Earlier this week I had the following To-Dos and I know I need to update my progress.
Open, sort, file or shred all the incoming mail and loose paper in our home office.Everything is filed, organized and in its place.
- Think of creative and free solutions to making our home office more usable. Currently, I have a desk, an assortment of filing items, a printer and a bookcase. I want to be able to keep the current bills in one area where the mister can just open up and see what’s due. Still working on this one. I went to Pier 1 (have a $50 GC to use), Target and Ross but still can’t find something cheap, durable and appealing to the eye.
I also need to figure out a way to sort our mail that comes in or that needs to leave. All for free with items that I already have in the house. I have some trays from the Container Store that I am trying out as an in box. We’ll see how well the trays work out.
- Firm up our February budget and blog about it. Will post this up later tonight.
Purge my closet and either list things on eBay, donate or throw away items I haven’t worn in the last 6 months. Talk to the neighbors about the possibility of having a community garage sale in March or April when the weather might cooperate.Neighbors want to do a garage sale in the summer time, so for now I have stuff sitting in the garage waiting to be sold.
Progress isn’t going as well as I thought. Opening and filing my mail was a chore and it took a lot of self talk to get started on that project! I’m hoping that by the end of this week I can finish up the remaining items.
