Have loved this site for many years now and yes, ultra daggy, but it makes sense.
I like the 21 (or whatever number it is) Fling Boogie, although I haven't seemed to have moved past Baby Steps.
Now that I've read your post, I'll have to go and shine my sink ... I was going to leave mine until the morning :-(

Great advice I will check them out. I already do the taking things with me thing. So many items to return to children's bedrooms I just thank my lucky stars we don't have a two storey house. I can actually already feel myself turning into my mother, with things in containers, and always obsessively put away. !! xoxo

thanks for the links! i know exactly what you are saying. i work part time with two small children and also made this year my year to "declutter". i forbid anything to be just left on top of the bookshelf, the bench or the piano - and it makes me heart glad to see these spaces without piles of papers, childs shoe, a haor clip... i feel a little more in countrol. :)

Hi - I only recently found your blog and am loving it so much! I too am using 2010 as the year to organise and de-clutter, especially with 5 of us in a tiny weatherboard cottage... Thank you for the links and tips I am off to clear all horizontal surfaces:) I just love your beautiful sewing! Embroidering French monograms is one of my favourite things to do:) Have a lovely day - Tina.

Those photos are gorgeous!
Yes, I love flylady (although I no longer subscribe to the emails I have my room task lists all set up and work through various zones each month) and keeping the coffee table, dining table, desk and kitchen counters clear makes me feel much more in control of things. Of course, sometimes it feels like an awful lot of work but it is definitely worth it.
Now, if I could just figure out a way to get our clothes storage issues under control I'd be one happy mama!!

now I've heard of flylady!!!! I've just spend 10 minutes picking up the clutter, putting things in homes so I can wash the floors tonight! I joke that if I was going to be stuffed like an animal when I die in a favourite pose it would probably be picking things up off the floor! And that includes my husband's stuff too!!!!!

lovely photos! must check out those links!

The reason shining your sink works is because you can't shine it when it is full of dishes so it really makes you clean up all the dishes and while your at it the kitchen. Seems to work for me.

I will have to check out the other sites.

Great links and I agree that decluttering is the best motivational therapy!!

In my opinion, material of this article is very useful.

Popping over from Flickr. :) I've been a Flybaby since 2007 and I must say that though she seemed totally corny at first, I have really grown to love her. She has most definitely changed my life in good ways when it comes to maintaining order in my house. I even have a few friends now who joke to me that I should be their life coach so they can have a clean house too. LOL. :)
