A Recalcitrant Wife and Mother Tells All
Well hello there and welcome to my obsession du jour! I’m participating in Org Junkie’s 52 Weeks of Organizing challenge.
It all started with a mess, a dream, and a list…
Want to know more? So far, I’ve completed the projects listed below. Click on the links to follow my gradual journey from overwhelmed to organized!
I know, right? I can hardly believe it myself! Believe you me, following through isn’t really my thang. But something has finally clicked because I sure am seeing some progress.
You know what’s even better than completing these projects? Maintaining them! Surprisingly, I’ve actually kept up with most of those improvements using what Org Junkie calls “The Ten Minute Tidy.” Before bed each night, I do a quick check of the places I’ve already organized and put anything away that is out of place. Truly – this is THE key to a more organized home. You can declutter and organize until the cows come home, but if you don’t make a conscious effort to MAINTAIN your organized spaces, you are pretty much screwed, pardon my French.
Here’s to living a life of simplicity and order!
