I am expecting my 7th child and am due in September. I have been laid up on the couch for a few months with morning sickness or in my case all day long night is the worst sickness! My husband and kids did their best keeping the house running but a few areas are in need of a little TLC.
I am sure everyone has rooms that need some organization and a little love. Do you have linen closets that look like this….
(Sorry for the awful picture I started working on it before I took another picture)
My kids put away the laundry and the name of the game has been open the door really fast throw the linens in and slam the door shut as fast as you can so nothing falls out! Ask any 6 year old and this is how she says it should be done!
Pantries that look like this…
Offices that look like this….
This room became the catch all for anything that my husband and kids didn’t know where to put!
So here is the plan, lets tackle these spaces in our homes one at a time 15 minutes at a time. Organizing can be overwhelming and very time consuming. Who has all day to dedicate to one area of the house, I know I don’t! Everyone can find 15 minutes in a day to work on organizing. Now your projects won’t get done in a day and a big room might take a couple weeks but you will be amazed and how much can get done in one 15 minute period.
Here is the challenge, pick an area to work on and share your pictures with us on Facebook and in the comments. We can encourage each other along! I would love to hear any tips and tricks you have for organizing your spaces too!!!
Now to decide where to start!
