Sounds fun! Bummer I didn't take before pics of a few projects I've done this month! As long as my ebay purchases come on time I should be able to get you my ENORMOUS pantry project pics! Here is a link to my pantry after I'd already started orgainizing it (I don't have a true before) http://www.flickr.com/photos/56152083@N05/5454424558/

I'm a new follower. I keep things simple by having a routine, like always making the bed in the morning, doing dishes at a certain time, etc. That way it makes major cleaning and organizing not as "major."

I am a new follower! I try to keep things simple by being organized - if there's not a place for it, I don't keep it, and if I don't have room to make a place for it, I don't need it. THanks!

I'm a new follower :) My favorite tip is to have a white board in my office, to list off things that need to get done, and erase or cross out as they get finished. It helps motivate me to accomplish things! :)

I follow via GFC and I use a lot of different baskets and bins to keep my son's toys organized. We also have a basket on the stairs so that stuff that belongs upstairs can easily not get cluttered downstairs. Works for us!

Following your blog!

I moved last week. Something very helpful in the "simplification" process of moving was getting in touch with my friend who also recently moved and offering him things that I didn't need at my new house. I ended up giving him end tables, lamps, linens and some kitchen stuff. It was a win-win!

Shae Johnson said...

I am a follower. One of the best tips I have from experience, regarding organization is to SIMPLIFY. Get rid of things you don't use on a regular basis.

my fav organization tip is have storage places for right when you come in the house- that way it is all organized when you first come home at night. I used to loose my keys too much prior to making a system

Rachel said...

A tip? Hmmm, try to keep an eye on what the kids actually play with and just make disappear things that they're not using frequently. They never notice and it keeps clutter down.

I'm your public GFC follower Rae T. (Auqakuh).

My favourite organization/simplification tip applies to decluttering, small or large projects. Start with organizing like objects with like objects first and make decisions on whether or not you will keep, donate, trash at the end. It really speeds things up for me. :) Thanks!

Now to continue working on my 11th hour photo submissions! :)

I follow via GFC and my best tip is to use containers and LABEL!
I did not realize the how much easier things were to organize by labeling....and there is no excuse for everyone to ask me where something is and not to put back where it belongs!
