  1. Oh my, if I made a list of everything in my house that needs order…it would be a mile long! Good luck with your challenge…I’ll be back to see what you’re up to!
    Blessings,

  2. I’m excited to follow your 31 days. I have spent much of this year de-cluttering my home after my youngest graduated from college and moved on. This included updating her bedroom and bath, emptying every closet in order to re-carpet the bedrooms, going through office supplies, craft supplies, clothes and shoes, need I go on? Consequently we then spent a month getting ready for a massive yard sale, selling on Craigslist and then donating ALMOST everything last weekend after the yard sale. It feels so incredible to open closets now and see some blank spaces, nothing falls on my head, and I can find the shoes I want to wear without saying a bad word. It is so freeing to have the hidden areas of my house in order, finally, after raising 7 kids and never enough space. We are retiring next year and this was our first step towards downsizing. Go for it and you will be so happy and feel so free. My motto was SIMPLIFY SIMPLIFY SIMPLIFY. Now I will be able to devote some time to those unfinished or fun new projects that I’ve put off for so long. My first little reward was making a fall arrangement to hang by my front door after work yesterday and being able to find the supplies and whip it together in no time. Looking forward to your posts!

    1. WOW, Dianne you have been busy…sounds like I could certainly learn from you! Please continue to share in the comments sections so you can inspire others! ~Sonya

  3. I am just glad to see that others also have long lists of things that could, should and may be will one day be taken care of. I think Fall and Winter are good times to take care of what is not organized as it should be, before winter is over and Spring Cleaning and yard work starts.

    I am so curious what it is that you start out with, and I will try to go along as best as
    I can, I always feel something will side track me, a new project, a new idea, work
    whatever there seems to always be something.
    Good Luck I will try to keep with your pace

  10. Yes, we all have our personal projects in brings our home to order for sure, but been quite lazy with it, I got a mess at my room, don’t find the inclination to get things into order. Point is if I do it, anyway it will get messy again(: anyway…I guess it is about planning, make provisions to keep things here and there, must do smart renovation not just keeping room neat, it is renovation of sorts.
