To Organize or Not To?.... That Is The Question

I like to think that I am an organized person .. BUT seriously ladies I am not even if on a good day I really seem like it. I LOVE the thought of all the containers and cute labels, ect .... seriously I do!! I do try and try as I might somehow I always fall apart and my house looks like someone dropped a bomb on it.

On that note .... I would like to share one thing I have found that has helped keep 2 things in my house organized perfectly and easily. You can use it in so many ways it's just crazy and if I had not seen it somewhere (like The TODAY Show r something) I would have never thought of it myself.

SHOE BAG!!! Yup, just a clear shoe bag that you attach to the back of your door..... or in my case one on each side of the playroom door until I find a different door for my stuff. teeheehe

One of the has all of Maddie's art stuff .. crayons, markers, glue sticks, scissors (higher pocket for when little friends are over), little notepads, colored pencils ... the list goes on and on. The best part is she put it away and SO FAR her friends do as well which makes me a happy Mom!! :)

My shoe bag has ribbon and is sorted by color. You can use it in a pantry for Gladware containers and tops ... I am always loosing those darn tops. The possibilities are endless.

So go for it ... organize or not .. that's a question you'll have to answer for yourself. :)
