Well this week has definitely turned into an organizing week for me. Best way to get started on this challenge is to clear out the clutter! Don't you agree? (did I just rhyme?) If you know me you'll know that I have "organized clutter in my life". I am all right brain. I have to have everything where I can see it. If it is out of sight it is truly out of mind for me. My husband is all left brain. He loves things neat, orderly... and of course picked up off the floor. It is a constant battle in our marriage.
So, in order to become Mrs. Proverbs 31 I have to get rid of the clutter and get into the organizing. After all, a happy husband means a happy home right? Here are a few of my favorite trending "tips and tricks" to get you organized around the house. Some I have implemented some I am working on.
^ Great pull out drawer full of individual dividers. You'll never be digging in the bottom of your makeup bag again. Think of the minutes you'll shave off your "getting ready" time!
^ Fold all your sheets into one of the pillow cases. Then stack on top of each other in your linen closet. Everything will stay neat and tucked away. No more searching for random pieces of your bedding. ^
^ Keep those small cookbooks in a magazine caddy. (The best small loose cookbooks are always the ones at the grocery check out line. ^
^ Organize greeting cards with filing tabs. Now you'll always be ready for those birthdays, weddings, and thank yous. ^
^ I always have at least one sock missing. It usually ends up mysteriously in the next laundry pile. Keep it safe pinned up near the washer. If you don't find it within the next week or two. Toss. Its a lost cause. ^
^ An organized refrigerator means you'll actually eat out of it! I buy groceries once a week. I always go through and toss the day before. Then mid week I reassess what is in there. If you keep organizing and reorganizing you won't miss all those good veggies and fruits. ^
^ For those of you like me with a very small pantry. I think this is one of the easiest ways to alphabetize and get control over your spices again. Remember to throw out those beyond their expiration dates. ^
