Organization 101

An 8 week organizational class is being offered in my neighborhood community. Upon hearing about it, I said to myself; "You can't pass this up: 2 hours of adult, cleaning, de-clutter conversation, while hubby puts the kids in bed." Yes, please!!

In the First Class we tackled closets, laundry and the home office. I came home feeling like a new woman and ready to de-junk.

I like to think of myself as somewhere in the middle: I do have an emotional attachment to things, but I also know when it is time to just let things go. What I am in desperate need of is ORGANIZATION: how to file, sort, dispose, group, coordinate (you get the picture), I want to know where my scissors are, my kid's baby documents, my taxes, where my Christmas lights are quickly, easily, and painlessly.

I think this class just may do the trick.

If you ever get a morbid kick out of other people's stuff and their lack of or serious problems with clutter watch these shows, my family (strange put true) love 'em:

Clean House on the Style Channel. They've had a few hosts, but Nicey is the best.

Hoarders on A&E

I have watched that hoarders show...OH MY!!! That will motivate anybody to organize. I wish you would have invited me along to this class sounds fun!!

Hoarders motivates me! Plus it reminds my husband that our house isn't really that bad!

I just watched hoarders for the first time a few weeks ago (you can watch them online), and WOW, I scrubbed both of my bathrooms super clean right after. I feel so bad for the children of the people on that show.
