Organize & Simplify

Hope this page will give you ideas when you are stuck in a rut, and can’t seem to get on top of the clutter.  Happy organizing! –

Ready to get organized?  Here are some ideas from Laurie Reeve’s “5-Step Organizing”  book.

She recommends taking photographs of cluttered areas.  She says, “photographs are beneficial in may ways.  Some of these benefits include the following:

  • Promotes emotional detachment
  • Removes blinders
  • Helps motivate
  • Helps maintain newly organized spaces

Take a before and after photo.  Encourage your children with a reward if they can help keep the newly organized space looking like the photo.


Just read a great idea from the book ” It’s here….somewhere”, an idea to free up a linen closet. They say to put an extra set of sheets and pillow cases in between the mattress and box spring of each bed. Get rid of all the rest of the sheets. If you don’t have time to get the sheets washed when taken off, you can use the emergency set, and then replace. How cool! Then you can use your linen closet for something else. I’ll try it!
