Well, I have made it into 8 weeks of taking control of chaos in my home and really keeping my life as organized as possible. Along the way, I have found some really great household items that are perfect for organizing my things and I wanted to share some with you. The best part of all of these things is that they are things you probably already have in your home or are so inexpensive to purchase.
My wife and twin girls have a lot of purses and handbags and they struggle with where to keep them. I opened up a pack of curtain rod hangers and hung them in their closets and instantly created multiple hanging options for all their stuff.

Week 5 is here and I am tackling the closets. My mission is to sort and organize the one closet that is most visible to all – the front foyer. This is an active closet as it is used by the whole family as well as our guests, so it needs to be clean, organized and functional.
I’m into week 3 of my resolution and I am feeling so good about controlling chaos in my life. There’s only one issue – the rest of my family isn’t completely aligned with my goals. My wife is unfortunately, a bit of a hoarder (you didn’t hear that from me), and my twin girls (aged 5) are not always the best at keeping order in the home or their rooms.
So, I’ve decided to focus this week on organizing my whole home and instilling some discipline into my wife and kids to do the same. So we started the week off with a purge – we went through every room of the home to gather things we don’t use, need or want anymore. We donated as many of those as possible. I then ran out and bought some very inexpensive cube organizer systems. These are great because they are inexpensive, come in a variety of finishes to compliment your room, and are fun too. I gave my kids an activity which was to create the labels for the front of their fabric boxes. They had fun doing it, and it made putting things away more personal for them and definitely more entertaining.

It’s week 2 of my New Year’s resolution of controlling chaos in my life and keeping things organized and so far so good. I invested in some of my favourite finds that I mentioned last week and have discovered some new things to keep me going. In fact, I am now investing time in making my own storage and organization solutions myself.
