Quotations to inspire mother's

I was looking through my mail and this article got my attention. Quotes to inspire frazzled mother's. Some made me smile and some made me laugh. Here are a few that i loved!!!

29. No one ever died from sleeping in an unmade bed. ~ Erma Bombeck

39. Mother – that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries. ~ T. DeWitt Talmage

49. You know you’re a mother when your child throws up and you run to catch it before it hits the rug. ~ Unknown

69. If you have children, the demands made upon you during the first hour of the morning can make the job of an air traffic controller seem like a walk in the park. ~ J. Wurtman

Here is the link to the article

Hope you enjoy it as much as i did. Remember we all have our bad days. Don't get discouraged and know that even though you don't see or feel it you are doing the best you can and every mother feels this way from time to time. We as women need to help others through these moments.

 I was doing my annual decluttering of the house this week. There were 3 areas that i found the most clutter. My cupboards, bedroom closets and bookcases. Here are my guidelines for decluttering these areas.

Kitchen cupboards:
- Go through all you kitchen cupboards, one at a time of course, and you will be amazed at what you find that can be thrown out or donate. When I cleaned mine out not too long ago, I  found spices that were expired. This will also help your organization which you can do as you declutter.

Bedroom Closets:
 -  If you haven't worn it in awhile or it doesn't fit get rid of it.    I am always amazed at the clothes I get rid of when I clean out my closets!

Bookcases - I have a tendency to keep books that i read and never read again.  Also, go through knickknacks, papers, magazines, or anything else filling up those bookcases. I also do this with movies and Cd's and get rid of the ones i no longer need.

My rule if I'm not going to read it, watch it, use it, or listen to it, it gets donated!! I give to different organizations near my home. I think it's awesome to help others in need! Another thing i do with my son's old clothes, books, and toys is have swaps with other moms in my area. This a big help and you can get items that you need also!

The rest of the house is a piece of cake once you have decluttered these areas. Once you have everything decluttered and organized, get everyone to keep everything in its place and your home will remain organized.
