Little Victories

I’ve stated before my struggle with organization! Well, I failed my 40 bags in 40 days challenge. I got to just over 20 bags, which was a dent, but there’s still so much to DO! I’m slowly and steadily making progress and here are some of my “little victories.”

I cleaned out all of my kitchen cupboards and pantry. There were quite a few things I haven’t used which I’ve boxed up to sell on eBay. I’m thinking during this process I might be able to make some money, LOL! I also went through my closet and have some business clothes and dresses that no longer fit; they were post pregnancy clothes so they were worn very few times. I’m planning to sell those as well.

I was able to get a few things done around the house that I’ve been meaning to do for YEARS honestly! I finally put up a towel ring in our master bathroom (I’ve had it for two years)! I no longer need to keep a hand towel hanging over the back of my vanity chair outside the bathroom, yay! Here are some pictures!

The foyer got a bit of a sprucing up this month as well. I cleaned out the dresser we have in the foyer and adjusted a picture that is hung on the wall to the correct level. This time of year with gloves, hats and scarf’s all over the place I found some old baskets in my office that I used to sort and put them in the bottom dresser. I had the kids help me so they know where their items go and they had fun helping. Here are some pictures of before and after.

My goal for this week is to clean out the three closets on the first floor; the hallway, bathroom and living room/main closet. I’m doing the 5 day clean eating challenge again this week so I’ll need to make sure I have time for workouts every day limiting my time to dedicate to other projects. But I’ll keep plugging along making little baby steps of progress!

Until next time…… Thea 🙂

    • Yes, I agree! I have three ages (5, 3 & 1). It feels impossible most days to keep the house even half clean! That is why I set my New Years Resolution goals to de-clutter and get rid of stuff we don’t really use. Less stuff means less to manage right! LOL!

  1. Great job! I love the feeling of “a place for everything, & everything in its place”. Of course with lots of kids, that doesn’t happen here nearly as often as I’d like. But you’re right- it’s about the smaller, realistic steps to improve our surroundings.
