ive been trying really hard to declutter/simplify my life and house.. but everytime i get anything done i end up getting distracted, or busy doing something else and it ends up never getting finnished.

for example.. sorting out clothes. i changes around our bedroom the other day and i really like it.. then i decided to sort out the kids clothes. i went through everything and got rid of 3 garbage bags of stuff.. including recieving blankets, clothes, shoes, toys ect.. after i got rid of what i didnt want anymore i put away the stuff my son wears most of the time in his little dresser and same with my daughter, but then i had this big pile of other clothes that i wanted to organise..like socks into sock box, winter clothes to put away and a bunch of stuff that i just keep in a bin - cause im lazy, yeah.. anyways.. it was piled up on dh's bed(he sleeps on a futon in the bedroom sometimes..) and then he threw it all on the floor when he wanted to sleep and now its been days and its still on the floor!! i just cant seem to get to it and everytime i walk into the bedroom i feel irritated at myself and the mess... it would probably take me all of 15 minues to do but i dont do it.. AHHHHhH. plus whenever i do declutter/tidy the house just endsup a total mess again. even thogh we dont have many toys they are always on the floor. sometimes i just want to get rid of everything!!

While I don't really like FlyLady, one of her "11 Commandments" is (I think) to take out no more than you can take care of in one hour.

yeah, this happens to me all the time. Trying to oraganize the kids toys, I just wanted to put all the collections together in zip lock bags, then pack away most of them to rotate through, but I couldn't really do that without taking out all the toys (since they were all mixed up), which of course DD just wants to play with BAH!
