Day 8 of 60/300

This weekend is quite busy, and requires my house be in semi-order. On Saturday we are celebrating Charlie’s 1st birthday with a small BBQ at the house. His birthday is on Friday but it makes more sense to celebrate it on Saturday. I can’t believe my baby is turning 1, this year has flown by….

1 Week Down!!! 1 room complete!

Today marks one week since I began my 60/300 challenge, and today I completed my first room. I absolutely love it and at the moment its the only non-chaotic room in the house so I just want to hide out in it and bask in the serenity of a clean, non cluttered room. I should…

Day 6 of 60/300

Another day where not much on the house got done – but today was far from productive! In fact, this entry is so late because we just literally got home! I’ve mentioned the Dave Ramsey method and how we follow it. Recently we paid our Trailblazer off 2 years early, which saves us nearly $400…

Day 5 of 60/300 – a day of little productivity.

Do you ever have one of those days where you want to get into your car and drive as far away as possible? Today was one of those days. From the moment I woke up until 9 pm tonight the longest stretch of time I had today without one of the kids crying or whining…

Day 3 of 60/300

When we first moved into this home Chris took the door off the Master Closet as it wasn’t designed very well. With the door on it would hit the shelves and make it very difficult to get things into and out of the closet. I HATE this as I hate people sitting on the toilet…

Day 2 of 60/300!

A few years ago Chris and I switched to the Dave Ramsey method of budgeting. We don’t follow it as well as we should but I still swear by it. When we first switched we did actual, literal Envelope for our Envelope Budgeting. After a while our Envelopes began to look sad, so we switched…

60/300 Day 1!

Today began my kickoff of my personal Spring Challenge – my 60/300 challenge. As much as I try to keep my home as clean and neat as possible it is quite challenging with 4 young ones running around and a very sweet, caring – but messy – husband to clean up after. One day of…

Starting the 60/300 challenge!

I’ve decided to challenge myself this spring. Today I begin my 60/300 challenge. In the next 60 days I will completely spring clean, purge, organize, and decorate my home. I will post 60 blog posts and each blog post will have at least one picture of my progress. I will complete all of this spending…

I’ve got the organization bug!

Having diagnosed OCD means that I get very anxious when my house is not the way I like it. Building a stockpile means that there is a lot of new items in my home and I’m itching to find a way to organize them! My good friend Kristina directed me towards this blog I Heart…

Friday Five: The Opposite of Charlie Sheen

I have been a soldier this week, because despite the fact that I’ve been battling illnesses, exhaustion, and ennui, I still managed to uphold my commitment to my 40 Bags in 40 Days project.  Doing a deep clean is no joke – and I mean that. Every day, I’ll look around our house and think,…
