Lets Get Organized Now, Plus Giveaway






I have had big dreams of becoming a more organized person! I'm ashamed to admit that my home is completely chaotic. I have let everything get WAY out of control over the last 5 or so year. I have never been a great housekeeper, but honestly, it's gotten way out of hand!

My biggest issue while cleaning is having WAY TOO much stuff, and not having a home for the important things.

IT'S OFFICIAL!

It is time for me to have a cleaner and organized home!

I bought this book about a year ago with great intentions of using it...
yea...
like I said, it was a year ago!


The book I found is called Organize Now! by Jennifer Ford Berry


What I really like about this book is the week by week guide to Organize your Life!


I also love her table of contents! She shows you exactly what to expect to do, and in order!


One of my favorite things though...is how she doesn't just start you out in a room! She has you organize YOUR MIND, PRIORITIES AND SCHEDULE first!


I never thought about it (which is probably why my house looks the way it is!), but you have to organize yourself before you can organize everything around you!


I love that each week she includes a checklist of goals and tips to make this progress simple and manageable! Plus....I LOVE a checklist :)


Jennifer also has great tips on how to get rid of that clutter!! Lord knows I need to do that!


She did a great job including inspirational quotes to keep you motivated as you go!


And little tips throughout


 So!! I'm going to follow this book, week by week, and blog my progress and expierence.

I LOVE for you to join me and let me know how it goes for you!

Every Sunday I'll share some of the goals and tips for the week and show you what I did that week.

 I recommend you order the book as well! You wont be disappointed.

I'm excited and think this will be a lot fun! Especially with you guys doing it along with me!

NOW...onto the giveaway! I ordered one extra Organize Now book, and would love to give it away to one of you!

  2. I'm planning on becoming organized... it's just not likely to happen until we're ready to pack up for moving for retirement (maybe next year if things come together.) Definitely need help with it - my home looks like a hoarder invaded....

  3. Sara, pretty sure this is the entire purpose of my blog, not that it necessarily happens! I'm exicted to see where you go with this. You should also check out our "Organize Me!! Sizzlin' Summer" series. It started today! Hope to see you soon.

    Pattern Party starts the 1st of each month.
