This month, due to being away for 10 days or more, I haven't actually tackled any major simplification tasks, but what I did do was to purchase a few more photo albums and continue with the re-organisation of our family photos. One more album has been filled, but I still have two to organise, as I ran out of photo corners. I have ordered some more from eBay, which I am waiting to receive, so hopefully, I should finish this task completely next month and then it will just be the digital photos that I need to organise.
I did, however, complete another unfinished task this month, namely that of organising the spices in my kitchen, after buying a couple more spice jars.
A new simplifying task I completed this month, was to move my mini greenhouse down to the end of the garden, which I've been meaning to do for a while, in readiness for building work on the house later this year. I'm happy to have completed this task, as it means that I can now concentrate on what needs packing away inside the house before work begins and I can also eventually go ahead and plant tomato plants into the greenhouse, now it is in it's new and permanent position.
The only other breakthrough I've had this month in terms of simplifying, is to get on board with the Flylady, to get my house in order and keep it clean. It's still very early days, but every little job done makes life a little easier. It's an ongoing process of developing a routine that suits me and my lifestyle, but I'm hoping it will make a big difference to keeping on top of the household organisation and cleaning in the future.
Next month, I'm hoping to simplify the garden beds by getting help from OH to build new covers for them, (already done!), I hope to have progressed with a lot more cleaning of the house and should have managed to wash and store away all my autumn/winter clothing until next year. (Washed but need to store!) I haven't got any other simplifying tasks in mind as yet, but some more may come to me as the month and the Flylady process progresses. I'll keep you posted.
