Do those three words make you jump for joy, sigh with sadness, or bring on an overwhelming sense of panic?! It's hard to believe that the start of a new school year is just around the corner.  Whatever emotion those words evoke, the reality is that there is a lot to get done in a very short period of time.  Time to think of school clothes, healthy lunches, back packs, school supplies, and so much more.  But don't worry – we at Organize My Chaos have donned our super hero capes and are here to save the day!  We have scoured the globe looking for the best solutions to bring calm to the chaos of 'back to school'.  Plus, there are a few of us with kids who have added our own best practices to the list when it comes to preparing for that big day.

Basics

  • Make sure you have the correct date for the first day of school.  Full day or half day? Have you arranged after school care for the children if needed?

  • Ensure children are up to date on all immunizations.  If required, mak...

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, it took me longer than a few seconds, in fact, it took me over 10 mins of searching and digging to find everything I needed.  As I walked out of the garage trying to dodge the snake-like hoses that I swear were trying to crawl up my leg, I knew what was next on my to-do list – organizing the garage.

The garden beds were raked, bulbs were hauled up and readied for storage, and plants that had to wait until now to be divided were safely tucked in new beds.  Burlap wraps were rolled up and placed...

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 about Fall Cleaning?  It’s a perfect time to get organized for the Holidays and clean up from the good ol’ days of summer.  I’m going to start with - you guessed it - my spice cabinet.  Now is the perfect time to take out all of the spices, give them a quick wipe down, and check those expiration dates (spices do lose their potency, over time, so best to discard all those old ones!).  While I have the spices out on my counter top, I’m going to wipe down the inside of the cabinet and organize t...

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 tinge of sadness that I said good-bye to our guests, yet I was filled with a sense of happiness and accomplishment at having hosted another wonderful family gathering.

With a sigh of contentment I turned around, and then reality hit. Hard. I was overwhelmed at what had to be accomplished in one short day in order to close up the cottage by the following afternoon. I took a deep breath, remembered the 10 questions to ask myself before I start organizing, and immediately felt a bit better.  As I clea...
