Day 31: Recap Time. Well, thanks for hanging in there and sorry for the
letdowns of the last week. It is very hard to blog every day!
I am so glad you joined me and a lot of people have let me know
that they were inspired by this. Righteous!
Also hard when your baby gets sick, on his birthday no less!
A quick look at giveaway/sell pile, yay!
I also donated a whole trash bag of clothing.
And I counted an extra eight large trash bags
over the course of the month. Rockin!
I still have messes, everywhere.
I will say this: nearly every space I've worked on
is still pretty clean and tidy.
The pantry being the glaring exception.
But what can you do?
What I learned over the course of this month:
Picking a small space a day works for me.
If I can't do one every day, no biggie. Just tackle it when you can.
To do lists don't work for me: I'm never honest about how
long a project will take, and I set myself up to fail.
Getting these small spaces purged and organized greatly
improves the quality of my days.
Teaching my kids to break a large project into small tasks
is a skill that will serve them well their whole lives.
Clutter attracts more clutter. Order attracts order.
I have too much stuff, still.
In all things, you've got to take care of what's really
important first: kids come before any of this!
That pretty much sums it up!
Thanks again for reading! Like I said I still have tons of spaces to clean
and purge, so I will post those as often as I can. I'll probably return to the usual
things I post: household stuff, kid stuff, craft stuff, garden stuff,
thrift and frugal living stuff, outdoor stuff. Prettier pictures than what's
in my closets! I hope you'll keep reading!
Till next time: happy cleaning!
