Be Up Less with the Baby

Julie shares her family’s method on being up less at night with babies.  I an remember the first time my youngest child slept a litte in the night. It was like a gift from heaven, more sleep, meant me as a more SANE mom.

100 Club- So Much Fun The Monkees Will Sing!

Here is a little musical boost for our 100 club today!  You have to be a believer to get your house tidied up!


It is Monday! Which means we are paying our 100 club dues. So grab that trash bag and clutter box and turn on some music.  Put away, donate or trash 100 items and if your children are home today have them jump in and put away as many toys as they can during perhaps one song on a CD or  this groovy Monkees’ tune..  Just tell them that Legos and Barbie Shoes count and they will probably beat you to the finish line!

The 100 club is not just for moms, it’s for the whole family!

Busy Mom, Busy Life, Getting Real Tidying Up the Laundry Room

Laundry Room Tidy

Welcome Tidy Team! Here is the newest post on Busy Mom, Busy Life, Getting Real Tidying Up!

Messy Laundry Room

So this happened in my crazy busy life. It is a mix of me not putting things away, my laundry machine husband not knowing where the dish towels go in the kitchen, and random items that cannot seem to find a home. Result, depressing clutter. The Fix!  Two simple 5 minute timer sessions.  Let’s take a look.

Almost Tidy Laundry Room

The first five-minute session was simply putting items away and organizing a shelf so that the extra trash bags would have a home.

The second session was putting my junk away. Yep, I claim the rest as stuff that needed to be line-dried and a pot that apparently wanted to nest in the laundry but was put back into the large kitchen tool closet. (I am a kitchen collector, so the coat closet is a kitchen closet.)

I am loving this tidy space!

Simple Daily Challenge : Tidy your laundry area for 5 simple minutes!  You will be amazed what you can accomplish in five simple minutes.
