“Be Kind To Yourself”
“Be aware of your goal…….break it up into practical and manageable stages.”
I took Matthew Kelly’s advice and took a day off of cleaning the storage room yesterday to spend some time with my husband. We went out to dinner and watch an episode of Blue Bloods together.
However I woke up at 6:30 this morning at went right to work on the storage area. I know if feels like I am dragging my feet on this project, however I did break it up into manageable steps for me. I have about 30 to 45 minutes a day to work on the project. I wish I had more time but I do not. I have to correct papers daily or otherwise I have too many on the weekend.
Here is my starting point…..
My goal today is to dust off each shelf and get rid of what I don’t think I will use.
Ok.....to be honest I only got rid of about fifteen things. I really think I am going to use those glass jars. I am obsessed with mason jars. First, I cleaned out the buckets in front of the shelves and put them away.
Then I started at the top and worked my way down. Anything that was related to school work I put in the school area. I dusted and reorganized each shelf. If I felt I was not going to use something, I put it in the Goodwill bag or recycled it.
My flower collection and grandma collection are up on top.
Then I have my candle collection. I know I have a lot. I love decorating with candles. The ones I am not using I am saving to give to my daughter when she leaves me.
This is my glass jar collection. I know a bit much however I use them for everything, or at least I think I will.
Here are all the things I grab when I am trying to decorate a room.
Organized and Clean Decorating Shelves
I am now one step closer to my goal:
A clean and organized life.
