Tipping Point....

Can I just say when I started this little blog this summer I was hoping it would be a place for my girlfriends and I to share our home project failures and successes. I never imagined close to a 100 of you would stop by and enjoy our projects and share some of your own. Thanks for sticking around!

I love having followers - love it, love it, love it - but towards the end of last year I started feeling bad if I didn't post once a day, and couldn' t believe when I would go more than a week, etc.

The real tipping point that made me realize I needed a break was I found myself starting to do projects just to have something to blog when it really should be the other way around.

So....I needed a break. You know where I'm coming from, right? Right?

Anyway, I realized today I needed to start focusing a little more on my home.

I came to this realization when I sent my husband a text asking where my debit card was, he wrote back "Junk drawer" and I wrote back, "Which one?" Oops....

So I decided to use this blog (with all of you invisible friends who I'm pretending are not here and are certainly not reading this) as a way to keep myself accountable.

First, I'm tackling my clutter. My house is certainly not "Hoarders"-worthy, but there are definite hot spots. (Kids toys, maybe? Under the sink in the bathroom, anyone? Oh yeah, I'm going there.)

Then, I'm going to experiment and find a good way to keep organization part of my routine - so I don't have to ask which junk drawer ever again!

I know organization and de-cluttering are popular resolutions for the New Year and the blogosphere is full of great ideas. But I'm trying to not label this as a resolution or a temporary goal. I think in order for my home to continue progressing, it's time to get some organizational tools in check. Hope you'll follow along!


  1. whew, I think you just summed me up right now...I have been going through the kids closets...I want to have a gargage sale in the spring, so I have BAGS of clothes and toys...I just looked in my bedroom where I am storing it and thought I am one of those hoarders, I would donate it but you know with growing kids you need the little money you get to buy them bigger clothes. good luck to you

  2. This is really funny cause just today I went through my closet and my daughters closet to get more oginized. Out with the old and I can hope in the the new(or just what fits and not what I wish still fit). I have two big bags full of stuff to get rid of now.

  3. funny! I find that I'm CONSTANTLY trying to get something organized (I just finished almost all the closets)...working on my closet and the currently scary GARAGE! I need to pull the dresser out of there and get it in working order...then I can send pics! It's my Moby Dick...

  4. I love it! I've been feeling the same way about my blog. I think I write better when I try to pretend no one is reading it. I've been trying to declutter my house as well, good luck to you!!

  5. I am working on my clutter as well. I took quite a few boxes to the good will this past weekend and I feel like its only the tip of the iceberg!
