My goal is to declutter/organize something at least 15 minutes every single day. But, as the FlyLady says, “You are not behind. Do not try to catch up. Just jump in where we are.” Those are such freeing words to me! I still plan to do my daily 15. But if I get off track, if life gets in the way despite my best efforts, I will simply carry on where I left off and celebrate my accomplishments. 🙂
I did not get back to the basement family room yet. But I did clear another hot spot. My DH complained that the dish cloths were “rammed” into their drawer, and I decided to find out how much of what’s in that drawer we really need. I emptied it, sorted, and replaced only what we need in about 2 minutes. Plastic bags will be repurposed in our bag of bags. A table runner I had “lost” was placed on the table, and we can now find dish towels, dish cloths, and hand towels as needed. Yea!
