How To Organize A Control Journal

Busy Mom’s Survival Guide Episode 028
Keeping a family of ten and Goat Milk Stuff running smoothly requires a lot of organization.  One of the things that I rely upon to help keep me organized is my Central Notebook or Control Journal.  It contains everything I need in a central location.


During this podcast episode, I discuss in detail how my control journal is organized, in the hope that something I do can help you to organize your life better.  I talk about how I use all the following sections:

  1. Goals/Tasks
  2. Calendar
  3. House Chores
  4. Shopping
  5. Holidays
  6. Contact & Reference Info
  7. Special Stuff
Do you struggle with organization?  or does it come naturally to you?

Thanks for listening!  Join me next week as I talk about homeschooling.

    This was extremely helpful. I am one of those who was seemingly born missing the organization gene! I have been helped a lot by this podcast and the one about chores and the decluttering series. Keep it up, PJ!
