Introducing new Blogger on “Everything Organized” by Lorraine Brock
When Minette Riordan, asked me to write a monthly blog for the North Texas Kids site, I jumped at the asking. It was the perfect fit for what I am already doing and for the readers of the North Texas Kids Magazine.
So, welcome to my blog, called “Everything Organized”. I am so excited to start chatting with you about my experience and wisdom I’ve gained as a Professional Organizer, mom and wife of 23 years. “Everything Organized” is from a moms perspective about being organized in everything we do; it will be written for moms by a mom. It’s about you, your life, and your experiences and how you can do things, faster, more efficiently, and with greater results than you are having now.
Too often we struggle just keeping up with all the privileges of being a mom: the late night sleepovers in your child’s room, the perks of doing laundry 24/7, and the varied parenting strategies that are needed for each child. However, I assure you that being an organized mom will help you to complete tasks faster, easier and cheaper, both at home and away.
Did you know that the average person spends 55 minutes a day, roughly 12 weeks a year, looking for things they know they own but can’t find? That’s a lot of wasted time, money and energy.
I’ll use personal stories of how I keep order in my home in the mist of chaos. Along with those stories, I’ll share tried and true tips, ideas and systems that you can implement in your own home such as: organizing school lunches, getting out the door in the morning, and date nights with your kids. These tips will be about anything and everything that goes on in your home or mine. I’ll cover relationship issues, kids’ chores, allowance systems, time management strategies, buying groceries, and eliminating paper clutter. There is no limit to what we can organize, as I use a common sense approach to help moms learn to get organized and manage their home and family.
Whether you’re a mom who works outside or inside the home, moms tend to have the bulk of the responsibility of running and managing the home. Finding ways to make your life easier is my job. Changing some of your old habits and tendencies, that’s your job.
Once a month, I’ll tell the story, find the tools you need and show you the systems. You are on a journey to become a better you, with “Everything Organized”.
