The Family Piggy Bank The Family Piggy Bank

Soooo disorganized!

I am determined to get this house organized! I need to get rid of some of the clutter, excess toys and clothes. The computer/craft room is the worst! It tends to store everything that doesn't have a home. We have a small house, no attic, no basement so it's a real challenge to find space for things. I wish I had one of those organizational experts come to my house!

What is the most disorganized part of your home?

What do you need to get rid of?

The most disorganized part is the basement.  It's not on my Flylady cleaning list, so it's neglected.  It's not a full, finished basement, so we don't spend time down there beyond building a fire in the woodstove or storing Christmas decorations or home-canned goods.

I declutter regularly so there's not much to get rid of.

Maybe I need to look into Flylady cleaning lists??

I tell you, they work!  I have ADHD and I cannot stay on housecleaning tasks for longer than 15 minutes at a time (I HATE housework) and these techniques have helped me a LOT.  Just a relatively few minutes a day keeps my home neat and clean and fairly organized.

Right now it would be the basement. It's a full basement but it's not finished nor heated at the moment well long moments. But other than that it would be the spare bedroom is my catch all. It's clean right now also waiting for company to come.
