TIME SAVING TIP OF THE WEEK

Sometimes the house just doesn't even make it through a straightening up. For example, I have one day a week that I try and run all of my errands at the same time. Mostly because I find that if I have to leave my house everyday it just chops up my days and I don't feel as productive.

Also I hate having to load and unload kids and everything else all of the time. Personally I find it exhausting.


But I'm getting off on a tangent. The point is on my errand days, my house suffers. I find that if I at least make the beds my house doesn't seem as disorganized or messy. There can be stuff all over the floor, but if my beds are made, I can actually see something that I did get done at a glance. And for me that's an uplifting thought. So make a habit of taking the time to at least throw your covers up and place your pillows on top of those beds everyday before you get too busy. You'll feel better if you do...I promise.

Now go get organized!

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN ORGANIZER

Well it's official. My website is finally up and running. dimplesintime.com
My link is off to the left hand side, so take a few minutes to check it out. I would love to get your opinion on it. It has taken me way to long to get this up, but I'm glad that it's finally in presentable shape.

My daughter is at a sleepover with her cousin and although I'm getting quite a bit done, I miss the little rug rat. I think I miss her more than she misses me. I haven't heard from her at all, which means that she is having a fabulous time with her cousin.


My son is napping for the moment and I am feeling productive today. So it's off to accomplish a little more while I have the time.


Have a great day!

TIME SAVING TIP OF THE WEEK

Look for the messiest and most disorganized space in your home
. It shouldn't be hard to find. We all have a few. Take a few moments a week to focus on a single space. If seems like we have so much to do and it's overwhelming trying to do it all. Have you noticed that most of the time we don't do any of it because we feel like if we are going to start a project we have to finish it.

It's time to change your attitude. Focus only on the worst thing that is driving you the most crazy. For me today, it was my bottom drawer in my dresser. It's been a while since I organized it, and I noticed that I was starting to have a hard time finding anything, and stuffing things in was becoming my habit. So I took ten minutes this morning to pull everything out and refold it. That's it...ten minutes and I was done!

Don't let lack of time make your home a miserable existence. Ten to fifteen minutes a week is all you need to clean that messy shelf, drawer, cupboard, or paper stack. Take a deep breath, and attack!
Now go get organized!

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN ORGANIZER

Happy Love Week!!

In honor of Valentines Day, every year my step mom puts together a little family get together with the grand kids. We go to her house and make sugar cookies. At first it wasn't so easy, and in a lot of ways it still isn't. The oldest grandchild is 5, the youngest isn't quite 2.

But one thing that I've noticed is that my mom has figured out a way to make it more simple. She prepares all of the dough and frosting prior to our coming. When we get there, she puts aprons on the kidlets and hands them each a ball of dough...have at it kids! They love it, it's like play dough you can eat. Which after spending 20 minutes man handling the dough, they do eat it...mmmm!

Just between you and me, I don't eat those cookies.

My point is, that she is all ready for us when we come. The kids roll and cut their dough, the frosting is warming up to room temperature while the cookies are baking. And the kids frost them within a few minutes out of the oven. This is great because everyone knows that a kids attention span isn't long. And yeah, there's a mess when we are done, but it's all worth it.


So if you are planning on having a party, take the time to think ahead. What can you do now that will make your party go just that much smoother and more stress free?
