We just moved here in July. I have decluttered my kitchen utensil drawer and went through all my holiday decorations and donated what I know I won't use. As I use them I will see what I have room for and may be donating more.

I got the kids out on time for the first day of school, all my kitchen countertops cleared, scrubbed and polished, budget set up for Sept and bills paid. My desk still needs some attention - I worked on it over the weekend but had a load of mail/bills to deal with so it's messy again.

Whew - very hot and HUMID here in San Diego and we usually don't have this much humidity. So it feels worse.
On the positive side with the heat and humidity..... I'm not eating much and drinking LOADS of water.

Trying to get all my ducks in a row before leaving for vacation on Tuesday.
We get back at the holiday weekend, so any bills, etc that need done by then need to get done before we leave.

I'm kind of out of commission with a bad back, but I did manage to get some paperwork taken care of and my desk a little neater. My email inbox got a good clearing out as well.

Went through the whole (small) house last night... room by room top to bottom, and put things away, put them in the basement or attic, or threw away. Trying to keep only what I like or need. I have not yet ventured INTO drawers or cupboards yet... one step at a time. : )

Well, it's Monday... laundry day.
Everything will be washed, dried, folded/hung, and put away.

I need to enter receipts into Quicken then file them away.
I need to transfer some funds between accounts and pay some bills.

I cleaned under my kitchen sink yesterday. Threw away old disgusting things and sorted/organized what was left. It was surprisingly satisfying!

WOW I can't believe that I have kept up with organizing my house and yard !!!
It has been really really hot here (still) and no AC at my house........ but
I'm still doing it.
Keeping the clutter under control and not leaving things laying around really helps me.
(sometimes I have to talk myself into it - but it is working.)
WAHOO!!!!!

I like making to-do lists and usually follow through and get things done. I like crossing things off it too.

LUANN - I LOVE your idea of a ta-da list! So inspiring! I just might make that part of my planner. What a way to end the week.

Actually, a to-do list does not help me.
I know what needs to be done.
And I can get overwhelmed to see every task written out on a long list (and disappointed at seeing too few crossed off at the end of the day).

What works for me is a ta-da list :)
In my daily calendar, I write down the accomplished tasks.
Makes me smile to look back on the week and see all that I actually got done!

New month - fresh start to get organized....
Does it help you to make a to-do list for getting organized?

It helps me - but I need to print out the list and put it on the fridge or kitchen counter.
