Well, so far today i have folded all the laundry .. umm no make that Re-folded all the clothes that were in the closet and put into piles of which i will wear and which i wont. The ones i wont wear will find a new home somewhere other than my closet or in the house lol

I now have a nearly empty closet and it looks great ( just dont look at the bed though lol) . It is hard work but it is also fun too as i have found my pearl unicorn earrings that i thought i lost in the move lol

I am getting there slowly and i dont think i will get my entire bedroom finished today but i am definatly going to get my closet done. My goal is to tackle ONE major task a day ...... our closet today the rest of the bedroom tomorrow. My DS closet saturday and his room on sunday etc.

Craft1 if you have finished organizing your house you can always come over and give me a hand keep in mind i do have 4 kids ( well one is the DH but he is a big kid like most men LOL)

Thank you again for all your help and encouragment to get this done

Sue

Craftymom - Well, how is it going? I bet you've gotten everything
all organized by now...and I bet it will really make a big
difference for you. Let me know what all you did...would love
to hear...maybe you've even come up with somemore ideas
for me!

HSma - Really glad I could start you thinking about
organizing...when you're finished you will be so surprised at the
room you will have left and 'at your fingertips' when you need
something. Good Luck!

I hope that your medical / health problems are not serious! Put the house and everything on hold...your health and well-being is the utmost priority...for you and your family! The rest will wait til another day. It's wonderful to have a mate that will help you...mine is the same...always there no matter what I need.

Take care of yourself. My wishes and prayers for a quick resolve. :}

What a great thread!

Just wanted to say you did a great job on this thread and to say THANKS for taking the time to do this! You are really helpful and your ideas are wonderful. I'm going to save your posts and refer to them when I organize various parts of the house. I thought I had things all planned out for organizing until I read some of your ideas LOL.

Thank you for your kind words...I just try to help others in
things that I can do best...one is organizing (at least that is what
others have told me).

By the way, where are you from in England? My brother-in-law
is from England...I believe it is Bradford, Yorkshire. Is that any
where near you? I don't know alot about the areas in England.

Good luck on your organizing and again, thank you and glad
I could help!

England...

I'm living in Cambridgeshire but I'm not really "from" England. I'm originally from Michigan but my home is in Texas LOL. My husband is in the Army and we're fortunate enough to be stationed here in England for a few years. We love it here!
