I am not an organized person. I wish I was. I’ll betchya my husband wishes I was.
But, nope. Somehow I missed that special gene, and it’s a constant struggle for me.
Sheesh, keeping the dishes washed is a constant struggle for me, let alone keeping piles of toys, closets of clothes, shoes and miscellaneous junk in any sort of decent order.
So, facing the daunting task of moving with three small children in tow is more than mildly terrifying to me.
I don’t want to take all this junk with me, and I certainly don’t want to have to unpack it all from jumbled up boxes of random stuff.
Our house is officially on the market, and I am using this time (while we wait for someone to come along and pay us amazing, big $$$$ for our beautiful house, any takers?) to declutter, organize and simplify.
As a Brother Ambassador, I will be using my new Brother P-Touch Labeler to help me along in this process! (Can I say: awesomest campaign everr?!) During the next month, I get to use this labeler to help me organize my home! With this extra motivation, I am excited to get started and transform the piles of junk into tidy, functional, order!
I have a few areas that need it the worst. Here are my “before” photos. I know how to get crafty with my camera for my blog photography and usually carefully leave out the mess surrounding my recipes and projects that end up here on the blog.
But not today, folks. These are raw and real. No prepping, no careful cropping, these are the honest-to-goodness truth of my house.
I’ll be starting with my closet. I have never attempted to even create a system or order to those shelves, and we’ve lived here for six years. I think it’s about time to shape up. We could be getting so much more utility from those shelves if I had a plan.
Next up, (oh my word!) is this horrible kitchen cabinet. Yes. It pretty much always looks like this. Yes. It’s gross. Yes. I can rarely find what I want when I want it.
…and the laundry room. Jeepers, that over there to the left is still an old apple box that we used to pack stuff when we moved here. Six years ago.
So, here it goes! Cheer me on, or join me in my journey to a tidier, or more organized home! I can’t wait to show you how the P-Touch can help!
