Blitz It Friday--Big Project Part 2
Once again I'm late to the party. It took me till Saturday just to do my blitz then another two days to write about it. In the words of my cousin, a new mom, "Motherhood is busy." Here's what I accomplished last week.
So my project is my foyer table and my goal was to spend 30 minutes going through the paper crap. Saturday, I gathered the "to file" basket, my new manila folders, and a stapler and sprawled out on the living room floor while the kids slept and hubby worked. Because my filing cabinet is a project in and of itself, I just made new folders for all the different topics as they came up. I went about 15 minutes past the timer for a 45 minute blitz. It felt like I was trying to empty the ocean with a teaspoon. I'm so aggravated that my house is a disaster area and I have no time to deal with it.
This is a busy week ahead, but I will try to do another 30 minute blitz. Also, I'll try to upload my "before" picture.
Sunday morning I blitzed my kitchen table for 25 minutes. And I didn't even finish, that's how messy it was! I need a new system, everything gets dumped there. I managed to get through all but two pieces of mail, made a much smaller paper pile, and wiped down the surface.
