52 Weeks: Recap Weeks 1-20
Since I have completed 20 weeks of the organizing challenge I thought it would be fun to do a recap of all my projects. I have to say it has been nice to get each area completed. For the most part I am organized but it was good for me to look at each area and to remove the clutter that had accumulated. I have enjoyed deciding each week what to work on and most weeks have completed more than one project. I like doing the challenge with others and seeing everyone’s progress each week.
Basement- I worked on 5 areas in my basement but there is way more left to do.
My Office- I still have to organize all my craft shelves but at least I tamed my magazines. I must say I have not gotten anymore lately and have been reading and purging them like crazy. I still have way too many and haven’t keep to myself imposed rule of purging 10 per week.
Kitchen- My biggest accomplishment so far has been my kitchen because I completely organized each area except for my chest freezer. I am trying to use up everything in it or enough to move whatever is left to my upright freezer in the basement so that I can defrost it.
Upstairs- I just started working on the upstairs of my house last week. My kids (DD22, DD19, DS18, and DS14 years) each have their own room so they are responsible for that, which makes it easy for me. Besides the game closet which I finished and vacuuming the hall I only have to monitor them so the whole upstairs area will be done this week. I will also do my bedroom on the main floor of the house this week since it would be an easy week for me otherwise.
What rooms are left to do: Upstairs 4 Bedrooms (this week), My Bedroom (this week), Bathroom, Laundry Room, Living Room, School Room, My Husbands Office, and unfinished areas in the other rooms.
