Not So Organised Chaos

My Organized ChaosThat would be a fair description of life in the Oh Waily household on many a day.  So what better than getting some excellent pointers, and reminders, of what family life can look like.

That’s what Jo from A Bit Of This and A Bit Of That is offering to do for you.  You may recognise Jo from the Neighbourhood Walk series.  (Another of her brilliant ideas.)
I’ve been a follower of her blog for a long time now, having come to it through my interest in things Montessori.  So when the opportunity to tap into her vast store of ideas came along, I took it with both hands.

She has created an online e-course to help you sort your kids, and your home, out.  I’ve been doing it now for a few weeks, and it has been great.  I needed the prod and the guidance to actively put into practice concepts and ideas that I know will enhance our family life.  I’m loving the community support and help with generating ideas that will work in our home.  Best of all, everyone is a normal person so any before and after shots of changes are realistic, not a Better Homes and Garden feature that you know you’ll never maintain.

If you think you could do with some help getting things sorted, I’d highly recommend clicking across and taking a look at what Jo can offer you.  I’m sure you will get as much out of it as I have and I haven’t even finished up everything yet.

I will be putting together a short series of posts on some of the changes we’ve made around our home as a result of doing My Organized Chaos.  It won’t be everything we’ve done, naturally.  Can’t give away all of Jo’s secrets, after all.  But it may help you decide if you want to join a course.  I hope you do.


Just a note, I’ve chosen to join Jo’s affiliate scheme.  If you click through on the links in this post, or my sidebar, and sign up for a course I will earn a fee.  However, I’d like to be clear that I wouldn’t be recommending it if I didn’t think it was good value.  After all, I wouldn’t want you to be mad with me for getting you to spend your money needlessly.  🙂

    1. It has been really good. I’ve been working away at things today and the kids’ drawers are all labelled up now; some of the ridiculously strewn-about-the-place craft supplies are now housed in one large red, labelled and attractive box. But I still haven’t tackled the big art/craft/rubbish (frankly) boxes in Master OWW’s closet. 🙁
      I need a good night’s sleep, intravenous coffee and a nanny for the day before I’ll feel fit to tackle that lot. =8-O
