I've attacked two paper piles, one of my biggest pitfalls. The bills are ready to pay, I have a small pile of things to file, and a stack went out for paper recycling.

bought some new artwork and had it framed and hung on the wall within a few days

Found a "Home" (in a drawer) for some winter gloves and a new purse that I won't be using right now.

All of my dishes are clean, so I moved the dishwasher to a different spot.

Washed my favorite blanket, dried and put it away.

Poured the partially filled spray cleaners into one bottle, then threw away the empties.

Combined all of the tissue boxes that only had a few tissues in them. Then I put out new boxes of tissue in each room.

Refilled the liquid soap dispensers in the bathroom and the kitchen.


I am so glad I am a member of this team, It helps me remember to be organized and to stay organized

not sure if this is still the current thread...

... but anyway, I cleaned out the fridge before going on vacation.

Just bought new shoelaces for my favorite work shoes and fixed them up with pads so they are more comfy.

Unpacked my suitcase from holiday travel.

Sorted a bunch of mail that was on the kitchen table. Need to institute a no mail on the table policy for 2012!

SOCK DRAWER!

- Did it quickly, got rid of about 4 pairs of worn out/saggy/faded socks.
- Roughly grouped the white / athletic socks together, the black work socks, the knee highs together.
- Found some fun socks I'd forgotten about! And arm warmers, too! (which are already coming in handy)

Didn't get too OCD about it, just a small quick thing to make getting dressed easier.

I got home from a 1 week vacation (went to Germany and Austria to see the famous Christmas Markets.)
The very first thing yesterday was to unpack, put everything away, do all the laundry and throw out all the bits of papers, flyers and junk I picked up on the trip. At the time I thought it was stuff to keep -but realized it was just junk.
The plants are all watered and today I need to cut the grass.
I'm getting a late start today - because I still have jet lag......couldn't sleep all night.
But I even have the suitcase put away in the garage and put a couple of dryer sheets inside - so it will smell nice next time I use it.

I had a great time - but it feel good to be home.

PS - I lost my cell phone!!! darn it all - what a hassle. Now will need to get another.

I spent most of Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning giving my bathroom a thorough cleaning. That was a good feeling. emoticon

Well, after all of those good feelings, I had a sewage backup that is all inside my tub. I say not fair. emoticon emoticon emoticon

But I am still glad I did all of this. I will have a clean tub again. Thank goodness I take showers. LOL. emoticon

Packing for vacation today, so everything is getting organized around that process.
It's much easier now that I recently took the time to organize my clothes into piles of sizes.

Smaller sizes...yay!

DS and DD are coming home from college today! :-)

That said, everything in the house is getting cleaned. Since I've organized many areas of the house already this year (thanks for your encouragement), this has been easier.

Today has been a very "organizing" day for me.
I paid all my bills (online and checks) I'll walk the post office in a while to post them.
---
Called and made several appointments that I needed to take care of.
----
I'm going on a trip - so I made all the arrangement to stop the paper and mail, called the bank and credit card companies and I think I'll all set.
-----
during this week - I need to pack, but have my packing list all written.
So, I definitely feel like I am organized now.

I cleaned the computer room ,took outside screens off. Took a small table out of room , got rid of old computer chair, replaced it . Did laundry,& sorted through clothes to take to center. I feel real good that I accomplished my chores for the day ( that was yesterday ) I come home from work at 7:00 pm this evening I am usually so tired when I get home & feel stressed, However; I am going to make it my goal to do at least one thing on those nights I feel I cannot do it I am going to push myself no matter what.I hope to be reporting every day on here of what I did as a household chore.

I am going thru the whole house and putting away all the stuff that I have just set down, and not put away. I'm getting rid of a bunch of papers (old mail, clipped ads, just junk)
and I'm clearing "surfaces"
The kitchen , living room, both bathrooms are done and now I'm working on the
computer/sewing room......so I had better sign off and get busy.

I have cleaned up my cupboards so that I could clear off my precious counter tops. I actually had one whole empty cabinet and got nearly all of the items off of the counter top. The top of the stove has been scrubbed as well.

Next stop if the buffet! I need as much empty counter space as possible for Thanksgiving dinner! Plus it all helps to make Christmas decorating easier when I don't have to deal with the clutter.

I got my closet and dresser cleaned out of the clothes that don't fit anymore!! Dropped them at Goodwill and picked up some clothes that do fit, but hopefully I'll have to do it again in another month or two!!

I got my two address books consolidated into the newest one. I emailed the people that I knew had moved. I completed the first run through for the Christmas cards that need to be mailed. As the new addresses come in, I'll do those cards. They will all be ready to go in the mail the Monday after Thanksgiving!

This way, they should have time to get changes of address to either get back to me or get forwarded to new addresses if I missed them.

Two years ago, I was really suffering from SADs and the Christmas cards got written halfway. Some got mailed, some didn't. I found some of the ones that didn't get mailed this summer when cleaning up piles of paper. I am a little anal about them now. Plus seeing the return cards come in throughout December really perks me up.

cleared out and shredded lots of junk papers, loaded the dishwasher......I'll run it when it get a little fuller (but it is a good place to stack those rinsed dishes ready to be washed.)
I went to my 2 exercises classes today and really enjoyed them both.
We had a sub-teacher for Yoga and her style was a bit different - but I got to push myself further than I have before.

Chat more later....

I cleaned the oven today - something that I have put off for too long.
It looks really nice now - need to pick up some of those foil oven liners to keep it clean.

I also finished 2 charity quilt tops - so I can turn those in to my church group this Saturday.

