Today is an easy day. Yesterday was tough and you made it through – because obviously you are amazing!! Today, we are going to take it easy – we’ll plan for the next few days, and do some shopping – either right in our homes or out in the stores.
If you have anything left to finish, go ahead and do that now.
Pick up any mess your family has made in the last 24 hours. Run the vacuum in your clean new family room, straighten a pillow or two, or just stand back and admire how amazing it looks.
Next, why not reward yourself for your determination and do a little shopping?
Head to a Super Store, an office supply store or your favorite storage specialty store and have some fun. Buy a label maker.
These useful little things may seem a little Type-A but Type-A is good in your new, organized home.
Your plan is to stay organized, right?
The process of discretely labeling boxes and other containers can help you both remember what is in them, and make it easier and faster to replace that item properly.
You can also investigate nice storage tubs, pretty file folders and unique baskets. They do not have to be expensive to be effective. If you can afford it, buy a bunch; we have 25 more days of organizing to get to and a lot of rooms, drawers and shelves to organize.
**LINKS MENTIONED**These are the links I promised to the things that I bought to do my decluttering and organization over the next 24 days:
