When you are managing a household, it can really pay to be organised. One of our aims here at 17 Bright Ideas is to show our Bright Sparks Members great ideas on ways to get more organised so they have more time for family and fun. We have developed 17 templates and checklists relating to different areas of life that will help you to stay on top of tasks. We have also made our templates changeable – we have put them in Word and Excel so that you can download them, then make them your own by changing them to fit your life. Download one or all and see how much more organised you can be.
