I may be asking because I have been trapped inside so much lately do to the cold weather, I mean we cant even get out to our backyard since our highs are like 18 degrees.... and I have been setting my new year goal to get organized...and I get one section cleaned and then the rest of the house gets messy... and I work on that part and before I know it I have a headache and want to give up... piles here and there are driving me nuts... --and even if it takes me all year to obtain my goal I will get organized...LMAO Do you ever get your house really clean?

I am like you, I need to get organized. I also have an issue, I have a 2 year old who is always exploring and getting into things. He makes it hard to keep a house clean. I can't say that my house is filthy, but it sure isn't spotless either.

NO. My room is never even REALLY clean. First I clean my closet then I fix the floor then I fix my bed and my stuff and before I know it, the stuff on my closet aren't so organized anymore! You get to fix a section a day and that's great! I can't even fix a single room LOL Thanks for the response on my discussion!

Oh bookreader I love your discusions. I always have something to say!!! I tried this last year as my new years resolution...I got the to do lists and a new calander and all kinds of other things to get more organized!!!It worked for a bit, I am more consistent with writting things down, but I am still a procrastinator...I don't know if that is an organization thing or not but it never fails...I have something that has to get done, it won't until I ABSOLUTELY have too.......it is horrible....and to make matters worse I love with a NEAT FREAK.....UGH but my house is never fully clean. I have 2 kids running around at all times and then I baby sit 3 more!!!!!so once i am done cleaning one room the other 6 are a mess....the only room that usually stays neat once it is clean is my bedroom....now that isn't always the case but sometimes it is. The kids rooms are never clean and neither i find is the kitchen!!!! Good luck I feel trapped as well with my cold weather...-17 right now and dropping, we are in a deep freeze as well.
