10 Best Home Organization Blogs

February 6th, 2013 - 10:19 AM

Confession time. I am not the neatest, tidiest person. This fault of mine has bothered those closest to me my entire life, from my mother, to my saintly sweet college roommate, and now my husband. Their cry has always been the same, “Brittney, you have too much stuff and nowhere to put it!” So, I started reading some home organizing blogs years ago. Now, I'm not a pro at this yet, but my home is much more organized than my dorm room or the first one-bedroom apartment my husband and I shared. I'm learning so much from these great organizing blogs, and hope they'll be helpful for you, too.
