Liza! I have been terribly lax myself in posting here in the last little while (work y'know), but am aiming to get better.

If you have any little tips or tricks that has worked for you, please feel free to post them!

Julie, from a fellow pack rat!  I'm in recovery, actually, and have had some "therapy" moving 3 times in the last 3 years.  We gave away a LOT of stuff each time...and I STILL have too much!  I'm glad to hear you enjoy the tips.  [ send green star]
 
thanks February 20, 2006 9:53 AM

Thanks Lu Ann for the invite. I am a stay at home to two babies 7 months and 20 months and also 2 step daughters 8 and 9 yrs old.  My husband is a neat freak and I am a pack rat.  I sell Avon from home and my disorganization is costing me money I believe. It also has me and my husband bickering all the time.  I get so overwhelmed and this group is a great way to get my daily kick in the butt that I need.  great tips that I have read so far.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Winona, Angie, and Lorna!

Winona-I wish I had tried to start being organized at your age...good for you!

Angie - wanna trade unfinished projects? Maybe we'd get fresh energy going that way.

Lorna - it is great to have some *cheerleaders* in your / my / our corner(s), eh?

LuAnn thank you for the invite. FlyLady is awesome and I have been a member of her group for a while, but haven't been Flying much lately. This will be a great incentive.

Hi to all the Flybabies.

Hi LuAnn February 13, 2006 1:05 PM

Thanks for the invite LuAnn. I am very forgetful and unorganized in so many ways. LOL!

 I start things like crafts and never seem to finish them. Or I will start to do something and get side tracked. I wish you all the best with your group. Many blessings to you, ~Angie

Very disorganized teen February 13, 2006 7:01 AM

Hello all!

Thanks, LuAnne for the invite!

I'm Winona, I'm 16 and i have a very serious organizational *ahem* problem. I live with my mom in Maine and neither of us is any good at organizing anything. I am hoping that I will be able to learn some new techniques to try (and teach my mom).

Well, hope I can get to know you all, and that we can learn from each other.

-Winona

Hi Pamela...and of COURSE there's hope! One thing I like about the FLYLady and other such systems is that you don't have to get it all done right now.  That's my problem, is I look at the enormity of the problem (how much I have to do) and get discouraged right away and don't want to do anything.  But it can get done little by little as well!   [ send green star]

*wave* Hi, Debbie!  Nah...I wouldn't faint.  I used to be not wanting to let people in because I felt so badly about how the place looked, until I went into the apartment of another mom from my boys' school last year...then let's just say I didn't feel so bad.

for the offer of help, Ruth.  I may just come knockin' on your door.  (This group's membership already exceeds another group I started several months back!)

Nancy...um, I think your keys are with my big comb that I use (when I can find it) after washing my hair.

Glad to be able to invite you to a group, Sue!

*ahem*
Organized:
  1. Functioning within a formal structure, as in the coordination and direction of activities.
  2. Affiliated in an organization, especially a union.
  3. Efficient and methodical.
Yeah, that's me!

I understand completely, Katie...work is work and home is home and you don't want to bring work home, right?

Eleanor I can so relate about wanting to throw everything out and start over. Sometimes I wish I could do the same. However, I know that with my unorganized skills, the house would look the same within a few months.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Hello all,  thanks to LuAnn for the invite.

I am very organized in some ways, but in others, OMG.  Save me from the paperwork, cure me of the urge to stash for my art.

Glad to help where I can, hope to be helped where I need.

new memebers: Susan/LadyRavens, Anita, Rebecca, Eleanor,  Sandra and Dawn! 

Susan that's so of you! 

Anita, did you get the sink info from the website or FLYLady's book? My sink SCARES me right now.

Wow, Rebecca, you must be organized to handle all that!

Eleanor, , maybe we need to post pictures of our respective messes and let the other members vote?

Sandra, SISTER! , I'm exactly the same way.  I can organize other people's stuff LOTS easier than my own!

Hi All! February 12, 2006 10:30 AM

Thanks for the invite, LuAnn! 

I love to organize, but it doesn't help me much, because I like to organize other people or someplace away from homeWhen it comes to My stuff, I can find anything to put it off!  And it doesn't help that my fiance, whom I live w/, has piles of stuff everywhere, that, for the most part, I am not allowed to touch because he "knows where everything is", and he gets upset if I 'reorganize' it.

(I post in 14+ pt. font so that it is easier to read for people w/ visual impairments.)

I am the most disorganised.... February 12, 2006 10:27 AM

...person on the planet.  I never know where anything is.  I can spend hours sorting things but it never seems to make a bit of a difference.  Sometimes I wish I could throw everything out and start again.   [ send green star]  [ accepted]
