    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!

    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. :-)
