It’s Friday again . . . how exactly did that happen?
Last week was the first Focus Check Friday, something I’m planning to do every Friday. You can read this post where I explain its basic concept.
My focus this week has been on our garage sale. Our blankety-blank garage sale. I’m not too terribly excited to get up early (crazy early) on Saturday morning. But I know that I have to do it. I have to get all of this stuff out of here, so we can truly start living a more clutter-free life. We’ve made such huge progress this year, since starting the blog, but as long as it’s still sitting outside that door, we’re really only clutter-moved, not yet clutter-free.
I have done my weekly tasks each day this week. Monday I did laundry, Tuesday I cleaned bathrooms, and today I mopped the kitchen floor. I’m proud of myself for that. If I didn’t have designated days for those things, I definitely wouldn’t have done them on a week when the much-more-important garage sale prep was looming over me.
Last week for Focus Check Friday, I realized I needed to re-focus on my daily checklist. Every day but yesterday, I physically picked up the list and carried it around the house, consciously checking things off. It made a huge difference.
Next week is the week before school lets out. My goal for the week is to make my garage park-able. We recently swapped a mini-van for a Suburban, so I have no idea if that is even physically possible, but I won’t know until I try. If it is possible, I’d love to be able to park in the garage before the seat-burning heat of summer hits full force.
