I am a disorganized person. Yes, you read that right. My calendar would appear to make me look organized but in truth it is a smoke screen. Just this last week I have forgotten three times something from the store! Add to this the chaos that envelopes my house and it feels like I am swimming in ‘things to do’ rather than celebrating what I have accomplished. Recently I was reading my friend Carmen’s blog. She blogged about her disorganization and the need for various places in her house to be organized. Now, I found this baffling. I mean every time I am at her house it looks perfect – until my kids get there and bring out every toy her son owns! It got me thinking, if her house needs to be organized and she seems so on top of it all, mine surely does. How in the world am I going to do this? I visited another blog I’m an organizing junkie. It gives practical tips on getting things organized. So I started with a list and decided to work off of it. I have one month before the boys begin school so I am giving myself a deadline for this project. So yesterday I started on my list. I started with the pantry.
Here is how it looked before.
Here is the after:
It felt SO good to actually mark off a few items as they were organized! I am hooked now! I can’t wait to get my house organized and ready for the school year. On to more organizing now!
