I AM! Everything must be put away and organized or I start stressing out. I was never like this before. We REALLY organized about twice a year to maintain things but now I obsess over it.

That is exactly what I spent all day yesterday doing. I am finally getting our office cleaned out. DH agreed to get a storage unit to keep a lot of this junk that we "must keep because one day we may need it". I am super excited about getting it out of our house and having more space!

I'm always somewhat obsessive when it comes to organization, but I am definitely seeing an increase in importance to me. The problem is I just don't have the energy to get it done.

Yes...our house is just too small for all of our stuff, so most of it is all over the place. And DH and I are both hoarders, so we never throw stuff away! Last week I tackled the kids' closets (both of which still have some of our stuff in there...DS's room used to be my sewing room and now that I don't have one, I don't have anywhere else to store my fabric stash). Yesterday I cleaned out the kitchen drawers. It's amazing how much STUFF we had that we don't use. I'm going to attempt our closet today, if I can convince DH to get rid of the clothes that are too big for him now!

You go girl...get down with your bad cleaning/organizing self!! I hate doing either in the first place...so nope, not me =( I didn't even nest with Vaughn...I washed and put clothes away and VIOLA - done!

We aren't horders, haha, so we don't have a lot of clutter or stashed away clothes. We are pretty good at keeping things moving out via donating to a local group. We have a cleaner come in once a month to give our place the serious scrub down but then we touch up weekly...so right before baby comes, hopefully its just washing and putting away clothes again! =)

You inspired me to clean up my laundry room, halfway anyways. Now I need to do something about the linen closet and some portions of my livingroom.

I've NEVER nested before, so this is all new to me. LOL! I was brutal with DH's clothes and I forced him to go through them with me. At least half the closet and clothes on the floor are from 80 lbs ago! That means they've been just SITTING there for 2 years! I'm trying to be brutal with my clothes, but it's so hard with being pregnant...it's like "These jeans will fit me post partum. These are way too small, but I WILL get back into them. Etc." I'm actually giving away stuff that I've made myself, which I was avoiding doing before. And I'm getting rid of all shirts that end just a few inches below my waist...I like/need them longer for at least the next year! We've got 3 large trash bags full of clothes to donate now and DH is washing ALL of the clothes he's keeping. I literally cleaned out his dresser, so he has places to put them once they're clean.

I had this with my last pregnancy. Now, I get it in bursts but then I have days where I don't feel like lifting a finger. Today I went to my classroom and I was suddenly all into cleaning things out and organizing. I hope I start really deep cleaning my house. I will do a project here and there. I organized our cupboards, drawers, pantry, medicine, etc. I won't have a nursery to decorate this time so I think I will probably do a bedroom makeover to our room, where the baby will be for the first year or so.

She lives way closer to me, so I call dibbs first! I wish I had the urge to organize. I will have to force myself to do it later to clear out all the infant girl clothes I have to make room for baby boy clothes, but not yet. My nesting urges show up in the form of decorating a nursery. Screw the rest of my house, that baby room is going to be perfect. My mom always ends up coming over in the third trimester to force me into a deep clean

I am a cleaning nut these days! I have been cleaning even my bathroom daily and cleaning the tub at least twice a week! *gasp* and I used to do that... umm.. about never until there was a gross ring in there lol.

I have also been organizing and getting rid of stuff that we don't need to make room for baby stuff. It gets to driving me sooo nuts that I have a hard time relaxing and going to sleep at night!
