{Weekend Words + Household Tricks & Treats}

October 28, 2011

TGIF and welcome to the weekend {almost}!

In honor of this fabulous Friday, I wanted to share a little something with you that will hopefully brighten your day and give you a little more pep in your step. :)  I hung this quote over my desk, and it's just the reminder I need to live my life to the fullest...And remember, life's too short not to make every day a good day.

My hubby and I have a busy weekend ahead filled with charity events and Halloween parties, but I'll definitely be finding some time in our hectic schedule to tidy up our house.

Blogging has truly become a passion of mine, and my exciting journey through the blogosphere has led me to so many wonderful new friends who are full of helpful and insightful information.  Included in my list of daily reads are blogs specializing in and focusing on organization techniques and tips that help motivate and improve your lifestyle, and I have really fallen in love with numerous home organization bloggers.


First up on my list of faves is Jen from IHeart Organizing.  She never ceases to amaze me, and I can't wait to show you all of the successful projects I have completed thanks to her inspiration...My first accomplishment has been the completion of our Family Management Binder, which I will be unveiling in an upcoming post.  In the meantime, check out Jen's post on how to start your own.

Next up on my list of organization gurus is Becky from Organizing Made Fun.  Her daily tips truly inspire me, and I love all of her clear and concise explanations of easy techniques to improve your lifestyle.  For instance, who would have thought that it's totally possible to keep your house tidy with just 15 minutes of cleaning a day?  I sure didn't until I read this fabulous post, and it has definitely served as a helpful checklist to keep me on track.  Hope it helps you too! :)

I want to leave you with one more site that is filled with some amazingly helpful information, and I bet you will fall in love at first glance just like I did! ;)  I'm sure many of you may already be avid fans and followers of Real Simple, but if you aren't click here to check it out now.

Be sure to visit one of my fave finds from Real Simple...Hidden Tricks to get your house sparkling.  These are so fun {or maybe I'm just weird like that and get overly excited about cleaning tricks}!!

In honor of Halloween, I leave you with these "tricks and treats" {not the candy kind, more like the cleaning kind}, and I hope they bring some inspiration to your lives just as they did mine.

Enjoy, and happy organizing!!

xoxo,
Katherine
