Ready To Change Your Life? Make 2024 The Year You Get and Stay Tidy!

THE TIME IS NOW. Make this your most organized year yet. 2024 is the year of the Tidy Festival, according to.. Bear Method Organize! Let’s set our New Year intentions to get organized and stay organized. I’ve broken down the year by month. Each month commit to tidying or deep cleaning that category in full. You may be able to knock it out entirely in one long weekend, or you may prefer to stick to the suggested weekly breakdowns to accomplish everything at a steady, manageable pace.



Once completed, come back to this checklist year after year to update and maintain the systems you’ve implemented. Life comes at us - we evolve, we accumulate, we adapt. Spend one year investing in transformation and spend the years after that living joyfully and following up with minor maintenance.



Approaching a huge project like this one step at a time is often referred to as the kaizen way. Kaizen is a Japanese term that involves a gradual method of continuous improvement. This checklist is your blueprint to small steps you can take to save yourself time and energy. These small changes can lead to a massive positive impact in the quality of your life.
