I decide every year that I’m going to start plants from seeds to save money instead of buying the plants from nurseries in the spring. And every year, I fail to start the seeds on time and have to buy the plants. Today I went through all the seeds that I bought and put them into piles according to when I needed to start them. I then printed out calendars for the next four months and wrote on specific dates exactly what I needed to plant when based on the organized piles. I will not only use the calendars for planting, but I also will cross off each day to remind myself to check on/water the seeds daily. My first planting is this weekend and I am totally ready for it!
My room has been a disaster area since at least October and I kept using my busy schedule as an excuse to live in filth. I discovered your blog on Monday and felt so very inspired. So Wednesday morning I decided to do a 45/15 before work. Just one corner of my room, but I accomplished a great deal so I decided to do another round when I got out of work. Amazingly my 45/15 after work turned into me cleaning for 3 hours straight! I got rid of a bunch of purses that I never use and finally got rid of boxes from things I ordered online months ago. I had been looking for a place to put all of my books for the longest time because my bookcase is used to house shoe boxes and purses but because I got rid of all of those purses I managed to fit ALL of my books on my bookcase. I vacuumed and put clothes away and made my bed. I finally quit around 3:30AM but I woke up the next morning and kept cleaning. My room is still nowhere near where I want it but it is so much better than it has been that I felt compelled to write my thanks for the inspiration. Keep motivating people because it works!
Yay! Just remember, marathons aren’t always the most healthy way to clean. Now that you’re well on your way, try to stick to 20/10s or 45/15s to pace yourself. And keep it up!
… and I have to pack everything again. It’s almost like moving in the first place.
It’s mostly clothes that I have to wash then shove in my laundry bag. After that comes do-dads such as books and stuff I got for Christmas, yarn, books, and books. And making sure I’ve got my stuff ready for debate-tournament judging.
Thanks to you, I finally got off my lazy butt and unfucked my homework that was due this week.
Next week is a different story but I’m already working on that! I have a plan and everything!
