Our home is our castle. It is where we can go to relax, refresh, and recharge our batteries. However, sometimes that is difficult to do when I am lying on my couch, and I see piles of paper, stacks of books, clothes that aren’t in their place, and toys on the ground. It is hard to relax when you see your house as “hoarders paradise”. Now, I know that it isn’t that bad, but it feels that way. When there is chaos at work, and chaos outside the house, your home is something you can control.
This is when I go to pinterest to get some ideas on how to best organize my house. There are some great ideas online, on small things you can do around your house to make your house “organization central”.

I am definitely going to start using this one. My parents came over the other day and were staying overnight. We needed to change the sheets on our bed so they could sleep in it, and couldn’t find a matching pair in the closet. This would have made life a lot easier. Another advantage when you do this is that you find which sheets and pillow cases don’t have partners!
