That quote, in a beautifully designed desktop wall paper I found through How About Orange, has been my inspiration for the last week or so.
It may sound as though I'm being hard on myself, but I really could be more productive. I could find better ways to do certain things, and I could watch a lot less TV. Still, my intentions are good that that has to count for something, right?
That all said, 40 Bags 40 Days starts this Wednesday! I have my first few days all figured out. Unlike Sarah over at Clover Lane, I count weekends because they allow me to tackle the big projects (re-configuring the kitchen; dealing with the attic; beautifying our yard). However, that gives me days off during the week. I'm also going on a few conferences just before Easter, so those days are lost.
- Wednesday, 2/13: Digital devices. Move music around, remove unused apps, clean the screens, and get my portable life in order.
- Thursday, 2/14: Needlecraft supplies. I like starting with this, since it makes my goal to finish crochet projects a little easier. I'd like to think this will be quicker than last year, but I'm not so sure.
- Friday, 2/15: Main bathroom. The shelves are cluttered and not as useful as I wish, and the area underneath the sink is not great looking either. This is mainly an issue of a deep clean.
- Saturday and Sunday, 2/16-2/17: Kitchen! Now that we've been in our house a while, we know where things should be in order to be more efficient. I'm especially excited about creating a coffee and tea station.
I'll try to get as many before and after pictures as possible, but these posts can get monotonous. Therefore, I'll be keeping them to Sundays. If I can find a way, I want to link up other home organization efforts with my own. I'll let you know if / when that materializes.
