MegL inspired this post.
I got started with the internet in 2001. I don't know if that was late but it seemed like it was compared to others around me.
The first and the best thing I used the internet for was to find my husband.
Then I started searching for things to use in the classroom. Then I started searching for ideas on "How to be More Organized"
Being disorganized has been a life long affliction. I read books, I read advice online, I signed up for challenges.
I never got organized.
I'm still not organized and I still procrastinate and I still have too much stuff.
But thanks to FLYlady I got rid of a storage facility we had to rent when we first combined homes. I got rid of many clothes and other items. I learned not to buy something unless I already knew what was leaving the house.
So, there is a lot less stuff, housework is easier and I feel better.
The first day I came home from work and saw that it was a "27 fling boogie" and that the master bedroom was the zone for the week.
While I watched TV, I found 27 things to get rid of in my jewelry box! The next morning, it was easier than ever before to find the ear rings I wanted to wear to work.
That little aha moment in the morning had me hooked and I have been following FLYlady ever since.
