My disorganization is driving me nuts! I can't find anything when I want it! There are crazy piles all over my house. And you know what, it's costing me money too! I had lost 2 - $2.50 Meijer Catalinas. That's worse than losing money, because at least money will keep it's value. Thankfully I had a day to use my $5 and they were saved. Phew! My frugal soul will live on!!!
But in all seriousness I need to get myself on track again. When I can't find things I need I'm tempted to just buy it instead of look for it. Not helpful with the budget OR organization. It is also a huge emotional drain for me when things are disorganized. I did FlyLady several years ago and it helped TREMENDOUSLY!!! I'm jumping back on the FlyWagon and getting up early, dressed to my shoes, and starting a routine again!
Last week was a new beginning. There's been a huge change around here and I'm not turning back!
Here's my Morning Routine, it will change once the piles are gone:
- Transfer Load of Laundry to Dryer(I love the timer on my washer!), Start another load if necessary
- Master Bath is wiped down/straightened up
- Make my bed and straighten bedroom
- Make a clean sweep through the 1st floor picking up things that are out of place
- Attack a pile and put the stuff away RIGHT!!!
- Fold Laundry and put away
Jumping in and becoming more organized Works For Me and is a much Finer Thing!!! Here's another slip for the Tip Jar!
