I’ve skipped a few months on the organizing thing. But something about the weather turning always puts me back into organizing mode. I guess because I love to be cozy in the winter, and I can’t be cozy if things are in a mess.
Winter is also my time to NOT travel as much, which means I get to spend more time in my studio, so I like for it to be clean and organized, too.
That being said, I have yet to complete all of this year’s previous organizing challenges. I did finish one of them, and it has stayed organized all this time — can you believe it? The others, I have either chipped away at a little bit and made some progress, or else I’ve just ignored my own advice altogether and haven’t touched them!
How about you? Have you gotten any more organized this year?
I have used a LOT of fabric out of my stash this year to make backings for scrap quilts. And I’ve cut out a lot of pillowcases I need to get sewn up. Even so, I still don’t have space in my bins for all my fabric to be put away, so I’m still working on it. For some odd reason, I keep being tempted to buy more! Am I the only one this happens to?
I’ve also spent a lot of time decluttering, which has helped greatly, altho you can’t tell it by the current state of my cutting table, which I’m not sure I’ll even be able to get clean yet this month! I’ve been working on it, and you can’t even tell. Ugh!
There’s no need to even discuss how ridiculous this is!
For this month’s challenge, I’m picking a smaller task, just so I can feel like I actually accomplished something:
This right here is my one thing:
This crazy makes-no-sense pile on the end of my ironing board! WHY???? Why is it here? Why do I do this? Why is the ironing board a good dumping ground for a pile? Why??
Also, the ironing board needs a new cover, and I bought the fabric for a new cover back in the summer, but I just haven’t done it yet. Procrastination at its finest!
So, that’s what I’ll be working on. What about you?
What’s been bugging you about your space, that you feel the need to work on?
What one smaller task can you do that will make you feel a lot better about your space going into the holiday season?
I’m hoping that by getting my ironing board whipped into shape, it will carry over into other areas, and give me some forward momentum to tackle some more difficult spots.
How about you? I’d love to hear what organizing task you decide to tackle.
