Cleanliness is next to Godliness...

I have always enjoyed being neat and organized. When I was a little girl I would play with my toys and put them back in their box...every time! A good example was my set of Peanuts gang finger puppets. When I was done with them I would put them back in their little holders, in order, and put them away.

After I had a family I became overwhelmed with trying to get and, more importantly, stay organized. Blogland has been a big help! Offering inspiration and ideas. Caroline over at The Feminist Housewife has been offering inspiration with a "What's in Your Fridge?" linking party.


My fridge was driving me crazy! So while Doug was putting in my new floor I decided to thoroughly clean my refrigerator. WOW!!! What a difference. And I have maintained it...for the most part...for a couple weeks. I think I could get addicted to everything being neat, clean and organized.

Very nice! Wanna come do mine now! I try to keep my fridge organized, everything has a spot and must go back in that spot (my hubby is well-trained!) But, it's the left-overs and the small containers that drive me nuts! Some days it's out of control!

Good job at keeping it organized for a while now!

Way to go girl!!! BUT be careful being so organized can become a curse or a blessing depending on how you look at it. I am addicted to being organized as you know,just don't turn into me LOL that can be a BIG problem LOL. Glad your enjoying it keep up the good work!

I agree with you! I love a well organized home. The issue I have though is having the cooperation of othe family members helping to keep it organized. I could organize my fridge, but someone else goes in and puts it back in the wrong spot, or moves things around to look for something, and then it's all a mess again.

WOW! YOU GO GIRL!!!
My fridge is 'pretty' organized ... most things have their 'own spot' ... but I have it easy ... ONLY ONE other person to deal with who opens the door. NOW if I could just get him to quit eating shredded cheese out of the package while standing inside the door I'd be a happy camper! LOL!
Great job my dear ... Mama's proud of you!!!

WOW,Awesome! After having a family, I too have become overwhelmed, and I was always organized when I was a child and single. You have inspired me.

I am honored to be a new follower:) One of our parsonages was a home from the 1900's and I so enjoyed thinking about all of the previous families who lived there.Your tales of home life reminded me of those days:) Thank you! http://visionsofpaper.blogspot.com/
