House

Well I got a little behind, but then caught up again! The January Cure has created the most productive me that’s ever happened in January. Generally this is the month I decompress from holidays (oh retail, you’ve nearly ruined me). But not this time! I’m getting things done. And flowers every weekend is my new favorite.

sunday

So far I’ve:

  • Made a list of house projects: here.
  • Put together a clutter collector (and boy did we need one!)
  • Purged the pantry! Which in turn helped me realize what all is in there, which led to an awesome lentil soup.
  • Meditated on a room. I chose the bedroom because my goal is to have it be the most serene place in the house.
  • Picked a project: Clean out those closets! Starting with the bedroom of course. Those old clothes and things need to go.
  • A kitchen once-over.
  • Got started on my project, bedroom closet clean out.
  • Drawer Declutter. One at a time, I’ll tackle them all!
  • The 3 minute surface sweep. Hopefully I can make this one a nightly habit (at least weekly!).
  • The bathroom cabinet cleanout.
  • Set up a landing strip for keys, etc.

Still to do:

  • Get together a get-together. Working on something for February!
  • The bedroom blast. My nightstand needs some serious work.
  • Media Fast (I keep trying…)
  • This weekend’s project: Living room love!

Something about January makes me feel all crafty (and I am never crafty!). I’ve been looking into something to add a little more life to our walls. Here’s a few amazing project ideas I stumbled across. Click through each of the photos for tutorials!
