Good evening! Its getting late here but thanks to the little nap I had on the couch, I'm wide awake and thinking about a lot of things I'd like to get done in my house.
I'm going to start with this: I'm a hoarder. There. I said it. Well I'd like to clarify that I'm not the TV show calibre of hoarder. My house is clean. I take pride in a clean house. I just have a LOT of stuff, and I have a hard time parting with anything! Having said that, I am currently on a rampage through my entire house, de-cluttering, organizing, and yes.... getting rid of unwanted, unneeded stuff.
I have something that I like to call MADD... Momma Attention Deficit Disorder. I get started on one project (my spare room) and I end up here and there throughout the house, not really accomplishing anything. I have torn the spare room apart, organized the closet, decided I hated what I did with the closet, piled a bunch of my STUFF on the bed, and haven't been back in there in a week. In the meantime, I started cleaning out the boys' closets, organizing my yarn stash, crocheting a scarf, crocheting a hat, and beginning Valentine crafts with the boys. Oh, and I'm also on a major laundry reorganization thing also.
And my sewing machine is calling. Poor guy hasn't even been looked at since the holidays. I think he's collecting dust.
So I'm looking for organization help! I've been searching other blogs for inspiration. I have been compiling printables for creating a Household Organization binder, as well as cleaning routine checklists and other organizational goodies. I will share those a little later.
My goal in all this, is to get my house into what I consider great shape before I head back to work in a few short months. I feel like I'm overwhelmed by the amount of STUFF in here. I think my new strategy should be one room at a time, and to stick to one job before starting others.
Wait a minute.... was that a shiny thing? Let's try not to get so distracted by anything/everything else, shall we?
I think Dory said it best.... "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming... swimming... swimming..."
Here are some of the sites I have been searching for inspiration....
