This weekend was a Spring cleaning…but in the Winter. I had cleaned out my closet and my boyfriends closet as well. We organized our books and dvd’s. Organized our office and even went into the garage. The only thing that I was not able to get to was vacuuming.
As I was organizing and cleaning out some old clothes, I was thinking about some great organizational tactics and solutions for all the clutter. Here is a list!
-Versatile Ottomans- ottoman/file box.
-Coffee Tables that can open for blanket storage.
-Multi-Layered console table. Stack you favorite books and even hide the unsightly objects into cute woven baskets.
-Don’t just use your sideboard to store dishes and stem ware.. store a few picture boxes and family home movies.
-Use curtains to hide clutter. Create a curtain skirt along the bottom of your pedestal sink or even around a desk or side table.
-Keep a charging station in a drawer of your console table as you walk in the front door or which ever door you use the most.
-Nesting tables, they are great to store small items on each layer.
-Side table pockets can be used to store those remotes that always go missing in the sofa cushions.
All my gifts are bought, wrapped and ready to go. The gifts for my boyfriend andI are under our tree. Our stockings are filled and hanging just right. My tree is still holding its own. My brother and sister-in-law are in town. My other brother will be here Wednesday. I have made this week a short work week (Monday-Wednesday). My laundry is done. I have planned our dinners for the week. I am all set! What a way to end the weekend and start the week!
Get moving people…only 12 more days til Christmas!
Over the weekend, I have managed to buy every Christmas present I needed this year. I created a price range for each individual…and I stuck to it!
I ordered all but two on the internet, and with shipping and handling included…I still stayed within the price range. Now, once they arrive (within 5-7 business days) I will wrap each one ever so gently and with love. I will use the same wrapping paper for all so they know who it came from.
Oh, I do have to mention that Thursday, is Tacky Christmas Sweater day… my theme…candy cane! I will post a picture this week for all to see!
Here I am…it is 5:50 am in San Diego and I am looking up some recipes online for home-made pizza. My brother is coming in town this week for the holiday and I have invited him to my house Wednesday night for dinner. He has never been to my house and I would like to just hang out with him. There is another reason for my invitation…I want him to get to know my boyfriend a little more. My brother will be moving back to San Diego this summer and I know that we will be hanging out more and more and I need for him and my boyfriend to be great friends too. We shall see, their personalities might clash just a bit. This is going to be one busy busy busy week, as are all the holidays. Never a time for rest and relaxation. Anyways…the recipe for homemade pizza that I go by…..
Well, I thought that I might post a blog about ‘FunDay MonDay’, but I will not be having too much fun today~bummer, right? However, my day will not be filled of starring at a wall…errands are on my list today, and lots of them. In fact, I barely had time to blog this morning.
Make a list of the things that you have to and get to it! Seeing the goals written down in front of you and watching them slowly (or quickly) get checked off will make you feel accomplished. I have a notebook that in which I write down my list for the week and additionally a list for that specific day. Helps me get through my week and my days. Try it.
