As my wife (and before that, my mother) would tell you, I’m a pretty messy person. But because life is full of contradictions, I am also a big declutterer and anti-pack rat. Less STUFF, I cry. And I really like being organized. I’m a list maker by nature (and nurture, thanks Mom!) and I love it when there is a good system to things.
SO! When some other awesome ladies on the internet decided to do a “get stuff crossed off your perpetually To Do list” project, I was all for it!
These are the things that I’m going to try to get done in the next few months. By the end of July, I will:
Move the still-too-big toddler clothes from the basement to a storage box under our bed.
Remove the too small/too warm clothes from Frances closet.
Go through the “done with this” baby stuff in the basement and either donate to A Wider Circle or pass on to friends.
Clean off the bookcases in our living room.
Clean out bathroom vanity and medicine cabinet. Discard expired medications.
Get photos into the frames we got for Christmas.
Get those framed photos up on the wall.
Get last year’s Christmas Card framed.
Scan in my childhood print photos.
Get an album for those childhood photos that I also want to keep in print.
Add all my print recipes to Evernote.
Make Frances the Sesame Street book I got a Living Social deal for.
Lots to do, wish me luck!
