The Game Plan

While I am not a minimalist, I do love a house that is tidy, organized and purposeful. I love white spaces and light/bright rooms; so having a lot of stuff on display stresses me out. I love my house to have a “magazine feel” and while not everything I own is magazine cover worthy, I want my house to look edited and styled.

One step towards reaching my organizational goals is making sure that everything has a zone, this means  going thru every item I own and making the decision to keep or toss (donate). Then I make or create its zone, the place where that item will live for the rest of our time together. My end goal is to limit the number of items I display in each area of my home.

    I totally wanted to take part in this but then I saw the part about kitchen cupboards and that is something I soooo do not want to deal with… Although you’re right… I need to get on with it! Thank you for the helpful plan 🙂

    OMG ! What a great idea! I may just have to do this- I love that it doesn’t feel too overwhelming to just pick one thing to focus on to clean for that day!

    This is a great idea, I like how you broke the projects down into manageable tasks. I have to do this, I have been terrible since I had kids.

    This is perfect, especially as we transition from fall to a new season. Like Spring cleaning.

    I may try this! I need to be a little bit more organized. There are kids toys every where in our home!
