Hello there, my lovely friends.  It's that time of the year... time to get your organizing mojo going!

What's that?  You don't have any organizing mojo??

Well, you've come to the right place...  I don't have any organizing mojo either!  Let's be friends, mmmkay? 

Just kidding!  Well, kind of... 

I've resolved to become more organized and declutter my home in 2012. 

What?  This isn't an original idea, I'm not the only one.  Whatever. 

I'm not an organizing guru, but I played one on tv.  I am full of bad and cheesy hilarious jokes today, watch out! 

As I was saying, I am not an organizing guru but I have been researching organizing and decluttering like crazy to simplify my life.  As I've mentioned in an earlier post, my small business and blog are growing quickly but my first priority is to be a good stay home mom (and wife).  Since I'm busy being a mom/wife/business owner/blogger the first thing that usually goes is the house. 

Laundry starts piling up, so do the dishes, then the paper clutter (Oh, the paper clutter!  Ugh), toys, dust, cheerios on the floor, you name it... it all piles up. 

My current style of cleaning and organizing is flying by the seat of my pants and  "putting out fires".  While one thing is getting done, something else is piling up.  I'm hoping to organize and declutter and set up more routine cleaning habits instead of putting out fires all the time. 

I've decided to do a little blog series to share what I'm learning, the organizing and decluttering process, the successes and failures (and believe me, there will be failures) in attempting to simplify my life and spend more time doing what I love.  Spending quality time with my family and working on my interior decorating business and blogging. 

I do not come by organizing and decluttering naturally, like... at all.  So, I'm calling my series:

Because I am unorganized, I don't have a set schedule of what I'm going to be posting about on which day.  I'm just going to share a few things each week of projects and progress I'm making.  This no-schedule is kind of flying by the seat of my pants but I've gotta start somewhere, right?!

I do, however, have a list of things I'm going to be tackling:

1. Master Closet
2. Master Bath & Linen Closet
3. Papers
4. Toys
5. Kitchen
6. Cleaning and Laundry Schedules

This isn't everything, there will be some smaller scale projects, tips and hints thrown in there too.  I'll also be sharing some your great ideas and  some my go-to organizing websites. 

So, there you have it.  I hope you will joing me on my "Organizing and Uncluttering Journey", I'd love to hear your tips and tricks too.

So tell me, are you unorganized and cluttery by nature or is it just me?
