4 Weeks to a More Organized Home: Day 3

I have decided to follow along with Money Saving Mom on her 4 Weeks to a More Organized Home series, starting today. I have been feeling like we have way too much stuff and this will be the perfect opportunity to declutter and NOT be overwhelmed. Each day, she lists assignments that will help you to organize your home and not be overwhelmed. So I have decided to join in.....

Today's assignments were:

  • Get dressed in something that makes you feel great

  • Sit down with a cup of coffee or tea, refer to your list of weekly goals, and make a list of no more than 5-7 specific things you want to accomplish today.

  • Complete your morning routine {if you don’t have a morning routine, take some time to create one today! Read my How to Develop a Routine That Works–And Stick With It series for step-by-step help.}

  • Set the timer for 15 minutes and do a quick-clean of your bedroom

  • Clean out your freezer.

  • Find 7 items to get rid of today. 

  • So, how did I do??

    I got dressed in a pair of black dress pants, black dress shoes and a teal sweater. It felt nice to dress up. 
    I have not made a morning routine...but am thinking about it.

    I did a quick 15 minute clean up of our bedroom. 
    I cleaned out the freezer above the refrigerator and our stand alone freezer...Each is now organized and I have enough food to last a couple weeks at the least in dinner meals.

    And I found 12 ITEMS to get rid of....I put pot holders, cutting boards, an apron, straws, etc into the bag for Goodwill. I am now up to 49 items gone!  

    So I think day 3 went really well....Hopefully I can continue the momentum as the days go on!
