Getting Organized to Slow Down

7 Ways to Get Your Family Organized for Summer - The Inspired Room-2

I think what most of us want this summer is unhurried time to enjoy with our family. Yes? At least that’s what we are craving at our house! We have a pretty busy schedule most of the time so being intentional about our summer plans is what will make all the difference between dreaming about slowing down…and actually slowing down.

We are deliberately and quite intentionally slowing our usual pace this summer starting in July, and I could not be more excited know we will have downtime together.

But in order to make the most of our downtime and enjoy our “staycations”and road trips, we have to get a little bit better organized and prepared now so we can begin to fully experience what will hopefully feel like the lazy days of summer.

Today on The Decluttered Home you’ll find my guest post with inspiring ideas and gentle nudges for how to prepare for your best summer yet! Come on over!
