being organized

Being organized..........well, what can I say?  it's a struggle for me.  HUGE struggle.  It always has been. Probably always will be. 

I have been better in recent years. But it is still a struggle. I am a pile person and really, am more interested in other things-- gardening and flowers in the summer, reading, internet, playing with Miss M, cooking, the list can go on and on--pretty much anything except housework, especially organizing the house!
I think, though, there is hope for me.  I recently came across this blog,  Home Storage Solutions 101. Most of the time, websites like this overwhelm me. And I don't spend more than 3 nano-seconds at them.  But what caught my eye, was the 52 weeks to an organized home challenge.  The idea behind this is that you take a whole year to organize your house.  I could do that.  This challenge started at the first of the year, so I am 2 weeks behind.  But I can catch up.  (Besides, I looked at the whole list and there are a few areas I am quite proficient in and can use that time to catch us.)

I will also try to post some before and after pictures on my blog.  Are you interested?  Do you want to accept the challenge with me???

Because, my friends, having an organized home is:


  1. I'm self-diagnosed OCD so this isn't an issue for me but I do like ideas that come from this lady's blog: You might want to peruse hers too. I do have a general organizing tip I live by though: if you haven't worn it or used it in 6 months: chuck it, you're not going to use it or wear it. Good luck!

  2. This looks like a great challenge. I think I will try it too. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Ann-- Thanks for the blog suggestion. I will check out iheartorganizing!! And thanks for the idea of the 6 month rule. Maybe someday I will be more like you and your mom!

  4. Rykki-- good luck to the both of us with this challenge. ;)
