I started going through some of mine and my son's clothes, linens, and things laying around the house. I was able to donate 4 bags of things to the thrift store. It's a start.

ROSIE - Sorry for your loss. Hope things get better for you soon.

Everyone - thanks for the suggestions. I believe I will make a task list for us and try to stick to it.

My dad had a stroke on the 17th, but luckily he came out of it. I've been trying to run over there and help them out.

I think as long as my laundry is clean I won't worry about 'put away' for now.

September starts next week!! Oh goodness, get ready for Fall!

Bed made, laundry sorted for washing
cleaned and got rid of an old BBQ (propane and over 25 years old) rarely ever used.
put it in the drive-way with a sign on it that said FREE and WOW someone took it !

I went to a charity event for "gently hugged" baby clothes (I knit and crochet for them a lot) They had a nice fund raising event and I met some really wonderful people.

I also returned 2 items to Wal-Mart for refunds

Now I sorting thru all my knit and crochet patterns and putting them into a 3 ring binder.
I am thinking I should put them on line......but that is for another day.
So, I guess I am making progress today..........and it feels good.

OK Knit and Crochet patterns are done..... can't believe how many duplicates and general junk I had in there. Now they are all in plastic sleeves in a 3-ring binder.

I spent yesterday getting my work and personal journals organized. I found that I would take notes and then move on to the next day. If I had a to-do, that would get transferred to my to-do list, but I would lose those possible ideas or future "tasks". I recently discovered the Bullet Journal. You can buy a bullet journal or you can implement the concept into your already existing journal. It is like adding Franklin Covery to your journal! I am so excited. The big thing I have to remember is to go through my monthly entries at the end of the month -- perhaps I should do this exercise at the end of each week. I will keep you posted in how it wors for me. Just Google Bullet Journal and you will find all sorts of info - the website is the best source of info.

What do you use to clean your stainless steel appliances? Everything I use leaves streaks or something behind. I find just wiping with a damp cloth is best but not satisfactory in my eyes.

I'm good at procrastinating but last night I don't know what got into me. Caught up on bills, balanced my checkbook (a month later), bagged ink cartridges to send back to a company (2 months later), matched my receipts to my credit card statement (71 transactions), made two separate lists (makeup and supplements) to order online as soon as I receive promo codes in my email, decluttered my desk area, shredded credit card receipts and junk mail, and made a grocery list which I shopped for today.

Still have lots of little things that need my attention and who knows.. I might even set up a new wireless printer that's still in the box sitting in a corner for almost two months.. or maybe not..lol

Wishing everyone a decluttering weekend (great therapy)...otherwise have fun!!

Good job TRAVELBUG12 emoticon

Feeling organized today..... bed made, laundry is all done and put away. Got my car washed (because I got new tires yesterday - LOL)
Gardner came this afternoon and the yards look really nice - still some bald spots where the sprinklers need work, but he will take care of then later.
Hope everyone else is feeling organized today.

Oh no Knuckles - guess I'm glad I don't have AC..... but I'm still suffering.
GOOD NEWS TODAY.
A couple weeks ago I mentioned that my wallet was lost.... I've been trying to replace stuff
and get cards reported etc.

Today I got a call from AAA that someone called them and they have my wallet!!!

It is a very small watch repair shop in Poway and I was there a month ago getting a watch band repaired. They have had it sitting in their lost and found box for a month - and finally decided to research - they called AAA because my card was in there.
WOW I am so relieved !!

It has been extremely hot and humid here - no AC at my house, so it is just too hot to do anything. I do make my bed everyday and keep the kitchen counters clean and wiped off - because it is too hot to cook - I just make sandwiches or have a pkg salad.
I'm going to do a load of laundry today.......
Hope it cools off soon. We have a lot of very very HUGE fires burning here in California and with the drought - hot weather - winds in some areas. I just pray for the safety of our firefighters.

Today I got back to the living room and I emptied out one corner that had business papers. I sorted them. I thought I was going to have to buy a rolling file bin, but, once I threw away all the junk mail there was only one box full of folders. No need to waste money. I am sticking with to it. 15 minutes a day. (really 2 hours.)

I am so very very sorry for your loss.

trying to fill out paperwork and take care of emails.

My foster dog was adopted on Sunday to a 7 year old little girl and her "mom" (based on age I'm thinking its grandma who adopted the little girl) I found out the next day the Madison was wanting a dog to sleep with her because she hadn't been able to sleep in her own bed since he dad died. Brought back so many memories. My kids were 13 and 15 when their dad died.

Rosie I am sorry for DS lost. 49 is very young. Sometimes laundry is not important at all.

What I cleaned in Aug.?
I left the living room and kitchen, I worked on those last week. I am not saying I finished those two areas. I am back in my own room throwing out things I don't need. I'll go back and clear the living room again later on. It is the place where everything from the rest of the house is gathering waiting to be tossed.

I'm soo disorganized! Not sure where it started. I moved in with my boyfriend 3 years ago and his daughter (teenager) stays with us on weekends.

