4 Weeks to a More Organized Home: Assignment #9 (update)

4 Weeks to a More Organized Home

I’m so excited about how many of you are joining us for the 4 Weeks to a More Organized Home Challenge! If you missed today’s assignment, you can find it here.

It was a great day yesterday! I had a wonderful time doing two broadcast tapings at Focus on the Family with a live audience (these will likely air in May and June). Plus, I loved getting to meet some of my wonderful readers at the meet & greet afterwards!

I flew out from Colorado Springs to Bloomington, IL to speak at the Hearts at Home conference today and tomorrow. I’m so excited to get more readers today (if you’re going to be at Hearts at Home, please stop by our booth after one of my sessions and say “hi!” — I would LOVE to meet you!)

I worked ahead on the 4 Weeks to a More Organized Home challenge earlier this week and here are pictures of yesterday’s assigned projects…

We cleaned the light switch plates — and it was quite an easy and fun task (yay!)

I just had to show you this calendar — it’s a family calendar that my family gave us for Christmas with pictures for each month from my extended family. I LOVE it (you can see a peek of my entire family above at my sister’s Senior Recital — all 7 siblings and our parents!)

Pardon the banged up walls, but I also wanted to show you this quote above the light switch in our bedroom closet — I printed it out from Ann Voskamp’s blog a long time ago and it serves as a constant reminder to me.

And here are some more items we found in the school shelf clean-out that we’re getting rid of.

How you do on Assignment #9? I’d love to have you share your progress and success with us so we can be inspired. Either post a link to your blog post below or leave a comment with your update.

  • Wiping light switches was a job my kids loved (and took over from me!). I actually scrubbed the grout in my bathroom yesterday because I had the time in my 15 minutes. I’m pretty sure I’ve never scrubbed that grout before. Yay for another challenge done!

  • Thank you, Crystal! I loved cleaning up the keyboard in our home, and even had time to change the bezel out on my laptop! Much needed projects! Thank you for all the time you put into making our lives better!

  • Lisa says:

    This was a great task for my boys! And since we had just cleaned the bathrooms the day before, I mopped the kitchen as the boys did their job!

  • Emily says:

    We are going to start today! Since we have recently done some of the chores from the past days, it should be easy to catch up! Thanks for the motivation!

  • Gwen says:

    I am not blogging about this, but loving the challenge. I pitched an entire paper bag from my underwear drawer! Some undies were old as my youngest, he just tuned 11! out they went, now only things I love remain.

  • Bethany says:

    We are getting ready to move so I am trying to sort things as I pack so that I don’t bring the excess unnecessary stuff. Sure has slowed the packing process but I am glad I am doing it this way.
