I'm a full-time working mom of 3, grandmother to 2. I have one child left at home, the older two are married, each with a daughter. Like any working mom, I struggle to find a balance between work, family, friends, etc.
This morning I got up, got my coffee & got to it. I have a cabinet with 3 baskets - all labeled. The problem? They were overflowing, I couldn't find anything and 90% of what was in there wasn't any good anymore! Those baskets are now organized and only what's needed to be in them is left. Myself and my husband can now find what we need easily. I also cleaned out the cabinet under my microwave & organized it. I eliminated the overflow of coffee mugs in my cabinet & put them in a bag to donate that I intend on adding to. I'm not planning on getting the whole kitchen & dining room done in a weekend but I figure, if I do a little each weekend - I won't get overwhelmed and before I know it, I'll be able to move on to the next room!
