The L-DOOM (aka The Long, Drawn Out Organizing Method)

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

We’ve been living in our whole house (not the just the bedrooms) for a little over a month now. The remodel isn’t officially over (don’t get me started on that!), but we can cook in our kitchen, so it’s all good.

I’m in the middle of deciding on the heart of our home…the kitchen!

The Chaos

Deciding the kitchen layout.

Handling The Chaos

I’m currently negotiating the kitchen layout with our contractor. He says I spend too much time looking on Houzz and Pinterest. He should know better. I’m a Professional Organizer; I think about organizing and improving functionality ALL THE TIME! (more…)
