two weeks worth of laundry. ok, it wasn't that bad because we had washed a weeks worth earlier, just had never folded it and put it away. so had taken a fair amount out of the baskets to wear this past week.

two loads still in process (one in the washer and one in the dryer)

Daughter recovering from surgery so I did a bit of cleaning for her, some ironing, and brought some food. She is doing well and we pray that continues.

Love this thread!

Very busy day yesterday, so about all I managed besides work was a load of towels.

Busy again today at the office and will be offsite all afternoon. Hoping to get to some administrative tasks.

Good morning, Team. So many good ideas here this morning. Carol--how fun to brighten up a room with new pictures. And Celia, what a service to the Volksmarch group to take over the organization. I'm sure a lot of people will benefit from your efforts. And reselling books on Amazon seems like it will become ever more important with bookstores closing everywhere. Neat idea!

I'm taking on my fridge again today. My son's been home eating a bit differently and with his departure, time to clear the decks. And did not get to the kale in time... Someday I'll learn to eat it more regularly. Work still to be done in that department! LOL. Toni

Big bag of trash from the lower level (bedroom, laundry and exercise area). I also spent some time sorting through books to list at Amazon, (have never done this so not sure how it will go).

I've got the recyclables ready to go out, cleaned off the coffee table, end table and kitchen counter. I'm still working on today's laundry (a never ending task). I plan to return some things to the library and hit the produce market for some fresh veggies.

Sounds fantastic, Toni!

Long day yesterday, but I took care of several administrative items at work. At home, ugh, we have just assumed leadership of a declining volksmarch (walking) club, so we met with the club last night and brought home all their files and supplies. There went that clean spot in the basement from offloading supplies from another club.

Did some very minor file organization yesterday, but delivered the bags in my trunk full of books to the charity that collects them. Went out to lunch with my son who leaves for his wilderness expedition on Friday. Really fun to just sit and talk!

Since the weather is mild today (57* compared to the 1* we had just last week) I ran the winter coats through the wash. Also, boys laundry and towels.

I'm going to work on the small pile of papers on the kitchen counter and sort through library books to return.

Status on my January drawer clean out project: I've cleaned out 22 drawers and my pantry.
I have today and tomorrow to clean out the remaining 13 drawers. I can do it. The worst--the 4 drawers in my laundry room that collect all sorts of junk--I'll do those tonight.

Lisa - ah purse cleaning. Such a great idea to get that ordered.

I made significant progress on desk and office yesterday. It looks so much better. Now I can work on it today and feel calmer!

Helping my son buy equipment and clothes for expedition leadership training in Wyoming today after work. So we will be bringing lots of bags home. But the goal is to organize his packing so he can arrive with everything he needs for 10 weeks. Packing will be less hard than the delicate conversation (inevitable) between mother and son about being organized. Wish me luck! Actually, just wish me...my sense of humor. What 21 year old boy is organized?

Wynona, what a great win...congrats!

Good luck on your desk, Toni.

Yesterday I finally felt a little ambitious, so besides the laundry, I paid bills, tidied up the kitchen, and decluttered a few surfaces (or at least made them less messy). We are teleworking today due to freezing rain this morning, AND my boss is back at work, so I expect the day will be quiet enough for me to catch up on administrative tasks that have suffered.

I won a 500 dollar gift card to the container store a few weeks ago and I finally made it to the store today after church. I don't know how I'm going to spend it all but I'm sure going to have fun. Today I picked up a step stool, baskets for the laundry room , huggable hangers (I hear the really save space in the closet so we'll see), and a wall holder for the ironing board and iron. That left me with 380 still to spend.

Today I FINALLY organized the storage containers for our Christmas decorations. They have been sitting in the spare bedroom for three weeks. Managed to winnow out a lot of old and worn out decorations and found lights we don't use any longer to donate to our local thrift shop. The containers are back in the basement on the shelves where they belong and I am happy to have them there. I really do hate putting all of the Christmas stuff away every year and have decided next year, less is more. As I get older, I need a lot less froufrou to be happy on holidays. Now I have to get to that point with my clothes and collectibles! Onward...I guess. emoticon

YAY emoticon i finally finished my bank statements for 2012!!! In the processed i 'let go' of a lot of receipts I didn't need to keep and filed the ones i did.

