Ha! I wrote two posts yesterday, so I’m TOTALLY phoning it in today!
For the past day, my FB has been all atwitter (can I say that? Am I mixing metaphors?) over this blog:
I came across their blog awhile ago, but it was brought to my attention through this article:
11 people, living in an 1,100 square foot house, and they’re all still smiling.
This morning, I sat my children down (for the gazillionth time) and pointed out to them that we have 2/3rds the size family and three times the amount of house.
And no one is smiling.
I’m admitting on the World Wide Webster that my scheduling/organizing/efficiency skills are ….. Lacking.
Remember the pictures of my well ordered bedroom? Its, um, a bit messy right now. First off, I let laundry creep back in, because there’s no where else to fold. On top of this, however, the kids felt that a sparse and well appointed room was a wonderful place to hang out, and before I knew what happened, they started squatting.
So, back to the happy, well organized family in the tiny house.
I want that. I want it baaaaaaad.
Here’s my question for you: have you done it? I especially would love to hear from anyone who wasn’t born organized, but managed to pull herself up by her bootstraps and get the job done. How did you overcome inertia? Your inner five year old? Where did you find the time/energy/drive to throw out every mother-loving thing you picked up in the house that you didn’t believe to be useful or beautiful?
I’ve read “Managers of their Homes” and “A Mother’s Rule of Life”, but neither did it for me. I got a LOT of great info from both, but I need a shove.
So- what’s working for you??
