25 ways to get organized

While searching for ways to get better organized, I found some really cool but inexpensive ways to get your “LIFE”, organized that is! I really love these great ideas to organize my house. To whomever thought of these, BLESS YA! You are a God sent to us who have no clue and see disorganization as an overwhelming slight manic depression causing disease. Like, I have literally just given up before because it was just too much. So when I saw this I just knew I had to share.

Back when I was a kid, we’d walk the ten minutes to school in the pouring rain toting our umbrellas and like a growing snowball collect kids along the way and after school we’d knock on doors, ride bikes and play a good old fashioned game of kick the can. Not really, but you get the picture…

Loving Low-Sugar, Healthy Practices at School

4 Mothers


I was talking with two friends a few months ago about their children’s schools and they said that overall they were happy with them.  Then one woman added:  “Except for all the candy.”
