Whole House Organization in 52 Weeks – An Update!

Whole House Organization in 52 Weeks – An Update!

“Hey”. You might be hollerin’ from way over there… “Are we still doing this whole house organization in 52 weeks? Because it’s been a long over due time now and there has been no kind of update whatsoever here on Informed Sharing about that whole thing.” Hmmm. The short answer is YES. We are still doing the whole house organization in 52 weeks – this is an update. The slightly longer answer continues below… Whole House Organization in 52 Weeks – An Update! If you remember, we started … Read more…


Weeks 9-11: Whole House Organization: Addresses/Contacts, Mail, and Paying Bills

Weeks 9-11: Whole House Organization: Addresses/Contacts, Mail, and Paying Bills

I decided to combine these three weeks – Addresses/Contacts, Mail, and Paying Bills – of whole house organization because they sort of go together and I already have some pretty good routines set up for most of each. Mostly. I said. When I first read over the Addresses/Contacts post from Taylor at Home Storage Solutions 101, I was a little nervous because this one is messy. I am that person who has to call my aunt (raised up family) or my mom (the bio one 🙂 ) when … Read more…


Week 8: Whole House Organization: Meal Planning

We are so close to being out of the kitchen that I can almost taste it. Which is good this week, as we are back to talking about food with our week 8: whole house organization: meal planning. I am really in love with this week for several reasons, but perhaps the most key piece about it is the actual organization aspect. As I’ve talked about in recent weeks, our food situation is pretty tight in that we don’t have a lot of room for food storage. Planning … Read more…


Week 6: Whole House Organization: Trash and Recycling

I have been dreading this week. Trash and recycling. I absolutely cannot stand – intensely dislike – our trash/recycling situation where we currently live. Though Taylor from Home Storage Solutions 101 offers up a plethora of tips relating to this week’s organization challenge…ugh. And when I say intensely dislike, I rather mean “hate”. But since I was a little girl, ‘we don’t use that word’. Which is fine. It’s an ugly word and I shouldn’t be this vengeful on the trash and recycling situation OR my lack of (whatever) … Read more…


Week 4: Whole House Organization: Fridge and Freezer

Week 4: Whole House Organization: Fridge and Freezer

I actually had to work a little harder this week for this piece of the 52 week whole house organization challenge: fridge and freezer. Because G had done so much re-organizing throughout the rest of the kitchen just after Christmas, the first part of this entire challenge had been a bit of a cake walk. You may visit those first 3 weeks here: Week One: Kitchen Counters and Sink Week Two: Cupboards and Drawers Week Three: Pantry and Spices Still, part of organizing means keeping things that way; … Read more…


Week 3: Whole House Organization: Kitchen Pantry and Spices

Week 3: Whole House Organization: Kitchen Pantry and Spices

Here we are in week 3 of our whole house organization and it is time to work on the kitchen pantry and spices. Thankfully once again, we already had that covered after G went through and redid the kitchen after Christmas. Truth be told, however, we’ve never had a lot of pantry space where we live and that keeps us relatively honest and neat/clean/organized about what goes where. In reviewing Taylor’s suggestions for organizing one’s kitchen pantry and spices, I discovered that we are following along her general … Read more…


Week 2 – Whole House Organization Challenge – Kitchen Cabinets and Drawers

Week 2 – Whole House Organization Challenge – Kitchen Cabinets and Drawers

I know. It kind of feels like I’m getting off a teeny tiny bit easy in this first few weeks of the whole house organization challenge. This week it’s kitchen cabinets and drawers and last week it was counter tops and sink… …and frankly, this was all done the weekend after Christmas by my Awesome Sauce husband, who spends an incredible amount of time in the kitchen – more so than me, though you wouldn’t know it to look at us. BUT. It is to our credit as … Read more…


Meet Hometalk – The Know it All In One Spot

Meet Hometalk – The Know it All In One Spot

I spend an incredible amount of time on Facebook; not for the usual reasons (whatever those are). Because of my writing, promoting (myself and others), and various other job related activities, Facebook plays a big role in how I run my business. Which also means I’m there for the fun stuff too. Meet Hometalk – the know it all in one spot. I don’t know when it started but long about whenever ago, I started seeing posts in my feed for a place called Hometalk.com.