The kitchen - dirty dishes and no dishwasher.
The living room - lots of clutter
The bedroom - all the laundry that needs folded stored in baskets, as the washer and dryer are in the basement

It seems like I'm always 'fighting fire' just folding enough for the day (storage is limited.)

I'm trying to implement a system, and change. Just feel frustrated!

I do have a method for paying bills (just a simple Excel spreadsheet on my computer.)

I did clean out the junk drawer this month and am using it for storing towels/dishrags.

What to do with the 'junk?'

I re-positioned an the washing machine so I would have more room. I had to go to Home Depot but the changes did not cost that much and now it looks better in my kitchen. Empty space looks great and it cost but it is worth it.

Monday - a new week. I'm doing pretty good so far, but still looking for my lost wallet. I need to just let it go and move one - it is driving me crazy.
I spent the weekend dog sitting for good friends - they had a quick trip out of town.
I'm getting ready for my yoga class and found another free one for Fridays.... so I can have 3 free yoga classes per week if I want. I love the stretching exercise and I need it.

I have already given away 2 boxes stuff and one black trash bag of clothing a few days back. Now I have another large trash bag full of blouses/tops ready to go to Goodwill.
Also, I am purging, regrouping and reorganizing.

Last week-end we stocked up - 42 meals in the freezer to throw in the slow cooker later on.

This week, I started up on my craft room - inventory of things that are there, and trying to figure out projects to do with them. Lots of denims from old jeans!

I downloaded an app of my smart phone called COZI. and so far I really like it. its for lists and calendars etc, and once you set up an account, you can have multiple people adding things to the lists. So as I think of stuff that I need at Costco or Home Depot or the grocery store I can add it right away, There is also a To Do list function. I haven't tried the calendar part yet because I already have a calendar program I am using.

That was a good idea T-bug12, to separate the important things. I hope you find the larger wallet. This was a good learning experience. Last week my head popped off at the gym cause I couldn't find my purse. It was not in my locked locker with my clothes, boots,another tote bag, and lunch bag. I raised an alarm, got management involved, then while on the phone with the police I found it in the locker near by with no lock. I learned not to carry too much stuff. I'll have to let some time pass before I can show my face at the gym.

Last week (I think it was last week) I lost my wallet - OMG what a mess and a hassle.
I didn't lose the smaller wallet with money and credit cards, but the larger one with
important stuff like Medi-Care card, insurance card, library cards, zoo membership card.....
I have been running around like a crazy person looking everywhere in my house, car, garage, etc. Spent the day yesterday online applying for new Medi-Care and Med ins cards.
I'm sure I'll discover other items that were lost too....
I am feeling sooooo stressed.
Just thankful that the money & credit cards or driver's license etc were in a different place.
This all makes me feel so unorganized !!!
Lesson learned - make scanned copies of everything. -

I need to tackle my garage, too, my dd did some things, cleaned a little bit, but, she moves stuff where I do not want it put or etc, makes me upset about that, and she has some stuff stored out there as well as my brother does and he had some stuff put out there after ha had a fire at his place, about 2 yrs. ago. Plus some other stuff, emoticon one of these days I'll go out and do something

question?? could you "rotate" the stuff. so like every 4 or so months, replace the stuff on the shelf with stuff from the box?

I have found I do much better with less junk out on my counters etc. In fact I have too much stuff on my kitchen counters and need to come up with a plan to store it in cabinets etc.

speaking of the garage, the "kids" finally started on mine yesterday. I had to give them an ultimatum because their crap has been all over the place out there for a year I think. I have a bunch of work boxes I need to take to storage unit. Which that needs to be unload and organized also. I'm hiring one of my friend to help me do that this week. (btw TB, Christy is great at helping with big projects like that and is a great organizer if you want help with your garage. And I'm more than willing to come help out too. a great way to get exercise I figure lol) I think they ended up with like 10 huge trash bags of stuff yesterday and its not done yet.

what I would like to know is how does my office desk and my assistants desk become such a disaster area so fast??

Poohbear, I feel like that at times, too, and I like to keep stuff just because, never know, might need it sometime, then would not have if gotten rid of, on the other hand, if you get rid of it would you really miss it, this goes for me as well.

Today I did some sorting of junk in the Living Room/Kitchen ( it is sort of one space). I emptied one shelf of kitchen stuff so that the shelf would not look overcrowded. I still have the things in a box. I could live with out most of it. Don't need most of it. Now I either have to hide it somewhere else or toss it. I want to keep some of it. I don't know. I think I am trying to think like a designer or something. Space for me is more important than cute things that don't match. But I like the cute things. It's just too many. I am ambivalent. I really don't have the space though. Help.

Hi all,
Here we go with a new month and a fresh start on our organizing and cleaning.
I was reading an article in a mag about how clutter/dirty/messiness affects our moods, behaviors (like eating) - very interesting and motivating.
I feel like I did well in July with the clutter and keeping up with the house
(still have a full and messy garage "hanging over my head")
How did you all do?????
Happy August
