Getting Organized

27 July 2007 One Comment

Ok, fess up. How many of you are obsessed with being organized?

Or, if you aren’t obsessed with being organized, you’re obsessed with wanting to be organized?

Well, here’s your answer my friends. Organization central.

I prefer organized messes. Although I love being organized, I find that being truly organized with three little ones and a hubby who loves to collect stuff in the house is impossible. Accept reality, and move on to spending my time on things that don’t frustrate me. And have my one space, just for me, that’s completely organized (and nobody’s allowed to touch or mom goes ballistic.)

    Hi! Thanks for all your hard work.

    Excellent! Glad you got it done. I’m in the process, too, of decluttering. One of my major struggles has been paper. 10 children, 25 years of homeschooling leads to stacks of stuff. This summer I came up with a filing system- 1 folder per child per year. It’s taken hours, but I can now find things and put things away quickly. Also, I’ve begun saving and organizing photos, memories, etc. electronically. I am using Legacyit.com. They save everything in several places, have an easy to use format, protect privacy, and the first 50 items are free. They even have a time line, so as I file letters and photos, I can view them in chronological order.

    One other tip is that I always put clothes I just wore to the right of my closet. Periodically I look at what’s to the left and can give those unused items away.

    God bless! Laurel
