Can you believe we’re already on Week 25??!! I can’t!! The last 2 weeks have been kind of crazy around here. I think I mentioned that my Grandma died so this past week I’ve been in San Diego with family. Despite the reason, it was a wonderful reunion. I haven’t seen most of my family for about 9 years! Isn’t that crazy?!!! Yeah, it is, so I’m going to drive back down there with my 3 boys during the summer and stay with Grandpa so we have more time to visit. I’m sure it will be a crazy drive, but we’ll get through it!
Anyway, how has your organizing been going? I hope well. This week I am dedicating my time to my craft area. I kind of just dumped everything from the farmer’s market on my desk and never put it away so it’s kind of crazy messy AGAIN!! I need to rearrange my shelves and make it more user friendly. I also am going to do the Farmer’s Market again this Saturday so I have a ton of projects I’m going to be working on for that.
I am also going to try to get back into my cleaning & daily schedule for the past couple months I have been slacking off and not sticking to my schedule at all. Having the kids home has been a little harder than I thought. I really want to get them into doing more chores and a better system down for them.
I have kind of reorganized how they play videos games. I didn’t want them to be playing them all day so the way we do it now is they have to earn 3 stars to play for 20 minutes. For each star they want to earn they have to do one chore. They’re usually the same every day; Make bed, put away clothes, clean room/play room. While I was gone Mark had Brynnan get a big trash bag and collect all the trashes from the bedrooms and bathrooms. I’m totally adding that one to my list every week!!
I have been kind of bad though, about keeping track of the 20 minutes, though. So, this week will be a little different and probably not my favorite week! But we’ll get through it:) So, here’s my daily list of organizing tasks:
Day 1: Clear of desk and find places for things that don’t belong there. Find a better way to organize ribbon!!! (My ribbon storage has been bothering me soooo much lately!! I can’t find the ribbon I want without making 5 of them come unraveled or fall off of the shelf!!! UGH!! I need to solve this problem!!)
Day 2: Reorganize shelves (I’m going to do as many as I can this day. Knowing me I’ll probably only get one done, but that’s ok!!)
Day 3: Continue shelf organization. If I have time I will carry out my ribbon storage solution, if I’ve come up with one by this day.
Day 4: Organize fabric stash!! It’s slowly taking over more space and I need to figure out something better for this!! This will probably mean reorganizing the two cube shelves I have sitting on the desk with my scapbooking paper and etc. in it.
Day 5: Finish organizing shelves and surrounding areas of my craft table.
My crafty tasks for this week are to finish making 20 bows, or more. Make a few cards and some stickers for my prices at the market.
Well, that’s it! That’s my plan for the week!! Wish me luck and I hope you have a great week organizing your home!!:)
Thanks for stopping by!
