Making Life a Little Easier: Home Projects Week 2

What did I accomplish for extra projects in Week 2? Well, it was a hard, hard week to work on additional projects around the house. We were QUITE busy with homeschool and activities pretty much every day so time (and my energy level) were taken elsewhere. But I eliminated several Flylady-described "hot spots" (i.e. "dumping grounds" for anything and everything).

Home Projects Completed this Week
Decluttered and Organized the Cookbook/Telephone Book Cupboard - Removed/Donated MANY UNUSED Cookbooks
Decluttered the Top of the Microwave - WE CAN FINALLY SEE THE TOP!
Discarded Expired Medications and Stocked First Aid Kit
Organized Bathroom Shelves and Medicine Cabinet

Before - Paperwork/Cookbook/Telephone
Books Cupboard. No Before of Wicker
Basket and Plastic Container on Microwave
After! Telephone Books on Top Shelf,
Cookbooks on Middle Shelf, and Paperwork
on Bottom Shelf. NOTHING on Microwave!

Honey To Do List (i.e. Blue Spruce)
Weed Out Bookcase and Pile of Books on Rocking Chair
Bring ALL the Bulk Rubbish to the Transfer Station
Repaint the Front Door
Refit the Toilet Insides (Kid's Bathroom)
Get the Electronics and Books Out of the Sunroom

Productive week, wouldn't you say?


  1. Great job! Wish I had you motivation! Enjoy your Sunday.

  2. Very productive. Congratulations!

  3. Thanks for following me. Returning the favor. Cute site.


  4. Wow! I'm impressed! Great job! :-)

  5. HURRAY for decluttering and organizing! I'm still on my spree as well!!

  6. Looks like a great week! And what a great idea to post it! I may have to steal that idea!

  7. Yeah for getting projects done! Hugs and have a great week!!! :O)

  8. I would say that's pretty darn productive! Love your before and after picture. Amazing what a little decluttering can do. I like the idea of eliminating hotspots. My uncle always said that if you could make all surfaces in the house at a 45 degree angle, nothing would ever collect on the top. ;)

  9. Wow! You did get a lot done! I have been streamlining my cookbook collection, because it seems I usually use the the internet for recipes now.
