Day 17 of 31 Days of Simple Organization.
I had a fun question from a reader and decided to answer it as part of my simple organization series!
“I am a huge fan of your blog. I was wondering if you have any suggestions for how to organize your ideas. I have ideas for things I would like to do around the house “someday.” I have ideas I want to use with my boys, in my business, on my blog, places to visit, and books to read. I want to find a useable way to record these ideas, but in a way that is easily accessible later so I actually do them. Not a lot to ask for, right? :)” – Trisha
Trisha, that’s a great question! If I had to sum up an answer in one word, it would be this: Pinterest. I absolutely LOVE using Pinterest to keep my ideas organized! I have a board for homeschool ideas, a board for recipes I want to try, another for recipes I’ve made, one for writing/blogging, a board of books to read, and so on.
In fact, I wrote an entire article about Pinterest organization here – it includes information about how I organize some of my boards as well as tips and tricks for how to keep from getting overwhelmed or feeling inadequate when you’re browsing your homepage. In addition to how I personally organize Pinterest, some people have a board for each of their kids, so they can easily pin as they come across great stuff.
As far as blogging and business ideas, you may want to consider purchasing a blogging planner. I absolutely love My Blog Plan and use it every day! You can read a full review about that planner here. If you want something that you can print directly from home (just don’t forget to factor in the cost of ink and paper), then you’ll probably love something like this printable blog planner from Multi Taskin’ Mom.
I hope that helps you, Trisha! Let me know if you have any more questions about organizing your thoughts and ideas!
