1. Sort & organize vacation pictures
2. Clean car carpets
3. Move winter clothes to storage - my son carried the box upstairs for me. Now I need to get it into storage
4. Toss donated items in a box & call for pick up

Did get #2 & #3 done. Ended up piling more stuff in my donated pile, but didn't get any of it in boxes. But at least I made a little progress.

I picked the one thing that's been bugging me for forever....cleaning my wooden shutters. I got to two rooms yesterday and it felt SO GOOD to have them pristine again!

Woot Woot!

A fan favorite!!

Sometimes just "taking care of business" or getting around to it is what's needed for us to feel free to focus on ourselves! This week is our clutter-removal challenge in an effort to down-size things around us that may be providing extra stress.

For instance, does your car need cleaned or straightened? How about your closet? Your room? Your office at work? Is there a box you've been meaning to go through or pictures you've been meaning to put in an album but you just haven't found the time?

Well, THIS is the week for it folks! I am giving your orders to Get It DONE! Blame me, I'm your excuse! What better time to get things in order but the present? :)

Pick one thing EACH to:
1. Sort
2. Clean
3. Move
4. Toss

this week. Do you need to sort your kids old clothes or even toss them? What's the state of your toaster or other kitchen appliances? Need a good cleaning? Your shower? Is the grout bothering you, or calling your name? How about your collection of old t-shirts, stacks of jeans that don't fit anymore and my personal dilemma used to be stacks of old magazines....Ugh. I NEVER seemed to want to toss them but I did, when we did this MC last year! I happen to love this one! I haven't even subscribed to any new magazines since then...yeah me. Ok, yes I have but it was only for 4 months, one per month! They are stacked back up again. (I don't understand my aversion to tossing magazines, but there you have it!)

I was a coupon fanatic for a year...now the papers are just stacking up...I need to sort through them and get back to couponing.....anyway, list the things you'd like to accomplish under each 'heading' on Monday! This is your week to get a Round Tuit. I'm giving you one! :)

I've given you some examples, but you all are so creative I just know I'll be inspired by your posts, so I can't wait to see them. And remember, folks, this is a MINI Challenge, so try not to add more stress to yourselves by adding additional 'projects' to the list, it will be detrimental and work the opposite of how it's supposed to.

So pick two of one of the items (Clean, Sort, Toss, Move) and earn yourself the big Award! Remember though: Extra credit is one thing....trying to rebuild a building is another! :D

Questions? Just ask!
