Getting Organized

Today I worked on my new beginning. I worked on organizing. First, I tackled stacks of papers on my desk. I expanded my filing system and found a place for everything. Now I won't spend hours looking for papers I need.

Second, I organized all my cosmetics. This included tubes, jars, and bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body wash, moisturizers, etc. I have a bad habit of trying new products. Some I like better than others. So I had too many leftovers lying around. When I find one I really like I usually buy it in multiples because every time I use one up and go to buy more, it's been discontinued. Sometimes I buy another of what I already have, because I can't find the one I already have. This morning I gathered them all together and sorted them out and found containers to group them in. Now I know where everything is. I probably won't have to buy another product for quite a while!

I went outside and walked, too. Fortunately, the weather was nice enough to get outside. The heat and humidity had finally subsided so I could breathe and not bathe in sweat. Also, I ate healthy food, and counted my points.

These were small steps toward my new beginning. One step at a time.

Not so small! And significant steps too. Good work!

Thank you Rachel. Today I have to babysit my nieces, so I might not get so much accomplished. Other than use my new-found non-doormat self to not give in to their every whim!
