Life Goals & Bullet Journaling

Everyone needs goals. Whether it’s to get out of bed every morning, run 5 miles a day (not gonna happen unless I am getting chased by a wild animal), find a new job or get organized, we all need goals. This year my plan is to get everything in some kind of order. I am at my best when my spaces are organized and everything has a place. When everything is messy and unorganized I tend to have anxiety attacks and fits of rage. Just ask my family.

I live with all boys and a dog. All males. They tend to be messy and are not bothered by clutter. Happy as freaking clams. So when I nicely suggest they pick up after themselves the whining and tantrums being. Thing 2 drops to the floor in a fetal position, Thing 1 starts to defend his piles and the dog just moves to another room. And then I flip the freak out. I threaten to throw everything away. Just haul it off to the dump. But I know I don’t have the energy to actually do it.

So I have a plan. I am reclaiming my home! Everyone has been put on notice. My office is now MINE. I am working on revamping it to fit MY needs. The boys have a ‘man cave’ upstairs so all their crap has been moved upstairs. No more dropping off everything in the office when they walk in the door. Big Daddy has one tiny little corner for his stuff. We are working towards making that look better. I will post pictures when I am done. Before and After. Here is just a snippet of my desk. f office

So while I am searching Pinterest like a crazy woman, I found something new. It’s called ‘Bullet Journaling’. It was created by Ryder Carroll, who is an art director, web designer and a lot more. He’s kind of a big deal. It’s kind of a kick-ass to-do list for EVERYTHING! I watched the video on his website at least 100 times and I am so addicted. I am working on my on bullet journal now. More to follow…

Here is a link to his website where you can check out the video he made on this Bullet Journal thing.

Now back to organizing, you can see what inspires me from my Pinterest board here:

Can’t wait to have a completely organized home and life. Even if it kills me. Or kills my family.

  1. Argh, I feel for you. My ex-husband was a slob. He would do stuff like come home and throw his pocket change on the floor like an animal.

    I’d have to bend over and pick up all his change before vacuuming and I tried and tried to get him to stop. I set up a change receptacle, I reminded him… finally I started throwing it away.

    That worked real quick, lol. Course, he is my “ex” husband, so there’s that…

      1. Even better! I so should’ve started a Starbucks fund.

        Gah, my ex also threw everything into his closet. There would be wadded-up fast food bags in there. Freakin’ boys…

  2. Finders Keepers I always say. My sweet hubs quit leaving his change, from the $20 broke at lunch, on the dresser. The money fairy kept taking it while he was asleep. 😉

  3. Hi, I am new to bullet journal, and clicked on your blog from that site. Do you have an update on how it worked or didn’t work for you? I’d be very interested in hearing about it!

    1. Hi Deb! I love my bullet journal! It really works for me and keeps me organized for short term and long term goals and projects. I’ve taken to “prettying up” my journal with planner stickers from Michaels craft store too!
