Hi, I'm Sharon. I'm 51, married to my soulmate, grandmother of lovely 3 and 4 year old girls, and have been stay at home for a little over two years. My weight loss goal is to lose 43 lbs by March 2013. I am 12 lbs toward this goal since finding SP in May.

Thought when I left my job that I would finally have to time to organize my life and home: Lose weight, exercise daily, maintain a spotlessly clean home, refresh the decor with new paint, tend my flower gardens, spend time with grandchildren, cook scruptious meals, declutter and simplify our lives...

Well... it hasn't happened! Help!

I'm a 55 y/o Grandma who has always lived in a state of vagueness & chaos. Attempts to de-clutter always seemed to lead to bigger piles, late appointments, arriving late to everything including my own surgery..I can't blame it on de-cluttering...but the confusion & chaos is overwhelming. I hope to create a serene rhythm in my life . I can't lose weight until I get organized. emoticon

thanks for the welcome banner - my goals are to organize my home so that i feel comfortable and happy no matter which room i am in.
in the past - i always had a neat kitchen and bathroom for obvious reasons - but my bedroom, or spare rooms tend to be the 'catch all for now' spaces. my challenge is to put things away in a proper place if needed, to accept when something is no longer of use to me and put it out, and keep everything cleared of clutter.
big steps, big goals but also BIG REWARDS.
there is clearly a link to clear space, === clear mind ===== healthier person. BB

Hi, I work out of my home (piano teacher) and am an officer in three music organizations. I can do well with those jobs, so far, but the housework is always in last place! Separating housework from my other responsibilities can be challenging.

I need to work out a good routine this summer of getting things accomplished in a more efficient manner, as well as actually cleaning and decluttering my house!

Hello! I'm 26 and a brand new mom of a 3 week old. =) We moved into our first house while I was pregnant and hope to spend the rest of my maternity leave spoiling my baby (ahem) and trying to get organized and redevelop healthy habits. It's going to be difficult juggling my responsibilities as a wife, a mom, and a professional, but I'm looking forward to the challenge!

Can't wait to meeting you all!

My name is Monica! I am a 21 yr old college student who knows how to organize everyone's stuff but her own.. I am in a serious relationship with a man who loves organization and hates clutter... SO, the goals I have in mind are simply to DECLUTTER this summer and to organize my life and my funds better. I want to end next year with a 3.5 or above and I can't do that unless I organize my time better and find an organization system that works for me. This summer is a summer FULL of goals! I can't wait to get started on them :D

This must be my time to organize because I found this just this morning. Organizing has been a challenge for me and I married an organized minded man. He doesn't help me because he wants me to figure out a system for myself. I am 50y.o. and taking a change, making a change this month. My 2 kids are pre teens and I am teaching them to be more organized than I was at their age. My son is a natural, somewhat and so is my daughter. Thankfully we have or monthly messes to complete, but that's because I am still with my messes. I like the daily goals, and I will try to balance these goals and the other goals from my other teams.

Glad to be part of the team. Happy Sunday!!!

I Pledge to forgive myself for the past & keep going no matter how many times I fall. I have the strength and self discipline. I will give my challenges to the Lord. I WILL HAVE A FRESH START EVERY DAY!!

Hi. I used to be organized but started over a few years ago in a different place and living on a fixed income, disability , trying to glean things and deal with only one closet and one big cupboard in my small bedroom and bills and eating as prices go up and the produce is often bad already by the time its on the shelf at the local grocery store...... which adds costs of replacing it if I don't eat it fast enough or make absolutely sure its fresh enough to bother to buy it and then preserve it maybe by dehydrating because its easier to do that and saves me money, plus dried foods are very compact and I have a small kitchen.
I do alot of soups and one dish meals so this really is handy as well. One can dehydrate frozen veggies and such too very easily.

So, organizing an awkward and small kitchen, organizing too much stuff, much of it having to do with sewing, knitting, tools for crafts and general tools handy at all times, getting a better desk set up for writing and bills maintenance and simply comfort in time is very important.

Part of this is clutter clearing and it goes in stages as I get stronger and more flexible and can simply think better now that my brain fog is under better control.

