Reading about all your activity makes me long for bed! I am getting laundry done so I can pack for a work trip that *I* am paying for (cheap organization, but I believe in the work that the association does). I'd like to claim credit for taking down holiday decorations, but DH did that while I was off for my hair appointment and facial. He's a keeper.

Last night I got all my bills paid, tax receipts totaled up and cleaned up the kitchen and dining room. Today I am going to focus on getting the kids' new toys put away and straightening up the living room.

I picked up my whole house this afternoon/evening. I'm having several friends over to quilt all day tomorrow and needed to put out more tables etc.
Scrubbed both bathrooms, vacuumed, dusted, put the last of all the holiday food containers back into the garage.....
I think I'm all ready and even have the snacks all prepared !!
I got a huge veggie tray at the market and I'm going to try to make that the focus of my
nibbling tomorrow...... Need to get back on the wagon of eating correctly.

no additional work on the house today--it was my Springfield/Sam's/Aldi's/Big Lot's/Hobby Lobby/Michaels and Mama Jean's run day. Tomorrow will be spent putting everything away, adding to my inventory, and fixing my SIL's birthday present from the items bought today.

My dog ran away this morning, so I didn't get as much done as I liked! (She's back now, fortunately!)

However, while sitting by the phone/email, I did go through a binder of teaching materials for classes I'm not teaching anymore. I was able to throw most of the stuff away :D

My step daughter left me with tons of stuff that she wanted me to store for her but I finally said no as I have a tiny home and no storage for my own needs. Soooooooooooo--I boxed up another load and mailed it to her. She will repay me for postage but I can only do one a month. Long story but what a great feeling to be on the way to getting it out of my bedroom.
Today I will deal with a few boxes of gift wrapping that Kitty dumped.

Cleaned out the kitchen cabinets while I was off work last week and started organizing what is going to become my craft room. It's hard to organize when you have nothing to organize your stuff into! Currently on the look out for an old book shelf and waiting to hang some peg board for quick storage as well.

NDteacher, what a beautiful thing you are doing by caring for a special needs dog!

MIL departed this morning, so I have my house back. The weekend will be devoted to taking down Christmas decorations and packing for travel. Today, I have HUGE deadlines at work, so back at it.

Not doing much but trying to care for my new dog, one with special needs, actually more needy than the rescue people led me to believe. I feel deceived but need to try and do what I can for her or she will be put down and it's not her fault.

Feeling like an organizing slug lately. MIL leaves tomorrow, and the weekend will be for getting ready for a trip. After that, I plan to get back into cleaning and organizing, but I love seeing all the motivation on this thread.

Technology day for me. Added memory to my computer, uploaded an update on the operating system and am back in business. Started tossing old cooking magazines and getting rid of cookbooks I don't use or refer to anymore. All this feels good to me right now.

I was looking in our medication box and noticed some pills are out of date.
I was not up to sorting it out then but it's on my list to do soon and restock the box.

This year (and yes I think it will take all year) My main focus will be on our screened in front porch. I am spending a minimum of 15 minutes a day working out there.
I did remember to take pictures, but not sure I will share. LOL
1/1--30 min I could see progress today
1/2--20 min: I couldn't tell I accomplished anything today. But I know that what I did today will eventually lead to it all being finished.

I also started a pantry inventory. I'm using this website: outofmilk.com It links to my phone as well. It has shopping lists, To-do lists and Pantry. I'm still learning how to use the site. But so far I like it.

I spent the afternoon with family. When I got home, I paid bills; and started my new planner for 2013 by transfering birthdays, events & appointments to it. Also transfered addresses and Internet account passwords. I have a few cards to get out & that will be it for today.

My son and granddaughter return to El Paso on Thursday and that is when my real organization will begin. Till then, I will enjoy them. They will be moving to Hawaii in the spring.

Spent the afternoon at Mom's house. When I got back I picked up after myself, putting away clutter and objects I'd left out. Then I did a load of laundry, picked up the kitchen and prepped greens for the week to come. Eggs are boiling on the stove so I'll be prepared for a good salad rather than a bowl of lettuce!

I danced the New Year in, got to bed late. I am wiped out! Started the first day of the New Year getting up at 5pm. Tomorrow I start on cleaning and organizing. My new thing this year is to be more flexible , enjoy life and to stop procrastinating I will ask my self threw out each day "what is the best use of my time at this moment?" Happy New Year!

I just finished taking down all my Xmas lites outside - about 1/2 of them had quit working
during the month - so I decided to take them down a bit early.
I also earned several steps of exercise.....up and down the 6 ft ladder many times....
pulling out dozens of staples with pliers and screwdriver - my hands are sure sore.

PS: I'm ready for the next holiday LOL

Probably Saturday for the tree, since we have some travel planned. So far today we've had a leisurely brunch and cleaned up the kitchen. I've also sorted the bills and am about to balance checkbooks in preparation for paying them.

Hi LQUEST4754 , I am an Epiphany person too. But put lots of other holiday stuff away today and sorted through all the wrap and tags, pitching what is old looking and giving away what I don't care for. Ought to be able to start next year with an organized set of stuff. Great to see the organized bins packed and put away.

I organized and put together a spot for gift wrapping. Set up a desk, scissors, tape and paper all on an unused desk back in a closet. It can stay there permanently and it has plenty of room to work and store! So excited to have that accomplished.

We can do this....together.

Happy 2013 everyone!

Yesterday I organized my daily reading and writing materials into a basket. This does not sound revolutionary, but for me it is. It's my version of a "knitting basket" though I don't knit: I read and write a lot. Now it's all in one place and I can carry it around. Saves a lot of clutter.

Excited to start the new year. Have signed on to the January Jump Start program and look forward to mixing up my routines with it a bit.

STITCHINGNAN - ever had a sleep study? I had sleep apnea and treating it can make all the difference to how I slept at night. Can't beat the change in energy either.

Wahoo - - a new year, a new month, a fresh start to get ourselves organized in all facets of our lives.
Happy New Year to Everyone.

I have lots of ideas for myself for the new year - I hope to achieve several of them.
