If you’ve been thinking about starting a blog I say “Go for it!” I recently started this one and I have done so by reading & watching You Tube videos. I’ve thought about it for a while but didn’t really know how it all worked. I started my journey in March of 2017. It’s now a month later and everything is pretty much setup. I just need to fine tune a few items and continue to add relevant content.
I’m tired of feeling bad, so I’m starting a Paleo lifestyle
I am now 43 years of age and I truly understand that I have to do better when it comes too my health. I’m one of those people who does not get enjoyment out of working out. For me its just no fun. I cannot cling to or focus on the fact that I will ” Have more energy later” or ” look & feel great in the end”. Because of all the pain I’m going through just to get this new routine started.
Like my father, I am a person who is always busy. I getting up everyday and do “stuff”. I don’t just sit around on the couch all day working the remote. Usually I’m constantly moving. I work on my organizing projects around the house in between sitting at my desk for a few hours at a time. This way Im not sitting all day long.
In effort to live a totally natural lifestyle I’m changing a lot of the habits we have… especially our habits around food. I usually shop at Costco or Sam’s Club. I do this because buying in bulk is cheaper. I ran across a cook book that I am so interested in. I’ve already ordered this cookbook and I anticipate it’s arrival….
I received this book The Fat Burning Kitchen for free… I only paid for shipping….
I figure as long as I move about on a regular basis and eat healthy, I should live a long healthy life. Our new Paleo Lifestyle is going to help tremendously. Not eating processed foods make all the difference in the world in how we feel. Personally I do not feel my best. I’m quite sure it’s due to my eating habits.
If you will notice I say start a Paleo lifestyle…. and not start a Paleo diet. I learned long ago that “diets” do not work…. to me diets are like medicine. They are nothing more than temporary band aids for a problem. I don’t want a temporary fix. I want a permanent solution. I want to eat tasty, healthy meals on a daily basis. Really…..how much is that to ask. Once I receive my new cook books I’ll keep you posted on our progress. Feel free to order your own copy and keep in touch and let me know what you think. We can be each others accountability partner. I know I’ll need one… 🙂 How about you?

I have a Tiny Laundry space by design. Learning what works for you & your family is what is always best when your trying to become more organized. In our case, we were forced to rebuild our home due to being hit by a Tornado back on 4/3/12.
This disaster gave me the opportunity to recreate our entire home exactly how I wanted it. Wow!!! was I excited & seized the opportunity. One of my chores that I don’t like completing is folding laundry. I absolutely despise it. I had to be honest with myself and be sure to create a functional space that I could manage. If I had built a large Laundry space with a big folding table as seen below, I would have been creating my own problems.
I absolutely love this laundry space but….
This would have turned into a catch all area. The freshly washed clothes would have ended up sitting on the table and I would come up with every excuse in the book not to immediately fold & hang the clothes. Therefore, I created a small laundry area that works well for me. It’s small & functional. It’s just enough space to wash, dry & immediately fold and or hang our clothing. Not to mention it’s in our Master bathroom suite area near the closet. So when showering, our clothes end up going right into the sorting hamper. Talk about convenient.
I love this & it work’s sooooooooo well for us.
This space was designed/built for the washer & dryer to sit side by side (which is why you can see the dryer vent & power cord). After a while of living with them side by side I wanted to stack the appliances to save space. Currently I feel like I want a new style Top Loader which doesn’t have the center agitator. If you have had a Front loader but switched too the new Top Loader (any brand) that I speak of Id love to hear your opinion. Currently Im thinking about going with these.
I love the fact that it doesn’t have an agitator in the center.
As a professional Organizer I urge you if possible to design your spaces so that they work well for you. It doesn’t matter that it’s not a typical setup. What matters most is that it makes your day to day life simple. When things are simple they are so much easier to keep organized. I ask you what laundry dilemmas are you experiencing? Is the flow not ideal? or maybe you feel like you dont have enough space. Let me know, Id love to help you in any way I can.
