Hi good morning!
Welcome back or Welcome if your knew!
I am Kandis! I am a Saskatchewan mom of 4 kiddos! I am married for 13 years now and I am in love with my coffee, planner, organizing and routines! I am totally into making shelves look pretty and categorizing stuff!
It is funny because I love organizing this is something that I have started so many chapters in my life with and I still learn new stuff every time I join in any organizing things! There was a organizing session not that long ago that re-motivated me!
There is always little key sayings that’ll pop out and stick with you as you were watching real learning or just learning something new expecially when you’re passionate about it you’ll always pick up on something else that sticks out to you as you form habits with the older stuff that you learned!
Couple things that really stuck with me this last organizing seminar is to not get frustrated if you don’t have time to do all whole project that once! This is something that as really stuck with me for a years and I tried to encourage everyone that I help organizing with two know you don’t have to do it all in one day! One of the biggest organizing things that I do is that I work or try to work shelf by shelf! Corner by corner, just little bits at of time.
Another thing that absolutely stuck with me and this is a new one and I will probably always remember it now is that it’s okay to know when you were busy being busy! Let’s think about this let’s reread this:
Try to figure out or putting your planner or in your schedules:
what time are you busy being busy!
This phrase literally changed my life right now! We all know that we’re busy as for the day we all know that we have crazy hectic lives! But, to be able to run a really nice strong schedule I’ve realized she’s right and I need to start realizing and actually scheduling around my busy being busy times!
The same comes with organizing there was always something that will need to be organized. To be reorganized to be cleaned out, purged all of these things are a constant thing to be doing.
How I try to keep my organizing continuously kind of rolling is that every week I have a different room that I work on for my room zone, and so it then everyday or even just wants a week I will think about what space in that room needs to be organized or purged and then what needs to be cleaned or deep clean disinfected whatever the case maybe for that room.
To organize one shelf I know I usually only will need between five and 15 minutes depending on where I am working. And so I will try to figure out what the best time is me to take this Five to fifteen minutes to get the organizing done and then I know that it is done for that month. I say month because every week I go into a different room and so once a month I usually get into almost every room.
When it comes to work and I think you do not need to spend hours upon hours and days and days getting the stuff done. This is not how typical working people would get their house organized. Start small start with whatever time for a new half it takes me literally 2 minutes to clean out my cutlery door, or so organized our hair brushes. 2 minutes! If I tell myself I can not do something for 2 minutes I need to read look at my times and my priorities LOL.
Throughout November I am going to be breaking down a lot more of my organizing strategies and Deborah tips and tricks that I have learned throughout the years.
Is organizing something that you thrive on or is it something that you struggle with?
What is something that you struggle with when it comes to organizing a space in your house?
I hope you will follow along through the organizing sessions of November it is truly a passion of mine and I look forward to organizing my spaces with all of you!

Hi good morning! Have you ever noticed that you can make a list you can even do everything on your list and then even blank or turn around and it’s like nothing ever got done! This is my situation lately at least what it seems like and honestly started me a little bonkers!
Hi I’m Kandis and welcome to classy classics by Kandis! I am a stay-at-home mother of four children from the ages of almost 13 down to almost three! I love them all but holy man do they make a mess. My children all have zones well my older kids have zones but they are required to help clean up everyday! A pretty good that’s definitely not Mama clean but, they are kids and not a mom so there will be a difference I guess!
We live in our house that we are in right now for 3 years and, it is a much bigger house than the one that we came from! Like much bigger than my little house yes, that was the point that’s why we moved we out grew our house and, I I love my house I love the space but I am definitely trying to figure out how to keep it all looking like a house and not a zoo!
I have tried a couple different routines. I have tried daily tasks for trying to cover all floors for example, to do the floors well then I’m vacuuming upstairs sweeping and mopping the main floor and trying to vacuum or clean the cement floors downstairs!
I have tried and being using zone cleaning where each week I am in a certain zone of my house and I pretty much try to totally take care of that one’s own room through the week then just tidy the others!
I have also been trying out combining both, I did this a couple years ago and it was working pretty good, and then life happened I lost my rhythm!
I have debated about just doing weekly running list where I have a list of a bunch of stuff that I want to get down that week and depending on how much time and what motivation I have depending on what task I do that day off the list! However that one is hard for me because I will only do my basics and just roll matter tasks over literally forever!
Do you have a system or do tasks as the need to be done?
I have decided that I think I’m going to try to order an hourly planner for the new year and see if I can organize my stuff that way! I’m actually very excited about trying to do a hourly planner!
Do you have a planner or just do lists!
I think with just the overload of changes in different schedules and trying to find my whole group again has kind of thrown me for a loop! It’s hard for me to shake out of it this round and I look forward to getting everything resituated and hopefully on a smoother train again! Choo choo
I am the type of person that does do better when I have schedules and routines I know this. But, too get out of my thoughts of how I had everything going and to try to re crop it but, still knowing what it’s going to work the best for me I think is what being is being tricky!
I do look forward to this new task of making a smoother system!
I hope this gave you a little motivation to get a cleaning rythem happening! There is something about having a clean kitchen in the morning that is addicting lol!
If you don’t follow me on Facebook and Instagram I will have links below!
I post more daily to dos there! Come get some mom motivation or give me some motivation lol!
Mothers can do anything but, together we are unstoppable!
Until next week
Have a great day, a wonderful weekend and a productive week!
Bye for now!
Halloween is always such a fun holiday I fine! Between all the ghosts and witches costumes and all the yummy candy that yes I take from my kids oh, there is just so much excitement about Halloween!
Halloween has always been one of my favourite holidays it’s not my only favourite holiday because I love all holidays lol, but there is something super fun about being able to be anything you want for one day of the year!
Hi I’m Kandis welcome if you are new and welcome back if you are a follower of classy classic by Kandis. I am a stay-at-home mom of four kids ages from almost 13 down to almost three! It is never a dull moment in my house it’s always a zoo oh, I tried to convince my husband that we should just go as a zoo because I would be so comfortable with this because it’s literally how my house rolls!
This year I didn’t go as all out as what I sometimes do for Halloween oh, it’s still a very crazy time with all the pandemic stuff and, for the fact that I couldn’t send baked goods to the school we actually didn’t send anything this year because I wasn’t going to the store to buy anything! Not the best mom moved but I have never thought goodies to take for the school so I figured why this year I guess I don’t know! The big kids did dress up for class though so that’s fun at least and, we of course are going trick or treating! My daughter actually tried not going trick-or-treating this year and I laughed at her and I told her how am I supposed to eat all your candy if you don’t go and get me any LOL true story!
For this Halloween blog I thought I would just give you a little tour of some of the decorations that we set up this year they are really fine, my pumpkins did wonderful this year and I forgot to post to sell online again Story of My Life… So, this year the big kids get to carve their own pumpkins the, littles will do some with all of us! Then if I don’t want to cut the carved ones down for the freezer I can just do some for jut the freezer! Yes, I actually did good on my pumpkins in the garden this year!
As far as goodies and treats and the house this year I kept it pretty basic! We had some cupcakes that I colored orange and tossed some green icing in it! We also just did some goodies and movie nights over the weekend! We also went and checked out a corn maze and kid activities!
That was our Halloween it was a slower Halloween, but it was definitely a good one!
How was your Halloween? 🎃
I will have some decoration pictures below of some that I did in the house!
