Purge, Overhaul and Organize!

 Waking up early is normal for me. The older I get, the less sleep I get. Sometimes I just lay in bed and watch old movies or read. Sometimes I get up and make a FULL breakfast for the P's. And other times you might find me dusting, redecorating my fireplace mantel or sometimes even laundry. Not so this morning. When I woke up at 3:26 am today I decided to sit down with my laptop and catch up on some of the blogs I follow.

    Organizing Made Fun came first. I love Becky's blog, she has THE best ideas for keeping your house clean and organized. But Fun? Is it Fun to organize I asked myself? I LOVE a clean home. I LOVE a home with NO clutter. But organized? Nope, that's NOT me {must be the creative side}.You may wonder how in the world can I, Mrs.P, have a clutter-free, clean home and NOT be organized. I will let you in on one of my deep dark secrets. I SHOVE everything, and I DO mean everything, into drawers, cabinets and closets. Yes it's true, and it drives Mr.P NUTS!* Becky posted a blog today which included 8 other women who have organizing blogs. Each one, taking a particular room in their home, performed feats of organizing skills.
  I tell you dear friends, the light shown down on me this early Saturday morning....the last day of March in the year of our Lord 2012. I am INSPIRED!  I am STRONG! I am DETERMINED! I quickly started a running list of great organizing ideas that our home NEEDS.
  I am determined to start with Elizabeth's closet. As her year long Debutante Commitments are coming to a close in May we MUST find a place for ALL of the formals we have acquired. I hate putting clothes away in her closet. It truly is an aerobic workout! I usually come out breathing heavy and sporting a red face. I have to bodily shove clothes into her drawers. Now I have a solution....and I am truly excited about the prospect of getting in there and gettin' biz-aay! Purge, overhaul and organize! I am posting this link for you today. I hope you find some inspiration as well and maybe, just maybe our little corner of the world will be a bit more organized! 



Elizabeth's room. Semi-clean and organized here. Closet is in the far right corner. We will post "after" photos! By the way, that's E up there in Bradley Red.
