Organizing

I love to organize. It is something that gets me all excited and makes me happy. I love to read books about organizing and all the tips and tricks to get your life in order. I do not however have a completely organized home. One of the blogs that I have discovered recently is called I'm an Organizing Junkie and she is hosting a 30-day Organizational Challenge for the month of November. I have decided to take the challenge. I am not sure if I will be able to complete it because I have been feeling a little under the weather lately and am low on energy. I need something to motivate me though, I have had this project on my list for a while and I am hoping that this challenge will push it to action.


My 30-day project is my office. We moved into this house in April and this is the room that has never been fully unpacked. I am not too embarrassed of it though. I know the reasons it looks this way and if others have a problem with it- its their problem. I do however know how much better life will be with a de-junked, organized room. So here I go. Cross your fingers that I can finish it in one month. Here are the Before pics (and sorry that some are sideways I am having some computer issues at the moment.) By the way, I will be posting more on this project in the future so if you want to read more click the label: Organizing.

I'll be rooting for you to get done with your project. I'm REALLY hoping the motivation helps me get through mine!! As far as filing... here's my post on what I've done with that http://a-cluttered-life.blogspot.com/2007/09/still-on-track-if-there-is-track.html. It's definitely not a COMPLETE list and I'm sure there could be more, but it's what I'm comfortable with. I've been hearing a lot about going paperless... I MIGHT actually be almost ready to think about that! :)

Just like you I love to organize, but you wouldn't know it looking at my house. It's just hard to keep it that way. Good luck on your room. It will look great when you are done.

Believe it or not my home isn't totally organized either. When you have kids that's just the way it is :)

Thanks so much for joining the challenge, I hope you can feel me cheering you on and that when you are done you have a space to call your own.

Best of luck,
Laura
