A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

    Thank you for including my post! I am a big fan of kitchen organizing! I love cooking and if the kitchen is not organized, it makes it less enjoyable. I will be sharing everyone’s posts on social media.

      You’re so right, Sabrina. I started shopping and cooking differently during COVID, and I had to re-organize my kitchen because not being able to just grab what I needed was taking away my pleasure. It makes such a difference to have the most important items easy to see and at your fingertips.

    Kitchens are one of the most enjoyable rooms to organize (from this organizer’s perspective.) It’s the hub of most households. So having items strategically placed, having enough of what you need, but not too much, and creating zones help keep that hub flowing beautifully. Many thanks for including me in this month’s round-up. I look forward to reading the collection.

      Linda, I’m still thrilled with the work we did together on my kitchen. Cooking is even more fun than ever!

    Lots of wisdom here for the busiest room in the house! It is also my favorite room to organize, and is to rewarding. Looking forward to stopping by these posts!

      It’s like you said… “heart of the home or family dumping ground?” 🙂

        Janet, I can’t figure out why this is repeatedly eating my comments and replacing it with just my name. (I’m going to try to list my first and last name as one name in hopes that will do something.) Previously:

        I will never understand why the site sometimes swallows my comments and just places my name in the text field. Ah, the mystery of the internet. This is what I originally wrote:

        Look at all this kitchen wisdom! So, who’s going to cook for me? 😉

          That’s so weird! I don’t think this is happening to anyone else. I think my blog must get excited when it sees your name.
