New Years Day: Beginning as I mean to go on.

New Year’s Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved.

Before
A couple of days ago I mentioned a couple of mini-courses I am taking, chief among these, for me at least, is the  52 Week Organized Home Challenge and Declutter 365 . I am so tired of my place looking like a disaster area.

I decided I would give this a try again. When I tried it back in the early 2000 it helped and between it and FlyLady I was able to get a 2000+ square foot house into some kind of order. Since I live in a 10th of that amount of space I should be able to keep it neat & tidy even if I am a decade older.

As you can see above I have a very small counter and finding prep space is very difficult. The mini task today was to declutter & clean around the sink since my sink takes up most of the counter that meant I needed to tackle the whole thing.

Once the dishes were done & put away it was really simple to do. I had already begun to move a lot of my small appliances & cooking pots to an extra bookshelf I had so I just moved the rest of them except for my Tassimo because I use that thing every morning. And I had room for my new knife set.

After
I am very proud of how it turned out though I will be looking for certain small additions over the next month or so beginning with some kind of tray to keep the sponges and things all in one place. I also will be looking for some kind of portable dish tray so I don't have the excuse to leave my dishes standing on the counter after they are dry because I will be able to store the drain tray. Right now it is sitting on the floor in front of that bookshelf I mentioned.
