So today was the start of my 4 Weeks to a More Organized Home. I'm also combining that with 30 Days to Prepare for Christmas from centsablemomma.com . I'm excited to see how things go each day.
Today I created a written morning routine. I haven't really had a set morning routine other than getting kids off to school and doing morning devotions. Beyond that my day was just whatever I chose to do. While the flexibility is nice, without a set routine I find myself doing lots of reading & blogging and slacking on the unfun stuff like doing laundry, vacuuming & cleaning out the fridge.
So my goal for this challenge is to get more of a balance so I have time to do the fun stuff and still have a clean, organized home. With the holidays quickly approaching, I thought it would be good to incorporate preparing for Christmas as part of my daily list. I found a great list with daily suggestions to help get me prepared now to reduce stress and chaos come December.
Today's assignments didn't take me very long and I'm hapy with the little bit of progress made. I decided since the sweats I slept in made me feel great, I'd just keep them on!! At least until time for me to go out for some errands!! So maybe I didn't follow the first assignment exactly, but whatver works, right??
I've been needing to sort through my stack of books, so I used that as my "Find 7 things to get rid of today". And actually I reduced my stack by 11 books!! So I see day 1 as a success for me.
How about you? How did your day go?
