One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to take charge of the clutter and get organized. If I really wanted to scare you, I would take a picture of my closet, but I will spare you the gory details! In the past two years, I have had the opportunity to try several cleaning/organizational products here at Experimental Mommy, so I thought I would share some of my favorites.
1. If my daily schedule is hectic, I feel stressed. Stress leads to mess and clutter. So, the first step in getting organized for 2011 is a fresh planner. I absolutely love the MomAgenda Planner to accomplish this task.
2. With the Christmas season coming to an end, my house has been over run with new toys and games. My favorite organizational product for toys is the Guidecraft See, Store And Take Along storage unit. With six see through bins (with lids!) and extra shelving, I have taken back my living room!
3. With two girls, dress up is a popular activity in my home. The costumes, high heels and play jewelry has gotten too much for even the biggest castle! In my search for a solution, I came across this Dress Up Center which is perfect for my princesses!
4. Next up….wrapping paper! Every year, I fear that we won’t have enough wrapping paper for all the gifts so I tend to over buy. Now, my closet is full of scraps of paper, ribbon, gift bags, tags, tape and scissors and when I need it….I can’t find it….so I buy more. See the viscous cycle? To get organized, I plan to purchase the Rubbermaid Gift-Wrap Organizer with plenty of space to hold rolls of paper and gift bags.
