I LOVE Organising

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I love to organise, a day doesn’t seem complete unless I have organised something.  Be it the kids closet when I put their clothes away, my inbox on the computer, my photo’s for scrapbooking, the dirty laundry or the linen cupboard.  I have to put something back in order before I end the day.  I even find it disturbingly satisfy doing ironing just to see the bottom of the basket 😕 Yes I know you don’t have to tell me how crazy I am….Our life just runs so much smoother when I know where everything is and when everything is in its place. 

But I am a normal person like you….there are occasions when I have half sorted clean laundry all over the couch, a messy kitchen and unswept floors but by the end of the day it is all sorted. I find comfort in my house being organised.  Yes I’m obsessed, but I like it that way!!

For everyone like myself, who love space-saving solutions and decluttering! I strongly recommend the website http://www.howardsstorageworld.co.uk, it has helped me so much! They don't just have products they have tips and ideas for the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, laundry, garage, kids, office, media, EVERYTHING!! They have quirky little gadgets too for around the home and car. It is very good.

I know what you mean about the bottom of the ironing basket. My husband does the ironing and he puts it on his head when it is empty and does the "empty" dance.

Hi katrina ,

I like to be organised too but have failed a bit lately. AFter reading your posts I have reorganised my craftroom and like you want to do more scrapbooking and cardmaking.

This cluttered and unorganised space was killing my creative juices and frankly I would walk in and then walk striaght out again. Now I want to go in there( just finished it today) and do some craft. thank you so much for your ideas and inspiration.

I know exactly what you mean… I am constantly organising cupboards and clothes and toys… The satisfaction is amazing and I feel that my life runs 100x better when things are clean and organised
