Welcome to I’m an Organizing Junkie!! My name is Laura or you may prefer to call me the organizing freak. Either way I’ll answer to both and I’m so glad you stopped by.
I really am addicted to organizing and some kind of rehab may be in order. What I love most about organizing is the “high” I get from it so I am always looking for my next “fix”. Crumbs on the floor wouldn’t bother me but a pile of papers on the table would drive me crazy!!
I’m a Christian work at home wife and mom living in Alberta, Canada (I moved from BC in 2010). I have three kids (girl 16, boys 14 and 8) who give me plenty of organizing material to work with each and every day.
This blog is dedicated to my love of all things to do with organizing! Join me as I chronicle the life of an organizing junkie and attempt to get others “hooked” along with me. The more “junkies” out there the less freakish I seem! Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Keep in mind that this isn’t a blog about having a perfect home where everything is perfectly organized all the time. Life is constantly revolving and happening and we don’t live in bubbles where nobody moves. This blog provides you with practical tips and ideas to help you manage it all in real life. It’s not about living in magazine ready show homes, it’s about practical organizing solutions for the everyday to help you save time, money and your sanity. You don’t have to be born organized either (I wasn’t!), anyone can learn the necessary skills needed to create a clutter and chaos free home. Together we can do this, I’ll show you how!
Although if you ever get to the point where you are frolicking and playing with your baskets, we may have gone too far and basket rehab might be a tad bit necessary :)
If the freak part making sense now?
