30 Day Organizational Challenge: Day 6 Update

Fifteen minutes has been hard to find somedays, especially on days (like yesterday) when I work for 8+ hours. This whole balancing Mom + home+ work is really hard, but I won’t make excuses. A few nights ago I spent about an hour or so, and I’ve got some organization going on already. Here’s what I worked on:

Ok, I know. It’s not perfect, but it’s definitely better than it was a few days ago!

    It’s coming along Jaime! You are doing great! Laura

  2. Jaime, can I give you an idea for your cereal storage? Throw away all the boxes and clamp the top of the bags with clothes pins or transfer the cereal into big ziplock bags. I use ziplock and just re-use the bags when the cereal is gone. That way the cereal (and chips and whatever) stays fresh longer too.

    FInd a plastic storage container that fits on your shelf and throw all the bags into it. In the morning you can put the entire container on your table and let everyone choose what cereal they want, then put it back when breakfast is over. It’s so easy!

    I throw out every box I can. When the bags are half empty there is room for more bags. That isn’t the case when they’re still in their boxes.

    Keep up the good work. I started working on my organizing project today!

    Lazy Organizer,

    Thanks for your suggestions! It’s a fabulous idea. I’ll look for an appropriate container today.
