52 Weeks To An Organized Home:
Join The Weekly Challenges

Do you want an organized home? Most people do, but they go about it in the wrong way expecting overnight success. Let's instead do it the right way, together, with the 52 Week Challenge.

Why Does It Take 52 Weeks? Why Can't I Get Organized Over Night?

You cannot expect to get your home completely organized over night, even though that would be wonderful. It just won't realistically happen for most of us because we have too many areas in our homes that we need to address.

Plus, even if a whole crew came in and organized everything right now, like they do on some of those television shows, you most likely don't have the habits in place to maintain that organization yet.

However, you can get organized slowly, over time. That is where The 52 Week Organized Home Challenge comes in. Each week we focus on a different challenge area in our homes and make steady forward progress.

The idea is that at the end of the 52 weeks you will have an organized home. Plus, your life and your home will run more smoothly, plus you'll have gained the knowledge, skills, habits and routines necessary to actually keep it that way!

Trust me, maintaining the organization you put in place can be just as much of a challenge as getting there in the first place, so those skills and discipline are very much needed!

When Does The Organized Home Challenge Start? Am I Too Late To Begin?

This challenge is ongoing. You don't have to wait until January 1st or any other arbitrary time to begin. Instead just jump in wherever we are right now and take off from there.

How Do I Keep Up With The 52 Weeks To An Organized Home Challenges?

Each Monday I will put up a new challenge on the site that we will all work on during the week (including me -- I'm doing the challenge right along with you). You can just check the site each week for the new challenge if you want.

However, I know that it can be hard to remember to check something on the web each week, so I am also going to send out the challenge each week as part of the free email updates and newsletter for the site. If you want these free emails to come to your home, along with additional organizational tips and hints, sign up below.

Sneak Peek Of 2016's Challenge

I've run this challenge for several years. In fact, 2016 will be the fifth full year for it. Every year I try to improve it, and this coming year is no different.

For 2016 I've rearranged the order of many of the challenges, combined a few, and added a new one. It just gets better and better each year!

I've created this one page printable below to show you at a glance exactly what we'll be doing during the challenge each week, and when you open it as a PDF on your computer the links to each week are clickable, meaning you can read that week's challenge all from this document!

We're Currently Still Working On 2015 So You Can Start Right Now!

While above I gave you a sneak peek of what I have planned for all of us in 2016 you don't have to wait until January 1st to get started. We're working on the 2015 version of the challenge right now, so jump right in!

Grab a copy of the free PDF below which lists all 52 of the challenges for 2015 in order here, with links to each one so you know exactly what to do each week.

Here's A List Of The 52 Challenges In The Organized Home Series {Currently Listing 2015}

Below is a list of the 52 challenges that are part of the Organized Home series. Right now I've still listed them in the 2015 order since we're still working on them.

You Can Report Your Own Progress On The Hall Of Fame

I want people to participate in this challenge, and to be able to show off what they've accomplished since it feels so good when you get something positive done in your home!

If you do even one of the challenges, whether while it is running that week or anytime you get around to it, and want to show off your accomplishments I would be happy to publish your before and after pictures, or story about what you did here on the site. Just for this purpose I've created a "Creative Storage Solutions And Home Organization Hall Of Fame." I'll also be sharing my own progress, week by week, in this section of the site too so you can track my progress (or see my stumbling blocks) toward my own organized home.

In addition, if you have your own blog and share your accomplishments there instead you can send me a link to your blog post and I will link to it from the "Hall Of Fame" if you allow me to use a picture and share a brief synopsis, plus add a link to the 52 Week Organized Home Challenge from your blog post.

All participants can also grab this badge if they wish:
