First, a more dramatic difference in a small area - the crayons drawer:
Then, a far much less impressive difference, but in my most challenging area - my desk:
It might take some detective work to find the difference...
Did you find any?
See the inside right hand corner of the desk surface? There used to be two boxes with a pile of paper on top, and it is just one box now!
Progress is progress, right? I need to keep myself motivated, as I am feeling very useless lately. I need to purposely think about what productive things I spent my time on.
Actually, there was a time between these two desk pictures were taken, my desk looked better. I was keeping my incoming paper work "current", meaning that, they were being dealt with almost immediately.
I got side-tracked to work on something else...
In my last post, I wrote about a garage sale. Even though I did not sell much due to my stupidity, I did spend the time and gather up things that could go.
I also worked on my girl's clothes again, sorting out the ones that is now too small and passed them on.
I also participated in a cloth diaper garage sale. I bought three boxes of diapers (yes, I bought more than two kids' worth of diapers!) to the garage sale and bring home one empty box.
With more than half of the cloth diapers left, I spent the time to take individual pictures and am currently listing those in a local cloth diaper group. With this listing experience, all the enquiries and messages, I must say, I grow a new level of respect who sell anything out of their home! The group will have a physical meeting this Thursday. Hopefully, I can get some of those sold!
I also tried my hands at making homemade laundry detergent. Perhaps, I could share my experiences and my silly mistakes with you in another blog post.
While I am happy that I managed to do quite a few things on my want-to-do-since-forever list, I am disappointed that I had to fall behind in other areas to achieve it.
That means, I am paying off some old debt with some new ones... I need to spend more time in budgeting.
