysitter info, family medical info, birthdays and anniversaries, and more. You can also find free organizer printables on momAgenda. Be sure to go take a look- you can get a headstart on your New Year’s organization!

Will “getting organized” be one of your New Year’s Resolutions? What do you struggle the most to keep organized?

    I use a Franklin Planner and put my whole life in there.  If I lost it – I would literally be…lost.  I hope to figure out how to put my agenda and entire life of doctors, lawyers, and Indian Chiefs in my computer so no need for paper organizer anymore!

    I have resisted and resisted and resisted using a paper planner/organizer/calendar/ etc. for SO LONG. By the time I found blogs and such I already had an ipod touch and I used it as my planner/organizer, when I finally got my smartphone I downloaded and trashed tons of planner apps. But I never could find what I wanted in one that would sync with my computer/ipads. So I finally stopped resisting and I now have a “homemaker binder”. It’s got more than homemaker stuff in it, such as blogging, photography, menu plans, school stuff, etc. but I have to admit it is so much easier for me to have it in physical form. I still have my calendar and to-do list on my phone/computer but the rest is in the binder.

    I really need an organizer. I keep all my information on a sheet of paper that is constantly being changed!
