40 Days of Organization

And this is what Patrick thinks about this!

Well, it's officially summer in our house now.  That means a break from school, a trip to the beach, a trip to family camp in the mountains, swim team, a few summer camps and organizing for me.

I always try to get projects, deep cleaning and organizing done in the 10 weeks of summer that we have.  I have more time because we take a break from homeschooling (of course my kids still read good literature during the summer and do some math drills) but like I've said in previous summer posts, I need a break as much as they do!  So I'm posting my "40 days of organizing" list.  I'm doing this as much to keep me motivated and accountable as I am to help give y'all ideas too.  I figure that I have 8 weeks that I will be home so Mondays thru Fridays I can tackle one task or room.  So here's my list and please ladies, keep me going!

  1. This is awesome! Thanks for the inspiration! The first thing I need to do is make a list! It seems to be my biggest downfall in organization is not writing things down!

  2. I love this. Just what I needed - a list!!!



Thanks so much for your comments! I love them and they keep me writing. I really do read each one.
