Making Life a Little Less Cluttered: Week 3

My motivation to work on my decluttering projects TOTALLY waned this week. I had to really push myself to get anything beyond "the usual" (i.e. laundry, dishes, trash, bathrooms, animals, vacuuming, sweeping, mopping...) done and hit those Fly Lady "hot spots"!

But I DID tackle some of those "dumping grounds" this week. It took MUCH longer than the 2 minutes Fly Lady suggests though. ((wink))

"Hot Spots" Put Out
A Repurposed Microwave Stand for My Bedside Stuff
On and Around My Rocking Chair
Re-bagged Donations (Since the Kids Got into Them)
Foyer Closet and Shoe Mats By Door
Purged and Organized Curriculum

SOME of the curriculum on the way
out! Feeling SO much better with
less on the shelves because I  saved
the books that are most useful.

Honey To Do List Completed
New Programmable Thermostat Installed
New Computer Router Installed
Fundraising Cookies Made
Refitted the Kid's Bathroom Toilet


  1. I love to see clutter "undone". Keep going, Friend!

  2. It is amazing to me how the curriculum grows, isn't it? I have a bad habit of buying more than I'm ever going to need (because it was cheap at a garage sale and looked interesting at the time...) but I find that we always end up going back to our core set of books. Good job at cleaning it out!

    1. Isn't that the truth! We've gotten a lot of stuff from a lot of place for free or very cheap, but the simple fact is that most of it we'll never use and I just don't have the shelf space for it.

  3. I am a huge Flylady fan. I did not know she has started a video series. That is great. Thanks for sharing your progress!

  4. Great work on clearing out more clutter and great work on being picked one of 100 Best Homeschooling blogs :) Way to go!!

  5. Congratulations! It's so hard to do

  6. Looking at your curriculum out - Alyssa is doing the complete united states history one this year. I like it!!

  7. OH! I love the Fly lady!! I try hard to keep up with her, but this week is a wash. Well, not literally, as my washer is broken and the pile is growing. ARGH!!!
    Thanks for your visit today. I'm looking forward to getting to know you. :)

  8. Forget the hot spots, I want to learn how my house will practically clean itself!
