Pure Organization 2010: Project #1

 

So I had an idea for 2010.  As I mentioned before, this year we’re really going to focus on getting our house organized.  We’ve hit most of the major eyesores in our 70s split, but open up almost any closet or drawer, and you’ll see a mini trainwreck.  Not good.
In our old house,we tackled every nook & cranny and it seemed that as soon as we’d gotten everything perfect, we moved.  And I don’t want that to happen again.  SO this year, we’re going after our closets, our drawers, our fridge, our laundry room, our pantry- one space at a time-  And I’m inviting you to come along!

Each week we’re going to do a little job or tackle a project—  most of them are small EASY steps we can take to make our life more organized and run a bit more smoothly— and you’re welcome to join me.  It’s sort of my way of holding myself accountable.  If I tell you I’m going to do a little job each week, then I’ll do it.  So if you’re anything like me & want a friend to hold you accountable, join me!!  [image below from here]

Every Monday, I’ll list a new task or project we’re working on.  On the following Monday, when I list the new “to do” job, I’ll also show readers’ photos -THE PROOF!- of the completed project from the week before & ask for feedback from anyone who joined in.   (I’d love for you to send me photos of  your completed project & I’m even thinking of figuring out the Mr.Linky gadget for those of you with blogs who’d want to link up. )  (Some projects we’re doing are pretty to look at whereas others- as you’ll see- are more functional than pretty.  So maybe we’ll just do pics of the pretty ones??  I’m up for ideas! 🙂

Some of the things we tackle will be things you’ve aleady done & other things we do might not appeal or apply to you, but if any of the projects are ones you’re interested in, then join us! 🙂  I think it’ll be helpful & a lot more fun if we do this together!  (And to clarify:  in most cases I’m really not talking big projects.  I’m talking about those little jobs we’ve been putting off.  The things that make life easier &/or prettier but don’t take much effort. ) [image below from martha stewart.]

Now, for PROJECT #1:  Fill mason jars with paint for touch-ups, label them, and store them in the room where they’re needed with a small paint brush. 

Paint scratches, walls get scuffed, and it’s SO EASY to do touch-ups when the paint is accesible.  It only takes 5 minutes!  The big hassle is finding the paint & getting out the can & the brush and taking it to the right room.  Eliminate the hassle, and it’s really no big deal.  Today I did Project #1 and it only took 15 minutes- most of it spent cleaning out out old jelly from the jar.   I also attached the paint brush with a ribbon so it will always be with the paint.

I hope some of you will join me on a few of these projects, and just think how much more organized & beautiful our homes will be after 50 weeks of baby steps!

Anyone game???
xoxo,
lauren

When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!

While social poker apps are a popular subcategory in the app store (think Zynga Poker), on this page we focus on the best downloadable poker apps that let you play both free and real money online poker. The World’s Leading Poker Game! Thanks to its streamlined software Appeak Poker offers one of the fastest online poker experiences available on mobile platforms. Allowing you to get in and get playing in record time. Appeak Poker also scales well to many devices with different screen sizes. The cards look good and it’s easy to see how much is in the pot at all times, along with all the card suits and values. You won’t see the flashy gimmicks of Zynga Poker but that’s not a bad thing. The focus here is poker and it shows.  1. Signup and receive your free bonus: Yes, when you first register and signup on realpoker.in, you also get a free signup bonus. This is intended towards the Indian category of players, who are mostly first-time players of Poker. We understand that the Poker industry and popularity of the game in India is witnessing a recent rise. So, although more and more players are trying to learn and play online Poker, yet they are sometimes de-motivated when they lose some bucks in the initial few games. We understand that it would require a demo game or a free game for the first one or two games that you play, so we present signup bonus money to all new Indian Poker players. https://www.comparingviews.com/community/profile/clintonx0962856/ I’ve playing blackjack on computerized tables at real casinos, they’re better than dealing with a living dealer in my opinion. It is clear to me that the dealer has better odds of winning than the player. The odds aren’t astronomically out of proportion, however it is noticeable and annoying.You get dealt a 19, and the dealer only has 5 showing. The dealer manages to hit 20 way too frequently, and it can be rather obnoxious. I was given free in game money to write this review. Heads-up was reached when former professional soccer player Mario Mosboeck fell by the wayside. Mosboeck shoved for 2,001,336 with jack-ten of hearts after Silva had min-raised to 280,000 with ace-king. An unnecessary king on the river sealed the deal for Silva. Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
