Organization: New Season of Life

A great way to start the fall — or any season for that matter — is to get your home and your life organized.

Call a family meeting and designate a Saturday or Sunday for getting organized. Begin at 8 a.m. and end with a pizza party. If you can’t come up with a date because everyone is going every which way, look at how too many family activities contribute to disorganization.

If you have parents in town, would they be willing to help babysit your little ones or help haul junk? What about asking your sister and brother-in-law for help or hiring someone to help clear out the paint cans and boxes of National Geographic?

When our boys were young we used to have leaf raking parties. Relatives and friends would come and everyone would rake. (I have great pictures of grinning children sitting in heaps of leaves.) We’d end the day with a big family meal.

It’s hard work but great fun.

Many people don’t get organized because they feel overwhelmed when they think about everything that needs to be done.

Instead of going that route, focus on specific areas and ask for help.

Make a list, have a family meeting, and determine who will do what. Then setting a date to get organized and you’re halfway there.

Check out Doris’ latest books, “The Boy Whose Idea Could Feed the World,” as well as “The Parent Teacher Discussion Guide,” and “Thin Becomes You.” At Doris’ web page: www.doriswildhelmering.com.
