    Exclamation Daily fix it, sort it, or clean it challenge

    I've decided I need to make a point of either fixing, sorting, or cleaning one item I don't normally work with every single day.

    Anyone care to join in?

    Today I'm going to fix a wind chime that was given to us for our thirty-fifth wedding anniversary. One of our resident squirrels chewed off the cord that held the clapper while the chime was hanging on our deck. It's been laying around for at least a year, for want of fifteen minutes or less of repair work. How stupid is that?

    I'll join! Today I'm going to clean one closet, sort 2 storage containers and then put them into the closet.

    Good deal! Misery loves company, after all.

    I didn't time myself fixing the wind chime, but I did it during a commercial break while watching TV. And yet it had to lay around at least a year waiting to be fixed.

    Then I sorted through a stack of magazines and papers, and then I cleared off a little folding table and put that away. My living room is looking better already.

    Today I washed my doggy's favorite toy. The little mechanism that makes it bark needed to have some stuff cleaned out of it so it would bark again, so I took care of that. Then I added some stuffing and stitched it up, and also repaired some other rips and tears. The poor thing has been severely abused, but it's still our girl's favorite.

    Thursday: I cleaned the closet and put 2 bins of fabric in it. I really need to get rid of some of the stuff in the bins but I will save that for later. (I have a hard time getting rid of fabric, even scraps. I always think I will make something wonderful for a doll or dollhouse someday).

    Yesterday: I researched how to destroy a hard drive so it data cannot be retrieved... then got out my drill and went to work. One hard drive destroyed and disposed of!

    Today I plan to mend something... don't know what yet.

    We wiped our last throw-away hard drive with a sledge hammer.

    I just finished a great culling, sorting so not much is left - at least I don't think there is. But yesterday I sorted all my remnant yarn balls by brand so they will be easier to use. It doesn't sound like much, but it's helpful. I should have done it a long time ago.

    I'm in. Today I'm going to go through a mountain of mail and magazines and see what I can get rid of.

    Great! I always feel better once I've organized a big stack of stuff.

    Did a much-needed purge and cleaned the fridge.

    Great challenge! I can think of several others I need to get done...

    I'll join you, starting yesterday ;-)
    I've mended a tear in our duvet cover.

    Tonight: put outgrown baby clothes in boxes in the attic (it's on one big heap in the attic now) - label the boxes and start finding places to sell them.

    Cleared the back hallway countertop - whew, that needed to be done for a looong time!

    Did a major clean and sort of the main bathroom this morning. Lots of empty containers somehow get stashed in the cabinets rather than making their way to the trash?!? It's all sparkling clean top to bottom and smells far better

    Next up? Dunno what else, but something. Today's the day.

    I had sort of a chaotic day today. Nothing bad, just busy and not conducive to getting much done at home. Maybe tomorrow.
