To start off this challenge, write out a list of 52 organizational projects you would like to get done. Try to make each item on the list something manageable (ex - instead of clean the office break it down into smaller areas like desk top, 1 drawer, 1 shelf, etc). Every Friday we will check in on our progress.

Like I said, we will start this challenge off with making a list. That is your 52 weeks of organizing challenge for this week. Post your list of 52 areas that you would like to organize in this thread.



**Inspiration for this challenge comes from I'm and Organizing Junkie**

It won't take me long to finish out my list, just don't have enough time at the minute. Pretty sure all the things on my list will have the ability to be finished in a day. I knocked off a couple things (that would have been on my list) last month during one of the kitchen challenges and I am LOVING it now! Can't wait to get all 52 things done!
