I am in the middle of a move. my dh is at the other house. it takes a lot of self control to not simply throw away half of his crap that is at the old house. i still may be doing a couple trips to goodwill without his knowledge (i.e. why does he need 8 coats, only 3 that fit?)

i am trying to clean and oganize, but feel constantly busy with all the tasks. i have devleoped a new habit at night and in the morning so i have a flow to take care of a few simple tasks so they are done each day before i leave for work.

I spent most of the day at a church packing up merchandise from our Mission trip to Guatemala - we are doing a sale on Sunday AM and we travel around to different churches for the sales. Lot of fun....but also a ton of work. I wish that more people who were on our mission trip participated in the packing and doing the sales...

Feeling very unorganized today..... sheesh
I got up and went to quilting at the church and had forgotten we are not meeting today, then drove to the bank to pay some bills and they were not open yet.
Decided to come home and plan the rest of my day and be sure to check the calendar and hours places are open.
-------------
I did finish all my laundry yesterday and got all put away.

Being unorganized for activities is just one of my dis-organized life LOL

I definitely feel like I am trying to cull daily, either something has been outgrown, stained, broken or just no longer needed.

I went through the whole house cleaned cupboards, closets and then rearranged drawers. got out to the shed and will do the garage today. Now its time for a Yard Sale. Everything is so easy to use and get to now. This was long overdo so I am patting myself on the back for all my accomplishments.

good for you!! I finally learned to keep a "donation box" handy because I was always finding stuff to cull.


question for the group. has anybody every tried making new candles out of "leftovers". I go through a lot of candles and have lots of leftovers. Have been putting them in with my linens to help the musty smell, but have too many in there now lol

As I begin wearing my summer clothes I am paying attention to things I don't like anymore and taking them right off and putting them in a bag to pass on. It feels great to let them go knowing right away they just aren't right for me anymore, even when they are often in good condition.

Tuesday - didn't do much in the house - but did some yard pick-up.
The yard across the canyon from me has an orange tree - or some type of orange color citrus.
They are about 1 or 2 inches in diameter.....well the birds have picked up dozens of them and they fly over and drop them in my yard.
I picked up at least 50 or more of them today and I expect to see more tomorrow.
Most of them are partially eaten and very messy..... yuck.
---------
The neighbors have also started ANOTHER noisy yard "improvement job" and he was out there pounding on cement type blocks until almost 9:00PM..... they are building planter areas around their yard........ their last noisy project lasted 79 days...... I sure hope this one is shorter.
Whew!!!!

Hello friends! I haven't posted in quite some time. I read Marie Kondo's "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up" a couple weeks ago and have been inspired. If you haven't read it, you should. It's amazing!

Today I emptied my kitchen pantry and filled a large garbage bag with stuff that was expired. Put what was left back in all neat and organized. Felt great!

Yesterday was Clean The Kids' Rooms Day emoticon My daughter came up with 2 large bags to donate and a bag of trash plus a bag of recycling paper. My boys had 2 bags of trash and a large bag to donate plus shoe boxes and papers to recycle. Hubby is ruthless when it comes to purging so that's how we got so much done. Now we will come home to clean rooms after vacation. emoticon

Returned home late last night from a 5 day trip by car - first long drive for me in many years.
I was exhausted !!!
But,
The suitcase is unpacked....all the junk put away and the laundry is drying the last load.
Feels so good to be home and hope to get my energy back soon.
It is really exhausting to drive 12 hours home thru terrible traffic !!!!

Emptied the pantry and organized it. Threw away some things that were no longer good. Was able to plan our weekly menu without having to go to the store for anything but perishables. My youngest also left the downstairs freezer door opened so we had to empty that. Feels good to be starting with a clean slate!

Sold the wine fridge today, I was disappointed that the two men who were supposed to pick up the free shelves & file cabinet never showed up yesterday. Both apologized & the teacher said he will pick up this afternoon. We'll see. Doing laundry & dishes now.

Laundry is finished and all put away...
I'm packing for my short trip - thank goodness it is a car trip, so I don't have to hassle with TSA and all the rules etc.
I can pack what I want to take.

I got home yesterday to find that my husband had done most of my chores for me! Love that man! I did make the bed, straighten up the bedroom a bit, and put away a basket of clothes that he had folded already.

I am traveling and can you believe, even here, keeping organized is a bit of a challenge. Doing some straightening in prep for leaving on Saturday. Ten days is a long time to stay organized in a suitcase and backpack! LOL

I reset my sprinkler timer - because of the drought we are now only allowed 2 days per week, and 7 minutes per station. I'll give it a try and may turn it all off - because the yard is all dead and don't see this helping much.
Bed it made and kitchen counter cleared off - may do a load of laundry tonight.

Cleaned out my shoe area, swept the basement, cleaned one of two china cupboards. Now out to garden but it is cold and nasty. I have to restock two ponds and feed the fish, and that might take some time. Then I have to wrap about 40 tiny little gifts for a child, to take with her on a long car trip - she'll open one every hour or two.

Took my mattress and box springs off the bed frame so I could clean and vacuum underneath.
Ouch, I am so sore. Well, I won't have to do that again for a Very long time.

Today I made a BIG mess - but it's for a good reason - I finally finished painting my new craft room - so hubby and I have been hauling all my craft supplies upstairs to stuff, er, organize into the room. It's going to take a while to get it all sorted out - so many things I've been wondering where they were (I had stuffed a bunch of stuff into 3 bins and just stacked it in the corner of the bedroom while we painted - seemed I was always looking for something that was packed away)(next time I have to pack stuff up, even temporarily, I'll do it in a more organized fashion!)



this one came out really dark, it's more like the first one, a light blue



But - I also got a new dresser - I had this cheap old thing that I bought when I was in college (in 1988) - glorified pressed cardboard with fake woodgrain paper veneer - it's served it's purpose as a dresser and I've more than gotten my $80 worth out of it.

I found an antique dresser at a flea market and it just barely fit into the trunk of the car but we got it home - we put that upstairs today and because I had been decluttering the bedroom earlier in the year it was just a matter of lifting out the clothing from the one dresser and putting it into the new one, with tons of room to spare - and everything stayed folded and nice - it was a pleasure to see - a few months ago it would've just been a tangle of pantyhose and tshirts and nightgowns. It still needs to be polished and the mirror cleaned but it looks so nice - I've wanted a real dresser for a long time!




Don't you just love my raspberry walls? (not)

(that's the next project! lilac here we come!)

I am off to a great start! I am at my sister's vacation home, and I am clearing out tons of old stuff...old shampoo, old food, etc. Thank goodness she has a large trash collector!

Hi Gang,
New month - fresh start.....
I am sure pleased with the major purging and yard-work that I did in May and I hope to keep the momentum up in June.

How are you all doing?????
