Welcome, welcome to Organized 31. If you’re new to my blog, I’m Susan and I’m a mom to 3 children, a dog and a leopard gecko. My husband is on active duty and that means we move a lot. The plus side is we’ve seen many interesting places, met many dear friends, and learned a lot along the way.
If this is your first time visiting, whenever you see words in blue, they’re a link and that means you can click on them to see even more information on that topic. (go ahead and try this one and see how it works).
At Organized 31, I share tips I’ve learned along the way as a military mom. These are tips that can help anyone anywhere.
I’m happiest when I’m organizing something, almost anything. I even beg my friends to let me come and organize their stuff. I believe life is better when organized.
With 25+ moves under my belt and a Type A-ish personality, I’ve learned a few things that I share to make your moves just a little easier.
As the mother of 3 and a Parent Educator for almost 20 years, I’ve picked up a few tips along the way that may
save your sanity be helpful to you.
My family loves celebrating holidays and birthdays. I enjoy crafting, so you can imagine that I have just a few holiday themed crafts to share with you.
I’ve given up trying to figure out how and why I love crafting, and just accepted it. I love to craft. Most of my crafts are quick and easy ones you can do in an hour or so and with your children. Once in a while I’ll throw in a more involved craft just to keep it interesting.
Many of my craft and organizing projects use repurposed or upcycled items. Because our life in the military is always changing, I like to use repurposed items to save money and so I won’t feel guilty getting rid of them when they don’t work in our next new house. Plus, it’s being a responsible citizen.
My daughters and I enjoy fashion and expressing our personalities through fashion.
One of the great things about moving around with the military is all the great foods you are exposed to and the recipes you pick up along the way. I share some of my favorites with you here.
Made in the USA
I’m a supporter of purchasing items that are made right here in the US of A. There are many reasons that try to always buy American-made products. I will often write and tell you about American-made products that I’ve found.
Please come join me on my journey through life whereverthe military takes us.
