I have always been a pretty organized person. I kept a clean room growing up; and, as a young wife I focused on a neat and tidy home. Both my husband and I are actually a bit obsessive when it comes to neatness. Then we had our first baby.
Do you know how much “stuff” comes along with a baby?
It was everywhere and on every surface…we had to settle for organized chaos. A few years later, we had another child. In the midst of our “organized chaos”, we were still feeling stressed with all the toys, clothing, arts/crafts and general “stuff” laying around. I needed to be strategic about how we organized so that the mess wasn’t impacting our well-being.
