Work through the cravings
Ok, so I was craving pizza yesterday and the day before. I ALMOST gave in...but started doing something and the next thing I knew? I forgot about my craving for Pizza.
Stay busy and you will win!
Sunday Spring/Summer Cleaning - Music does wonders
Time flies and the house gets cleaned with good tunes in the air...just turn on some music and start the day.
I managed to get so much done on Sunday I rewarded myself with a nap.
Music and cleaning - a match.
When traveling, ziplock bags really help organize. from small clips, gum, mints, etc. too camera safety and electronic cords - really made a difference.
Electronic gadget organization & Ziplock Bags - HEAVEN!
So, I have headsets, charges, earbuds, etc. all over the place.
I sat down...well, i tried to sit down, and took the pile that sits on the counter and decided to organize with snack sized ziplock bags and post-it notes in each bag so I know what is what. It is such a smarter, cleaner system. Now, all the bags are in one catch-all box, with labels.
Just do it!
It;s the starting that is the most difficult. Once you begin, you are on a roll.
Get off that couch and put on some music and move.
Cleaning and Organizing - Just do it!
I have to say...I took to the floor last night and went through three piles of paper and who knows what.
What a great feeling!
Just do it. Stop looking at it and saying you'll get to it.
You will fee so much better.
No time to clean out...buy some organizer bins
Put on some music and organize! Buy some bins/tubs and take that pile of junk, toss it in a bin...and at least it will look cleaner!
Then, when you have time, go through it bin by bin.
Throw change in jars...It adds up
Whenever I acquire change, I toss it in a jar (pickle jar, jam, etc.) and fill them up. I have TONS of jars filled with all sorts of coins. It really adds up.
