Having an Organically Clean Home

It's no secret that our family has made big steps into having a home that is, not only organized, but organically clean! We use NO chemicals when cleaning and doing laundry. I've eliminated ALL bleach and use everything natural and/or organic. So, when one of my dear blog friends, Becky of Clean Mama, began to write this book The Organically Clean Home - I was ECSTATIC!!

Why is Clutter Such a BIG Deal?

A few days ago, I shared a post I saw on Good Housekeeping's Facebook page and the caption read "See how we helped bring order to this clutter home" with a picture of a room with a little clutter.

5 Pantry Mistakes You Don't Want to Make!

I have a special blog friend who's going to show you a few things about organizing your pantry. Please welcome Nina of Everyday Enchanting and be sure to stop by her blog and tell her Becky from OMF sent you!

Hey there! I'm Nina from Everyday Enchanting, and I'm so excited to be sharing my "5 Pantry Organizing Mistakes" with you all today! I normally blog about DIY home improvement projects and party inspiration, with some cleaning and organizing posts sprinkled in. Now, full disclosure- I am not an instinctively organized person. I really have to work at it! When I need some inspiration, this is one of my favorite websites to visit. 

When we took on our pantry last year, I needed a lot of help! We went from this:

Spring Cleaning:: Lice and How to Deal With It!

This is not a pretty subject, but chances are that you and/or one of your children will either GET lice or will have been around someone who got it. Trust me, lice does not discriminate - and actually prefer clean hair, not dirty hair! We've had it in our household - about a year and a half ago. Our church/area here seems to have suddenly had an outbreak of lice among the children - which, of course, spreads to us Mommies - cause we love to snuggle our kiddos. This time, so far, we have escaped it. My best friend, Ardena, has graciously written up all kinds of information for you to learn how to rid lice in your hair and home. She and her family had quite the battle for a couple of months with this "super lice" and I asked her to write down what she did to finally rid their home of it.

Spring Cleaning :: Cleaning Make-up Brushes

Cleaning is not my favorite thing, but is a necessary evil! Ha! some of you LOVE to clean - just like I LOVE to organize. So, I have done my best to try and embrace something I'm not crazy about doing, but doing it in a way that is fun for me. I'm not hugely into "spring cleaning" - quite honestly, we live in Southern California where most of the year is spring-like and this year we pretty much skipped winter - but I try to clean things as needed year round.

How to be hospitable even when you don't think you can

Last week, during my blog break, we hosted a whole crew of men - most of whom we've never met before - in our home for four nights. Does that sound crazy? Well, not only was it NOT crazy, but it blessed the socks off this family.

Spring Cleaning:: All Natural Carpet Cleaning

I had a lovely time off last week. And even though I didn't blog at all, I DID have a list of many household organizing and cleaning projects. Unfortunately, I didn't get to all of them, but I made a sizeable dent.

Break time!

Where does the time go? How is it that I've been blogging almost four years? It's kind of crazy!

I've decided that, for the first time in YEARS...I'm taking a break. Not a long one. Just a week or two. I need time to refocus and just do some good organizing in my own home and focus on some things here. But, I want to get myself motivated, inspired, and just get ideas for my own organizing. I like to be creative and sometimes I run out of creativity. Do you ever feel that way?

Now, if you still need some inspiration, creativity, motivation, or whatnot, you can always follow me on Pinterest -- I have TONS of ideas there. 

Also, I'll be sharing my own personal clean up and organizing on Instagram {BeckyB_OMF} so you can follow me there and see what I'm up to! Thanks for understanding...I'll be back in a few weeks with some AWESOME ideas!!

Or, you can always check out my Organizing Ideas page - all the organizing I've ever done. There's a lot there! Pin, tweet, share on FB to your friends your favorites, too!
