Today’s challenge has to do with your photos. This is a topic that is near and dear to my heart. I take photos…..a lot of photos. My kids have pretty much every moment of their lives documented in photos. My oldest son’s friends tease him and say that I have a scrap book already made [...]

Today I think you need an easy challenge. After the hard work of the last couple of days you deserve to have an easy drawer to organize and it will just take minutes.  I used my hubby’s as an example, and his response was “really’, but he knows it is for the greater good of [...]

I was inspired by a blog post I ready yesterday about a couple who only have 4 glasses in their whole house.  You read that right, 4 glasses. They are part of the minimalist movement that is sweeping the country in the last 2 years. Give us a recession and we dig deep to figure [...]

Today’s challenge has to do with those elusive junk drawers. We all have them, some may have more than others. They are the drawer where things get thrown when you don’t know where something goes. But what if you took the time to empty those drawers out and find a place for everything?  The biggest [...]

Spring Organizing Challenge: Day 6

Today’s challenge is to get your papers all in order. Every day we are bombarded with incoming papers….from the mail….from the newspaper….kids papers…work papers…the list goes on and on. Often times those papers find the kitchen as their home. I am asked “why is the kitchen so hard to keep organized?” The answer is very [...]

Today’s challenge begins in your closets! So many people have too many items in their closets but they don’t know how to get rid of anything. I have my client’s use the hanger test. The hanger test is simple and takes the emotion out of choosing which clothes to get rid of! This is a [...]

Today’s challenge has you going through your house and garage looking for old paint cans, spray paint bottles, automotive fluids and other hazardous waste items that are no longer being used.  I just had this done by my husband and asked him to gather them in a box for me to dispose of.  It took him [...]

Today’s challenge has you going through your house looking for knickknacks that no longer thrill you.  Webster defines knickknacks as, ”a small trivial article usually intended for ornament”.  For me it was a Precious Moments collection that I had started collecting in high school.  Mine were donated 2 years ago after they had spent nearly10 years [...]
