August QotM: Organizing

Postby Mrs.Claus » Wed Aug 04, 2010 11:28 am

Okay with August comes my desire to get organised and declutter. So I start by getting out my Christmas notebook.

What helps you to organise or better yet stay organised?

The Grand Plan - revised to suit my schedule & family. Inspiration starts when the weather is cooler and I set my goals!

As someone who's moving boxes are still sitting in the living room after 2 years, I am NOT qualified to answer this question. European apartments are the size of match boxes and they only have closets on tv. I'm open to any and all suggestions. My goal for this year is to get my stuff out of the collapsing boxes and into plastic bins, then stack them and have enough room for a Christmas tree. :gbhouse:

Well, it won't start happening this month. so we shall see. My husband became unemployed in June and I gave him one month to rest and relax before I was going to put him to work organizing, but darn, he got a job. Actually we are very grateful, but I lost my house slave (err. husband). :P
