This week the boys I watch are on vacation and I have big plans to clean and organize. Katy posted about her basket and it inspired me to get mine organized. Oh, how I wish I would have taken a before picture!
It seems that this area goes from neat to mess in a blink of an eye. I noticed that Katy had all of her things standing up. Genius! Part of my problem was digging through the basket for things. Another thing that she did was use a pencil box. I normally had a pen or pencil stuck into the spiral of my notebook. This was fine except Eli (23 mos) would sometimes take it out. That is a disaster waiting to happen!
I like to see what other people have so I thought I would share what is in my basket. Next to my basket is my coupon organizer. Inside I have my Bible and Chucks. Along with my homekeeping binder and a Bible Study. I am getting ready to start an online study of Colossians as part of Good Morning Girls. I am going to take part in a group with Monica at The Homespun Heart. She was looking for a group of about 10 ladies to join. As of mid morning she and I were the only ones. If you are interested in joining us, please, go visit Monica and shoot her an e-mail.
Anyway, I am currently reading Americas Cheapest Family. I have a small notepad and then my spiral notebook.
In the back I have some magazines that I need to look through. I wanted to see if there are any recipes I want to clip.
I also worked on Megan's room today. This is after a whirlwind weekend. She loves boxes and as soon as one arrives she claims it. Sometimes I wonder why we have toys! lol
I threw out a bag of trash. Is it just my daughter that can never part with a piece of paper? Along with two boxes of things to give away.
Ahhh, much better! Tomorrow I am going to run a couple of errands in the morning and then I will tackle my room and the bathroom. I don't know about you, but I enjoy cleaning and organizing. It is a wonderful feeling to go back into that space and see how neat and tidy everything is. Maybe I am weird.
May your day be filled with joy and contentment.
