If you’ve stayed on track and have been organizing every day since October 1, you are TWO weeks into organizing for this challenge! My friend, Sarah, has been rocking-and-rolling through her house (I plan to update the post with her pics soon!). I am technically two days behind but am quickly catching up, though since I started with the biggest, most complicated space, I feel like I’m not moving very quickly. But things are getting done…just think what you have accomplished in two weeks! With two more weeks and a few days to spare, that will add up to a whole lot of awesomeness by the end of October, so keep up the good work! And if you’re just now reading, you can start today and go for 31 days from now…it’s never too late. The intro and past posts are here.
So far I have cleared the carpeted floor space downstairs, put away school keepsakes and other items that were in the pile on the floor, created new storage for scrapbooking keepsakes and sorted those items, and organized our upright freezer.
The basement isn’t finished, and normally I wouldn’t recommend hopping around from space-to-space until you’re done with the last one, but I needed to tidy up my office/daycare space this morning for a childcare interview. I had the best intentions of taking before pics but was rushing from one cleaning project to the next and when I jumped into this area, I completely spaced it. Let me tell ya…it was A MESS. I managed to get this one several weeks ago of one messy corner to the left of my desk…
This space in a built-in previously had some daycare supplies. I moved those downstairs, and was able to fit the two drawer units, a few boxes of labels for my organizing business (easier to keep in boxes so that I can take with me to jobs if needed), and my Astrobrights paper (which I intend to sort by color but I ran out of time).
There are a few more things to do in the office space, but I plan to complete the basement before revisiting those.
