The Attic - part 2 - Storage

A quick run through, that's the real reason I’m even in this space right now is: a) it’s 60 and cloudy so it’s not too hot b) I’ve piles of things that need to go into storage – finally took down the “winter” decoration on the DR chandelier – and I can’t even walk in the space so a quick clean out is over due… The Christmas Deco clean out will just have to wait until December. Less than an hour, things are tidy again! Plus, my daughter is nagging me to move into the 3rd fl playroom so she can…See More

Sue Triggs-Rhuda replied to Gail Blanke's discussion THROW OUT FIFTY THINGS REVIEW IN NEWSWEEK
"Kudos to you Gail for posting an unflattering review, that took guts. With all due respect to the writer, I think she missed part of the point. The way I see it, getting rid of the physical is the starting point to sorting out the mental and…"

The Email demon

Emails - friend or foe?! OK we all have them, lots of them, loads of them. I have two email accounts, my main one and a Yahoo one I use for purchases and store emails. Gail, I can't remember off the top of my head if you specifically addressed the email thing but..... This is an ongoing battle that I know everyone shares! Right now, I have 49 emails in my inbox and 399 to delete- click - 399 things hanging over my head GONE!Now I will admit I file a lot of emails in their own folders and…See More

Boy have I been meaning to get to this! and Room One: Bathroom

I've always enjoyed and learned from Gail's columns in 'Real Simple', I've even clipped a few and sent them off to friends and family so I was psyched when I saw she was writing a book, and I requested it from the library as soon as it became available. I love the whole planning/organizing process (not that I don't love my "stuff" too) so this was right up my alley, I am sharing it with my sister as well. I am about 3/4 of the way through the book and it's great, am going to re-read the parts…See More

Attic - part one - Cedar Closet

Welcome to the third floor of our house...we are lucky enough to live in an old Victorian home with (almost) a full third floor which houses my studio, girls playroom, storage spaces and a nice size closet that we lined in cedar and use for out of season storage. Now, none of these spaces are very big...in our house you keep going up, not out...but we're really fortunate that everyone kind of has a spot even if it's small.



There is so much going on on the third floor of my house that… Continue

Bedroom - My stuff

A few weeks ago, I got really tired of our bedroom being a dumping ground for everything and the last room that got house-cleaned so I spent an entire day while the girls were at school cleaning, organizing, tossing and moving furniture in our room. It is sooooo much better now. It is still a really small room with about 2 ft around all sides of the bed but all of my clothes are on "my" side of the bed, I cleaned out the pile of stuff that was accumulating in the corner, and managed to transfer… Continue

Room One: Bathroom - part 2 ... especially for Gail!

Spring sports and scouts are in full swing around here but I'm still managing to keep weeding through stuff!



One last bathroom toss: old make-up, probably ditched about 1/3 of what I had and it gave me a chance to scrub out the bag I keep it in to boot!



Total bathroom items: 6

Grand total: 6




And, especially for Gail!





Dragonflies !



And our new tidy, organized,… Continue
