I LOVE ORGANIZING.
If it were up to me and my budget, my home would be a fully organized one. I do what I can with what I have, but man... I could do so much MORE!
I hate clutter, I hate if there is no order to things, I hate uncleanliness, and I absolutely have to have everything organized and in its place. Boxes, bins, separators, shelves, and dividers- I love everything to be organized, neat, and easy to access. Aside from home organization, my life must be organized. That's where my "bible" comes in to play... If it is not written down, I will not remember nor will I do anything about it. Planner, calendars, month long lists, checklists, labels, and much more are a necessity in my life.
In fact, you could say Husband and I argue mostly about organization and cleanliness (can you tell we are still newlyweds?). Husband is a man which usually entails an unorganized, not completely clean lifestyle (my definition of such things, that is). Opposite of him, I am a very neat, organized, picky woman who has a place for everything and anything. If shoes are left out in the open and if things are not put back once used, I go MAD.
I am about to share with you blogs that I follow that have me going crazy. Why do they do that to me? Because I read them and I must reorganize. I read them and I look forward to having my own house that I can redo, organize, and fix up. I read them and I love them- yes, the blogs, but more so the masterminds behind these blogs because they are just like me! They make me excited, giddy, and so passionate for organization (yes, I am PASSIONATE about organization- sue me!). So, here you go...
iHeart Organizing - This woman is a GENIUS. She can take a room and make it twenty thousand times more efficient than it was before. She also has an Etsy shop where she has many different checklists and labels available. Check both her blog and shop!
A Bowl Full of Lemons - This wonderful lady introduced me to the wonderful world of Erin Condren (which I am posting next). She has fantastic ideas on how to basically keep your whole life organized.
Erin Condren - Oh my freaking goodness... How have I never heard of this site before? I have been looking for the planner of my dreams and have FINALLY found it here! Not to mention all the other awesome things like personalized stationary, invitations, cards, labels, stickers, etc. Husband was so kind to let me use some extra money and get my very own personalized planner that will last me until December 2012! He knows what keeps me sane and happy... :D
Perfectly Pretty - This a fairly new blog that I have been following and so far... I like what I see/read! Her home is amazing and I am officially jealous (not really, but you know what I mean). Check it out!
Young House Love - This is a cute blog! Still a young family, they are trying to turn their first house into a home and I love watching the progress of it all! It makes me quite excited for my first home which we will have *fingers crossed* SOON! Great organizing, great ideas, great blog.
Centsational Girl - Luxurious living on a dime- I love this! What great, unique, and stylish taste and all DIY and CHEAP! Check this blog out!
I'm an Organizing Junkie - This blog name could possibly be me in two words. Love this website and love all of the ideas.
Pinterest - Okay, this site ROCKS. Basically, you collect things you like and make a pinboard out of it- virtual pinboard YEAH! Got a wedding to plan? Pinterest. Got a room you want to re-do? Pinterest. Want to gather all of your favorite recipes in one place? Pinterest.
Man, I could spend hours on all of these websites and blogs. I could also spend hours organizing, redecorating, and redesigning. One of these days when Husband and I have money and a home, you can bet your bottom dollar that I will be doing all of these things on a most consistent basis.
Darn. I am going into the wrong profession... I think it is time to change my major to interior design. Again.
