Here at Closet & Storage Concepts of Boston, Massachusetts, organization is the name of the game. We find that having a well-organized life makes your stresses less stressful, and you’re happy times much happier. One of the key things to keep organized though is your schedule. Good time management isn’t easy, but it is possible. That’s why calendars are so important. Here are the three things you should be keeping calendars for!
Having a calendar to keep track of your landscaping activities will ensure that your garden is gorgeous and well kept. Never again will you need to worry about when you last planted seed or fertilized the law, and you’ll have more than just the bedraggled look of your grass to tell you when it’s time to mow. Having a planting calendar that is in line with the seasons will mean that you’re ready for the spring planting and fall harvesting and that that herb garden is always fresh.
It can be a hassle to come home after a busy day at work, only to scramble together a last minute meal. So planning your meals in advance is the key to after work calm. Keep track of what ingredients you’ll need for each meal to ensure that they’re on hand, and always have your kitchen basics. This is a great way to go grocery shopping and get only what you need, then go again next weekend with next week’s plan. If you don’t want to deal with making lunch in the morning or the night before, you can also take this food-planning period to make a week’s worth of meals and freeze or refrigerate the rest. Counting calories? Keeping a meal planner will make it easy to track what you eat and cut down on snacking!
This seems like a no-brainer, but keeping a cleaning calendar is the key way to keep your home clean and organized. This can include daily tasks such as sweeping or loading the dishwasher but can also include more infrequent tasks. Include things you only do on weekends, like vacuuming and laundry, as well as monthly tasks like cleaning the oven or refrigerator. You can also leave yourself reminders for more long-term things, like airing out off-season clothes or remodeling projects such as resealing your floors.
