LKN Woman Magazine {Feature Article}…

I love organizing, anything and everything.  I love talking about it.  But most of you know this.  What you might not know is that I can write as well!  {With help from a few wonderfullly trained editors} LKN Woman is a local magazine focused on … you guessed it, the Lake Norman area!  They have featured two of my organizing articles this year! 🙂  {I use the term “my” lightly — I had some editorial help} 🙂

Their July issue was all about beauty.  The organizing article was how to organize your makeup.  What girl doesn’t love makeup — and have a ton of it?!

My Organizing Weakness…

We all have a weakness in our organizing system.  Im not afraid to say that I strive for perfectly organized.  I am a slight perfectionist — or maybe saying I am meticulous is a better way to put it.  I get it honest — I get it from my Momma! 😉  {Hey Mom, ❤ you!}

But … with that said … I have 2 organizational weaknesses.

1) My home office

2) Beauty products.

It is so hard for me to find the right system in my home office.  Bullentin boards for inspiration — how do I keep up with project ideas — paper or electronic — do I need another table because my desk aint that big!  Another reason why I struggle here is investing money in “equipment”.  I will be moving in a few months and it is hard for me to investment in more office furniture when I know that the set up will be different soon.  Yet I want it all to magically work NOW! 🙂

And makeup and beauty products.  My oh my.  The #1 problem here is coupons.  Yes, coupons.  I can usually get these products pretty cheap because of blasted coupons and sales.  It is hard to pass up another bottle of shampoo when the total cost is $0.50.  I took inventory of my shampoos, conditioners, lotions, and body washes a few months back.  I was bad — I had 10 bottles of shampoo, and its only me!  I dont have 5 heads of hair to wash on a daily basis!  I had to stop.  But then there is the makeup.  You know, the kind that is old (like 2 years old) and in a really unflattering color (’80’s blue eyeshadow).  Yea those — well I have a hard time throwing these things away.  I dont like the makeup!  In fact, I only wear Mary Kay now! So it should go in the trash — but it doesnt. *Sigh* Somewhere deep inside I want to wear it until it is all gone.  Get my moneys worth!  All while looking silly in blue eyeshadow and teal eyeliner.  And in case you were wondering — no I am not the kind of gal that can pull that off!

Good Grief — what is your organizational weakness? 🙂

Until next time…
