This lil table is proof that some times I can get in the mood to really clean. Oh you should have seen it before it got this good...piled up with so many things with no rhyme or reason. I even found a clean unmated sock!!! So yesterday before we went to church I decided to tackle it. I have read all these monthly magazines with tips on how to organize and the only hint I found do-able was the 15 minute rule. You set a timer for 15 mins and do what you can and when the timer goes off...walk away. Do something else. Then if you still fell motivated come back for 15 more. Hmmmm I says to myself...I think I can spare 15 mins...as long as there a cup of hot chocolate as a reward. So I set my oven timer for 15 mins and set off to do just those 15 and then my cup of cocoa and then I had to get ready for church. Needless to say those 15 mins was just the kick in the seat of my pants that I needed. When I came back home I don't want to tell you how many more 15 min mini-cleans I did..BUT...I got er done! I actually found the table cloth underneath...haven't seen that since June! I am so excited that I may clean the whole house in times sessions! Of course my rewards are gonna have to change...theres only so many cups of hot chocolate I can drink. Theres even a bakers rack to the left of the table that I started to clean but it really needs a complete over haul. Would love to be able to just have it for all my beads...so they could be in one place. The only problem is the small baby food containers that each group of beads are in are smaller than the bars of the shelf, making it possible for the whole container to slip thru and if they were stacked the whole column would come crashing down. I don't want to put all of them in shoe boxes as they are now because then I have to rummage thru the whole box to see what beads I have. Funny, I am so diligent to put even the smallest quantity of beads in a lil container, even write on a paper what they are and where purchased...then the containers make their way all thru the house...right now as we speak there are some in the Dining Room hutch, the desk and now the bookcase and bakers rack.Oh some day I will be so organized...wonder how many 15 mins are in some day???? Have a great day all and sending you warm hugs from a frosty cold Cleveland!
