    If you like 'the organised housewife' on fb or just go to her website she has this great shelf and under it she has nailed to the wall some magazine holder/boxes. It looks like a good idea for bills etc. Also v you might find her a kindred spirit because her late mother was a hoarder too.

    Hi everyone

    I am glad that we have a few fans of organising here . More are always welcome. I love getting everyone's ideas on what they do to stay organised.

    Lovebeingamum, hello
    I am going to try the bicarb in the wash as soon as I finish my current bottle of laundry liquid. Will let you know how I go.

    Good job on the lounge and kitchen organising. I have started in my kitchen but haven't finished yet.

    I have seen some good ideas for using mementos in decor such as putting travel souvenirs in frames and hanging them on walls and I am planning on putting cards in scrapbooks or making a book for each event such as weddings, important birthdays etc. Pinterest has some great ideas for this. I will let you know if I find some other ways of displaying mementos. Your quilt sounds amazing. I have always wanted to make one. Great idea.

    I love the cereal box drawer divider idea too. So creative. I am going to implement that in my drawers.

    I will be back later to reply to everyone else .

    Lovebeingamum - I'm intrigued by the bicarb instead of washing powder idea. Does it work for all kinds of fabrics? Whites and colours? Any ideas how much to use per load in a top loader?

    My organising mission this week is DDs cupboards... She has so many clothes & toys to try and store, it's insane. I Have also got a plan for eliminating such an excessive amount in future which involves a stern talk to my mother (wish me luck).

    HOF; I love the idea of a complete group of items in a container. To just pick up and use. Same with storing things together; my linen cupboard has a section for swimmers, goggles, towels, floaties, all together. So the kids can sort themselves out. Usually though I get "Muuuum; I forgot my towel..." Sigh
    -re the changeable display; I had three pieces of sheet metal cut (bought from hardware) and I have fabric to cover it (or maybe spray paint it?) and am planning in hanging it up in my hallway; to replace my photo gallery of frames. The photos of the kids are so outdated and never get updated.
    -I love your chore charts!! Isn't it amazing how eager kids get when you add the incentive of money or toys haha

    Rose; I wonder if your laundry knows what's about to hit it lol

    OurBradyBunch; you sound very organised; and not even a little crazy haha!
    I also don't know how ppl get disorganised, but I do know that sometimes I just run out of time; in the mornings before leaving for school, at night when I just run out of puff and inclination, or when I think; play with the kids, the dishes can wait!
    Then I have a big tidy up day or morning an I'm all back on too of everything

    Monnie; my nana is a shocking hoarder, my mum is better and I am a little an@l because I don't want to be like them.
    -paperwork; I've found the best systems so far is a clipboard where all my "to pay bills" and "things to do" notes and I also write the due date on my wall calendar that I use day to day.

    SPG; I never knew that the Org H'w mum was a hoarder!! No wonder shes so organised.
    I know it was quite devastating to her when she passed away.

    Wifey; I'll do another post with the cereal box link invade you missed it; I think I found it amongst her office organization or something

    Isabella; I would start off with 3/4 or 1 cup in a top loader.
    I works with all and any fabrics. It's great for washing any microfibre cloths because you're not loading it up with detergents or anything.
    Like I said; it works so good on hubby's clothes and he is greasy and smelly lol
    And towels & linen are so great. Once you get over the loss of "pretty" smelling clothes after they're washed, you'll never go back. And it would be great for baby and kids clothes too.
    It's the only thing I use now.

    Oh. My. Goodness.

    I am loving the blogs people have linked! How did I not discover these before???

    I am another of those weirdos that organise things for fun.

    In fact, I'm off to rearrange my pantry right now!
