Being a mom of three, running a household and a business it is very hard to stay organized and I rely on other blogs to help guide me when I’m stuck!  Mostly I live off of LISTS!  I wanted to send you to a few of my favorite sites that are a great source for information – List Plan It is  a great site with a ton of resources from those SAHM to the WAHM!  There are a ton of great business resources that help keep me organized!  She also has a great blog!

My FAVORITE site for my home and staying on top of cleaning is the FLYLADY!  There motto is 15 Minutes and that’s all you need!  I enjoy the daily emails with a list of quick reminders of what to do for that day.  It helps remind me that a little time means a lot for blessing my family and  that it doesn’t have to be perfect!

Here is a sample of a daily reminder:

Dear Friends:

Your mission for today is to grab a trash bag, set the timer and start tossing anything that is trash. Just toss toss toss. Sometimes we have hidden trash in our bedrooms, things that are disguising themselves as necessary items but really they are trash. Toss those magazines, the junk mail that has been tossed in a pile, the old perfumes that are never worn but still have a place on your dresser, the old clothes that are on the chair that need to be donated or tossed but are still there, empty tissue boxes etc. Toss toss toss!

Look around your bedroom and ask yourself if there is anything laying around that you would consider trash if it was in a hotel room. Your bedroom should be your very favorite retreat!

All that said I wanted to do some tiding up this week to get ready for Easter so I had a few ideas of my own – clean out my fireplace! If I had my way mine would look like this!

After I clean my fireplace I would then move outside and sweep my front porch off and put some flowers in the front!  – Like this!Thanks for letting me share!!!!
