Organizing

My dear friends. I am about to let you peek inside my messy, messed-up, slightly mis-wired brain. Please be kind. But on the off chance that one of you has the same issue, I’m going to start by admitting that I have a problem. Wanna hear it? Ready? Deep breath. Here we go… I have [...]

Last week, I decided it was finally time to organize my pantry. And by “organize”, I mean dig into the back corners of the closet and remove bag-fulls of expired food including a can of sweetened condensed milk from 2004. I kid you not. We moved that can from at least two different houses. I’ve [...]

As I was digging through a packed closet in search of my gardening tools this weekend, I found myself wishing we had more space. The closet was cluttered and jammed full of things that probably didn’t belong there. A box of unattached power cords, cleaning supplies and bubble wands were sharing space with the Dustbuster, [...]

Some days I think that the laundry in our house self-generates. Just when I think I have it under control, there are 5 more loads, no one has clean underwear and my hubby is out of dark socks. Again. Are you feeling me here? If we’re friends on Facebook, then you may have heard me [...]

I have a tendency to over-complicating things. My husband just fell down laughing at the understatement. Take, for example, the disaster that is my master bathroom vanity. We are blessed to have a large double sink, which should mean that we each have plenty of room without encroaching on the other’s space. That’s the dream. [...]

I know that lots of people have long ago gone digital with their schedules…Microsoft Calendar, Calendars on the cell phone, iPads, Blackberries, Strawberries, whatever. But for me, the calendar needs to be right in front of my face. Frequently. That means I’m old school with my time management. A great big paper calendar. The bigger, [...]

Bit by Bit: The Breakdown

The problem-child tree came down the day after Christmas, but I haven’t been in a hurry for everything else. Then, on Sunday, the boys were all watching football and the itch started. The Un-Decorating Itch. The Christmas un-decorating is usually a frenzy of bubble-wrap and boxes. The kids run and hide. I can’t bear to [...]

I’ve shared before that I’m a major magazine junkie. I have so many subscriptions that I love and enjoy. This Old House, Southern Living, BHG, Coastal Living, and on and on. My problem is that I can’t part with my magazines once I’ve read them! Same goes for home decorating catalogs like Pottery Barn, Restoration [...]

Any mom of boys in cringing right now. All those teeny, tiny pieces on the floor…getting lost in the carpet…getting mixed in with other toys. Argh. This may not be the prettiest post I’ve ever written, but it may be the most practical. My boys have recently discovered the wonderful world of legos. That means [...]

The Breakdown

Not a nervous breakdown…the Christmas decoration breakdown. We’ve barely sung the last chorus of Jingle Bells when I get the itch to start un-Decking the Halls. Which is funny considering how eager I am to get the decorations up in November. I guess all the visual stimulation and activity becomes a little too much and [...]

I’ve got an organizing tip for you today and a giveaway, so make sure you go all the way to the bottom to throw your name into the hat…or is it a purse? I can’t believe I’m about to show you the inside of my closet…it could get ugly, girls. This is what my purses [...]
