Greetings all! I am casting aside my lazy blogging and photography from my iPad and iPhone to bring you a fall project: 31 Days of Cleaning Small Spaces! I'm joining The Nester in her annual 31 days of writing on one topic project. Originally I wanted to do something really out there and meaningful and ambitious. I've spent some time offline reflecting on things, and what I realize I need most in life is discipline. And what I need around the house is a little order. But, like everyone, I'm busy. I'm volunteering at school. I'm a cubscout den leader. I've got two kids to pay attention to. But I also have an hour a day to do a small project and write about it. And I very badly need to clear my spaces so that I can be creative again.
The kinds of things I will be cleaning, purging and organizing are all small spaces that can be taken care of in an hour or less. The pantry. The fridge. Under the sink. A bookshelf. A whatnot basket. A junk drawer. It's breaking the elephant up into bite size pieces. My track record of actually keeping up with stuff like this is not so great. Hopefully I can get a head start this weekend to make a day or two buffer for myself. At the very least, I will post as often as I can with updates!
A bloggy friend at The Domestic Fringe led me to this whole idea. Be sure to check her out this month. She's also hosting a Pinterest Party in November, love that:
Wish me luck!
