Organizing in 2017

hot mess

Monday morning and it is time to start another week…. or are you one of those people who are off for Martin Luther King Day?

Today, I am going to talk about organizing.  I’m sure there are one or two of you who have it on your New Year’s Resolution list, right?  Honestly, I can be a “hot mess” despite my best efforts to organize. You would think having a business with AMAZING organizational products I would be organized, right?

A two floor condo allows you certain perks – I am sure these are not in the sales brochure. The first floor of my home is always neat with some dust bunnies taking up residence. Most days they feel safe but there are occasions when they should fear for their life.  Things are put away for the most part.  There are certain areas – like the coffee table which has become a tiny office for hubby since I have claimed the lower level of the condo.  He has small, neat, “organized” piles.  The basket of bills in the foyer is now under control with the new system of sorting as the mail comes in the house.  Hubby is a once a month bill payer so the basket gets cleaned out then whether it needs it or not.  We have the “lived in look” as far as decorating.  I believe (finally) people stopping are here to see us not how clean (or messy) our house is, right? A girl can dream…..

Then you go to the second floor which consists of the family room, my office and Belinda’s bedroom. Yes, it will always be her room even though she is grown and married.  Lately, I have been thinking (the first step, right?) on what is the best way to organize the family room AND my office so it works for me and my business.  I mean, I am the one who spends most of their time down there, right? I have an “organized mess”. I know where things are but I am sure the set-up is not efficient and costs me a lot of time when I am looking for something.  Have I described your home or office?  Maybe you have small children or you work from home too.  Whatever the case, there is always room to get more organized.  Of course cleaning out (tossing and donating) stuff too helps.  I am doing it a little bit at a time.

Does your pantry need help? The chalk fronts on some of the Your Way Cubes and Rectangles let you mark what is in them and then wipe off and change it to something else.
