Organized Chaos: 101
Hello! And welcome to Organized Chaos for ToolBox Divas, an area focused on inspiring you to transform your life into what you’ve always dreamt it could be. I want to help you to get more organized! I am so excited to share my life as a busy mom, wife, personal assistant and entrepreneur. My passion for impeccable appointed spaces, fashion, along with my entrepreneurial endeavors have paved the way for an all encompassing lifestyle in the professional organizing industry.
I have wanted to start a blog for a long time… So when, Timisha, of ToolBox Divas asked if I’d be interested in sharing my organizational skills with ToolBox Divas, I decided the time was now. No more waiting for the ‘right’ time – whenever that is. So here we go… I’m diving in, like one of my favorite characters (Mary Katherine Gallagher) from a childhood movie – Superstar!
My motto is, “Organization is not a destination, it’s a Lifestyle. ”
My goal is to teach and instill organizational skills that are sustainable. Getting into the habit of putting things back in there proper place, for example, is just the tip of the iceberg.
Our lives are pretty busy – right? So it can be difficult to stay ahead of the clutter, while trying to stay on-top of all the responsibilities of running a household, remaining competitive in our careers, staying fashionable, juggling relationships and trying to get in a little downtime for some ‘fun’. You have t o have a plan, a strategy if you will.
Although I have always been very neat by nature, I have created systems for how I manage it all. My hope with Organized Chaos is that it will encourage others to become a little more organized. Getting to a place of organization sounds like a daunting task – but I am here to help!
Smile! This is going to be fun.
Here are a few rules to start you off.
Take Inventory and Make Decisions:
Rule #One: Take it one room at a time.
Rule #Two: Take inventory of the items you own.
Rule #Three: Discard items that no longer benefit your life.
Rule #Four: Now begin the organizational process.
Get into the habit of completing these organizational basics. Doing so will prevent major projects in the long run.
It’s perfectly understandable to feel overwhelmed. It’s only natural. Clutter causes stress. It’s a proven fact. But take my advice, you will get through the anxiety. I will be there with you. It not humanly possible for one person to organize an entire house in a day. It took you longer than a day to create the clutter, therefore it’s going to take time to un-do it.
Okay?! Now take a deep breath or a few and keep reading.
Decide on what area in your home you want to start with.
Whether it’s your kitchen pantry or wardrobe, start by taking inventory of what you have.
Only you can decide on what stays and what goes. Be smart about. Challenge yourself.
Now let’s begin the journey of organizing the chaos of life.

Thanks for sharing! I am looking forward to checking out your new blog…and congrats on getting started! Organization is not one of my strengths, but I love the feeling of decluttering. Thanks for the motivation! 🙂
Karla! Thanks for commenting! My hope is to inspire those less-organized to start making small changes to get better organized! Clutter purging is a favorite of mine as well.
Its so “freeing”.
