We moved in to our new house in November and having lived here nearly 5 months, I finally am starting to get a feel for the place and "how" we use each room (or want to use each space). Now it is time to get our systems in place and find homes from some of the "stuff" that is sitting in the garage and front room.
Laura created a great checklist form to help me put my projects down on paper. I am a big fan of lists (thanks mom) and love to check things off so this is totally up my alley. Of course, I also know, putting it out there for the world to see is motivating...so here is my first 10 projects - no particular order.
Project #1: DonateYard sale is over and now it is time to donate the remaining items. Okay, a couple of them will go on craigslist, but the rest needs to go. I will be loading up my car and heading over to a couple of our favorite charities next week.
Project #2: Financial Papers
Project #3: Decor Items
Project #4: Organize the Swimming Pool Stuff
With the weather warming up and swim season right around the corner, it is imperative that we get our swim gear in order. I need to verify what we have/need for suits, towels, toys, chemicals, etc. We also need to sit down and create some pool rules since this is our first year owning a house with a pool. We need to make sure our kids understand the responsibility of being by the pool and have guidelines in place for when we have friends over. This is a big project but one that we are very excited about. We put the solar blanket ont he pool today so I am sure we will be swimming sooner than later as the Arizona sun is toasty warm these days.
Project #5: Organize the Cupboards between the Pantry and Fridge
Project #6: Master Bathroom
Project #7: Command CenterThe goal is to create a command center for our family where we keep our master calendar, important papers, a place to drop our keys and more.
Project #8: Photo ManagementI need to spend a day or two organizing all my digital photos, deleting the bad ones and then getting them ALL backed up (before I have a computer failure and lose them all).
Project #9: Scrapbooking SuppliesThese are sort of all over the place. I need to get them all together so I can sort through them and get a plan to set up our new office/craft room.
Project #10: The Office
Hang on, this is going to be a wild ride!
