I love Laura & I love

I have to say...I love Laura & I love Her posts are inspirational & motivating. She also has taught me that I am not alone in being self-professed organizing junkie! Organizing provides me with an incredible sense of accomplishment and satisfaction that few things have provided me. The benefits of being organized seem to be endless.....being organized creates more time (something every mom needs! Aren't we always saying that there are not enough hours in the day?), less clutter (mentally, for me this is huge. I find clutter to be a mental roadblock!), more space, ability to know what you have on hand....and on and on!

I have been plugging along with the 28 day organizing challenge & tackled some of my most problematic areas in my home. Areas that desperately needed to be organized & decluttered! I would have had more to share as far as pictures go but on January 1, I spent the entire day cleaning, decluttering & organizing my kitchen & dining room. Getting the biggest & most cumbersome projects out of the way first is important....I did that. I have been in heaven when I have to be in my kitchen ever since! I can find anything I need out there! I know where it all is! I even have organized "junk" drawers. Everything has a home & can easily be located. I am stickler for it all getting put back where it belongs too!

decluttering the linen closet



Working along with the 28 day organizing challenge....I tackleld several problem areas in my house. I finally decided to part with some products that had been taking up precious space for far too long. I decided to donate any un-opened products to a local mission. I threw out all kinds of miscellaneous things I found lingering in baskets & shoved into tight little spots in the closet. I have tried to keep this closet pretty tidy but the reality was that there was just too many things spread out & too many unused products. Getting rid of those things & organizing what was left provided me with an incredible high! I love, love, love to organize & declutter! I love to purge things! I love how freeing it is! I also love that I now know where everything is in that closet!!!
