Spent the morning in the laundry room, cleaning everything and reorganizing the cabinets.
Today I hope to hang the ironing board on the wall.
I also will clean the bathrooms before joining friends for dinner and a band tonight.

I got a call from a friend who said he was in town for a couple of days and could he stay with me... so I had to go to the market and stock up on good food so it looks like I eat well all the time. Grateful to have that kick in the fanny. : )

I took a huge load of clothes to the consignment shop today and sorted out the fridge and freezer to make room for our Costco haul.

Yesterday I did laundry, cleaned the master bath, sorted through some totes in the master bedroom, recycled a bunch of magazines.

I do that too!

The bins I ordered from the Container Store came in yesterday. So I got busy putting like with like and getting things onto the shelving.
This is huge as we recently downsized, and storage at the old place was totally different.

Everything is now organized, easily seen, and easily accessed.

Along with that, a lot of purging went on. I now have 5 empty 18 gallon Rubbermaid bins. I will hang onto those for a short time, then donate them if there is no longer a use for them.

So far this month I am doing really well on keeping things organized.
I make a list each night and sometimes post a note on the door going into my garage, so that I see it when I go out to my car or to the yard. this is working well for me.....ta da !!!!!

My guest room is a disaster since I dumped a lot of furniture in there, and the emptied the contents of drawers. So today, since I'm working from home, I will take a bundle down to the basement each commercial break.

Lately I've been re-organizing my house. I bought a piano which is huge and threw off the balance of the house. So I had to purge a lot of big pieces and move things around. Yesterday I completed the big purge items and this weekend I will clean and do little purges. Yay!

Today I did reorganize all my books and put them back on the shelves by topic. I have 2 big boxes of books to donate. tomorrow we leave for Asheville, NC for a weekend getaway. I'll just be tidying up and doing laundry to get ready for the trip.

Today, instead of doing what I planned on doing, I emptied out my pantry and reorganized the whole thing.
it looks fabulous, and it is now much more functional.

Yesterday I went through all my books. I took them all out of the bookcases and piled them on the floor. I sorted about 1/3 to give away. I might try selling some on Amazon, but I'll have to look into that. Today I will organize what's left and put them all back in the shelves.

Today I KonMari-ed my clothes. I took everything from the closet and dresser and piled it on the bed. I sorted each piece by what I loved and put it all back in a neat fashion. I have a huge tote and 2 Thirty-One totes for the consignment shop, 1 tote to take in the fall, a box and garbage bag for Goodwill and a garbage bag to toss. I did not use her folding method since I have a large closet to hang items and wire shelving that is not conducive to her style of folding. I don't feel like going out to buy a bunch of boxes/baskets just to file the clothes in. Maybe in the future when I want to spiffy it up.

Well - I blew it again and forgot to create the July thread. I'm writing a reminder on my calendar for August. I'll admit I am old and probably getting senile.......but
still try to keep organized.
So far in July the house is maintaining and I've done loads of yard work and it is looking good. I'm starting to get tomatoes on my 1 plant.....it is really tall for being in a pot, but
loads of flowers and 2 pretty large tomatoes so far (still very green).
-------------------
Today I broke the nose piece on my glasses - which I wear all the time and need to see.
So tomorrow I need to hunt for a place that can replace the plastic nose piece (thank goodness they are wire frames and not molded into the actual frame.)
