Judy, good for you---and great that you found a system that works for you.
I finished that book---and got laundry all caught up and the dishwasher loaded so all I have to do this morning is start it after I put in the breakfast items.

The day has ended & this is what I accomplished:

1. Cleaned entire refrigerator out
2. Cleaned out plus reorganized night stand 2 drawers
3. Reorganized my jewelry
4.Reorganized food closet
5. Went for groceries
6. did a load of wash


Here is a helpful tip in my bedroom night stand I put 2 plastic containers that one will hold my cards & the other my writing paper. That way they are not scattered in the drawers.

Another helpful tip; I used clear plastic containers one holds all my soups so I know what is in the closet as my brother lives with us & he likes certain canned soups this way he can just pull the container out & see all of them ( nothing is hidden behind each other.) then I put seasonings in the other one , plus I now keep my potatoes in the one.

Plus I went to church & on a 3 mile walk

I got the dishes done, can find the dining room table, and picked up a few things in the livingroom.
OH, cleaning where an old stove was will not be fun---hope it is not too bad.

Going through my storage containers that I keep in the stove drawer as I get a new stove today - so that also means cleaning when the old stove comes out.

I'm so on and off tired lately. Stupid SAD! I have more energy in the mornings so that's when most stuff gets done. I vacuumed the whole house today and cleaned. Except my Mom's office, she wanted to do it herself, which is fine because I don't really go in there nor have to see it.

Just nice to be in a clean place.

Glad to see you all have been busy. Been too busy to get anything done at home this week---spent too much time at the doctor's office yesterday but hoping the meds help me do stuff this weekend. I did get my new desk at school and it is all organized now---no nice to have a brand new desk and drawers that actually open.

Congrats Tri-Babe and WTG Marpet44! Jude, I'm so glad you came on here. It makes me feel less alone too although I'm sorry we have that in common.

My project is still the kitchen table. I think there is still several hours of work on it but I think I'll be able to clear it off tomorrow. I just will have a serious mail and ToDo pile I'll need to go through afterwards!

I DID MY WORKOUT CLOTHES!! Wanted to prove to myself I could take back some of what I recently bought, but no, I actually need a couple more capri type running pants. I find I get colder now that I lost weight/fat.

I didn't go through the ones I have in storage for spring/summer though. I figure I'll be pulling those out soon enough so will do them at that point. No sense bringing them out and putting them back again, as I am still losing weight anyway.

I want to go through my many "to-do" lists I put together while not feeling well and concatenate them down into one, and organize some other paperwork on my desk.

Hi. My name is Jude and I am new here. I am extremely disorganized and my kitchen sounds like STICKI's. My kitchen table is completely cluttered and I never eat there! I finally cleared much of my kitchen counters and am keeping it up. Baby steps! I am so happy to find out that I'm not alone!

Taxes are done but not state taxes. I don't want to move onto them until I get the last tax form I need in to do Federal. State taxes shouldn't be so bad, since I've technically only lived here like 6 weeks in 2013.

Did not do workout clothes. Am feeling better so I hope to do that tomorrow.

I love to cook and I love to read cookbooks! Lately I've been cooking simply - kind of Paleo. Once my kitchen is more organized and countertops cleared I look forward to more fancy cooking.

Today's project is clearing the kitchen table. It's become red alert urgent as not all of us can eat at the table at the same time as it's so cluttered. We have to eat in shifts or half of us stand up. Crazy it's come to that...

I still need to do the life plan... library books... workout clothes... I also went to a book sale yesterday and picked up a lot of cookbooks. Need to find some methodology for using the cookbooks. Maybe it's like the one they use for clothes. If you've not made a recipe from that cookbook in 6mos or a year, it should be donated.

One of my minor goals is to cook more. I don't eat a restaurants but a lot of times make cereal or something easy. We have a bookshelf for all the cookbooks and I'm thinking I could use the cookbooks in a rotational manner. Starting at the top left, making a recipe from that book, and working my way across and down each time I cook. That would add variety and make sure they are all being used. If I can't find a recipe that looks appealing from the book, it gets donated. I got them all at resale or thrift stores (well, many of them are my Mom's too) so no big loss if they are donated.

Edited to add: The above method for cookbooks UNLESS I feel like a certain type of food. For example I got a book yesterday for healthy soul food, and also have one for smoothies, another for crepes, and so on.

LOL, that might have to happen when you find a job you like.
I am trying to be good---I did a load of laundry and worked on my dining room table---just a few more things to decide what to do with them---going to go dry the clothes I washed, change into pjs so I can wash another load---want to wash my bra I have on---then empty my dishwasher and maybe sweep the floors----I want to go shopping for some sweaters on clearance---it has been so cold at work and I need a nice black sweater and I need something green---our school color---so hoping I can find something in a green I like.
