It's Wednesday and it's time for Works For Me Wednesday hosted by We Are That Family. I've been spending quite a bit of time organizing various areas in my kitchen and it seems it seems that the kitchen counter is the dumping ground for mail and it was taking over. I happen to follow the blog - Virtually Organized by Debbie and received a newsletter last weekend. The newsletter peaked my curiosity about maximizing your kitchen cabinets and controlling clutter.
I encourage everyone to check out her site because she has several weblogs on Fox 43.com.
Here's some pictures of the mail and paper in the kitchen that is really out of control..
This truly was the kitchen counter, I really thought I was an organized person until I saw what this looked like..
I also thought by having a holder on the refrigerator, I was organized but look at the mess..pretty stressful..definitely not as organized as I thought I was...
I took everything and made stacks of what to keep and what was trash(more trash than good stuff here).
I bought this wire basket at Wally world and I had the files in my office..and I made different files..one for each person in the house, Things To Do, To Read, Hold File & Things to Consider...
Now - I think I'm organized and it looks like it...
Anybody want the holder that I had on the refrigerator? It's not going to be needed anymore..
This definitely works for me!
