Kitchen/Paper Organization with GiGi from Vision Organizing

I’m almost too embarrassed to post the before pictures of my house, but I’m sure someone out there is worse off than us! So, first a disclaimer:

I am a homemaker, not a housekeeper. No – they are not synonymous with one another. I am a great mom and wife; I spend quality time with my family. That time does not include a ton of cleaning. Granted, I do laundry and dishes daily; I clean the refridgerator about once a week. Behind closed doors – cabinets, closets, and wardrobes – lies neatness (believe it or not). However, there is an overwhelming amount of (dare I say) crap out in the open. Stuff that gets just tossed somewhere into the abyss and never put in a proper place.

That said, here goes nothing:

GiGi Miller (owner of Vision Organizing) and I started with what seems to be the most overwhelming in our house – papers. Believe it or not, I still had Kindergarten papers from my [now] 3rd grader. I never knew what to do with it all. I used to work. I never had to deal with all this sort of stuff. Now, I do. And, thanks to GiGi, I now know how to deal with all of it!

How did we do it? GiGi’s genius bins. We separated everything into piles and it works beautifully! I wish I had photographed the recycle pile – it was HUGE!

In just about 2 hours we accomplished ALL this! It has been a blessing for our family and I can’t wait to continue. I will be keeping you all posted on the progress (unsightly as it may be). But, in the meantime, if you want a little help, stay tuned. You won’t want to miss the giveaway coming up!

  1. Would it make you feel better if I posted pictures of my messes? Because yours don’t look that bad to me at all! That said, I am envious of your organizing project. Too bad the kiddies don’t think organizing is as fun as I do– so I just never get around to it.

  2. [...] there’s a room in your house looks anything like my kitchen used to, then you are definitely going to want to enter this [...]
