Organizing My Purse & Bathroom (this is embarrassing) + a giveaway!

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here.

I told you all that I’m using the Organize in 5 Diary in 2019 to whip my house in shape. It’s a digital download that gives you a 5-minute organizational project for every day in 2019.

Each of the projects (that can be done in 5 minutes or less) help you work through your entire home and set up better systems and habits. It covers almost all aspects of your life:

Psst! If you haven’t purchased the Organize in 5 Diary, you can get it for just $9 here.

I tackled two decluttering projects yesterday — one that was part of the Organize in 5 Diary and one that I was inspired to do because of the Organize in 5 Diary

Yikes! I’m embarrassed to show you this. But here’s some real-life for ya!

I see this every morning when I open the cupboard to pull out things to get ready in the morning and every night when I pull out things to wash my face and get ready for bed.

And every day, I think, “I really should make time to organize it.” And every day, it doesn’t happen.

Until yesterday.

I was supposed to go to the kids’ school for morning chapel and then to discipleship group at church, but school was delayed due to weather and discipleship group was cancelled due to weather.

So I got inspired and tackled this mess of a cupboard!

I pulled everything out, put things that didn’t belong where they needed to go, put some stuff in the Goodwill tub in the garage, threw some stuff out, and re-organized what remained.

SO much better! And it made me so happy to open up the cupboard last night and this morning and see the above.

I even brought Jesse into the bathroom to show him how amazing it looked. (Please tell me I’m not the only weird person who shows off their accomplishments to their spouse like that!!)

Next up, I tackled the Organize in 5 Diary upcoming project (I’m a little ahead on the projects right now!) to clean out my purse. Er, diaper bag.

But let’s pretend it’s a purse. (I almost always carry a big bag because I often am lugging my laptop in it, too! Well, and I may also be a Boy Scout type personality and go for the “Always Be Prepared” slogan in most of life, too.)

I dumped everything out, wiped out the inside of the purse, and went through the contents. I put the items away that didn’t belong, I threw out the items that were trash, and found a few surprises along the way (see below!)

And then I made sure I had all of the essentials and put everything back in in a much more organized fashion…

That feels so nice to have my purse re-organized. And maybe it will last for a few weeks — or longer! We’ll see! 🙂

Want to Win My $100+ Rite Aid Gift Card?

Giveaway is closed. The winner is Terra (frogger353@) Terra, check your inbox for an email from me!

I discovered a $100+ Rite Aid gift card in my purse that I had completely forgotten about (along with some great coupons that I can’t wait to use!). Rite Aid had sent it to me to make purchases for a post I did with them quite a long while ago.

The card still has $100+ on it and I’d love to gift it to one of you since Rite Aid is way out of the way for me to go to and I’d rather bless one of you with it!

To enter to win, just leave a comment on this post telling me what you’d spend it on. I’ll choose a winner on Monday and will send you the gift card!

I cleaned out my cookbooks and I’m giving two of my favorites away!

Today’s project for the Organize in 5 Diary was to clear out your cookbooks. While I don’t have a lot of cookbooks, it’s been a long time since I’ve gone through them.

So I set the timer for 5 minutes and pulled them all down and laid them out on the table…

There were a few loose recipes that I got rid of or added to my recipe box. And I looked briefly through each cookbook to decide whether I wanted to keep it.

I also went through this recipe box. It was full of so many special memories — so many of the recipes were handwritten down for me by friends and family before I got married almost 16 years ago. Everyone included their names on the recipes and it was a wonderful walk down memory lane to look the recipes.

There were a few printed out recipes I tossed out and some I had added to the box from various places that I decided to also toss since they didn’t look like ones I would ever make (I’m not even sure where all the various printed up recipes came from!) Of course I didn’t toss any of the handwritten recipe cards.

Here’s what I ended up keeping:

  • Chocolate Covered Katie — We use this one often and I love so many of the recipes in this cookbook!
  • Gifts From Your Kitchen — This one is a really special one to me because some of the really special occasion recipes we made growing up are in this one.
  • Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook — This is the one cookbook I think everyone should have in their kitchen!
  • Cooking Class — This is Kaitlynn’s cookbook.
  • Cookbook for Girls — This is Kaitlynn’s cookbook.
  • Various church cookbooks and recipe books that were self-published by people special to me

(Oh and if you’re wondering where all our mugs are — we had friends over for New Year’s Brunch yesterday and most all our mugs were used for tea and coffee and are in the dishwasher! :))

Want to Win 2 of My Cookbooks?

Giveaway is CLOSED. Winner is: Jo Medlin (jothomas3@)

I decided to give these two cookbooks away to one of you… they are cookbooks I love, but most of the recipes I regularly use in them I have memorized, have printed out, or can easily pull up online. I figured it’s time to pass them onto one of you!

Would you like to win a copy of Eat at Home Tonight and Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook? Just leave a comment on this post and I’ll choose one winner on Friday and send them out to you.

(By the way, if you know you will only use one of the cookbooks, please mention that in the comment and if you’re chosen, I’ll send you that cookbook and will choose another winner to send the other cookbook, too.)
