It’s a dilemma as old as time itself. It’s baffled everyone from parents to psychologists, and everyone, it seems, is looking for that elusive formula.
Ahhh, yes. I’m talking about organization. Such a long word for such a complicated task, don’t you think?
But there has to be some magical potion out there, right? Some set of rules to follow that will bring a new sense of clarity — and at the same time, zap away all that evil stress! Well, it’s something that I’ve been trying to master for more years than I care to admit, and it’s nice to know I’m not alone in scouting out the best organizing tips…

Because sometimes, I feel like I stay organized as a way to have more fun in life, not necessarily to get more items checked off my to-do list. Does that make sense, friends? And really, who couldn’t benefit from a bit more fun in life? Anyway, here’s next week’s question…

This holiday season I'm most looking forward to spending time with my husband and our pets, playing board games, and watching holiday movies!
