Oh and guess what, I didn't spend any money on new organizational items. I simply made due with what I already had- even if I really wanted to go buy stuff to organize the kids' art stuff that found a new, easier access spot.
I can now breathe easy that my house has been thoroughly cleaned in time for this baby (assuming I can keep up on the regular cleaning). And let me just add it's a good thing I did it so early on, because the 3rd trimester exhaustion has set in. I was hard pressed to do as much of the bending, lifting, and stretching in my current state of roundness and I can only imagine how a few more inches would've affected my pace.
Here are a few of my favorite new spots:
|I unloaded a LOT of books- mainly cookbooks. I am still too full for these bookshelves, but this is a major improvement and I now have a good spot for all the preschool games and my sewing machine (bottom shelf, far left).|
|I know it looks like a mess, but art supplies aren't always easy to organize and believe it or not, everything is easy to find, use, and put back. Plus I have a good spot for the kid puzzles now!|
Check back next week to get a sneak peak at my plans for Freezer cooking next month.
Do you want to get in on the Friday Focus action? Let's all get focused and motivate each other. Tell us about it or post a link to your blog post in the comment section (don't forget to link back here so others can join in the fun too). The best part is that your focus doesn't have to be a long term thing like many of my focuses. It can be anything from setting and conquering any size goals, to what you've been thinking about recently, to look what I did- aren't I so great?
