Home organizing

So the last week has been a great week for organizing and purging in my house. Trust me, my house is generally not as neat and tidy as I would like, and having worked full time with 3 kids and been pregnant and then having a newborn meant that housework and cleaning got seriously overlooked. Anyone who has been to my house lately knows that my sunroom (main entrance to the house) has been full of stuff I needed to organize. So I finally got through it all, and it feels really good. My kids are loving it too because they can find all their things, and know where to put it back.

There was a show on tv when I was a kid where the housekeeper (I think it was a robot, maybe on the Jetson's?) got stuck in one mode, constantly repeating, "A place for everything, and everything in it's place." That has been my mantra lately, and I really want to get my house to the point where this is true. Not that it will always be clean and perfectly tidy, but I would like it to be de-cluttered and have a place for everything.

I have definitely not "arrived" in anyway, but I am feeling a like my home is more like home again. For me, this little thing feels like a big thing, and here's hoping I can keep the ball rolling to get through my office and basement in the next few weeks...  ;)

Any tips and tricks and ideas for motivation are welcome!


  1. Yay for organizing! Feels good, doesn't it?! Good luck!

    1. Yes it does! Thanks Marya! Loved your post today for inspiration!

  2. It's great that you were able to clean that room with all that you have going on. Just keep motivated and I think your mantra is great and will help you get it done!

  3. Thanks so much for your encouragement Barbara! It sure feels good to be getting through things!