Part of it is obtaining storage supplies and figuring out how to go 'up' in my small apartment. Its not exactly the home I thought I would have in my fifties and there is not much available here. I don't own a vehicle at this time so it is hard to just go get stuff like that at better stores in a bigger town/city.

Learning to adjust this place to suit my needs for the time being as it will take time to save for a used car and then a move to a better place, will all take time.

So, I am doing what I can and trying to be content with what I do have so far.

So, clutter clearing and a proper desk set up for every day stuff, computer needs and my writing are my general goals now that I have more energy and can think better again.

Hello all! My name is Jessica and I am new to the team. I am hoping to get a lot of great tips from this team. I have never been very organized, but I'm ready to get there! My boyfriend and I live in a 2 bedroom townhouse. We have lived here for 8 months, so we are still working on getting everything all figured out. If any body has general small spaces/maxamizing closet space tips I would love to hear them!

Hello all! I've joined this team a couple months ago but I haven't introduced myself. I'm Ananda from Brazil and, besides losing weight, I really need to become more organized and less of a procrastinator. I hope being more active on this team will help me achieve these goals. emoticon

Hello. My name is Theresa and I want to organize my life! I also plan to rejoin FlyLady, but I like the way you have ONE certain task for each day.

Right now, my apartment looks terrible! Boxes, baskets and Clutter are everywhere! My sink and kitchen counter are full of dirty dishes, and my floors are filthy. I need support, but most of all, I need help!

Is it wrong to ask friends for cleaning help? I fight with myself over this, but I think I would be better off with a helper for a few weeks. Once we cleaned the worst messes, I would be much more likely to continue on my own.

Hi everyone. The name's Amber. Well my story is pretty simple never been organized and always been overweight, I started losing weight and getting organized.. thennn I moved. My motivation & drive has disappeared and it doesn't help that I don't really have any support. Especially since I just moved and I don't really know anyone here. Granted my boyfriend tries his best but he loves McDonalds and he can eat whatever he wants and be scrawny. I'm not that lucky. I really would like to lose about 50 lbs & get my life together and organized. I'm hoping this group will help get me on the right track :].
[I'm new to posting on forums & etc so I hope I'm doing this correctly, if not, sorry]

Hello, all! Like FLYBABY54, my name is Cecilia, though I usually go by Celia. I am also a Flybaby, albeit a struggling one, in that I now have piles of stuff I've cleaned out but haven't blessed someone else with yet. I did do some SP housecleaning today by winnowing out teams that no longer hold my interest and by joining this one to help keep me motivated.

Goals:
- Weight:
-- Reach goal weight and start maintenance by May 31 (I'm 2 pounds away and have adjusted my calorie range to "slide" into maintenance)
-- Maintain goal weight within +/- 2.5 pounds
- Decluttering
-- Joined the team goal for decluttering 15 minutes a day, although I've long had that as a personal goal
-- Engage in this team's threads to pick up tips and report successes and bumps in the road

Hi Im new to spark and new to this room. My goal is to lose about 70lbs and organize my life both mentally and physically. I know that in my case losing the weight is half the battle. My other struggle is organization. My home has become so cluttered with "stuff" just stuff. Its not dirty just disorganized. Im hoping to find tips and tricks to help me with the organization of my home while Im trying to lose the weight. Ive got the exercise and calorie thing working but my surroundings are a battle. I have myself, my fiance, and a stepson whos 11. They all just throw stuff everywhere and Im guilty of that too sometimes myself. The messes make me feel depressed and overwhelmed. When Im feeling that way, the battle to lose the weight kind of takes a back seat..does that make sense? Thats why I was so happy when I found this room Im hoping you guys can help me get some organization in my life.

All the things that we accept become the things that we regret.

Hi all. Finally posting. Have to say the team pic (color sorted clothes) pulled me in. That made me smile and is my closet when things are in harmony in my life. Believe that my surroundings are a reflection of what is going on inside and out. Finally getting a handle on the diet and exercise, so it’s time to conquer this. Have a bit of OCD so I function better with less clutter around. There are some areas that need work and I am ready to get started. Look forward to getting to know all of you.

BTW…thanks for the welcome banner.

