Super Tip Monday- You CAN Start Small.

I will continue to say this for the rest of my life. I will remind you all of this. This is for the organized and the un-organized. I am speaking to the ones who haven’t started yet and the ones who just started AND the ones who’ve been doing it. 

It’s okay to start small and do a little at a time!!!

Any movement is still movement! You are creating a pattern and habit which will turn into a lifestyle. The progress WILL come. You WILL see it at some point and that will inspire you to continue. The alternative is doing nothing and NOTHING happens!! 

15 minutes a day. 30 minutes a day. It all adds up when you do that on a CONSISTENT basis. IT can be better than working on organizing for one day every 3 months. You will accomplish so much when you set time each day. 

Section by section, corner by corner, area by area. Room by room. You can do it!

Small steps lead to large rewards!!

Sort Out Sunday- Before You Use Your Basement For Storage or As An Office

Many people ask me about basements and are they good spaces to store stuff or make as a home office. I say YES! But here are a few things to consider before you do.

Any space below ground level are more prone to dampness, poor lighting, poor ventilation,and bugs and other creatures. Make sure its a secured space. Check the walls and floors. Is it fully covered. If there is a window down there, can it be securely closed. Also can it be opened for air. Maybe a screen over it will help with anything flying or crawling in. 

If you can put a heating/AC system in there, I say do it! The bottom line is you want great ventilation down there. Your house and your stuff will thank you! 

Make sure its well-lit. You may have to bring lights/lamps down there. Make sure all electrical outlets can handle all the plug-ins. An electrician has a device that can scan and tell you. Sometimes the basement houses the washer and dryer or an additional freezer/fridge, you want to make sure all circuits can handle any additional things you plug-in down there. 

Also check that the steps leading down are secure, with something to hold onto going up and down!

Do Your Cookbooks Have Dust on Them?

Inspired by a client of mine, she gave me a great decluttering idea.

She has a lot of cookbooks and they were taking up tons of space. So we got rid of a few old, torn ones, but there were some great ones still. SHE decided to take a cookbook and really go thru it and see if there were enough recipes she and her family would like and she started making the food from that book to see if they truly liked it.

I love that idea!

So I am going to challenge everyone, because we are trying to have IN our homes what we ACTUALLY use. If we actually USE it , then it DESERVES a place in our home.

Pick a cook book and really look through the recipes. I challenge you to make something from that book for 7 days in a row. 

If it’s not for you, then give it away or donate!

Send me some pics of your dishes too!! Yum!

Super Share Monday- 4 Tips To Better Organization!

Happy Monday everybody!!! I am excited to be here! I am happy to be alive and ready to tackle another day on Earth! I am gratitude that you are alive too and reading this blog post!!

I am going to share a few organizing things with you today. Give you something to think about and maybe try if you aren’t doing these things already.

  • GO OUT AND BUY labels. They are good for identifying where things are at a quick glance. There are all kinds of labels out there for different surfaces. They have easy peel on and off ones too. Label your drawers. Label your boxes in the garage. .Label the inside of your cabinets listing where things belong. Get a sharpie or thicker marker to write on the labels.

  • PUT A LAUNDRY BAG/BASKET in your bathroom. If you have room. Or in the room outside or next to your bathroom.  Or in your bedroom. The goal is to put it somewhere you are most likely to put your dirty clothes and towels. I say keep them near the area you shower/bathe/take off clothes after work/school/gym  Make it easy on yourself.

  • SCHEDULE SOME TIME to go in your closet and try on clothes. See what still fits or looks good or is in good shape and whats NOT. Get rid of whats not! If you are sensitive about your size, I say do it alone. For me I’ve done it with GOOD friends and they helped decide what to keep.

  • PLACE A HOOK on the backs of some of your doors. Say the bathroom door, a closet door, the bedroom door. A place for a jacket or a robe or your clothes for the next day. Don’t put too many hooks you don’t want to clutter your eyesight. I say just one good one!

Some of these may not apply to you, that’s okay, I will be super sharing more random organizing tips! Otherwise try these and see if they work for you! Have a great week!

Super Thought of the Day: Why Haven’t I Began?

Image result for organizing quotes

This is a new feature. I think all the time. LOL Some of those thoughts I want to share with you! Here is today’s thought:

So you read the quote above and it sounds soooooooo easy, right? OR does it sound sooooooo hard?

For me, its the first one. I am a do-er and i have found the more I begin projects, the easier it becomes to begin. Why? Because the unknown is abolished once you start. You SEE whats going on as you DO.

If its hard to you, its the connection and motivation you have to muster up AND the doubts of can you do it? Or it seems too hard? Or sometimes its as simple as, I don’t know where to start?

If your answer is the one of those, then i invite you to look honestly within your self and challenge yourself to start no matter what! You can always modify, edit and change after you start something! Always!

Something to think about…
