Organize your Life Party and a Giveaway!!!!

Organize your LIFE

Hello everyone!  I am sooooo excited about this post!  I have been waiting to share this with you for a long time now!  I have been wanting to host an organizing party for months now and I am finally going to do it!!!!

Back in September, when my husband and I took a weekend getaway to Florida,  I found my new favorite organizing book!  Because we were without kids, we were able to spend some quality time at the bookstore looking for books to get.  Ha, yes..that is fun for me, lol!  I love going to the bookstore, getting a coffee and flipping through the books WITHOUT the kids!

Anyway,  I found a book called Organize Now! by Jennifer Ford Berry.

What caught my attention to this book was the fact that she gives a week-by-week guide to organize your life!

I also LOVE how she includes organizing your mind, schedules and priorities and not just parts of your home!

I think you NEED to organize yourself before you can try to organize everything around you!

This book offers practical, action-oriented advice that teaches you how to organize any part of your life in less than one week. Long-term goals help keep the clutter away for the months and years to follow so you can maintain the order you create. You’ll find help with everything from time management and mental clutter to paperwork, pets, purses, toys, rooms and life events such as moving, pregnancy and celebrating the holidays.
Quick, easy-to-follow checklists let you spend more time organizing and less time reading—a perfect fit for your busy lifestyle! Countless tips help make organizing faster, easier and more effective. Special “Live Green” tips show you how to help the environment, and in many cases your wallet, by rethinking, recycling, reducing, and reusing as you organize.
