Happy December! This month will be full of all kinds of special homemaking activities whether it’s related to the changing season, the Christmas holiday, or other events unique to your home.
Last week we did some rearranging of things in our family room and library when we put up the Christmas decorations. They were really good changes and I may try to write about them with some photos. It’s amazing how making a few little changes in where things are located in a room can make a big difference. We definitely took another step forward in creating a cozy home.
I’m going to try to keep my goals low-key and reasonable this month. There will be plenty of time for doing the deep dive into cleaning in January.
Goal 1 – Wipe out all the bathroom drawers. It’s been a while so it’s time to pull everything out and make sure they are clean.
Goal 2 – Spend fifteen minutes continuing to go through recipes and cleaning them out.
Goal 3 – Remove 20 things from the house either through donation or selling. We dropped off a box at Goodwill last week and I plan on doing another one this week.
What are your goals for this week? Feel free to share them in a comment and then come back on Friday to tell us how it went. If you need ideas, you could check out A Quiet Simple Life Planner and Guidebook.
Remember that our goal is progress and not perfection!
