Let's Get Organized!



Ilyanla Organize My Life!

I'm pretty sure I'm getting Oprah people mixed up there. 

See that cute little Rifle Paper Co notebook?  Well, inside is the stuff of pure evil.  A list.  Of things.  I NEEED TO ORGANIZE!  Argh!

I'm admittedly not very organized.  It drives me crazy and drives everyone around me crazy.  I wasn't always this way, but something about having kids has made me put things like "having real places for things" on the back burner.  In fact, if you peak over the mug o' le pens in the picture above you see a nice little bin full of stuff that needs a place.  Soo I'm going to try to tackle some projects and not have a melt down.  Any advice?  I just tried typing "organizing" into Pinterest and now I need a glass of wine and a xanax.

Also, can we talk about some of the ridiculous "organization tips" on Pinterest.  Hang a rake upside down to organize your necklaces!!!  Hahahahahahahahaha. klasdjfh.a kwgrapw, GILIEFGJ

Ok, so this is not so much a post from which you can derive any sort of inspiration.  It's more a cry for help Help me, Oprah!

 I plan on starting with the spot that drives me the most insane (the kitchen hutch) and working from there.  

I'll keep you updated.   

Update: The hutch is clean! One item crossed off my list. It's a start.

  1. HILARIOUS. I've always thought it was okay to, while "organizing", make another pile of "I'll deal with it later"... which then becomes the bane of our household. It totally goes against the #1 rule of organizing, OHIO: Only Handle It Once. Yeah right. Put whatever you don't want to deal with in a pile, and "organize" the rest! Good luck, have fun!

  4. I love the color of that hutch! Wish I had a place to hide rubbish when friends come over. But more importantly, about that back-diving baby...my middle daughter was horrible about this, and an elderly relative said, "Honey, she's trying to see what's behind her. Flip her 'round!" I started carrying her with her back to me, and she was like a different baby! (If you've already tried and it didn't work, just ignore me and show me some more pretty pictures) ;)

    1. Thanks! That definitely works! He just wants to do everything his brother's doing, which is unfortunate for him because he can't walk yet (but he doesn't know that)

  5. I had a friend whose son did that every time his mom was holding him and engaged in a conversation. He did that once at my house and arched his back too hard,too fast and too quick for his mom to catch or stop him and flipped back like that out of her arms hitting the top of my marble cocktail table. He knocked his two front baby teeth.. and we had to rush him emergency to the dentist.So I always think of that when I see babies doing that. I felt terrible. He was ok, fortunately it was the baby teeth.

    1. OMG! That's awful! I can totally see how that would happen. They are quick little suckers, those babies. We had some close calls early on. It probably happens a lot
