4 Weeks to a More Organized Home: Day 1

I have decided to follow along with Money Saving Mom on her 4 Weeks to a More Organized Home series, starting today. I have been feeling like we have way too much stuff and this will be the perfect opportunity to declutter and NOT be overwhelmed.

Each day, she lists assignments that will help you to organize your home and not be overwhelmed.
Today's assignments were:

  • Get dressed in something that makes you feel great
  • Sit down with a cup of coffee or tea and make a list of 5-10 goals for this week.
  • Complete your morning routine {if you don’t have a morning routine, take some time to create one today! Read my How to Develop a Routine That Works–And Stick With It series for step-by-step help.}
  • quickly pick up the main living areas of your home.
  • Clean out your purse and/or diaper bag.
  • Find 7 items to get rid of today. Throw them out, stick them in a donate or garage sale box, give them to a friend who can use them, or list them on Craigslist or eBay.

So, how did I do??
I got dressed in a pair of jeans and a green sweater. I did put on a necklace to help me feel a little more put together.
I made a list of goals for the week. 
I have not made a morning routine...but am thinking about it.
I quickly picked up the main areas of the house.
I cleaned out my purse.....

And I found 25 ITEMS to get rid of....I put 22 cups and 3 bowls in a bag to give to Goodwill. 

So I think day 1 went really well....Hopefully I can continue the momentum as the days go on! 


  1. 25!! Wow; you are on a roll! Good work!

  2. My goodness, you got rid of a bunch of things as well. Way to go-- I'm envious!

    1. Thanks Jenny! That was out of 3 kitchen cabinets. We have accumulated way to much stuff. Time to clear it out.
