The Organizing Journey Day 4
Day 4 – Cleaning is Not Organizing
Finished my weed-eating and other outdoor chores so trying to finish my 24 ounces of water then I’ll do the dishes.
I was able to clear away most of the “stuff” in the kitchen. I wouldn’t say the kitchen is ORGANIZED yet, but at least it’s visually clutter free.
So here are before and after photos.
Before is when I was working like crazy then travelling (so two weeks’ worth of mail and Amazon deliveries) then had a daughter leave a bunch of stuff along with my accumulation of stuff (don’t judge me… ha ha ha!).
After is merely after picking stuff up and either throwing it away, relocating it out of the kitchen area, or putting it away properly in the kitchen (as well as doing dishes and taking out the recycling).
I look forward to actually organizing, but in the meantime it’s nice to have two rooms that are at least clean.
You may be wondering why someone who says they are SOOOO short on time bothers with blogging about things. Good question. For me, it’s a way of staying on track. A sort of accountability factor. For all I know, no one is reading my blog…. Or hundreds are reading my blog. I don’t know. But I feel like so long as I pretend someone is reading it, I feel obligated to actually follow through with my project. And blogging is the record-keeping for that follow-through.
So tomorrow, the living room (in my spare time... now that my metals have arrived for a big custom order, that takes priority).
