The Key to Success???


  • Mon – CrossFit with trainer, 45 mins
  • Tues – Rest

I spent the weekend being super productive.  If you know me, you know I’m very much a Type A, obsessive-compulsive, anal-retentive kind of girl.  I can’t help it.  I am who I am.

But I ALSO inherited a bit of a hoarding gene from my Dad who got it from his Mom.  And now it seems I’ve passed it down to my sweet Gracie…because my home office put us two episodes away from being on the show Hoarders.

I’ve got some pretty big changes going on in my professional life and for me, the key to doing a good job has always being organized and prepared.  (Isn’t that the Boy Scouts’ creed??)  So I spent Saturday and Sunday cleaning my home office.  Yes, it took almost two days.  No, it’s not completely perfect yet but I’ve pretty much threatened everyone in my house that if they pull something out and don’t put it back, they will be evicted from the entire house!

I used to keep all of my scrapbooking materials in my office but I’ve now moved that up to the guest bedroom that is rarely used.  This way, I can leave it out for a day or so without fear of the girls getting into my stuff.

Also, one corner is designated as the girls’ area where Gracie does her homework and Finley irritates her draws while Gracie works.

I cannot tell you how much better I feel now that this is done.  I’ve even started working on my closet and pulled out a lot of clothes for Goodwill.  That part is still a work in progress but the goal is to have it done before January.

Are you a hoarder??

How often do you “Spring Clean”?
