Day 28! Can you believe it? Where has the time gone?
So much has been accomplished the last 28 days (will share in tomorrow’s post). But there is still so much to do. Here’s the list of areas I still need to go through.
- Bookshelf and TV cabinet in the family room
- Finish the Den
- Under the beds
- Finish shredding documents
- Spare room closet
I’ve come to grips with clutter and realized no matter how much time I put into sorting, tossing and organizing, it will creep back if I don’t stay disciplined. That can be a rush for all of us when we’re tired, in a rush, get up late, our kids are making us crazy, anything that takes us out of our normal schedule.
The best way to combat this is routine. Get in the habit of sorting the mail before it comes in the house, a 20 minute quick pick-up before going to bed at night, set places to put dog leashes, purses, wallets, backpacks. If your waiting for the microwave to run take 5 and straighten the junk drawer. In other words, I think a little wasted time can always be squeezed in. Five minutes here and 5 minutes there adds up.
On another note, how do you like my new header? I put it together at 2:30 this morning. That was after Divot started barking at something and then I couldn’t go back to sleep. Oh well, TGIF!
