I’ve been feeling kind of “blah” yesterday and this morning. Thankfully, the beautiful weather has upped my spirits!
As you may know, I do call-ins for work, so I don’t always know if I’m working or not. I was really stressing about this today because it’s hard for me to get anything done if I don’t know if and when I’m going into work.
But I got a lucky day off, so I’ve been checking off some of my Organization Challenge tasks.
I’ve been meaning to clean my car out for ages. I used to clean my car all the time, even when it didn’t need to be cleaned. And typically I don’t leave much of mess in my car. That has not been the case lately.
Junk I cleaned out of my car…
The picture doesn’t make it look like a lot, but it was. Plus, actual TRASH hanging out in my car is so gross to me. (Notice Beans’ sneaky paw in the pic). But that’s all taken care of. There’s nothing better than a clutter-free cleaned out car to me!
Since I’m in an organizing mood, I decided to go through all my bathroom products & organize under my bathroom sink. This wasn’t something on my list of goals for the challenge, but I’ve been meaning to do it for a while.
Nothing horrendous, but lately I’ve just been stuffing random stuff under there. The funniest/oldest thing I found was this:
No, I don’t have dentures. These were to clean my retainers that I probably haven’t worn in a year and a half. Yeah… time to throw these out!
Beans of course wanted in on the organizing fun.
But not really. He really just wanted me to play fetch with him the whole time and kept walking awkwardly around all the scattered products. I can’t get over his little bewildered look in that pic. Oh, Beans.
Anyway, the end result?
I got rid of all this…
And now under my sink looks like this…
Not bad! It feels good to take some small steps in organization. Last week, I mentioned that I just wasn’t motivated. I heard this from a lot of challenge participants too. Hopefully this gives you a little motivation, and if not, I hope there’s springy weather that helps your desire to clean settle in.
Now I’m off to take Beans on a walk and enjoy the awesome weather!
Questions for You:
- Challenge peeps, how have your goals been going? If you haven’t done anything yet, what would motivate you to get started?
- Do you hang onto really old products with the intention of using them someday but NEVER do? I had a seriously hard time getting rid of something because I was sure I would use it again. Yeah, right!