I did pretty good with my eating today and even logged everything I ate - even the 2 tootsie roll minis.....
Chat more tomorrow

cleaned off the kitchen counters and did a load in the dishwasher - it is still running, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow to put the stuff away.

More organizing on the planned home improvements - I went to several Home Depot and Lowe's stores again today and found doors, handles, locks, bathroom faucets..... almost done and just need to find Shower/tub faucets, drains etc.
Sent an email to the Home Repair guy and told him I want him to do all the
repairs/updates that we talked about and estimated.
I'm looking forward to having it all done.

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

Did touch up painting that I've been putting off for over a year.
Last winter I installed and new thermostat for my heater and needed to paint the wall around the new box on the wall. I did that and did touch up to all the scraped, dinged, smudged and chipped places thru the whole house. I'm waiting for the paint to dry and see how it all looks.

Got lots of books on CD loaded onto my computer so I can get the many cd containers off my desk and put away, or returned to the library.
Desk looks pretty clean for now........

Found two new (never opened) sheets in a dresser drawer.
Found an old Peach color fitted sheet in that same drawer (bad elastic). Made two fitted pillow coverings from this old sheet.

Cleaned out old paint cans (small cans) from under the sink.

Yeah for getting things done. emoticon

Shined my sink and stove top, pulled chicory by the rock retaining wall. Tough buggers! More where they came from! We have a Guinea Pig at work and I am pulling a few dandelions for him each morning on my way to work. My lawn is most weed free!

Very small step here - I went through a sock drawer and saved a sack of perfectly good socks; I just won't wear them because none of them keep my feet warm. [Cold feet, warm heart...]

DD is looking through them right now. Then I will see if my sister and her four girls can use any of them. Then it will be the rag bag...

At least that sock drawer looks nice now!

Sableness great job on clearing out those books. I cleared mine out a long time ago and now I only get paperbacks from the used bookstore and sell them back to them when I'm done.
It feels good.

Today I made some calls to get some work done on my house. I've been putting this off for too long and so I feel good that I made the calls today.
Now, if they will just call me back and schedule the work.......

Welcome Home Knuckles - if your group needs any fabric....go to Quilters Paradise - they
are having the annual stash for cash and giving way TONS of donated fabrics. I picked up
a bunch for my guild and for Prayers & Squares. Lots of nice stuff and large enough for backings.

I'm a self-confessed bookaholic (see my photos). This morning I've been back at it, cleared another patch in a bookcase I hope to get rid of by Christmas. Then I would have only...10 bookcases. I did manage to give a small one to a friend who needed it last year. No idea how many books I've already cleaned out, sold on Amazon and ebay, given away, donated, sold to bookbuyer, etc. Like lbs, the progress is SLOW BUT SURE.

I bought a shoe rack for my cellar and then reorganized all of our shoes so the ones we have upstairs are the ones we are currently wearing on a daily basis and the ones on the downstairs rack are for other seasons (Summer, Winter/Snow). We finally have order and a good overview !

I've been on vacation this week and stayed at home (tomorrow I travel). I can't say I did a whole lot of fall housecleaning this week, but I did manage to stay on top of the laundry and dishes and was able to organize some stuff. At least I didn't make things worse for myself.

today I did 8 loads of laundry (all the sheets and blankets off the beds), swept the bathroom, vacuumed/swept my daughter's room, cleaned and vacuumed the living room, washed dishes then cleaned and swept the kitchen, moved clothes from old dresser to new one, re-made the beds. this evening we're changing out our cook stove for a new(er) one and I'm making dinner-and washing dishes again. and bedtime routines of course.

so far have 2 loads of laundry done and did some cleaning/rearranging in the bedroom to make room for a new(er) dresser. Worked for just over an hour (part timer) and am doing lunch, then a trip 45 minute trip to get mice (to feed our pet boa) and fish (I promised my daughter). Then back home, more laundry and another 45 minute trip in the opposite direction to see the s/o family for a few hours and then back home to do dishes, more laundry and more organizing in the bedroom before bed.

My main goal today was to clean out my office. I managed to clean and organize my crafts area. Dusted everything. Tomorrow I need to get caught up on my accounting stuff and file the things that are supposed by be filed. I will also get my budget back in line.

The most important think I did today was visit my first nursing home for my husband. Man was that hard. Of course this first visit was to a facility that is just beautiful and the price went right along with it. I have another 31 visits to do. Sure hope that 1 of these places is in my price range.

I found a box in a back closet with receipts from 2003 - went through and found nothing major so I shredded everything. Now I have a nice shoebox I can send a Hallow'en package to my grandgals.

I did a load of laundry last night. I will put another one on tonight and dry the one from yesterday. I gathered up a couple bags of rubbish and threw it out. I am trying to keep up a decent amount of work but also have to be careful of my back and arm that are hurt (tendonitis caused by spasming back muscles). I also started aquatic PT this morning so did an hour or "strength training" ... I'm about to go wash my frying pan and make some eggs for dinner :)

Oh my goodness, I'm so busy, and my bedroom's a wreck!! I've been okay about keeping it clean but I keep having stuff to bring into it (like a pile of birthday presents from the weekend!! emoticon )

But last night I rearranged the furniture because I finally decided the layout wasn't working. The new layout didn't really work either, so when I woke up I moved it around again, and now I think I've got a much better layout. Much more floor space.

Oh Boy - I'm going thru all my fabric (piece by piece) trying to discard as much as I can.....problem is that I hate to part with some of it (know I'll probably never use it.)

I'm trying to gather up 30# to donate to charity at the local quilt shop.
I need to weigh it again.....I think I'm close.
I was able to empty out 2 bins - that is something......

While doing this I was also doing laundry and I finished it and have everything put away.
So, I guess I am making progress - and my eating has been under control today.
