30 Organizational Challenge


"Sometimes we get so overwhelmed with what needs to be organized in our surroundings that we don’t even know where to start. This challenge is a perfect opportunity to help you FOCUS in on one room or space. Pick one area to organize in your house this month and make the COMMITMENT to yourself to get it done within the next 30 days. Concentrate your efforts one step at a time and you WILL get it done!!! I’ll be rooting you along as we move through the month of November. I want you to feel that high sense of accomplishment that comes from turning clutter and chaotic into purposeful and calm. I want that for you. What do you say, are you in?

Join me over the next 30 days and turn your goal of an organized space into a reality!"-Laura


I decided that this is probably the motivation I need to get things done. We don't have a ton of extra space in our home and my sewing/crafting area is getting way out of hand. I just don't seem to have room for everything. I need to make this space much more efficient so I can easily get to all of my sewing and crafting needs. Plus...it is practically the first thing someone sees when they walk into our home....so I would like it to be appealing to the eye...or at least not an eye sore. Also..this room has our piano that tends to be a catch all. I can't believe I am doing this, but here are pictures of the living area. I guess I am not sure what to call this room...I guess it's the Living/Sewing Room....because I spend a lot of time here. ;)

So...Have a scared you with these pics? I will have a much improved space to show you by the end of the month. Promise!

Hello! What a great space to work with, so much potential. How I wish I could come and help you with is! Sounds like you need some definite zones set up to contain the "stuff" to certain designated areas.

Good luck, I'm cheering you on!!
