How To Organize Without The Overwhelm

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that most people like organization. I say “most” because there may be a few people who prefer the chaos that comes with not being able to find what they need, when they need it, or they enjoy constantly navigating through the landmine of toys.

I have made keeping my home tidy(ish), organized(ish) and clean(ish) a priority. It is important to me. This does not mean however that live in a Pinterest perfect world, but I also do not live in filth and disarray.

Dear Mom, Why You Need To Put Down The To-Do List

I think I border on being a workaholic.

By nature, I am a doer. The more I can get done, the better.
