Okay, I need some feedback. I am the most unorganized person. It comes from my family. My sister's husband calls her huge piles of stuff "Amy avalanches" and the term has spread like wildfire through my family since all the woman seem to have "Amy avalanches" all over their house. I am breaking the pattern. Now.
I have sorted through all of Elijah's toys and put them into clear bins. I took a picture of each toy and taped it to the end of the bin so he can pick out the toy he wants when we pull toys for the day. I am extremely proud of myself.
I am on a kick. I actually bought a wallet. You know, one of those things that keeps your credit cards and money in one place. It is great.
So, what is one thing you did to organize that you would like to pass on? I can't wait to hear!
I learned this from taking tai chi - make every movement count.
So - how I apply this to my life is to try and make "mindful" movements - like, for example, what a PP said about never leaving a room empty-handed.
When I come home, I try to stop and think about my car - think about taking in whatever needs to be taken into the house, right then. Not waiting until later.
I label shelves to help me remember where things go. In the kids' room, they have a little shelf where I store some of their things. As I was putting it together, I used a label maker to make labels reading:
- Arts & Crafts
- Cassette tapes
