Ok, so yet another organizing post. I am starting to attempt to do my version of spring cleaning, even though Spring isn't officially here yet. With trash day tomorrow, I decided I would be good and clean out the fridge. I really need to get a system for storing leftovers, reminding myself what I have in the fridge and what needs to be used when. I couldn't believe what I threw out. Here I am trying to be money conscious, a little green, less wasteful, etc, and here I was throwing out all sorts of food that had gone bad because I had forgotten about it, or because I wasn't really sure if it was bad, but I didn't want to take the chance. My older son is going to pre-school in a couple of weeks, and I want to keep all of the paperwork I need somewhere safe. I want to have toys put away yet accessible for me to get for the kids. I have started putting some things in bins, but I think I need to be better at organizing the toys and only allowing certain things out at a time. I think I need to get more bins, shelving, space so that I can have a place to put eveything. I want to have their art stuff accessible so that we can do projects without trying to find the supplies. I want to have their favorite toys all together so they can easily play with them. I want to have a living room where I can feel comfortable having people over no matter when they may pop in. I want my kitchen to look clean and pretty, like other people's kitchens instead of cluttered and crazy.
Right now, I have a bunch of things that I want to work on, but I need to remind myself, babysteps. It didn't go crazy over night and it won't be fixed over night. I just have to take baby steps each day and maintain what I have already completed.
I would love my own desk, but I have no idea where I would put it. Maybe in the spare room that is just being piled with toys and clean laundry right now? I really need to utilize my space better. I kind of have a plan and I just need to follow it.
