Topical Tuesday

Hello! Today's topic: organization! Man am I bad at it! Chris, Mina, and I struggle with this in our tiny house. We have hot spots that are perpetual clutter catchers~the dishwasher (ours is a portable, not built in), the kitchen table, the computer desk, and the table by my chair in the living room. We got a new shelf unit the other day at Big G Ace in Hastings, to store my beads in a more ORGANIZED fashion. It was designed as a TV stand and we are using it with some nice big baskets for the beads on the shelves, and then my board can go on the top. I used to just sit it on my footstool, which ended up toppled several times. Anyone working with beads and seed beads knows what that means! UGH! Beads in the carpet and everywhere else they can fly to!
So Sunday we worked on the front porch and in the living room to organize the bead danger zone. I have to say I really do like this set up better. If you struggle with organizing your life, you might want to check out flylady.org for help in the reclaiming of your life. Very helpful tips, and encouragement to work on a little bit at a time!

I love FlyLady. Just wish I had the desire to do it! No, I really don't wish I had the desire -- I NEED to have the desire! LOL!

Yes, Angie I agree! I have been trying before bed to straighten the living room at least. I really like the tips, but by the time I wade through all the emails I have even less energy than I started with! It does give quick and helpful advice for making less clutter in your life though!
