I have issues – I like to clean when I am nervous. But there is not much I can clean around my place, since everything is out of order, paint is wet, tools are everywhere, and boxes are stacked in front or most things I’d like to scrub, dust or organize. I was able to get into the closet where all our homeschool/activity fun is kept, so I used that to quell my panic.
I am not an innate organizer, so I follow directions that I learn from magazine articles and organizationally gifted pals – ‘put like with like’ and ‘make it easier to put away than to take out’. I put things we use more frequently in the most accessible places and the others in the harder to reach spots.
