    Default Mini-Organizing Session

    Okay...today I want you to walk around your house and find 10 things that are out of place and put them back. This should not be difficult and you'll feel better after you've done it!

    Oh, and for you sneaky sneaks...it can't be, like, 10 toys that you just toss in a toy chest. Those 10 toys count as one item. I want 10 different items from different homes in your house. Got it?

    I need to put away way more than 10 things, but that was an excellent start. The real problem is the piles of things that are near their proper homes....

    So I'm going to actually attack those areas tonight to take care of the friends of those newly-organized things

    I cleaned my house this morning,,,,,and of course I put tons of stuff back in it's place, but the main thing that I put away or threw away was:

    My friend has lost weight and gave me tons of her clothes! Some fit and some didn't, anyways those bags of clothes had sit in my bedroom floor for weeks, I finally put some in a pile to hang up and put the rest into my closet, LOOKS so much better now in there!

    Also I have a place where I put my kids coloring/paint/ and other workbooks and art supplies they use. It was a total disaster area, so I organized it and threw away all the pictures they had colored or painted. I hated to part with all those pretty pictures, but they are constantly making me more and I just cannot possibly keep every picture they draw or color. Needless to say that looks a whole lot better too.

    Now is my time to play on the computer as I do some more laundry! Which is another thing I washed some comforters and blankets that had been in the laundry room forever and put them in our bathroom closet. I do however need to clean the laundry room really well, amazing how all that lint can take over your laundry room in no time at all!
