Have my challenge!

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

I have said for years that I want to inventory all the antiques that my husband and I inherited so that my children know what each item is and why it is important to the family. My dad did this so I am lucky that I have something to go with. However, when my sister and I went through his house after he died we had trouble finding some items because he did the inventory by category. I am going to do mine by room because I do not think I will be moving anything any time soon. This way, when my children need to go through item, they can go room by room.
I also need to get rid of things that are no longer needed or used. Plan on cleaning out closets and clutter. Along with dusting and polishing furniture and silver tea sets.
So my challenge is two fold, to be accomplished together. I am going to take the house room by room and as I do the inventory on the computer spreadsheet, I am also going to be cleaning out. I am going to reward myself by paying myself for each days work, if I work at it for at least six hours a day. Then when the whole house is done, I get to take that money and go to Pandora to buy charms. I love Pandora charms!
Tomorrow I have the grands and we are going to Chattanooga Aquarium for the day so my challenge starts Friday.

    This is a fantastic plan!!! I think you'll have so much accomplished, even more than categorizing, that you'll be getting a truck load of charms!!

    Very good plan, when I feel overwhelmed, especially when company is expected I take it room by room a day at a time until done. There is out bedroom which needs clothing hung up rather than folded on trunks, but am affraid I would forget what clothes I have. Any how you can do it !! emoticon
