Organize Your Kitchen: It's Time to Purge

Organize Your Kitchen: It's Time to Purge

Let’s face it, the kitchen can often become one of the most cluttered spots in the house simply because we spend so much time there. It is truly the heart of a home so keeping things simple and organized can make a big difference in our lives.

Sometimes our kitchen cabinets become black holes for chipped dishes, strange utensils and unwanted platters. Now is a great time to really go through your cupboards and get rid of things that are broken, unidentifiable or that you just plain don’t ever use. To paraphrase William Morris, keep only the things you use and love.

Good Life Organizing announces new website

Good Life Organizing announces new website

Creating a new website is a bit like having a child. You have great ideas and dreams and then it takes a long time for it be ready to come into the world.  That's is what I have been doing this Spring (giving birth to a website, not a child!). Working with Shalon Ironroad of Bacon Business Management I have crafted a new and improved website that truly highlights my personality and my business.

Some of the newest highlights include:

• An FAQ page to answer your burring questions about organizing and working with a Professional Organizer,

• The Living the Good Life blog is now found directly on my website, and

• You now have easy access to my videos that give helpful tips and hints about organizing your home and life.

 

So please stop by, browse around and let me know what you think. I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Spring Fling Roundup: 32 Day of Decluttering

Spring Fling Roundup: 32 Day of Decluttering

Wow! It’s hard to believe that April is over and so is the Spring Fling! Thank you to everyone who participated even if you followed along in private. I hope each and everyone were able to tackle at least one of the Flings. This is always lots of fun and we’ll do it again in the Fall. 

 

If you missed a fling or two, here is a quick roundup for you.

 

Spring Fling Day 30: First Aid Supplies

Spring Fling Day 30: First Aid Supplies

Go through your medicine cabinet or drawer as well as any first aid kits you may have. Fling any medications like first aid ointment that have expired and check the conditions of bandages and other items. There is nothing worse needing a band-aid and it has lost all of its sticky-ness. Make a note on your shopping list of any supplies you need to replace.

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many first aid supplies you were able to fling today.

Spring Fling Day 29: Hair Products

Spring Fling Day 29: Hair Products

Look in your shower, on your bathroom counter and under your bathroom sink and go ahead and throw out those hair products (including shampoo and conditioner) that you are never going to finish using. Go ahead and admit that you are never going to use that spiking gel or strange smelling shampoo again! Dump it down the sink and then recycle the bottles

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many hair products you were able to fling today.

Spring Fling Day 28: Plastic Containers

Spring Fling Day 28: Plastic Containers

Pull out all of those Tupperware containers and old butter tubs. If they don’t have lids (or are missing the bottoms), they definitely should be flung. Decide how many you actually need and will reasonably use, keep the nicest ones and recycle the rest.


Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many plastic containers you were able to fling today.
