House TalkN is a fun lookiloo at houses, houses, houses. It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

My Name is Kerry and I am Neat Freak.

Yesterday, my "friend" and journalist extraordinaire, Julie, ratted me out on her blog post.  (Her payback to be blogged at a later date)
It's true.  I admit it.  I am a neat freak.  That's right.  Big, flamin' neat freak, loud and proud about it!
My friend, Audrey asked me "But HOW do you put it into practice?"  Well, now that the cat is out of the bag, here you go.  My big tip is to have a place for EVERYTHING and make it purdy.
My "Mister" loves to mix these items up and wait for my shriek!

Coffee station, aaah.

Our key catchall is in an old phone cubby.

Drop your coins here, please.

May I take a message?

Quickie numbers, art and a REAL calendar!
( Full Disclosure - We all have a place to let things slide.  Mine is my laundry table - a mound of unmatched socks awaits me now.  Too ashamed to take a picture of that. )

  1. Wow!

    Congratulations! Everything looks great!!! I love your "coffee station". I have one also, but it hasn't been used for a while. I cut off caffeine since I'm pregnant and I miss my morning coffee so much!!! :-)

    Enjoy your weekend, my friend!

  2. Luciane- With all 4 of my pregnancies, I vowed to never go back to coffee...clearly, I am a weak, weak, woman!
    Love HomeBunch, btw!

  3. "I wish you could see me sitting here, morning hair sticking straight up, barely able to type because stuff is piled high on both sides of the key board and barely able to roll around in my chair because there are papers literally over almost every inch of my floor. Help me Neat Freak! Help me!
    The not so neat sister"

  4. I try to be neat, I really do... but my family conspires against me and it's so hard to keep up the fight against chaos and toddlers.

  5. Good job! Thanks for linking to my Organizing link party.
