Organizing: It’s All Good!


Organization and I have been tussling lately, and I must say that I have been on the losing end. What did I do? I went straight to Google. Have you ever tried to Google “mom and organized” or “mommy organization”.  Don’t. The results are quite overwhelming. As I clicked on page after page, I began feeling more and more hopeless. I thought I just don’t have time to weed through all of this advice.

Then I ran across a blog from Mommy Kudos.



As I was reading Kristin’s posts on practical ways to get organized in 31 days, I promise the sky opened and manna began to fall. Even though the posts are from last year, the advice is timeless. Right now, I am on organizing the car. Do you hear that? It’s me breathing a sigh of relief that one day I will have a strategy for keeping the stuff that makes up my life organized.

That said. Organization? It’s all good.
