I can't believe April is over already - these weeks are definitely flying! For me, this month has been about reassessing and reflecting on what's important in life. Have you ever reached that point where life is so hectic you realise you need to make changes before you go under? I'm so glad I have people in my life that help to steer me in the right direction - and thankyou so much to many of you for the supportive messages, I was beyond touched!
I shared our kids' craft area - one of the most used spots in the house by our children.
It is a great set-up because we can store and easily access a lot of their craft items and have the bulkier supplies e.g. playdough, paint, stamps etc in the nearby kitchen cupboard. Have you got a kids-only craft zone in your house?
I dabbled with my inner creative side and lined our console drawers with decorative wrapping paper. Still loving this happy sight every time I open a drawer!
And although they're not technically housed in the laundry, I had to sort out my food storage container cupboard as it was driving me nuts. Separating the different shaped lids has been a life-changer! Can your life be changed by sorting out lids? I think so! :)
I had some interesting and funny comments from friends and family after I shared how I stay on top of household chores - but I know I go a bit crazy if things aren't in order! It's part of my Type-A personality :) Really, I'd do anything to avoid spending 1-2 days a year doing a big clean - I'd much prefer to save my sanity and spread it out over the 12 months.
I promised you a video for this Saturday - and that is what you'll get! - with a tour of our laundry cupboards and how I managed to organise it cheaply using supplies we already have. Stay tuned!
How has your month been? Have you managed to achieve any organising projects around your house?