I just joined the team. I am not the most organized person and I need a little extra motivation to do some extra cleaning/organizing around the apartment. Last night I realized just how cluttered the living area had become. It's not that it is dirty, there are just thing accumulating in the corner. I want to nip that before other people notice. I have been quite busy recently, and that is something that got put on the back burner. It is so much more fun to plan a wedding and grading seems so much more important. But I'm committed to spending time to organize.

I was browsing around sparkpeople this morning, saw this team and thought- this is the motivation I need. Here's to a great start with organized life.

My overall goal is to reduce clutter, but know I need to be more focused. I think I'll browse around this team for ideas on where to start.

Hello all,
I am a stay at home mom of three wonderful kids. I used to think I was an organized person, but I think lately with being so busy with my soon to be 1 year old....my house...and myself....have been neglected. So, not only do I have goals to lose weight, but to get my life as organized as I can (with 3 kids LOL!).

I have been on here for 2 years on and off, mostly off. I have recently made a commitment to myself to get fit for 50. Yes I will hit the big five OH in 2 years. I have never really thought of this site as anything more than a weight loss aid. Then I found lot's of different Sparkteams and was very excited so I joined a bunch of them. This one is by far the one I need the most so I am so happy that I found it. I am the worst organizer ever. I buy lots of organizing tools, then don't end up using them the way I had orginally intended. Anyway, I just moved into a new place with a garage and back yard, something I haven't had i about 5 years. So I am ready to get rid of STUFF. My garage, in one week, filled up with stuff from the inside of my house and now my car doesn't fit. Makes me wonder where all the stuff was in my old place that I didn't have a garage, LOL. My goal for this month is to fit my car back into my garage!

My name is Trini, I have 5 children, 2 who still live at home, 5 grandchildren and I love to craft (reason partly why I have so much stuff) I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I love making things. I love to crochet. I am happy to say that I have already met someone on this site for a walking partner in the evenings. So I will be doing that also now. I am a very busy person, I am involved in my son's football league. I run the snack bar 4 to 5 times a year starting in July to November. I love being busy and usually that is my excuse to not get things taken care of. That's me!!!

A year from now you will wish you had started today!

Hi! I have several friends on this SparkTeam and decided I should probably join!

For the first time in my life, I've dedicated myself to the task of spring cleaning! I think this group will help me do not just the scrubby stuff, but also the sorty stuff. So my goals are:

1. declutter
2. clean my house properly so it's easier to keep up
3. turn my yard into something nice

I'm excited to take part in this team!

I'm 4'10.5". A normal BMI for my height tops out at 121.

Hi everyone,

I am new here.

I had minor surgery on my foot last November, and it kept off my feet and out of the loop for quite a while. The house was left to my sons to manage while I couldn't move, and while I was away. I came home, finally, about two and a half weeks ago, and nearly died. It wasn't just untidy, it was dirty... EEEK.

And my office, it has become a dumping ground off papers and work stuff everywhere. People have been moving across the country, and my office has become the collection spot for their remains.

So my goals are:

1) Simplify the living environments.
2) Sort through my stuff in my room. I am sure there are things pre-divorce that need to be tossed, donated, or stored for grown-up kids and weddings.
3) Simplify the office space.
4) Simplify my workflow
5) Simplify my storage
6) Organise the gardens, and plant autumn crop if possible
7) Pay down my debt
8) Increase my savings
9) Increase my overall health, including the loss of 67lbs
10) Create a life that has space enough to take advantage of opportunities.

We have done a fair bit in the last fortnight, but I know there is a way to go. I am cutting and pasting this post so I can include it on my blog, so I can hold myself responsible.

I really look forward to working with you all,

Danuta

Smile! Today is the tomorrow you hoped for yesterday! :D

Hi everyone! My name is Sarah, and while I consider myself to be a very organized person, I had the luck of marrying someone who is very much the opposite, so my goal is to help him learn some great techniques to help him keep a more organized office. He has seen how keeping things neat has helped me with stress levels and he asked me to help him as he is constantly unable to find things. It's an ongoing process and I look forward to learning all sorts of new ideas that might apply to our lives!

