Get Organized!

I have a confession to make, I'm not a very organized/super clean person. I may be able to trick you into believing I am if you come over with plenty of warning time ahead (so that I can clean all of the visible spaces!). I'm tired of the messes and the junk room, ahem, I mean office and since it's the beginning of a new year I figured why not make a few resolutions and while I'm at it HECK, I'll go ahead and make a THEME for this year...two words: GET ORGANIZED! Are you sensing my seriousness and dedication to getting this done? :)

I've been perusing Pinterest to see if I can find some inspiration. 

1. Jewelry 

I have no words to explain the current state my jewelry is in.

2. Mama's Closet


I just bought a copy of The No Brainer Wardrobe by Hayley from The Tiny Twig. I'm so excited to get through it, get my closet organized, figure out my style, and how to get dressed without all the extra time and fuss. I would love to be able to pick out an outfit and be dressed all in five minutes.

3. Tot's Room
Noah's room is a literal disaster area. I keep waiting for FEMA to show up but they never do so I guess I'm going to have to clean this one up. ;) Seriously though, my husband brought up a good point the other day, he said something along the lines of 'are we teaching Noah to be okay with living in a mess by letting his room stay like this?' I would say yes, yes we are, this has to stop!

4. Craft Room

(sigh) What can I say... the four areas in our house I mentioned above are just a mess! I'm ready for nice clean spaces that create a sense of calm and maturity. My soul feels more at ease when my surroundings are pleasant. I'm going to blog about the progress of each room to keep myself accountable. :)

What about you? Are there areas in your home/life that needs organizing? 


  1. Oh girl. We went from living in a 3000 sq ft home to a home that's just over 1400 sq ft. It's been a mess. I think I've just about tackled it. Good luck, you can do it. :)

    1. Oh wow! I bet you guys had a lot of extra stuff. I'm excited to minimize as I organize. :)

  2. I understand where you're coming from! If there's disarray near the bedroom I can barely sleep. Its overwhelming. I've been working on organizing my bathroom lately. I have too many hair products and not enough space.

    1. Same here. I don't even use half of them. I just need to throw 'em away!


Your comments make my day! I love hearing from you and making new friends! :)
