Are you “The Finder of the Things” in your house?
That’s me for sure…”Queen of All.” And if you’re a mom, I bet that’s you, too.
Something can literally be out in the open and my family can’t see it.
But you and I, mom, we’ve got the superpower.
Perhaps until it comes to our storage, that is. It is usually our kryptonite.
It devours the super speed at which we can normally find things and our power goes out the window.
At least that was the case for me…Until a few years ago.
We were prepping to move (ugh…I HATE to move!), and I was determined not to shove everything into the boxes that I would then have to fight through at the new house in order to find the things that I wanted to unpack first.
So I developed this amazing little system, and let me tell you…it worked like gangbusters!
I had every box labeled (Living Room 1, 2, 3…Bedroom 1, 2, 3…etc.)
Then (Listen up! This is the magical part!), I used a binder with a handy little printable to keep track of everything that was in each box.
It only added a minute to packing each box, but it saved me days when we got to the new house!
See, when we got everything unloaded, everything labeled “Living Room” got placed in the living room. Then, when I was ready to unpack and put that room together, I knew exactly what was in each box.
Say I wanted to unpack the box with the living room remote. All I had to do was look at my handy-dandy binder to see which box contained it.
In the words of my sweet 5-year-old, “Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!”
I mean, seriously, easy! I had my house unpacked and set up in one day!
After seeing my beautiful system work so wonderfully in action while moving, I decided that it was too good to only pull out in that specific situation.
So…I tweaked it a bit and made it work for our storage.
Since that day it has saved me a BOATLOAD of time!!! Never again have I had to question where something is.
And want to know something else??? IT HAS BEEN SO SIMPLE THAT MY FAMILY HAS BEEN ABLE TO USE IT!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Consider a world where you never again have to spend your precious time searching for your kid’s “favorite” toy, or your Christmas decorations, or your husband’s baseball card collection…Pure bliss…am I right?!
Yep, looking for something for 45 minutes will be thing of the past!! (It NEVER fails…it is ALWAYS in the LAST PLACE YOU LOOK!)
And since we know time is our most precious non-renewable resource, having a system that helps save us time is pretty fabulous.
Are you drooling yet???
Well, don’t worry, Momma! I’ve got your back.
Today I am giving you not only the gift of time but also the gift of organization. And that’s pretty great.
Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
