Getting organized

I like to organize but really, there is only so much time in a day! Moms are busy. We have so many daily tasks such as taking care of our children, fixing dinner, keeping our house under control, running errands, cleaning, laundry, spending quality time with our children (this is different than just taking care of them), trying to fit in a little "me" time, spending time with our husband and trying to be a good friend.

I often feel torn on how to spend my time. Thankfully, my kids usually take a nap at the same time. Sometimes the first thing I want to do after they are down is just simply eat lunch, get on facebook and catch up on blog reading. But, there are also dishes to be done or there is dinner to be made. There is cleaning to be done that I don't want my 2 year old "helping" with. I like to make dinner during nap time as often as I can because it helps the evening to go smoother.

Today I read a little blog entry about organizing a bookshelf. You can find it here. Something like this is so practical and doesn't take much time. I organized our book shelf in our living room and although it's not dramatically different or amazinly gorgeous, it makes me feel good! Just doing a little thing like this everyday can make a huge difference on how organized our home is. Here are the before and after pictures of the bookshelf.

I'm going to start trying to organize just one small area of our home everyday and blog about it.
Now it's time for me to go wake and feed my sleeping babe......
