Organizing Maintenance | Organize 365

Hubby and I are still not used to walking through this organized home. Everything seems calmer and easier now. I bet that’s what it’s like if you lose a lot of weight. You are still in awe that you DID it and nervous you will gain it back. Both of us are working harder at […]

How I Organized My Whole House In 40 Days! | Organize 365

On Easter, I quickly straightened the front hall closet. I had already cleaned the front porch and put out my spring “children” and decorations.

40 Days ~ 1 Whole House – Days 38 & 39 The Laundry Room

Let’s face it, I don’t cook. So to have a whole room related to dining is well… not me! I love the look of a wooden table, so I have stripped away the table cloth. I know the table might get damaged, but what’s the point in protecting something you never see? I FINALLY recovered […]

40 Days ~ 1 Whole House – Day 30 & 31 Main Floor and Basement Baths


These bathrooms just needed a good cleaning and straightening. I like how I have been able to incorporate my husband’s sports in these baths.
