Minimalism Monday - New Month New Goals



June 5, 2017

The goals for May went right out the door because of work and more work. When I work at home as a caregiver I can make a little time to do things here but when I work away from home and be a caregiver I barely have time to breathe.

Last month I wanted to finish painting the kitchen and clean out my walk in closet, I did not get the kitchen  but I did get half of the closet accomplished, the part I dreaded. 

What`s new goals do I have for June?

I am not sure I need to make any goals and just let things happen. I know I will get something accomplished, life is uncertain at the moment so plans can or will be broken, save myself the disappointment of not getting to what I had my heart set on doing.

My Must Do List :

No matter what,  I will do my "chores" at home. What you call chores and what I call chores may be the same or not. 

Laundry is something I absolutely hate to pile up, not just the smell but it`ll mildew and be ruined. Whether I wash and toss them on the bed for folding later, the linens and clothes get cleaned. 

Dirty dishes is another thing I hate to let pile up, if I cannot get them done each night I soak them in the sink and wash them first thing in the morning, its rare but at times I do have to let them go till morning. FYI - I hand wash my dishes I do not have a dish washer.

Another thing is the living room, where the mess can get out of control fast, I have to stay on top of that mess. 

The past week I have kept all the paper work filed and put away.

I have also managed to keep the recycling together and taken to the donation bin. Each week I make two drops at the office trash can for the things that cannot be recycled. 

This last week I made sure to change all the bed sheets in the house, clean beds are as important to me and clean clothes on my back.

I am slacking on the dusting and vacuuming because I need to be quiet more sine I have someone sick and resting in the house for two weeks.

What I need to work on :

My main problem is the outsides, it has rained everyday, if not all day then only when I get off of work and head outside. I need to mow the lawn, the fields and the garden. I need to load the ruck with stuff and haul it to the dump, I just do not know where or how things " just show up" and need to be gone. 

How was your past week? Get anything done on your cleaning or clearing list?

  1. Its good to set goals, but also good to be realistic. Maybe set ONE goal for June, and focus on getting it done at some point in the whole month. For each month you sucesfully suceed at it, add a nother goal the next month.

  3. I got very little done in the way of organizing and downsizing. Ugh. It's very hard to do these things when working outside the home, isn't it?

    1. Yes, sometimes takes me days for one room, since I have to leave for work.
