But one of my this year's resolution is to be more organized and I've been doing pretty good. The thing is my mom used to do everything for me and my sisiter. We barely picked up and brought our own dishes to the kitchen sink after dinner. My mom used to clean out my handbags or shcool uniform's pockets. I'm not blaming her - I'm deeply grateful for all that she's done. I must say that I was spoiled girl who didn't know how to help my mother. And I'm embarrassed by it.
The funny thing is, my family and I were at my in-law's for dinner awhile back and I started clean up after my two daughters. "Honey, you tell the girls to pick up their toys, you don't need to do it.." my mother in law said. That's when it hit me. I'm turning into my mama!
I think it's important to teach my kids how to clean after their play time and I'm doing it now... I throw away stuff more. No more clutter and it feels so much better!
Here are some photos from Real Simple magazine - I realize now that ORGANIZATION is just divine...
Actually, I do fold my underwear just like this photo - my mom taught me that.
After seeing this photo, I did organize one of my drawer just like this and it works great!
