Welcome!

Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you find some helpful hints for organizing your time and space. My passions are to help you make home a refuge instead of a crisis center, and to help you function in peace rather than chaos - at home or at work. I have switched my main blog to 1-2-3 ... Get Organized on WordPress, so please visit me there.

This is a wonderful tip! My children are all grown now, so I will forward this on to them. We did the emergency contact person phone number idea, but I never thought about the emergency shelter idea. We also had a password. If someone came to them and said, your mom (dad) said you are supposed to come with me - even if they were a friend - our children were to ask them for the password so they knew the message really was from us.

Hello again, I just blog about your giveway. Hope to win. I have a house full of children (my own dd) and I run a daycare. So I probably could use some tips to get my dd's room organized. Maybe this will also help with the playroom too!

I found you on the blog trip...and I LOVE the content of your blog. I am an organizational junkie (as a mother of nine I almost *have* to be).

Adding you to my reader.

Hi, I have two sons and their rooms both need help! One son went away to college for a year and is back home going to a school near us. He wants a room change so it is more conducive for studying. Please enter me in your drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

I could certainly use some help taming the chaos in Carson's room. I hope you also have tips for keeping it that way -- sometimes I think my toddler is more like a mini-tornado!

Hopefully I'm getting this right! Not sure I'm all that normal, with my meds & whatnot right now. Thank you for the heads up, Beverly! I used to be so good at understanding and following directions. Seem to have lost that as I grew older. :) Have a glorious weekend!
