j0ette, i was afraid to use old fashioned oats. glad it worked. will try tonight. i'll add "some" peanut butter, too.happy to use bananas to sweeten. suspect you need the peanut butter for fat. have you made them without it?
thanks.

Minnie, that's the awesomeness of this recipe. I just started dumping stuff in. Didn't measure anything! Made cleanup a breeze too! ;) no cluttered kitchen to declutter when finished. :D

I think I had medium sized bananas. I used old fashioned oats. The recipe I started from said to use quick oats. I prefer old fashioned (they don't seem to be as processed).

The peanut butter is where I started. Lol I had a jar of natural PB that had separated. I dumped the jar in my bowl mixer. After I was finished remixing it, I put most of it back in the jar. Then tossed in the bananas. Ran for some oats, and came back to my mix a bit more mixed than the recipe showed. Hand stirred as many oats as I could then added the chocolate.

I planned on finding my kitchen table today. Instead, I made super healthy cookies! :) love Pinterest!

Cookie recipe:
2 ripe bananas
1 c oats
Add ins of choice: ie chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruit, cinnamon, vanilla

Bake 350 for 15 mins - recipe called for greased cookie sheets. I used parchment paper instead.

They were very good!

Mine had a hint of peanut butter and dark chocolate chips

Today I have spent quite a bit of time with work e-mails, purging and organizing, once again. They pile up so quickly, and are truly a daily battle.

Today I decluttered the desk, organized it, filed, and worked on the budget. It feels much lighter, and not so overwhelmingly cluttered being in there.

Next is a pile of recipes/ideas, on the desk that need organizing. But I'll have to make space on a bookshelf for them, once I declutter it! :-)

I removed my new "inspirational" workout dvd's from the couch today. I thought if they were front and center, I would get to them. I have tried a few, but I've been inconsistent, and haven't touched them for a couple weeks, since I've had bronchitis and sinus infection. Anyway, They've been put away, and the couch is clear.

Also, I've made a pass over the kitchen countertops, kitchen table, and the entrance table, which is my biggest trouble spot. Oh, and the closet too, to see if I want to add more to the bag.

I've de-cluttered and re-organized the fridge. Then put away the clothes hanging outside the closet door. The clothes I plan to wear, then don't.

De-clutter is just like exercise. Just 10 minutes can turn into much more, and little bits add up!

I plan to keep this up, and maybe even make this a streak!

Once again, I'm working on that entrance table on our porch, among other things. This is actually our back porch/laundry room, entrance, etc. A magnet for everything that we bring in the house.

This week we've experienced just about every weather condition, and the coats of every type have piled up on the chair backs. All are in their proper place, along with every piece of laundry, and surfaces are de-cluttered. This is a battle!

A ray of hope: During summer in SC, we don't have this problem. It's too hot to remove anything from the closets!!

My friend dropped off his laundry yesterday so I did his and mine together. I also cleared off the kitchen table. It seems the kitchen table is a magnet for the mail and newspaper to be dropped on when coming home. I actually have a table under there.

I live alone so usually do dishes everyother day especially since I eat a frozen dinner for dinner. The only thing I dirty is silverware and a glass for drinking milk at dinner. I have done dishes after each meal instead of letting them accumulate. I don't think it wastes that much dish soap or water.

The past couple of days I've just been staying on top of the mail, keeping the table and counters from accumulating stuff. I love seeing the table and countertops free of clutter.

This weekend I'm going to finalize my full bag of clothes, donate, and start a new round.

Great job everybody! It feels good to lighten up a bit, and get rid of stuff!

Today, I de-cluttered the laundry room surfaces, and finally put away, the clothes hanging to dry.

Today I de-cluttered my desk at work, and my work e-mail in-box/out-box/sent, etc. Quite a bit of much needed purging and sorting.

Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Today I focused on the kitchen table and counter clutter. Everything has been sorted, removed and put in it's proper place. I've also collected the recipes lying around that I've intended to make, but haven't. They are in organized, and back in the drawer. It's amazing the difference just removing a small number of items can make. It's neat and tidy!

Just finished my younger son's room! What a mess! It looks so good now. My husband is now working on our main storage closet- which is a huge challenge! emoticon

Boy do I need to declutter. I have what I call the inventory room. I did flea markets and it is full and I mean to where you can hardly walk in it, of stuff. I have to sort it and see what I can sell. I do want to do flea markets again this year. Not like I use to every weekend, but one a month or so.

I love SparkPeople

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

I am responsible for my own happiness.

This SO needs to be done, and soon! I'll start with the island this week, and have it cleaned and organized by next weekend.

Are we there yet?

I'm so glad you guys like this one. It's one I surely need to work on myself.

I did begin today eliminating the pile of mail that accumulates on an entrance table, and a small pile of filing in the office. It didn't take long, but sure felt good and made a difference. A few minutes here and there makes a huge difference.

I've been slowly filling a bag with unwanted, or loose clothing over a couple of weeks and plan on wrapping it up next weekend, by making a few more passes through the closets.

My "in-box" is next!!

One of my goals this year is to do 5-10 min of decluttering a day. I am working on boxing up all my size 14-18 clothes & working on getting rid of duplicate items in my house. This is a great challenge. Thank you

Do you have clutter?

Our challenge is to remove at least 1 item from any room, closet, cabinet, pantry, drawer, or pile each day. More is even better, but start slow if you need. Focus on the items you know you won’t use or wear again, and consider donating items you no longer want/need. You may not have a use for them any longer, but someone else may be in need of them. Keep a bag or box on hand, or in the room you are focused on, and just drop items in each day, or each time you make a pass.. It’s much less overwhelming this way. Be sure to have a deadline in place for the removal of the bag/box to ensure it does leave the house, by the end of the week. Then start anew if you wish!

Spring is right around the corner, so let’s get a jump on lightening up! What do you need to de-clutter?

Come back and share your goals and progress.
