Minimalism Monday - Bouncing Around

Whewww! Last week was a full week of fast living and on the go go and go!

This week I do not plan for the week to be as fast but I know my life and that is not going to happen. I got up earlier this morning for two hours to use for just me and here I am, blogging :)

The past weekend was ..... it was do as I could. I am taking care of someone very sick and when he sleeps I can`t wake him, he needs to sleep, so I do whatever I can on pother rooms.

However, I did mange to get three loads of laundry done. I washed , dried, folded and /or hung and made sure all of them were put away.

I always seem to keep the kitchen cleaned up, I think I am OCD about that room, but its where I cook and what goes into my body.

Since I had to be quiet I decided to consolidate items to make more space in the pantry, or rather make things more accessible, instead of falling if the shelf ever got bumped. Plus this keeps me in check so not to over buy any product that might spoil, after all if it spoils I am wasting money! I don`t know about you but I don`t have enough to waste.

You can read more about that here :Organizing Your Space -Consolidating Stuff

I did not, I repeat I did not finish the pantry.

Next I bounced to the dining room table, all the paperwork, I filed more but I did not do anymore with the tax preparation. 

I picked up all the stuff in the living room and put it away, seems this is a catch all place because he loved the couch and t.v.

I did buy the newspapers this Sunday for the coupons, I clipped those, filed them away in the binder. NONE laying around for later.

I used a lot of the stockpile last week, since its the last week before payday I did not want to spend all my money buying something else or eating out. ( I am so burned out on food!)

I did take off the recyclables and got all the trash out, I am paying for trash pick up at the office so I take it there. (I know! that irks me to have to pay)

SO... I did not finish anything this past weekend.

How did you do with your home?

  1. I had an antiproductive week. I actually took something back OUT of the trash that I had put into it! (I did use said item on a craft project though) and I bought several things at work and brought home to add to the mess.

    1. well..... you did use the item right away.. you need to do the 3 day waiting. That way you are not just buying because its on sale.

  2. Things have been crazy around here these days. I just need to get back on track, what ever that nay be.

    1. LOL... just take one day at a time.

  3. Well, cheers for what you did accomplish! You cleaned up *some of* the mess, and got *some* exercise...

    1. Lol, there is my ray of sunshine! How are you Mrs. King?

    2. Sort of gladdened by your daffodils, Ms. Perry!
