Nothing like relaxing with a good organizing magazine!!!

I absolutely love getting packages in the mail…..which is why ebay became a problem for me but that is a whole different post….lol. Well I couldn’t believe my eyes when I opened up my mail today to find this most awesome gift from my sweet friend Kim of Kim’s Candor (formerly PeanutButterandJellyintheVCR).

Some of you might recognize that this is the same magazine that I gave away in the 30 Day Organizational Challenge. That magazine sat on my desk for over a month and I, get this, DIDN’T read it! Can you believe it…it was to be a gift afterall and although I was tempted to so very many times to take a peek I didn’t, no I did not! But often I wondered about all the glorious organizing pictures inside and what I was missing out on…..and now I don’t have to wonder anymore because I have my very own and I’m so very excited…is that cool or what!

If you are lucky and if I can still make out the words after I wipe up all the drool I might even share a tip or two with you so definitely stay tuned for that!

Thanks Kim for the care package, you really are very sweet!


Now I hate to gush about my special package without letting you know how you can receive a special package of your very own. 5 minutes for mom is having a contest and the prize is a beautiful piece of jewellry from Ali’s Originals! Who wouldn’t be excited to receive something like that in the mail!!

Good luck and I hope you have a happy weekend!

    Wow! I’ve never seen that magazine before. I am continually trying to get organized.
    Have you seen It’s cool and has REALLY helped those of us who struggle with organization and discouragement.
    Just found the blogging world last night. I am in overwhelm! Beth Moore’s on line Bible study led me to her blog which praised BoMama’s blog. Found yours from her Christmas Tour of Homes.
    Can’t wait to read all your information on organizing!

    I’m sneakin’ in here to say thanks for the kind words, but I’m blushing so hard my face is all lit up.

    Seriously, I am so thrilled that you hadn’t read that magazine. My husband thinks I’m off my rocker when we’re at the grocery and I grab a book for “who?”–he wants to know. I think he’s afraid that I’ve made up an imaginary friend. :) Have a great weekend!

    Is this magazine a one-time deal, or is it a monthly magazine? I ask because I find that I have no good place to store magazines. As it is, I try to rip out pages that I want to keep/read again, and I try to throw the magazines away…unfortunately, that has left me with a BIG unorganized pile of papers (sigh)…which I’m thinking defeats the whole purpose.

    Hi Lynn,

    Go to this link and it might help you with your magazine article storage. I know it Works for Me!

    Magazine Article Storage

    I believe the magazine is a one time thing put out by Better Homes and Gardens.

    Hope that helps,

    Thank you so much for your suggestion! As soon as I pick Ten up from school, I will drive right over to a “Business supply store” and make a purchase. I expecially like your idea for what to do when the “designated spot” becomes full… and I’m glad you shared it with me, otherwise I would have purchased two containers so that when the first one got full, I would have been able to just fill up the second one, without having to run to the store again…(sigh).

    I just love receiving little care packages like that in the mail. Where so much thought went into and the friend really shows how well they know us. It looks like it was the perfect pick-me-up!! =)

    I have that magazine…and I still haven’t read it. How embarrassing. I’m grabbing it now and going to sit on the couch to read. :)

    Wow, you have serious will power, I think I would have peeked. Glad you got your own copy. Looks like something I need to check out. I have a den that needs some serious decluttering.

    I love those kind of magazines! I’ll be eagerly awaiting the tips you read about.

    I thought of you yesterday when I organized my drawers in my kitchen and purchased 3 mini-laundry baskets to sort the folded laundry for the kids to take up and put away on their own. Yay for me!

    Amyr, no unfortunately I don’t think it is still on newstands but you could check out the Better Homes and Gardens website.

    Christine, it is always great when we can come up with a solution that involves the kids…way to go!!

    It’s always nice to receive something else in the mail instead of bills.
