Today's Show us your life at Kelly's Korner is Organization Tips!
If you don't already know, my hubby is OCD about things being neat and in their correct place. Something could be covered in dust and dirt, but as long as it is "where is belongs" he couldn't care less! That being said, I have become uber organized since we got married : )
My most organized item is our finances. I have us budgeted out pretty much to the penny throughout September of this year. I know, it sounds crazy, but this way we are able to save for the things we want to do, and don't have any unexpected things like birthday gifts, weddings, baby showers, etc. It works out great. I keep a spreadsheet that I use as our checkbook that I update every morning. It keeps me grounded and I always know exactly what we can afford, where our money is going, and how much we are saving.
My bathroom is the next most organized thing. I have baskets for everything! My stuff that I use on a regular basis lives in one basket, and my make-up lives in another. I pull these baskets out each morning when I get out of the shower, and empty out the products that I will use that day. Then, I put them back as I use them. After I'm done getting ready, I put both baskets back under the sink, and volia! a clutter free bathroom! I also have two other baskets with stuff that I don't use all the time, special lotions, perfumes, hair products...etc. These live in the closet and I rummage through them when I am looking for something.
My closet also hosts a parade of baskets. I have a basket for everything! Bracelets, Necklaces, Belts, Scarves, Pins, Sunglasses...you name it, it gets a basket! I guess you could call me a basket lady - ha ha!
