4 Weeks to a More Organized Home: Assignment #1 Results

If you missed Assignment #1 for the 4 Weeks to a More Organized Home Challenge, be sure to read the details here.

So, how’d your day go? Here’s a recap of some of what I got accomplished:

I got up early, read my Bible, ran two miles, followed my morning routine, and got dressed — including makeup, hair, earrings, and even some perfume (which is something I rarely ever wear.).

No, my outfit was nothing to be too excited about, but then, I’m a pretty simple gal when it comes to clothes. In fact, what you see here is my basic standard “uniform” that I wear every day.

After our morning & afternoon homeschooling was finished and the chores were done, Silas went down for his afternoon nap, the girls went outside in the backyard to play, and I sat down to make my list of goals for the week.

{Roxaboxen was one of our read-alouds today for school. Guess what the children did during their afternoon play time? Yep, they spent it trying to build houses for themselves in the backyard!}

And then it was time to tackle my purse. Some of you may have expected that minimalist me would have a teeny-tiny purse.

Well, I actually have a clunker purse. It doubles as a tote bag and sometimes holds diapers, extra kid clothes, books, knitting stuff–or even my laptop. It just seems more practical to stick with a big bag right now since it can multi-task when needed.

But the problem with a big bag is that it can also hold more junk and unnecessary stuff. Gulp.

I pared all the stuff that was currently in there down to this and threw the rest of the stuff out or returned it to its proper place.

Much better!

And finally, I came up with seven items around our home to get rid of: three vases, some smell reducer thing that I have no idea where it even came from, two shirts that are worn out, and two books. All of the items are going into the garage sale pile except the Unshaken book which I’m passing along to reader, Cassi!

    Just came to your website from Karen Ehman’s Blog where you posted Get your house company ready in two hours. I am really excited to find your website and this new study. I am really excited about trying to find 7 items to purge. I think this will help declutter and organize. I look forward to this entire study!!!
