An Organizing Poem Just for You

Here’s a little something I wrote to provide a little kick in the pants motivation as you near the end of the challenge :)  Don’t quit on me now!

The Big Push

by Org Junkie

From this junkie to you
Please don’t be blue
When I cut to the chase
And get into your face

Listen to my urging
It’s time to get purging
You have too much stuff
Way more than enough

It’s taking over your life
And causing too much strife
Remember you are the boss
Time to kick out the chaos

Think about a buying freeze
Please, please, please
No more, no more
Coming in the door

What’s holding you back
Don’t give me any flack
Stop your muttering
And get decluttering

I want you to see
What doesn’t have to be
It’s time to be aware
Of the clutter everywhere

You don’t have to have a fit
About getting rid of it
You only have so much space
To put everything in place

Don’t quit on me now
And don’t have a cow
All you have to fear
Is my kick in your rear

Peace and harmony
Is how it should be
Isn’t that the key
To a happy family

This challenge you’re on
Is just about gone
The end is almost near
You’d better get it in gear

Try to have some fun
While getting it all done
Happy organizing today
That’s all I have to say! :)

If that isn’t motivation enough (ha ha!) be sure to check out the awesome prizes up for grabs.  Two of these prizes include:

    Very nice!! =)

    And just when I was about to throw in the towel. I don’t think I’ll make it to organizing the room before the end of the month because my sickness is lingering. Being recovering after having my baby, I have not felt like this in years. Me, how made perfect attendance from middle school to college. We are still going to finish the project, but probably not by the month’s end. =p

    I’m still looking forward to seeing how everyone else did!! Bring on the transformations!

    I’ve been cleaning and organizing and painting, oh my, and now I’m working on my “after” post and need to know what kind of process questions you want answered for official entrants. I’ve gone through a process, let me tell you, and I want to make sure my post says what you need it to say, because my “before” and “after” are pretty dramatic and I want to win! Ha!
