January is Organization Month

I don’t know about you, but my house gets all out of sorts during the month of December.

Here is a list of the many things that I find challenging during the month of December:

  • taking down year round decorations to make room for holiday ones
  • storing holiday baking
  • organizing gift wrapping and making room to wrap gifts
  • storing gifts
  • storing wrapped gifts
  • putting away gift wrapping items
  • finding a new home for new gifts
  • making room for the Christmas Tree

I’m sure there are more things, but between all of this and the holiday craziness, our house seems to go upside down and I end up spending the month of January getting back to normal, re-organizing and sorting!

I am starting to get better at getting rid of things. I have been known to be a bit of a pack rat and this does not serve me well as we live in a small house. As the kids grow, they outgrow clothing and toys like they are going out of style. Let alone the mountains of “stuff” that I keep “just in case”.

So, this month, I’d love for you to join me as I share some of my organizing adventures with you.

I’d love to hear some of yours too, your challenges, obstacles and success stories!

If you have any before and after photos that you would like to share, I’d love to post them on Multi-Testing Mommy for everyone to see!

    Great minds think alike! I just started my Clutter Control series yesterday too with a post about underwear drawers: http://www.thismomloves.blogspot.com/2012/01/clutter-control-1-underwear-drawer.html
    Good luck with your adventures!

    I just read your tweet about all you’re donating. Great job organizing and culling your house of no-longer-wanted items!
