Getting Organized!

For the past few months I felt so unorganized around the house and very cluttered.  We received so many wonderful gifts from our family and friends for our wedding and showers, but now I'm having to go through everything and figure out what old stuff to get rid of and where to put the new.  Christian has been a very big help with this and I believe we have finally found a home for everything, but I still fill cluttered and unorganized. On top of trying to put this stuff away, I struggle every week with keeping my house clean or the way I like it. I'm always thinking I have so much to do around the house before I can relax. Well today I was reading South Family and I realized I'm not the only one who has this issue. Leslie from Lamberts Lately suggested using Fly Lady and I think I might have found a solution to my issues!  I signed up tonight and plan on starting the steps tomorrow and this weekend. Hopefully this will help me get everything in place and organized! Have any of you used this website? Did it help?
I'm so happy that tomorrow is Friday! I'm looking forward to the weekend.  Saturday we don't really have much planned, probably just hanging out around the house and enjoying the day with my husband.  Christian and I haven't ever gone to church together as a couple and I haven't been in a while. I mean we go once in a while with my sister to her church, but we don't really have a church of our own.  So Sunday is the start of finding a church for Christian and I.  I have few baptist churches picked out that I want to go to and see which one fits us best. I'm looking forward to that! After church, we are having a girls day.  My mom, sister, aunt, and myself are going to lunch and then to the Holiday Market at the coliseum. It is a huge craft show that comes every  year!

This is the best picture I could find but it is huge, it takes up both sides of our special events center.  Greensboro may lack a lot of stuff, but we do have a BIG coliseum! Hopefully I will find some cute stuff there this year for Christmas presents and maybe a little something for me too :)

I love FlyLady and the first thing that she will have you do is shine your sink. I was amazed when I followed her instructions step by step and it was actually so shiny!!! You really do need to follow each of her steps and then post a picture of her shiny sink. Maybe you should do a McLinky and have all of us post our shiny

Never heard of that site, but it sounds neat! You've got my curiosity going now, so I am going to have to check it out. I am always trying to clean things out... it always seems to amaze me how everything gets so cluttered in so little time! Ugh... housework!
