Pinterest, Pinterest, Pinterest. I am a little obsessed with pinning things on Pinterest. Any time I see something cool on someone’s blog (or when browsing Pinterest), I just can’t help but pin it to one of my fifty-nine boards. Yikes! On my fifty-nine boards, I have 4,295 pins (which I’m sure will increase by the time I publish this post. My problem is figuring out which project to do next. I love trying out new recipes and finding fun crafts for the kiddos. As a result, I created a weekly Pinterest Project post where I feature some of my Pinterest successes and fails. However, with so many pins, it becomes difficult to decide what to do next. I’ve been getting overwhelmed with the amount of projects that I would like to try.
What I have decided to do is create a weekly plan of things I want to accomplish. This list isn’t strictly related to Pinterest and includes activities I want to do with the kiddos, things I need to do around the house, some “me time,” and ideas for blog posts. Of course, there are the usual chores that need to be done every week-meal planning, grocery shopping, laundry, cleaning the house, etc.-but the things on this list will go beyond that. For example, I want to become more organized. I might tackle the kids’ closets next weekend, but the following weekend, I might take a break from organizing and create a Valentine’s Day craft.
I found a cute notepad for list taking at Target’s dollar aisle that I plan on using. I’ll jot down my ideas at the beginning of the week and go from there.
Another reason I’m feeling stressed is because of my post on 14 in 2014. There are lots of goals I want to accomplish in 2014, and I need to keep reminding myself that it’s just the start of the year. I have plenty of time to work on these goals, and if I don’t finish, it’s ok. They are simply goals.
Any suggestions on how you organize projects so that they’re not overwhelming?!
