Day Thirty – 40 Bags in 40 Days Decluttering Challenge – The Guest Room Closet

Posted by:

It is day 30 of the 40 Bags in 40 Days Decluttering Challenge.  Today I get to share with you one of my own projects.

Help LEGOS Are Taking Over My House! – How to Organize LEGOS

Posted by:

Since my son turned 4 LEGOS have been slowly multiplying in my house.  Finding a way to organize LEGOS has been one of my greatest challenges as a parent and Professional Organizer.
