We’re Organized Wednesday #5 and Guest Post with Joy from Just Organize Yourself


Giveaway is now closed!                           

I’d like to introduce you to Joy from Just Organize Yourself. How perfect is her blog name?  She has graciously let me share with you some of her great organizing tips and ideas. I especially like this one because it can apply to so many other spaces. Follow the Dump, Sort, Containerize, Toss Principle in every space of your house and before you know it you’ve got yourself one mega Organized home. So here’s Joy and remember even if you don’t have a lot of time you can still get some space in your home organized.    

Toss-It-Out Tuesday!

We are in BEDROOM zone this week!

I don’t have a lot of time today (it’s the last errand day before school gets out). But, I did make time for ONE dresser drawer. When the kids get home from school, I’m going to have each of my children clean out ONE of theirs. De-cluttering now will make the summer clean-ups so much easier which means MORE TIME FOR FUN!


  • Step #1: Dump:


  • Step #2 Sort:


  • Step #3 Containerize:
  • Step #4 Enjoy!


WHAT can you TOSS today?

    Meal planning is my downfall… I’d love something like this to help me get organized and to stave off the 4:30 dread of having nothing planned for dinner!

  • Robyn :) June 9, 2010, 6:22 pm

    I could totally use that and it is just me and my husband, soon to be just me for a year!! But I am terrible at planning meals just in my head.

    Thank you for the chance to win 🙂

    I love decluttering! Every time I read a blog post on decluttering, it motivates me to go work on another area.
