Welcome to I’m an Organizing Junkie!! My name is Laura (also known around here as Org Junkie!) and I am hooked on organizing because it saves my sanity on so many levels! I started this blog in 2006 and have regularly blogged about organizing since 🙂
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 23, boys 20 and 14), two who are away at college and one still home.
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!
I love to help overwhelmed moms learn to manage their clutter and chaos so they can experience the joy that comes with peaceful, organized homes.
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 🙂
