So I’ve been on a quest to be a better manager of my home. My time in particular. I’ve been making goals, writing list, and spending less time on Facebook and other Internet sites. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it when you notice that you actually do have more time to spend with your family when you don’t let it get wasted by meaningless things. Since I’m doing better about my time (although I have a long way to go) I thought I would take on an organization challenge from Home Storage Solutions 101. It’s a 52 week challenge to organize your entire home and the first project is the kitchen. I’m the type of person who likes to keep my counters cleared because I don’t like clutter but I do have some trouble spots, such as dishes in the drainer, and the occasional mail pile up on the counters. I find that when these things are clear it makes the kitchen much more inviting and I actually do want to spend time there. So, if you’d like to follow along you are more than welcome, as I journal my organizational progress.
