Are you living in what Marla Scilly, aka The Fly Lady, calls CHAOS? (Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome). Well then, join the club there are thousands, perhaps even millions of us!

I have struggled with organization in almost every area of my life for, well, my entire life. By starting this blog I hope to encourage others that they too can get and stay organized!

While it will probably embarrass my children for me to air the dirty laundry here, in full color photos, if it helps just one person along their own journey to getting organized and staying that way, it will have been worth it!

Decluttering in the Kitchen, again!

Well, I had this counter cleaned off awhile back, but as you can see the clutter has crept up and accumulated again.

So I just set my timer for 15 minutes and look what happened!

I even had time to go dump and rinse the compost bucket and water the worm bed while I was there. Mmmm, thinking I should probably tackle that window space soon!

My compost bucket is my old milk pail, from when I kept dairy goats when I lived in Texas. (mmm about 25 years ago!) Beat up and dented it's still going strong, being made of stainless steel. But if I needed to buy one I would probably look for one like this.

If you have a big family though, you might need to get a bigger one.

I don't go for the filters and bags things myself, I mean, whats the point? Although I can understand if you live where you can recycle your food waste through your garbage collection system and you don't have a garden, they'd be great. However, even if you live in a really small space, like an apartment you can keep a worm box and compost your food scraps. See my Edible Garden Blog for more ideas for gardening.
