the thought of all the things i have to organize makes me a bit stressed out. Working 9-6 every day doesn’t help either… So when I come home after working in front of a computer all day and all i want to do is collapse. I simply shove the never-ending stacks of paper and piles to sort through way off to the side and hop on the couch and veg-out in front of the tv or computer. So what to do? Where will this energy come from? The energy that will make my life much easier & simpler…. One idea is to make a master list of all the things I ever wanted to do to make things run smoother in my household & knock things out one by one at a reasonable pace. It’s just that initial push in the right direction and with systems in place things will run a lot smoother.
One of the hardest places for me to organize is my kitchen cabinets. When we first move into a *new* place, I immediately go to the kitchen (after cleaning it of course) and unpack all my beloved stuff. The husband finds all the electrical things and starts setting up his home theater…. So after ooohing and awwwing over my cute little dishwares & tiny soy sauce bowls that are in shape of flowers….I finish unpacking the entire kitchen. I live with it for a week and then immediately decide my problem areas and usually fix the most important ones right away. But then, other home stuff distracts me and I find myself 6 months into living in our new house NEEDING to really re-think my set up. I would say that 60% of my kitchen cabinets are used appropriately…but that 40% of cluttered mess hiding behind a one inch of slab of *wood* really bothers me. If I had all the time in the world, I would spend at least 2 days re-arranging everything in my kitchen and organizing my pantry. That would be the day… My goal this week is to start that list…and make a list for TARGET too!
