Week 30: CD and DVD Storage and Organization

This week we’re tackling CD and DVD storage and organization as part of the 52 Week Home Organization Challenge.

This challenge will most likely either be very easy and quick for you, or something that will take you a fair amount of time over the course of the week to get done.

The reason for this is that I’ve found people are either huge collectors of music and/or movies, or they don’t own many discs at all. There doesn’t seem to be much in between.

In addition, this is not a challenge you can do on your own for your whole family. Instead, all family members need to be involved, at least in the decluttering stage, since no one wants their music or movies thrown out without their say so (no matter how much you may personally not like them!)

Preparing Kids For School

If you’re like most of my friends, your kids are going back to school soon. If you’re like me however, you’ve still got over a month to find things for them to do. I get a little worried with these super long summer breaks that we have, so I start preparing my kids for school around a month before it starts back. How do you start preparing kids for school? I’ll share my ideas with you today, and I hope you’ll share yours with me.

Week 29: Organizing Books

This week, in the Organizing Books Challenge, we’ll declutter and organize this type of reading material in our homes, using the step by step instructions below.

We’ve already tackled some other types of reading material in ourhomes in previous challenges, such as cookbooks in Week #5, and magazines and newspapers in Week #15.

But books pose a special challenge for many people, myself included I will confess.

I am a bibliophile if there ever was one, and to top it off I married a man who loves books perhaps even more than I do. That means we have lots of books in our house.

Whether you’ve got a few or a lot of books though, you’ve got to keep them organized so you’re able to find what you’re looking for to read it when you want to, or these items aren’t serving a useful purpose in your home, just taking up much needed space.

I Kissed A Girl

So… If you’ve been with me for a while now, you know that me and the hubby have been together for 5 years, but you may also remember that time that we weren’t together. That crazy 10 months where I did a lot of crazy things. That crazy 10 months where I made friends with a chick whose husband ran a bar. And from there, it went really crazy… During those 10 months, I did things that I never would have normally done, but I also had a lot of fun. During those 10 months, one crazy thing in particular sticks out in my mind… I kissed a girl.
