I have an entire house that needs to be organized. Stuff to throw out, stuff to just put back in order, just stuff. Too much stuff.

I actually had someone come out during the holidays and redo one of my cupboards.

Here he is, hard at work.


The cupboard is certainly rearranged, but I just can’t get used to his system. He didn’t take the time to explain it to me. 😉

Seriously, though, I do have a lot of organizing to get done and not much time to do it.

Can you relate?

And I know that if I could just get to it, it would make things so much easier.

Just so you know – if you decide to hire a professional organizer, most of them work with you, not for you. They teach you their methods, which is wonderful, and get you to do the work – again, a great learning experience – but not a time saver.

So what’s the solution?

For me, it’s small chunks of time. And time spent doing other things.

Five or ten minutes here and there can make a difference. I bet I spent 15 minutes today waiting for the water to boil for pasta. And ten more while it cooked. That’s 25 minutes. I bet I could have redone my little helper’s efforts on my plastic ware cupboard. Not that I want to…it’s a nice reminder.

But you get what I mean.

What about when you’re on the phone? You could do something simple then.

Let’s face it. As ADD Moms, we have a lot of wasted time in our days, whether we mean to or not.

Let’s think about taking just a few of them each day and putting them to work.

What do you think?
