Dear Mrs. Chaos,
How in the world do I find my house under all this Christmas Mess?
Struggling and Overwhelmed!
Read more to find out how Mrs. Chaos tackles her un-decoration after the Christmas season.
Since the bathroom is such an important part of our homes, it is imperative we keep this space organized.
This room is used to start and end your day.
We try to incorporate into our daily challenges on social media quick tasks that go a long way to keeping you on track with getting and staying organized. This week’s challenges were centered around the bathroom.
“Your home needs to be a place of calm, peace and fun,” Stewart says. “Focus on more of the family, and less on the stuff.”
Identify one financial struggle or insecurity you have. Do you spend too much on food or clothing? Are your bills piling up because you don’t have a budget? Do you spend when you are stressed?
Perhaps it’s the spirit of competition or the need to belong to something greater than ourselves, regardless the reason football is king in the South. From Friday night lights to college tailgating and NFL teams, we love it all.
Welcome to our newest guest blogger, Ann Marie Stewart, who is all about minimalism! She’s been gracious enough to share some of her tips on how to clear that closet clutter!
…I managed to pull a few things from the rooms that were not being toured which made me feel a teensy bit better. I did make a point to add buy more Christmas decorations to my to-do list…Christmas décor is not clutter free.

Are you worn out from the hustle and bustle of Christmas? Feeling overwhelmed? Do you keep starting and not finishing your tasks because of the distraction of so many “to do’s” on your plate? Grab your coffee (or cocktail) and a pen and paper, sit down and read for just 3 minutes. I’ll keep it short!
Do you find it getting harder and harder to find the right gift for certain people on your list? I think we have all been in this position. As the world moves toward a less is more mentality, this predicament is becoming even more prevalent. I have come to know that experiences trump most things, and the gift of an experience outlives that of a trinket or latest gadget - that’s why our family does a “staycation” instead.
