If you are just joining us for the first time, WELCOME, to the 12 Week Home Organization Overhaul. We are currently in week nine and are finishing up our children’s bedrooms. We have eliminated and organized their closets, clothes, and toys. Whew! How do you feel? You have accomplished a great task! Now, there may be some of you, like me, that are not quite finished. That is O.K. Don’t be discouraged. Home organization is a process of little tasks every day. Just keep it up! You can do it!
- Vacuum both bedrooms
- Make all the beds (Is yours made?)
- Grab your purse
What?! Yep, you heard me! This may kill some of you 😉
- Empty it completely out on the table
- Go through everything.
- Throw out all the garbage (old receipts, old lists, etc.)
- Anything you have not used in the last month, get it out of there!
- Put everything that you use back
Doesn’t that feel good! And much lighter too I suspect. It is amazing where clutter collects. Even in our purses. Think back to the last time you were looking for something in your purse. How long did it take for you to find the item? Those little time suckers are what creates frustration and chaos in our lives. SO, in the words of Elsa, “Let is go!” 🙂
Tip of the day: In today’s digital age, we have this very handy little thing called a smartphone. Even those with out a smartphone probably have a dumb phone. But these can be used to our advantage. My phone has replaced my appointment book/calendar, address book, grocery lists, to do lists, and even my budget. Think outside the box! Use your phone to decrease the clutter in your purse.
Celebrate your successes! A clean and well organized purse feels so good! Look at those kid’s rooms. Blessing our family has huge rewards. DO something fun with your kids today! Enjoy your day. Enjoy your well organized home!
