***Random tips to stay organized***

Get a cheap kitchen timer and set it for 5 minutes before and after working, use that time to straighten your work space. You'll be amazed at the difference those 10 minutes make, especially as they add up!

Put up a dry erase white board, I got mine at Office Depot for $4. Use it to keep track of stuff you are low on, phone calls you need to make etc.

Clean when you are in a bad mood. Seriously if I'm really grumpy I clean out closets and drawers, I'll throw away or donate completely useless items I would have kept if I hadn't been in such a foul mood.

Keep a garbage can within reach, and DON'T be afraid to use it!

  2. I just want to add my own testimony about cleaning when grumpy. I did that this past Christmas. It's the most positive use of "negative" energy and when you're through, the house is clean and you're happy:)

  5. Oh, throwing stuff away is SO hard! What helps is going to my parents' house and seeing how much they've gathered over the years. That makes me want to throw everything away!

  6. I clean SO much better when I'm crangry (crabby and angry), Or as my kids say a sour muffin butt. It is an excellent time to do heavy yard work too, nothing like a pick axe and dirt when your ticked.
