Blog Surfing

Growing up in Southern California, I always wanted to learn how to surf. I just never had the opportunity to do so. However that dream is still there. One day I am going to learn. Hmmm, maybe a trip to Hawaii is in order to take some surf lessons ;)

Anyways, I have become very skilled at blog surfing. I start on a blog I like and then look at links they have to other interesting blogs, which in turn leads to more links and more interesting blogs. You get the picture.

While blog surfing off of Tip Junkie, I came across this great blog: The Pretty Neat Company

I am hooked! I love this blog. Why, because it is creative and the focus is on organization.

wait, before you laugh....

Yes, I am NOT organized

I am what you may call "organizationally challenged"

Well, to give myself some credit, let me say "selectively organized"

When it comes to work, I am very organized. When it comes to music, again, I am very organized. Even the folders on my laptop are organized. But that is it, the organizational buck stops here.

At home, I am a MESS! Yup, I can admit it, I am the least organized person I know when it comes to my house. My office: a pile of boxes and books {has great potential though}

It is not an unclean mess, I clean and scrub, I just clutter. Piles of paper, laundry, and projects abound. Granted each item has it's own organized pile - no dissertation papers in the sock pile ;)

I dream of a clutter free house, I aspire to have one, one day I will too - you all will see.

Until that day comes (after this last semester of school-finally) I put up with my piles, knowing the end is in site.

That is why I love this blog! The lady runs a company where she will come and organize a space for you. Even better, she will decorate the space as well!! Her site has all sorts of great tips and suggestions. She even shows examples of some of the houses she has worked on, as well as her own. If I could, I would fly her up to my little neck of the woods and hire her to give my house a complete organizational makeover!

Check out this post, where she describes how she organizes all the paperwork that comes into her house.

And look at this before and after for this clients room:



Amazing right! Give her blog a glance, and let me know, because I need the help, what are some great organization tips you have- I need them!
