December Goals!

Goodness has it been a while since I have written down some of our goals, or shared them. November was all about getting doors and door molding up (just 1 more door molding to go!) It felt good to have something constant to work on! There are things I can't do solo or don't know how to do so I had 2 Goals in November, 1 was renovation based the other was more just stuff for me to deal with.  Last month it was purging, my favorite group on Facebook (join us!!)  did a challenge for the month and it was so inspiring! I could actually go for it another month!

December is all about the kitchen when it comes to renovating 😳 I am scared and nervous and indecisive! We've got to pick a cabinet color once we get the cabinets sanded! Can't do anything until we get the sink in, I'm scared of that! And we also need to decide on what our breakfast bar part is going to look like, it used to have a pantry on top (weird) and now it's just plywood hanging out and I don't know what to do! Need to find a faucet! Leaning towards this one!   All of this while we prep for Christmas and enjoy the season!

Here is where we stand right now.. sawdust all over from the little sanding I have been able to do.


The non renovation goals I have for our house is meal planning for January! I don't think I will get much detailed planning going for December and I want to make sure we get January off on a good note!

This book is on my wish list for meal prep! And this might have to be added to my daily use!

1 Year To an Entirely Organized Home


 First I want to say that I know January, when the kids are home, after a few weeks off, may not be the ideal time to start. So, why am I starting now then?! For many of us the holidays are stressful. I NEED an outlet. Cleaning/Organizing is my favorite healthy outlet! If January is not the right time for you, it's ok! There aren't specific dates for this, just a weekly plan. 

We've been doing some purging together in our Facebook Group, it's helped me get rid of 275 ish things, and there are still plenty of days to go! I feel like I need to roll with that, before any clutter makes it's way back in!

I still try to do some organizing every week, usually on Friday. This fits right in with our current routine.

I've done this in the past (a couple houses ago) this is what that looked like




Sadly, many of those don't apply to our current home. Many still do though, and I have plenty of new things to add to this list.  Taking the time now to make my list so I have a plan and can jump right in that first week! How perfect that the 1st is a Sunday? Just lines right up with this plan!




I hope you will join and take the ones that don't apply to you (like Chicken stuff) out, and add what you need, in! Post it to instagram and help others get inspired to spend more time with their family and less time dealing with clutter! Tag me! @OregonHousewife :) I am sure I have some giveaways happening for participants!

Good Luck Cutting them even ;)
