Christmas Eve it happened.
I was sitting there, minding my own business, when I suddenly felt like I needed to organize my life.
3½ weeks to my due date and I’m going to get organized…makes me chuckle. It must just be that time of year! Or I’m nesting. 😉
I did manage to refrain from spending all Christmas Eve and Christmas Day immersed in school books and cleaning charts, but now I’m in the middle of it, telling myself not to overdo it! However, I must say, it does feel good to be productive! I know there is no way I can implement much of what I’m planning until after baby is here, but at least I have more of an outline and a place to start than I did a month ago.
I wanted to let you know about a few organization-related sales going on right now as well as some tools I use for getting organized. I’m sure there will be more with this being the ultimate organizational season! (In fact, there is one I am really excited about coming January 1, but I can’t say anything more than that. I’ll let you know more on that day!)

I’ll also be getting the car seat ready and packing a hospital bag this coming week. Not that I anticipate going early, but I do have quite a drive to my OB’s office and if for some reason I should need to stay in town, I want to be ready. I’ll share my list next week after I’ve thought through everything I need. In the meantime, feel free to share with me any essentials you take to the hospital!
