All about the Daily Organising Tasks

Welcome to the daily tasks!

I have been running a very popular daily tasks series on the Organise My House facebook page for a few months now, and many readers have asked if I could add the tasks to this site, so that they can go through them whenever fits their schedule – and your wish is my command!

The basic idea of daily tasks is to avoid overwhelm by fitting one small organising or cleaning task every weekday into your schedule, working at random around the house, so that you become more organised little by little without really noticing the amount of effort you have made as it has been spread over a longer period of time, and daily tasks can become a habit for you.

They are the sort of tasks that can easily be forgotten in the usual day to day routines, but doing them can really make a difference to how you feel about your home in general.

So – I will be writing a post per task – with help and advice along the way from myself and all around the web. I will also number them rather than date them – so that you can start when you want to, and easily work through them at your convenience, always knowing which number you need to do next (whether you prefer to do them one a day, or in small batches when you have a little more time).


So – why not get started…

I hope you have loads of fun tackling things, and please don’t forget to let me know how you’re going.

Here is a list of all the tasks so you can decide whether to start from number 1 and work your way down – or do those which will make the most difference for you and your home. I have also added in a link to the WEEKLY TASKS post that I am currently writing – so that you can go a specific week if you prefer, where there are 5 weekday tasks and a weekend treat to enjoy!.

I really hope these help you to get a little more organised!

    I have bookmarked this page, as I am beginning the daily tasks TODAY! Yeah, I’m always late, but as the saying goes, “The party don’t start till I walk in…” I figure April 1st is as good a time as any to get on board. Thanks for creating this lengthy list, and for keeping it updated so slowpokes like me can creep along behind you. Now — off to gather trash for the Bin Bag Challenge! *w00t*
