{I'm In The Zone}

I have no idea what has come over me but whatever it is I hope it's here to stay! I am in the zone! The Organization Zone! I'm soooooooo tired of the clutter and stuff in my house and I'm finally doing something about it.

It started early last week with getting a shredder. I do all of my banking online these days, including paying the bills signing my life away to all my creditors so why keep all the paper lying around? So, that begun my journey.

Next I organized my office with my sister (which I posted about this weekend here). Today, I took all of the paper, boxes, mail and stuff out of the kitchen and moved it up to my office where my new shredder is. Then I took all the fake greenery above my cabinets and tossed that. Who needs more dust catchers anyway? I even went through all the cleaners and chemicals under my kitchen sick, trashed the old ones, and put the ones I rarely use in a bin and brought to the garage. Ahhh, it feels so good to get rid of unnecessary mess. All the clutter was really starting to get to me. I was feeling like my house was chaotic all the time. I was edgy and cranky with Princess Emilee and Princess Gracie because I just could not get a grip on things. It's amazing how doing a little bit of cleaning makes you feel so much better.

My goal for the rest of the week:
  • Buy some cheap shelving for the basement and move some of my dry store items down there (i.e. canned goods, pasta, soup, paper towels, toilet paper, etc.).
  • Make room in my cabinets for items we use on a daily basis but have no place to put them (i.e. cereal, bread, shake mix - for the hubs)
If I can get some of this stuff done this week along with the laundry that never seems to go away that I tend to put off because it seems impossible to conquer, I will be sooooooo happy. Oh, and if I can manage to eat healthy and count all my Weight Watchers points, then this week will have been one of the most productive in such a.long.time.

I so need to get into this organizational mood. . .I decided I needed to focus on one room at a time.

Kate, you should see my kitchen. Big difference from this weekend. LOL

Amy, it's been a long time coming. This summer I was useless when it came to this. We were so busy with VBS that I barely did anything around the house. Feels good to get organized. I'm totally lovin it. :)
