"I wanna get organized, let's get into organized!" Ok so that's what I have stuck in my head right now. Those words sung to Olivia Newton John's song "Let's get physical." I remember really liking that song when I was little and my mom would tell me not to sing it because it really wasn't the best song for a little girl to be singing. Haha.
I really need some more organization in my life. Desperately. Maybe it's the spring time or the fact that I keep seeing pins on Pinterest about organizing, or I just really really need it in my home. This may sound weird to some of you but sometimes I just wish I was a clean freak. Like one of those people who need everything in place so they pick up constantly. They truly live by the "everything has a place, and everything is in it's place" rule.
Uh yeah I'm not. Neither is my husband. We are not minimalist clean freaks at all. Although I would like to be more like that.
I'm not saying I want a "perfect" home.
I know that doesn't exist. Life happens.
I like homes that are cozy and you are not worried about messing up. But, in our house, sometimes it feels like clutter is taking over. Just too much stuff. Having kids really didn't help our "too much stuff" problem. They have an abundance of clothes and toys. It just doesn't feel as peaceful as I would like it to feel.
So this week (and maybe next week too) I'm focusing on cleaning and organizing. It just feels too hard to fix up and decorate the house when I know I have some spring cleaning to do. I think it would be cool to have a fresh start.
This week I hope to accomplish these things:
- Tackling the kid's toys - getting rid of some and trying to find a way to organize them
- The kids clothes - organizing them better by size and season
- Tv cabinet - straightening up that huge mess of "stuff" stashed in there
- Armoire in my bedroom
- Catching up on laundry
So that is my plan. I'm hoping that things will go good and I get a lot done this week. And to keep me in the cleaning/organizing/spring cleaning mood, here is some eye candy from Pinterest:
Can we say gorgeous?
