  1. Hello Nicole, Your title gives me chills. I too know how to organize. I do it during my sleepness nights, even dream about coming home from work and the basement is finished. My personal organizer is 6 months into a T.B.I. (concussion)recovery and it is progressing very slowly. As I enjoy my latest L.H.J. like a lizzard on a cushion, the deck got power washed and I sanded and painted the picnic table maybe a deep red. This made me sleepy and L.H.J became my sleep mask. I assure you my projects would make for a lively featured article. After you get moved in I will wash and iron your clothes and my husband Attilio will create great meals in exchange for your hard work. Most sincerely Deborah DeClaudio. Cleaning is my game, organizing a bit lame. God Bless

  2. So part of me says, “no way I’m sharing this article on Facebook! I want it all for me!” but you know I always like to share your stuff with all the world (that didn’t sound right did it…)

    I mailed off my pics, but now here is the question: will LHJ fly you to the winner’s house? Because we are in california.. and I’m pretty sure I know how you feel about CA. And I do live in the “happiest place in America” lol.

  3. I join. It was and with me.
