I don't know about you all, but I'll tell you that I've fallen way behind in this idea of restoring order! Survival is more our theme right now - but this week is pretty clear on the calendar and I'm anxious to get some things tidied up and organized around our home.
Things I want to accomplish are:
* Tupperware cabinet
* my nightstand area (yes, again)
* do something crafty
* clear the table and counters
* prepare food for David while we go out of town next week
What's on your list for the week?
Oh, and remember me mentioning the great shoe idea my mom had? When she was at our house, she noticed the girls taking their shoes off as soon as they came in the front door and leaving them there. I have a shoe bag on the back of their bedroom door, but it was such a challenge to actually get them to put their shoes there.
We found this basket unused in my laundry room (I recently removed it from the pantry to make room for my buckets of wheat) and moved it to the entry way. Now, I simply ask them to place their shoes in there when they take them off! We do keep the nice Sunday shoes in the shoe bag in their room still - this is for play shoes, sandals and tennis shoes.
We've had a few stray shoes - but overall this has been considerably more successful! Thanks for the great idea, Mom!
