Who’s ready to get cray-cray and organize this hizzle?
You guys already know that I’m of the super-lame variety that gets VERY VERY EXCITED by things like plastic storage totes.
Organizing is my jam! (Isn’t that how the cool kids say it?)
The fun is happening during the seven weeks of Lent. Oh, and for the record, I did give up Diet Coke for Lent (*sad face*) but this is something extra I really want to do.
I’ve made half-hearted attempts to address some outgrown-clothing bin drama over the last week, but so far little progress has been made. I need this as a kick in the butt to MAKE time for the things that I want to do.
Yes, I’m insanely busy. Most of us are. But doing this will make me happy, and happy wife = happy life, right Darling Husband? (I’m sure he’s nodding vigorously)
Emily’s plan for the seven weeks is to tackle her toddler’s room, her baby’s room, her backyard, her garage, her basement, her master bedroom, and the main floor.
Here’s what I’m thinking for my house:
- Week 1: Master bedroom
- Week 2: Toddler’s room
- Week 3: Baby’s room
- Week 4: My home office
- Week 5: The rest of the basement (toy/family room, storage closet, utility room)
- Week 6: Main floor
- Week 7: All three bathrooms
I’m focusing on our master bedroom first because of the aforementioned problem with zillions of bins of outgrown/too-big kiddie clothing. I took out a bunch of boy-clothing bins to give to my lovely friend and next-door neighbour, B, and then somehow my closet got offended and threw up more clothes. Or something like that. The point is, it NEEDS to be done first, because it’s driving me bonkers.
I hope you join the fun along with us over at Imperfect
, because it’s going to be wild — drawer-organizing, trim-cleaning, storage-bin-packin’ wild!
