We have had lots of struggles and challenges in our lives, but we've had even more blessings!

Inquiring minds want to know!!!

    Where do you keep your vacuum?
      What about all of it's accessories? Things like the long hose, extra filters and belts, etc.?
    What about your broom and dust pan?
    Your mop?
    What about your supply of rags?
    Do you have a bucket? Where do you stash it so it's easy to get to?
    Where do you store your cleaning supplies?
       Are the ones for the bathroom stored in the bathroom? In every bathroom if you have more than one?
     Where would one find the suntan lotion and bug spray in your home?
     What about the wasp spray?

     Do you buy paper towels in single rolls, or do you buy them in the large bulk packages?  If you buy them in bulk, where do you keep the not yet being used rolls so that they are out of the way, yet you can get to them?
    Ditto about toilet paper.

    It's currently winter. Do you have side walk salt on hand? If so, do you have some by all of your outside accessible doors? In what?

    Where do you store extra light bulbs?

    What about matches?
    And, do you have a candle near them in case the naughty north wind takes out your power?

     Next weekend is Christmas. Where and how do you store your seasonal decorations once you take them back down?
     What about gift wrap? Seasonal and non-seasonal.

     Come on folks, inquiring minds want to know! Or at least this mind does. o;-) But I bet others do to. Otherwise Alicia Rockmore and Sarah Welch, from 'Get Buttoned Up', would not have co-authored the book, "PRETTY NEAT - the buttoned-up way to get organized and let go of perfection", [which we are currently in the eighth (8) chapter of skimming through. Chapter 8 is titled, 'CLEAR  THE  CLUTTER  AT  HOME'] because there wouldn't be anybody interested in reading it, let alone buying a copy. 
     But they did. And then they topped that by allowing us the opportunity to win $250 by submitting our organizational tips or shortcuts. The books authors will pick the tip or shortcut that they like the best, out of the ones readers submit. And you never know, while you might not think your methodology is all that impressive, you can't be sure that they  look at things the same way you do, and thus they might like something a LOT that you think is only 'okay'. ;-) So go for it! Submit your ideas! And don't worry, if you do not have a blog of your own, you can use "anonymous" to leave your comment under. HOWEVER, you MUST include your name in order to get credit for the organizational tip or shortcut ("methodology")!!!

    Looking forward to reading about where you keep yours! (you are going to tell us, r-i-g-h-t ..?  o;-p)

    Reminder: use the "link" in the side bar of our blog, to go back to the original posting which introduced this book and the connected drawings. Then, leave your "organization tip or short-cut" (methodology) under that posting. That way, it will be counted for our overall number and they will be sure and find it to consider it in drawing #2. :-)  Thanks!!! ;->
