Earlier this month I completed my 40 bags in 40 days challenge. I had challenged myself to get rid of a bag of stuff each day for Lent. I ended up getting rid of 42 bags of stuff from my home. a few days the bags were small and others days they were larger. Most days they were a tall kitchen bag of stuff from the house. Some was trash, some recycled, and some donated but it made a huge difference in my closets.

I started this afternoon - going thru the whole house
room by room
and picking up every piece of paper, magazine, anything and if it is not a keeper, it goes into the trash.
I've finished 2 rooms so far and I'm on a roll.
I don't get into these moods very often.......but I'll take advantage of it today LOL

Good morning. I have realized over last few weeks that my clothes are best organized by color. I think, when I dress, in color. It's kind of fun!

i read that someone was going to try 15 minutes of cleaning or organizing each day. my goal i think will be to just start something. even if it is only 5 minutes. sometimes the little 2 minute tasks can add a ton of clutter in the long run

I'm keeping the house clean and picked up...... but today I made a total mess in my sewing room. I am sewing tons of scrap strips and making place-mats for Meals On Wheels. They are turning out really well and I'll turn them in at my Quilt Guild meeting in early May.
Good thing I can close the door on the sewing room for a few days.

I sorted some seasonal clothes, getting them ready to take to the consignment shop/goodwill, cleaned out my oldest son's closet, and since my MIL is out of town I went to her house and vacuumed everywhere and steam mopped all her hard floors. I pick her up from the airport this afternoon. The rest of my house....in need of some serious attention.

Spring cleaning sure leaves you with a fresh Good Feeling doesn't it ?.. emoticon I have been going through one room at a time and it is amazing how much stuff gets purged and hauled off to St. Vincent Depaul's!
Once each room is done and totally clutter free and clean then it's just going to be a few minutes maintenance every day which I look forward to... Have a great day everyone!

managed to do a couple of loads of laundry (folded and put up even) while working yesterday. one advantage of a office in your house.

I've been reading all about the rattlesnakes too.

Saturday evening and I'm exhausted !!! not much cleaning or organizing... but too many volunteer activities. I need to learn to say "No, sorry I can't help" but I know I am a "yes" person.
Anyway the house is clean except for doing laundry and tossing out the recycle stuff (newspapers, junk mail, etd.)
I've been reading on a local chat board that there are loads of rattlesnakes in our area. Some dogs have been bitten and couple folks almost stepped on little ones on their patios or sidewalks. So I am going to be super vigilant - YIKES.
Seems like we have had more reports this year than in the past. I had a small mesh fence added to my back fence which backs up to a yard/canyon - so I'm hoping that will help. (I have had several lizards - but no snakes so far.)

I new it would happen. I bought a new sewing machine, and miraculously found all my equipment and manual for the old sewing machine (which is, granted, about 40 years old). Oh well, one to give away.

I am also well on my way to organizing my sewing room, and so happy to consolidate things that have been strewn all over the basement, first and second floors of our house!

Real life is interrupting my wish to clear out and organize my sewing room. This week's "zone" is the foyer and laundry room, and I will be starting to sort out winter clothes in favour of spring clothes (I hope I'm not jinxing anything - I have definitely had enough of snow for this year!)

Snowing this morning. Guess I'm glad I did plant my Easter Lilly's yet? Coats are ling my walls, again. That's because spring summer clothes are in drawers, and hanging in closets.
I did put up 2 cork boards. Harder cause I've also begun crocheting sewing, and coloring, again. Ill find the correct way to organize.

Worked in the yard today. Even with all the rain we have had, I have developed a few dry spots in my new lawns....so had to water with the hose.
Tomorrow is trash pick-up day , so I had to gather all the trash, empty all thw wastebaskets, collect the recycle stuff and have it all out at my curb in the bins for pick-up tomorrow AM.
Got some paperwork organized today and realized that I need to purge out my little file cabinet with the stuff I have kept and no longer need.....but can't find a couple things that I do need (receipts)
Went to Yoga class this AM and always feel so much better after that.

It is a free class at the local library and this AM for the 3rd time someone pulled out of the parking place and didn't look and scraped or hit my car. Another scratch.
Sheesh. It is minor and I told the lady not to worry - but she really needs to learn to be careful in parking lots.

Thanks Anne for creating this month thread. I totally forgot.
I have been dealing with a major leak in my house - behind fridge and damaged carpets and baseboards.
Thank goodness it is all fixed now.

I got the carpets steam cleaned as part of the deal - the fridge delivery crew did not seal off a valve and had the leak for 2 weeks before I discovered it.
-------------------
Now have steam cleaned carpets, cleaned baseboards, new fridge - good to go
