Organizational Goddess…yeah, right!!!

001 after

I am an organizational goddess….under a full moon, in my dreams, in an alternate universe.

My fantasy is for everything to have a place and to have a place for everything. No clutter on counter tops. No junk draws. No pile of magazines. Etc. Etc. Etc!

I may not be living this fantasy, but I am working hard to declutter and organize one corner at a time.

This week I focused on four bathroom draws that were in dire need. I am shocked and embarrassed by how many expired medications we had in there! There was also a ton of junk and things that belonged in other places.

Lots of stuff was thrown out, other items were moved to their proper location.

Success!!! I have de-cluttered and now need to go buy some draw organizers to corral the rest of the stuff.

Here are the before and after photos (some look better than others, but trust me…this is a huge improvement!):

Daily Prompt: The Full Moon


Weekly Challenge: Improving Something

small steps 4.12.15

I am going to set a new challenge for myself every Monday to improve something in my life.  Some challenges will be easier than others. I am going to try to make each a manageable and achievable task.

Last week I set the challenge of drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day…and I am proud to say that so far I have stuck to it.

Most challenges will probably last more than a week, such as drinking enough water daily.  Others may be quicker hits like cleaning out a closet.

I am going to spend sometime today trying to figure out what my next few challenges will be.  I am going to start by focusing on challenges that will make me healthier, more organized, learn something new, and help improve and/or expand my social relationships.

I am open to suggestions.  Please let me know your thoughts.

PSA of the Day: Starting today I pledge to take small steps to be the best me I can be
