    Default McJag's weekly home organization assignment

    (as per your request McJag)

    Each week something in our homes needs organizing, purging, and arranging.

    CD's and DVD's in order?
    Magazines and mail sorted through?
    Under the kitchen and bathroom sinks free of things not used?
    Photos sorted?
    Clothing closets looking the way you want?
    Linen closet looking good?
    Newspapers tossed?
    Refrigerator cleaned and arranged?
    Children's toys organized? (or your toys? )
    2008 taxes and paperwork filed away?

    What did you do this week?

    I purged old cosmetics.

    Very good,Chalet! But I think we should all stay together,both for encourgement & sympathy. I say we go with the refrigerator idea this week end!
    Honey! You slacker! Vacuuming does not count! I assume you meant that-hoovering? Right?
    Chalet! We are not known for our long attention span! Only one assignment per week ,please!!

    All-righty - I shall also clean my refrigerator this weekend. We've been keeping the house photo-shoot perfect for potential buyers, but the fridge, filing and cupboards have been somewhat neglected. Love the idea of a weekly assignment!

    Have you ever visited flylady.net?

    She has fantastic organizing and de-crapifying tips.

    I'm pretty anal retentive and don't hoard much but I do have a collection of Gourmet and Bon Appetit magazines I organized by year and month.

    I decided to get rid of them so one of these days I'm going to go through them and import all the recipes I want into my Master Cook file on my computer.

    CD's and DVD's in order? They're all in a binder so they're fine
    Magazines and mail sorted through? Always throw the junk in the garbage right away, I may need to do a little sorting.
    Under the kitchen and bathroom sinks free of things not used? Umm yeah, I do need to do that.
    Photos sorted? Yep
    Clothing closets looking the way you want? Sure if you don't look at the closet floor
    Linen closet looking good? Yep
    Newspapers tossed? Always
    Refrigerator cleaned and arranged? Once a week
    Children's toys organized? (or your toys? ) Yep, several times a day
    2008 taxes and paperwork filed away?Fuck! I knew I forgot to do something this week. I forgot to bring my papers to the accountant .


    McJag I think since this is your idea and I don't have the time to do all this stuff you'll have to come over and do it for me . Oh and since you're a nice southern lady you will cook us nice meals while you're at it

    I love the Flylady site. Someone here once recommended it.
