31 Days to Cut Through the Clutter of Life

Hi friends!

An amazing event takes place in the blogosphere every October.  Thousands of bloggers join together with 1 commitment- to post daily on one topic for the 31 days of October,   This year, my focus will be on the topic that is my tagline and the title of my latest ebook/Bible study- Cutting Through the Clutter of Life.

 

31days

We are going to delve into organizing your life- from your home to your time to your heart and everything in between.

You will see posts about menu planning, developing a morning routine and keeping your car organized (my biggest struggle).  We will also cover organizing the play room, baby items and kids rooms.  We will focus on command stations for your home, creating and sticking to a budget and how to be creative with storage.  We will dig into many topics that will ultimately help you to create organized spaces, organized systems and most importantly, clear the clutter from your soul.

I’m excited to be with you on this journey and welcome you to come back on October 1st for the first post of the series- Is getting organized worth your time and effort?

My answer might surprise you.
