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.

Back-to-School Giveaway, August 4-18

To help you get organized for school, I'm sponsoring a Back-to-School Giveaway of 1-2-3 ... Get Organized books (over $45 in value):

Three Steps to Clever Cleaning
Three Steps to Decluttering
Three Steps to Organizing Your Child's Room
Three Steps to Organizing Your Kitchen
Three Steps to Planning Dinner (ebook)
Hassle Free Dinners (ebook)

Your choice:
  • Three Steps to Time Management for the Stay-at-Home Mom
  • Three Steps to Time Management for the Single Mom (ebook)
  • Three Steps to Time Management for the Working Mom (ebook)
So that's seven books, each one on a different topic. I wrote the 1-2-3 ... Get Organized series for the organizationally overwhelmed. Tackle one area at a time, and move on to the next!

The books are small, colorful, and glossy. Since they are spirals, you can open your book, lay it flat while you're following one tip, and come back to it for the next item.
Even though they're small, they're packed with helpful information to get the job done.

How to enter (11 possible entries in all):
  1. Email your list about the giveaway (include me - Bev@1-2-3GetOrganized.com). Come back and leave three comments to that effect. (3 entries)
  2. Blog about the 1-2-3 ... Get Organized Back-to-School giveaway, leaving a comment below including the link to your post. (1 entry)
  3. Put our 1-2-3 ... Get Organized Blog button on your blog or site, come back and leave a comment to that effect, with the link to that page. (1 entry)

I just subscribed, and I'm so happy I did because the Planning for Hassle-Free Dinners guide ALONE gives me hope that I can one day truly get it together! Single Mama gets just a bit overwhelmed at times. :-)

the books look like something I could really use - especially like the fact that they lay flat

Brianna said...

Organization is my biggest flaw, hands down! I can use any and ALL help I can get in that area. Might even help me make better progress with promoting my own book!

I have subscribed to your blog. I just read your recent post about the water bottles versus tap water and it freaked me out! LOL I don't think I will be wasting my money on water bottles anymore :)
