October 8, 2012

It has begun! I am officially attempting to de-clutter the house.

So far, I've turned around all my clothing hangers and cleaned up the kitchen pantry a bit. I understand the concept of breaking things down into small, manageable tasks. I'm actually glad when a 'challenge' comes with instructions to not overwhelm myself or set unrealistic goals for the day/week/month. But then I get impatient and think "But I don't want to wait till next week to clean the hall closet. Maybe I should do one task a day instead of one a week. And the garage needs to be sorted out... and toys donated... and cabinets reorganized..." You get the general idea.

I thought we were finally all done with whooping cough but the cool front brought new respiratory aggravation. Praying it is gone quickly because hearing all the hacking and sniffling is depressing.

Decluttering Tasks » The Organised Housewife:

'via Blog this'

A friend of mine posted about this on the Facebook the other day and I've tried and tried to take a look at it but I just can't seem to get organized enough to free up the hour or so it'll take to peruse the list of tasks. haha. Isn't funny how that works? To find time to learn how to declutter/organize, you have to first somehow BE organized. *sigh*

Also, I tried to post this yesterday and failed to complete it. That should say something...
