Less Is More

I use the seasonal changes to assess whether or not I really need items. I think about whether I used an item in the previous season, and if not, then it goes. I've found several organizations that will take items from me. I try to keep this process as a continuous one. I'm not constantly clearing, but I keep they cycle going. I only need a certain amount of "stuff" to function. I feel better when I'm not surrounded by junk.

Makeup setup for Mommies on the go

Before I organized my makeup area, I was always flustered trying to get my self ready and get the kids' breakfast and ready for school. Now I have a spot in the kitchen where I stand to do my makeup (a little pedastal mirror and a small basket of neccesities). Now I can serve breakfast and get my "face" ready. Kid spills something or needs more food... no problem! I take can take care of business and step back into getting pretty mode. emoticon

clearigng out a cloths closet without guilt

This isn't my idea I read it some where. At the beginning of the year take all your hanging cloths and turn them around (hanger facing the other way) as you wear and wash the cloths replace them facing the way you usually place them in the closet. At the end of the year what ever is still facing the opposite direction can be thrown out or better yet donated because you haven't worn it in a year.

linen closet

my closet can become chaotic very quickly, in order to tame the nightmare I fold my sheet sets and tuck the complete set into one of the pillow cases. they stay together,stack neatly and eliminate the need to rummage through to find matching pieces - and even the kids recognize "THEIR" bundle and can help fetch new sheets

Make A List

When I arrive at work, I make a list of what I need to get done that day. I then work according to the list. There are times when other demands pop up, but I am able to explain my situation and then the new demand can be prioritized or reassigned.

Add pics to help organize

Regardless of what you are organizing, take a picture of it, and put in on the outside of the container for an easy visual of what is there. This works well with shoes, crafting supplies, and decorations!

Create a Grouping

If you live a busy schedule like me this may help a lot with time management. Grouping some of your favorite meals has a couple of benefits. One, time management. Two, the grouping becomes a recipe holder. Three, its quicker than looking through your favorites.

Keep Sparking!!
