Choose Your Own Adventure Goal Challenge November: Organize

Life According to Steph
The third month of the Choose Your Own Adventure challenge has the monthly theme of Organize.
To kick it off, I'm going to give away two of my favorite things: charity and a Muji Acrylic organizer. You get and you give. The Muji organizers are one of my favorite organizing tools, and November is one of the months food banks get low.

My Organize Theme Goals:
1) Closets - utility and coat
2) Crap bins - entry table, entry table drawer
3) Evaluate kitchen organization. Is it working? Could it be better? Am I holding on to things I'm not using? Is there anyone reading this in the Bucks/Philly area that would like any kitchen stuff I'm giving away?
4) 2015 Planner - set 'er up
5) Get lists going for December vacation

What do you need to organize this month? I seriously love to talk about organizing so hit me up if you run into a roadblock.

The link up to report in on how you did with November - Organize will be Thursday, December 4. Mark your calendars! For those that like to look ahead, the theme for December is Simplify.

  1. I really need to get my kitchen organized. Especially the tupperware cupboard. We have a lot of cupboards, but they're not very deep so we can't fit a lot in them.

  2. All of my teaching stuff (that's at our house and not at school) is strewn all over the basement. I'm picking up some rubbermaid tubs today because the cardboard boxes have got to go.

  3. I am so excited for this month's challenge! I've identified 3 areas of my house that desperately need organization: my daughter's homework/craft station, our front hallway closet, and our living room table. As a bonus, I need to organize my blogging stuff and my Pinterest boards because all the things are in all the places but if I don't get to these, I won't consider the month a fail.

  7. I am DYING to organize my makeup! I've been living out of a travel makeup case for ages now, and I'm ready to graduate to actual makeup storage. :)

  8. My kitchen so needs to be organized but since it still needs to be renovated my office will be my focus. No promises it will happen with the holidays though, i am just hoping to survive. Hehe.

  9. hells yes to this month's linkup!! i'm about to finish one of my goals today (get all christmas cards made) as today is old hen craft day at my friend's place. we do this every year - bring all of our paper craft stuff over to her house (she has a workshop in her basement), eat good food, drink wine and then make christmas cards all day. I'M BEYOND EXCITED. 10am isn't too early to eat wings and drink wine, right?

  10. I moved in July, and have been so busy with school/work that I still have two huge boxes of clothing that need to be washed, sorted, folded, put away or donated. I really really really really need to do this. REALLY.

  11. YES to the closet cleaning. I'm not kidding when I say I have worried that the gravity defying pile o' shit in there will collapse, the doors will bust open, and Johnny Cakes will be standing in the line of fire. That has literally crossed my mind. It's sick.

  12. Oh man, I totally need to focus on organizing this month! Perfect timing! I need to organize our kitchen pantry. It isn't horrible, but there are two shelves that are a little out of control. Also, I have a cabinet by the stove that catches all the crap and needs cleaned out. And don't get me started on our third bedroom/dog room/my office/storage/hot mess! That area needs some serious attention!

  13. Great theme! I'm going to tackle the office, which is the room that I've always given the least attention to. It still is not full unpacked!

  14. Ooooooh, muji! Not sure I'l be linking up bc of my surgery, but my big project it organizing the kitchen and trying to make it "surgery friendly" because I wont be able to lift my arms above my breasts or carry anything heavy. Gotta put the oreos where I can reach them!

  15. So many spaces to organize, so little time. I guess if I had to choose, it'd be our office/playroom because junk papers and toys everywhere.

  16. oooh, Simplify for December... Interesting. Interesting indeed.
    I had no idea food banks got low at November - thank you for enlightening me! i will definitely donate this month.

  17. Oops! I didn't follow directions and left my comment in the little box in your Rafflecopter widget. Sorry! I need to purge my closet. I have tons of sweaters I'm never going to wear again. I also need to clean out the pantry. We're starting to eat a little cleaner so I'm going to donate a ton of boxed stuff to the food bank. I also need to make space in the garage to store all the kids' presents.

  18. I definitely need to organize my closet. What I really need to do is get rid of clothes...I feel like I am constantly going through and getting rid of stuff but somehow I still never wear half the clothes in my closet.

  19. Awesome giveaway lady! Does our whole condo count? We have these little pockets that need organization. That bookshelf, the bench in our bedroom, the pile on the loveseat that never goes away haha.

  20. I'm getting some boxes unpacked if it kills me. Plus -- super exciting news -- our basement floor is finally going to be finished this month (at least that's the rumor... oh the joy of having a church as your landlord!) so maybe we'll be able to set up our home office and storage areas instead of keeping everything piled in the garage.
