For starters...

My main goal for this blog is for it to help me (and anyone else who may need help) become better domestically. One of the main areas where I need work is organization. I got this idea from my friend's blog and did it last summer. I have to say that it has helped me TREMENDOUSLY!!! I posted this on my other blog last summer and it still looks like this. Well, mostly. :) I think that the reason it has worked so well is that everything has its place and there is nowhere else for it to go. I can't get lazy and just toss a box of granola bars wherever. I can declutter and organize, but then in a couple days it looked just like it did before. This was a fabulous solution to that problem. Here's the original post:


Well, any of you who know me AT ALL know that I am far from anything close to being organized. My house is always a wreck. Sometimes even a person like me can get tired of being messy, though. I'd been frustrated with the state of my house for awhile and then I saw something amazing that my friend Kristi did with her pantry. She actually got the idea from her friend's blog. Anyway, I figured it wouldn't hurt to try to be *somewhat* organized in at least one area of my life! So, while Bethany was at the grandparents' this week, I tackled my pantry. Kristi lent me her label maker (by the way, I will be purchasing one just like it for myself) and I made several trips so Dollar Tree and Walmart. This is the end result. Tadah!!!
It even has it's own special shaft of light!!!

Hi, Amanda, thanks for leaving me a note & thanks for being a new follower! It's so nice to meet you, you're adorable! There is always some fun going on over at my blog, so I hope you'll come back often. Believe me, I think we all struggle with disorganization to some extent.
