I’m working on a post about a couple of things that really help me out in the kitchen and living room. But in the mean time I was wondering… what little household helpers are really making your life easier right now?

I’m still dealing with the clutter demon. When you live in a small place, you have to be brutal in culling your possessions. That’s something I haven’t been doing. Sentimentality has not been my friend. I like to keep mementos reminding me of good times, happy things, and people I love. But when you’re so […]

Right now my sink is cluttered. Full of dishes. Yes, it is. It happens a lot when you don’t have a dishwasher, live in a small space, and have limited time. I have thought about trying the FlyLady process of keeping my sink clean every day. I’ve even worked on it a few times. image: […]

I recently helped a friend of mine clear out her house. She was moving and needed to get rid of last-minute items and do a final cleaning. We live(d) in the same condo complex and our places are the same size. She gave stuff away, donated to Goodwill, and threw a lot away. And she […]

I started reading Steph’s site, Totally Together Journal. It’s awesome! She has some great ideas there and I’ll be reading more and posting some of my thoughts about her Daily 7 and PROM. I can’t wait to see her book, which is available for pre-order through Amazon. Maybe, just maybe, I can be a little […]

I have a post in the works about using others as your motivation for getting stuff done. It’ll be ready later today or tomorrow at the latest. While we’re waiting, anything you’re working on? Having trouble with?

It’s tough sometimes. The holidays are coming too soon. My son’s one year birthday is in 3 weeks. :O Really, where does the time go? I’ve been staying up late, getting up early, and not getting enough sleep. It’s one of those vicious cycles that I’m trying so hard to break. I have things I […]

A year (or two) ago, Mrs. Kennedy (Fussy) started National Blog Posting Month, or NaBloPoMo. It was inspired by National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), in which participants write a 50,000 word novel in a month – November, to be exact. For NaBloPoMo, participants commit to blogging every day during November. It’s an exercise in writing, […]

Earlier I mentioned staying organized while traveling. And now it’s back to the usual routines. Sort of. It takes a day or two to get back into the swing after travel. I have to catch up on email, regular mail, and all the other paperwork that running a household and business entails. And I’ll need […]

Organized Mom on September 24th, 2008

I like my routines. I think I need them. It’s one thing that helps me feel in control when things are crazy. But when you travel, there’s no such thing as routine. Travel throws off my organizing routines, too. Mail lies unopened. Emails can go unanswered (spotty internet access, and all that jazz). But the […]
