Hello everyone! I love the spring as the flowers are blooming and the weather is getting nicer. I’m not really a spring cleaning type of person, but it is a good time to open the windows and clear out the stagnant stuff from over the past few months. It would also be nice if the house were in better order so we can spend our weekends relaxing and enjoying the warm weather outside with friends and family.
Things are very busy around here as the school year wraps up. Lots of testing, concerts and other school events! Let’s tackle our clutter, a little bit at a time.

The Monthly Mission – Garage
As the weather is getting nicer out, it’s a great time to get into your garage and clear things out! Go through all the stuff you’ve tossed in there over the winter. (On my way out a few minutes ago, I found three bags of clothing in the garage that need to be dropped off at the thrift shop!) For more information on the monthly mission for May, click here.
Keeping the Family Organized
Amy Knapp Wall Calendar 2019 is my ALL TIME favorite calendar with its huge boxes! And it's time to order a new one! With kids in school, I find it easier to use a calendar from August to August and this 16 month one works perfectly. Plus, it's super affordable!
If you prefer to go digital, you might enjoy the Cozi Family Organizer. You can sync everyone's schedules together at no charge.
I Can't Wait!

3 Organizing Challenges that Take 15 Minutes or Less
You’re busy and you really don’t have the time to start a big organizing project. Yet, you’re tired of looking at the same piles of stuff that annoy you day in and day out. Here are three organizing challenges that will take you 15 minutes or less.
You can turn any decluttering and organizing mission into a 15 minute or less challenge by using a timer. Set your sights on a portion of a room, or part of a closet and set your timer. Break down those daunting organizing missions into short spurts of cleaning energy. If you do only 15 minutes a day, that comes to an 1 hour and 45 minutes a week. That’s a decent chunk of time, and imagine how that can begin to impact your clutter, and your stress.
Progress, not perfection! Even 15 minutes can make a difference!
