The last date scheduled on my list was April 4th. I took a couple extra days to finish it up because I was feeling a little exhausted but I’m finally done!
With my last few days I cleaned out all the junk in my truck and deleted about a billion emails from my 5 email accounts.
I also reorganized our desks and purged some office supplies that we never use, were broken, have been updated, etc.
I did quite a bit of work on some meal planning and prepping to make freezer meals in a couple weeks. (If you have any recommendations, I’d love to hear them!) Trying to get things ready and simple for when the little man gets here so all I have to do is heat and eat!
Some fun mail came last week in the form of a fancy new planner from Plum Paper Designs on Etsy so I basically got my entire life reorganized. I’ll be posting about this amazing planner later on this week.
I did a big purge on my fridge and freezer, got rid of any and all expired salad dressings, condiments, etc. I went back through my junk drawer and basket on the counter where stuff seems to accumulate. I’ve done a decent job of keeping that organized so that task was a breeze.
Finally I straightened up my closest that’s under the stairs (again) and made it so I could store some baby items in there that he won’t need until he’s older.
This challenge was a decent success! I know I could have stayed on top of things a little bit better and stuck to my schedule more strictly. Regardless of my motivational deficiencies, after 40 days I can definitely tell a difference in my house. I would estimate that I purged at least 15 full trash bags of stuff, between items to donate and junk that needed to be thrown out!
This gives me a head start on my upcoming move this summer, as well as make room for our new addition and all of his goodies!
How’d you do with your challenge? Share in the comments below! I’ll definitely be doing this again next spring. Now off to find a new challenge!
