First of all, kudos to Stephietoo who took her organization talents to her sister and has been organization crazy in her home. you're an inspiration.....
Second of all, I'm supposed to ask, Lisa, how are you doing with Adam's room?
Hollie, how's the year's goal going in general?
OK, on to the update. It was a slow start to the week - I managed to clean up Miikayla's hair stuff (there's a lot of it...) a bit, and took care of Brayden's video games. Then, I got motivated yesterday and really went through Mikayla's closet and cupboard - Mikayla has the benefit of being the smallest among her friends, so she is the recipient of multiple hand me downs. Combine that with the fact that Mikayla has been a slow grower and I tend to buy big - and her closet was, shall we say....embarassing. So, I took out at least a third (perhaps half) of the stuff that never gets worn or has finally been outgrown - and, whew, much more managable. A big achievement for me.
While waiting 40 MINUTES in a practically empty office for Brayden's "quick follow-up" eye appt. (5 minutes longer and I was prepared to make a scene.....) I read throug February's BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS - They had some fantastic organization ideas - particularly linen closests and such. It might be worth picking up.
