Being Disorganized is Costing Me - Big Time!

Tuesday's Tips Button

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!!!
  • Devotions
  • 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!

Have you used FlyLady?  Or do you have a great organizational system?  Love to hear it in the comments. 

Now's your chance to leave a tip.  If you have a blog you can link it here.  Please make sure it links to the page of your post, and leave a link back here to your wonderful hostess!  If you don't have a blog, share your tips in the comments.  I'd love to hear them!

Thanks for following my blog! I totally feel your pain on not being able to find things. I've decluttered like crazy since starting my blog last fall, and just today am freaking out about a VERY important paper that still hasn't turned up!

I look forward to everyone's responses. I am terribly disorganized. I have tried flylady and it just doesn't seem to work for me...

I've never heard of fly lady. I'll have to give that a whirl.

I tried FlyLady once, and the emails completely overwhelmed me, so I quit. (Not a good excuse, I know!) I need to hop back on that train, though, and get myself disciplined.
