As simple as it seems to be organized, and as commonly as this term flies around, being organized can be a lifelong challenge for many. The barrier between organized and unorganized people has always been there. Unorganized people can’t figure out how other people can remain organized, and vice versa. If you are someone who has problems staying organized, it could be due to one of the five reasons stated below.
1. You Are the (Dreaded) Hoarder Type There is often one in the
How many times have you spontaneously started break-dancing in the middle of the night as you tiptoe into your child’s bedroom to check on them? How about the ‘hop on one foot and hold your breath dance’? What about the ’hand over your mouth and try not to scream’ dance? Anyone who has stepped on a piece of wayward Lego knows exactly what I am talking about. How can such a tiny piece of plastic cause such excruciating pain? I honestly don’t know, but I do know it hurts -
Crisp fresh air, cold noses, and warm fuzzy sweaters can only mean one thing – fall is here! This past weekend, I indeed pulled on a warm, fuzzy sweater, went outside and inhaled the crisp, fresh air. I soon had a cold nose. Yep, fall is upon us and so is garden clean up time. I pulled on my rubber boots, grabbed a pair of gardening gloves and off to the garage I trotted to fetch the items I needed, confident it would only take me a few seconds to locate them. Admittedly,
Wishing all our clients and followers a Happy Halloween that is safe, fun, and filled with memories!
Wondering what you are going to do with all that leftover Halloween candy (yes, I know it's a bit too early to predict that there will actually BE any leftovers, but still...). Keep these fun ideas in mind and you'll actually WANT to save some for later! Remember - this time of the year is always a little scary with goblins and ghosts - no need to try and
For those who aren’t familiar with the word pegboard, it is often described as "that thin wood with lots of little holes that holds hooks." It used to be found mainly in the basement where tools and small packages of screws would be hanging on it from a hook, or out in the garage with an assortment of lawn implements attached to it with bungee cords. The days of pegboard being relegated to the depths of the basement or hidden out in the garage are over! Pegboard has finall
Have you noticed the beautiful fall colours outside? The golds, browns, and spectacular crimson coloured leaves? Aren’t they gorgeous? They remind me of the colour of spices... warm, fragrant, and enticing spices - and spices remind me of cooking, which makes me think of the kitchen, which in turn reminds me I haven’t cleaned up my spice cabinet for quite a while! Do you regularly check your spices for expiration dates?
We always hear about Spring Cleaning, but what a
I spent the past weekend at the cottage enjoying the last long weekend of ‘summer like weather’. Mother Nature cooperated and gifted us with gorgeous weather, a soft breeze, and incredible fall foliage. A good time was had by all who attended our Thanksgiving get-together. We ate, laughed, reminisced, recalled old memories, and made new ones. As the day faded into dusk, we said our good-byes and promised to meet again next year – same place, same time. It was with a ting
Can you believe summer is over? Where has it gone? As much as I hate to see summer fade, I do love the fall and all it has to offer. The gorgeous fall flowers, the incredible fall foliage, the delicious smell of apple pie cooking, and the fresh, crisp air. Time to put away the summer things and get ready for cooler weather ahead.
This long weekend gives us just what we need to do that - an extra day we can devote to organizing. Time to declutter and put things in order so w
