Organization Please!

June 26th, 2012

There’s that old saying, “I need a vacation from my vacation!” and it couldn’t be more true today.  My house is such a mess right now, the suitcases are still not unpacked, the laundry is crazy out of control, the stack of bills needs paid, the emails are many, the piles are mounting, and I’m still recovering from that exhausting red-eye return flight across the country.   Why do the kids bounce back so much faster?  

With fun and functional organization on the brain this week I wrote about it over at BH&G, here are the two most recent articles: 

ten smart ideas for family organization creative ways to display jewelry

 

Also, for a fun diversion there’s a quiz I spotted online which will diagnose your organization personality.  I was hoping for the question “what is the organizational state of your home?” and the choice of “total disaster” but it wasn’t there so I turned out to be a “party planner” type.
