    I clicked on the link for the cleaning checklists but couldnt find it. Do you have a different link for them? I really need some and I love the way they are layed out.

    Thanks for the motivation….we just got home from a week away at the parents and I have LOTS of unpacking and re-organizing to do! Kind of wishing for a blizzard to sweep in to keep us locked in the house so it will get done!

    Holy Cow this was a great post! So many motivating ideas. I love to purge and organize right after Christmas-there’s no better time!

    I am SO good at Organization Appreciation…and a little less good at Organization Implementation. These are all great ideas. One of my favorites is the chalk board on the inside of the pantry door. I can DO that!! I have a ton of old slate boards around here.

    Have a wonderful 2012 and keep giving us great ideas. We sure need them. :-)
