I am one of those people that has to have Everything In Its Place. When we lived at the big farmhouse, which had 22 rooms and that included 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms and a glorious old Parlor, I worked very hard on Everything In It’s Place!
Someday I will write how we got this house and fixed it back the way it should have been, it was a Fairytale living there.
When we first got this house it was in very bad shape and after a year I must say it was beautiful. The News Channel even flew out to see it and had dinner at our big table with a chef to prepare the meal. Like I said, like living in a Fairytale.
We had a big board in the dining room where I could write down the agenda for the day, and positive thoughts to start the day. Foster Kids need to have organization in their lives as they never had that. Our own kids liked the board as well, as we could add appointments and everyone knew what was going on each month.
Let Me Share Some Ways To Get Organized that I hope will help you get that way. Life seems to work better when Everything Is In Its Place.

We did a Lot Of Laundry As The Kids Grew Up and I Know The Washing Machine Ate Some Of Them. Make This Lost Sock Holder – A Place In The Laundry Room To Keep Those Lonely Socks Until You Find Their Lost Mate! Don’t Forget To Add Some Cute Clothespins.
This great idea from Family Handyman helps keep everything in its place in the bathroom. Use hook-and-loop tape to attach 5-in. lengths of 2″ PVC pipe to the vanity door to hold the curling irons.
Do the same thing with 3-in. pieces of 1-1/2-in.-diameter pipe to hold the cords. Just measure your curling irons to see how long your “holsters” need to be.
An Important Organizational Habit To Get Into Is Getting The Kids Ready For The Next School Day The Night Before. We Would Always Get School Clothes Out, Baths Done, and Any Extra Things Needed For The Next Day.
