Do you remember when I created my "Home Management Guide"?
I realized that I didn't have a space to keep it...what good was it going to do my family and I if we couldn't even find it to use it??? There is a space on my counter-top that I would call one of many 'hot spots'...by the phone. Here is what it looked like BEFORE started de-cluttering it:
Yes, this picture is for real! I keep receipts here, address labels, mail that I don't know what to do with, 'things' I don't know what to do with. And, if you look closely, the skirt I wear every week for 'weigh-in' at TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) is sitting there under the 'stuff'!
Obviously, this was not going to be a help at all in my journey to de-cluttering and organization, and keeping my household running smoothly. So I took about 30 minutes, sorted through every piece of paper, item, receipt, and even found a new home for my skirt!
Now...here it is:

Everything is at my fingertips...and my family's, too!
