My Favorite Things Friday Link Party ~ #28 & Getting Organized Where to Begin?

Pin It
Hello all,
  I was in such horrible pain with my shoulder & my back yesterday that I didn't feel like getting on 
the computer, so sorry for the delay but the party is here now!

First though, I wanted to share with you a great website I stumbled upon the other day
called FlyLady. She has given me the inspiration of where to begin with getting
my house organized. If you are like me (4 kids or 1) then you know how quickly
the house can get wrecked. I have been feeling like the house is taking over here lately. 
I mean between the dishes in the sink, to the overflowing clothes in the laundry room, to 
the massive amount of toys that need to be put in their places.
I pick up here & there, I try to vacuum the downstairs twice a day, and start a load of clothes, help with homework, empty the dishes, & start dinner, then it's bath time, then there are clothes to fold...
I am just all over the place
& I feel like with as much as I get done each day, I feel that I can never get
caught up. 

today is different, TODAY is the day I get back on track!
So let's start to Simplify 2012 together with the kitchen!
You should read the post about starting with a clean sink & why.
You just have to make it a priority & don't let it get the best of you! 

Anyways I have a nice clean sink, all the counters are clean & you can see them lol,
everything is wiped down & disinfected (which makes a germ-a-phobe like me feel at ease)
& I am making an announcement tonight that all dirty dishes go straight into the dishwasher after a 
quick rinse. This way the sink is always ready for when I need to prep for dinner.
I feel SO much better already & motivated to move onto the next step.

Much Love

Alright so onto the par-tay this week!

or recipes, but you can link up whatever you link
