Alright – game on! I’m going to begin tackling my mess of a guest room tomorrow (read all about it here). Do I want to sleep in, have a leisurely breakfast, browse through my favorite fleatique store, and go to a relaxing movie?
YES (enthusiastically nodding head)! No. I want to organize instead ( blast). Seriously, I’ll be so happy when I’ve actually done it…yep, I’ll be happy…I’ll be really happy (repeat 10 times…and then repeat again). Argh…just look at that room.
I’m going to fuel up on a homemade latte and start tackling that room inch by inch…well…maybe foot by foot…inch by inch could take a while. I keep reminding myself that the hardest part is getting started. Once you’re in there working (and listening to some good tunes) it’s not so bad.
I’ll show you what I am able to accomplish on Monday, but if you’re planning on working on a room of your own this weekend, here’s my initial gameplan.
Step 1 - Divide and Conquer: Armed with garbage bags and boxes I’ll be dividing the contents of my room into categories. These will likely include:
- Stuff to Sell either on Ebay, Craigslist or at a Garage sale
- Stuff to Keep in the Room (and find a place for)
- Stuff to Keep but Move Elsewhere in the House
Anything that ends up in the Goodwill pile will immediately be taken to Goodwill. Anything in the Ebay or Craigslist pile will be listed right away…I know what happens if I put that task (uh hum…see photo above). Anything else that doesn’t belong in the room will also immediately find a new home…and if I can’t find a home for it I probably don’t need it that badly, right?
Once the excess is cleared out I can then focus on organizing the room to make it function the way it should. That will be Step 2 of the Gameplan, which I’ll share with you next week.
Have a great weekend everyone! And stay warm!!!
