Day 31: Recap

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!

  1. "clutter attracts more clutter" so true! I was thinking of you when I emptied out the frig freezer due to no electricity. I vowed not to collect as much food as I threw away!