Hello everyone!!! I soo need this group. I was once the most organized person, now things are so out of control that. So I would like support with getting things organized. I am actually sitting here with mail on my living room floor trying to get organized. The last straw was today I got pulled over by the cop b/c I was missing my admisstion testing...geezzz when did it get out of control. I have finally got my eating and workouts under control. Now just the rest of my life... lol.. In my defense I have a heck of a lot going on..... So I am looking forward to the challenges and the support from this team!!!!

My goals over the past few years have been just to keep the daily things done because of multiple surgeries & injuries that postponed exercises & projects...but here I go again..My goals are to finish cleaning the garden...that was curtailed due to bee stings and visit to emergency last fall in late October..who knew one could be stung that late in the season! Next the basement, organizing and cleaning the basement and the major goal is a bathroom renovation as soon as possible all of these have to work around our medical appointments.

Hi there, l'm glad to be part of this team. I live in Scotland, l'm 45 years old, married with 2 kids.
My short term goal is to declutter and give what we don't need to the charity shop. I'd like to complete this for the main rooms of the house by end of June before the schools break up, so l can then enjoy the summer holidays with the kids. I'm setting myself mini targets to achieve this.

Longer term l want our whole family to be more disiplined about staying organised, not easy when my husband has been a hoarder all his life, at least he loads up the car and drives me to the charity shop and recycling centre, l've just got to stop him looking in the bags and boxes to see what we are getting rid of, as he always wants to keep things!

GIVE YOURSELF THE CHANCE YOU DESERVE.

I second what Debjae said! Papers are my biggest problem, especially the mail. I would be grateful for any suggestions!

Hello!

I have the hardest time with my mail...I end up sitting it to the side and before I know it my kitchen counter and part of my table is covered in an assortment of mail. How does everyone sort/clean out mail? I pull out catalogs to recycle...what do you do with bills? How long do you keep statements? Shredder?

Everything we do in life is a choice...I can't blame others for my thoughts or actions.

Faith is taking the first step-even when you don't see the whole staircase.

Hi everyone, so glad I found this group. I'm working diligently on getting my physical and emotional and spiritual fitness in order. A lot of that has centers on creating clean, disciplined, consistent habits, whether of eating, exercising, praying ... Now I want to apply these same principles to my physical environments. I work in an office and I need to clear the clutter, both to create space/find things, and also to create an environment where I can be focused and clear-headed. Part of the issue is making it a priority, because on a day to day basis it seems always to get pushed off "until tomorrow" - which rarely ever arrives!

About myself - I teach history, I run, and I'm really getting into healthy eating.

I look forward to learning from you all.

Hi, I am moving soon and want to be an organized mover so that packing and unpacking can go as smoothly as possible. I also wanna my new place to be less cluttered than my current home, especially since we will have more space! My biggest problems are papers and projects I am in the middle of (I tend to leave them out).

Hello,

Apart from working on my eating habits and wanting to lose weight. I also need to work on my organizational skills. I have a planner that I've never written in. I always tell myself that I need to do a TD List and stick to it, but I never get around to it.

I guess I just need help.

Hi my name is Boni and I am trying to get rid of many things that clutter my life.

Stuff I have accumulated over the past 62 years and just keeps piling up. The house and every closet is wall to wall furniture and stuff!

Weight I have been in battle with for my entire life and lost and gained so many pounds during my life I could be 3 people or more.

I am now at weight of 248 pounds and last year this time I was at 270. So I have lost some but started weight watchers 3 weeks ago and have lost total of 7 pounds as of past Sunday so I don't want to ever reclaim that clutter.

Hope to get some real great ideas for giving up the clutter...I have been working on it since January!

If the Lord brings you to it He will take you through it....

Hello All,

My name is Cory. I'm trying to get organized before moving into a place of my own (I've always been a teensy bit on the messy side, not hoarder bad or anything). I'm in school full time and I work full time, and I'm starting my own business. Aside from that I'm working on losing weight that's accumulated over the years of studying and being in a relationship and breaking up, then getting back together (same relationship), plus a way over-full schedule.

Other than that I like comic books, video games, sharpies, and NPR, ^_^

I look forward to getting to know you