Now i have to make decisions for the papers that aren't receipts. After that, I should be ready for taxes. (sounds horrible, i know, but now that the statements are in order, i think it will go more smoothly).

to REE: i feel your pain with the DH, my DH and paperwork don't get along any more than i do with paperwork. As far as taxes went, i pretty much had to 'threaten' to take them to a pro. preparer if he wouldn't help me, and he didn't like one bit, that so he started helping me. that was a few years ago and he's been helping more every year (though he still grouses about it).

i don't know specifically what kind of paperwork you have, of course; and i'm not suggesting you threaten, but perhaps if you offered to help and you work on it together, pick a time and place that's easy to work in, and offer an incentive or reward such as a dinner out after a huge of paper is dispatched, they might disappear more quickly.

just a suggestion. take care and good luck, whatever you do.

Due to so many nit-noids yesterday, I got only one of my Pick 3 done. Sure will be glad when my boss is back. I don't get paid extra for doing her work while she is gone.

Today there is yet another manufactured budget crisis. Good grief, I can't belief the poor, overpaid execs who can't plan their way out of a paper bag. I've had to drop everything else from work, cancel ST, and ask DH to run my errands for me so I can provide "instant" answers to this fake crisis that should have been handled by an orderly data call spread over several days. At least I'm teleworking and didn't have to drive to the commuter lot in the snow.

My laundry is D-O-N-E! woohoo! (at least until tomorrow...)


Today I'm going to work on the fridge (at least one shelf) and under my bathroom sink.

Ree-as for the cell phone, we have a pretty bowl that we keep on the kitchen counter that collects cell phones and keys. It keeps everything handy.

Great going, Ree! I saw a picture of remote controls neatly sitting on a table in a pretty little box on a table. I want THAT. We have 3 remotes and they are always lost. Now to find that box... Meanwhile sent off my essay to my writing group and plan to have a good day inside today so will get to organizing something. We have a dusting of snow so no walking outside. Do want to figure out some nutritious meals. My college age son is home and likes and needs richer food than I am used to eating. Gotta plan... Cheers everyone!

Because of icy conditions I have been house bound. I have used this time to be better organised, a huge cupboard/ closet was emptied for the first time in 2 years, it's all household linen , spare quilts, towels ,
tablecloths. Now all neat and tidy, do I really need 8 huge bath towels? I think some will be going in the give away bag.
I feel so much happier knowing that task is done

I got 3 loads of laundry done, dusted the living room and my computer area, and got the counters cleaned. Plus it's trash/recycle night so that'll go out too.

Ugh I haven't done anything the past few days :( I've gotten stuff taken out of the house, but nothing else gone through. I've been sick with a sore throat/cough/sinus stuff since Monday... BUT I've also been off of work since then (Mon/Tues for MLK, canceled my classes for today)... so I should have gotten SOMETHING cleaned out.

I'm caught up on my Etsy commissions and don't have to do anything for work today, so I'm going to MAKE myself go through something. I'm reading this thread for inspiration :)

Yesterday I re purposed a basket to hold my journals and special pens. I have a journal to cover every area of my life, health, house, spiritual, finance and daily. I was carrying them back and forth to work with me everyday as I never know when a thought or plan may hit. I decided to stop carrying them everyday though. Now if something hits me while I'm at work I'll type it in a document and then copy and past to my the appropriate journal.

Tonight I need to real the kitchen back in, so counters cleaned off, dishwasher unloaded and 1 shelf in the fridge cleaned before i head off to church.

Did okay on the things I picked to do yesterday. Not perfect on the decluttering or fridge shelf, but made a start. On the financial side, I balanced the checkbooks, paid bills, and downloaded necessary tax forms. In addition, I washed towels, just because I like fresh towels.

Met my writing deadline with a decent draft so now feel freer to get organized. Have a presentation to get ready for Sunday and plan to have fun with that while pulling together some information I have laying around into some semblance of order. Hope everyone has a good day. Love the idea of organizing just one fridge shelf. Makes the task seem less daunting and doable on a regular basis. Thanks, Celia

Unexpected telework day due to no sleep last night when sinuses reacted badly to changing weather. Still mulling what I can do today. It's not like there's any shortage of tasks that need doing, but finances (balance checkbooks, pay bills), clean one shelf of fridge, and declutter 2 kitchen surfaces sound like a good start.

Took down all the shears and blinds to clean and decided to just put the shears back up. I went to load the dryer and actually shocked myself when it was empty. I'm doing better than I thought with putting things in their place...lol

yesterday, I spent most of the day unearthing my desk of all the clutter (junk mail/old coupons/magazines,etc.) I thought I just had to keep realizing most of it has expired. I filled a big trash bin and now I feel refreshed sitting at my computer! : )

Now off to clean the family room where I exercise!

I try to remember in life, every day is a gift.
