My time management is suffering. How’s yours?

My time management is suffering. How’s yours?

[source] How’s your time management lately? Mine isn’t great. Actually it stinks. It needs a serious overhaul. I don’t know what it is… maybe it’s because the kids are back at school and the routine has been thrown around again… but I can’t get myself together hahaha!! Ok, it’s not that serious, but you know…Continue reading →

We’re having a bit of a clean up here today

We’re having a bit of a clean up here today

{source} It’s the long weekend so do you have anything exciting planned? We decided not to go away this weekend, but rather stay here and potter around the house. It’s been just over 2 months since we moved in and I still have tonnes of half unpacked boxes in the garage. It’s time to sortContinue reading →

How to keep school clutter under control

How to keep school clutter under control

{Originally written for Kidspot} Today I am tackling the kids school bags. This is a never ending saga! Where do I put them, how do I make sure the lunch boxes don’t start growing mould, how do I keep up with all the school notes? With three boys, this isn’t an easy task. They aren’t cleanContinue reading →

How to organise your linen cupboard – I did it!

How to organise your linen cupboard – I did it!

I’m lucky… I very rarely organise my own linen cupboard. My Mum does it for me! When I went to New York last year, she stayed at my house and as soon as I got home I went straight to my linen cupboard. It was perfect! That was 5 months ago. It didn’t last veryContinue reading →

I have a wart on my face

I have a wart on my face

Really, I do. Well I don’t know what it is, but I reckon it’s a wart. What does this mean?? Am I going to turn in to a witch (yes, ha-ha, my husband says I already am one)? Anyway, WHO GETS A WART ON THEIR FACE? Actually, everyone in my family seems to have aContinue reading →

My new house inspiration

My new house inspiration

I bought this folder from Kikki K earlier this year and have just become motivated enough to start filling it. My 10 year old and I sat together yesterday afternoon ripping out pictures from magazines (I am a magazine junkie!) and putting them all in their sleeves. It’s getting really exciting around here. Met with myContinue reading →

Can’t find what you like, then make your own

Can’t find what you like, then make your own

Thank you so much for your response yesterday to menu planning. You’ve been a great help and an inspiration. In return, I’m going to share how I get off my butt and start a menu plan for my family. It all started with a simple list of what meals I know I can make andContinue reading →

Do you menu plan?

Do you menu plan?

 How cute is this little notepad box? My Mum bought it for me. I don’t want to use it, it’s too cute!   Do you menu plan? If so, how far in advance? I am shocking at organising what we are having for dinner in advance. I always wing it. I usually decide some timeContinue reading →

Yesterday was a day of sorting + culling. Today is more of the same.

Yesterday was a day of sorting + culling. Today is more of the same.

It all started with the new bed. Once I knew that was coming, I starting cleaning stuff and then I couldn’t stop. I did say I was ending 2011 on a clean and clutter-free note. That I am. I have pretty much been through everything in the house. Today I am sorting out everything IContinue reading →

Where do you put your cords?

I am a corda-phobe. I am allergic to them in every way. I have been writing organising posts everywhere this week. See all my posts on this blog below and over here. So here is a trick I did in my office….. What on earth do we do with all of this? Modems, cords, doubleContinue reading →

Organising, Grouping, Sorting

After my week long posts about organising (and there is another one coming tomorrow over here)… I starting doing a few things at home yesterday as my flu is subsiding (apart from all the green stuff up my nose and in my throat….you are welcome). I just thought I would share these couple of ‘grouping’Continue reading →
