Home Stuff

I made a list yesterday of all the things that I want to do to my house. Or, I should say all the things that I could think of in each room while sitting on the couch. There may be more things when I go through each room.

The bathrooms I would love to be able to redo but I don't know when I'll ever have money to do so. For the time being anything in brackets is more on the wish list.

There are a LOT of tasks but by making a list and trying to break it down, I'm hoping I won't feel so overwhelmed. This weekend my goal is to get just one thing done on the list. Having one thing checked off will go a long way to making me feel accomplished and wanting to keep going.

    What a great list! There are definite affordable bite-sized items in there that will make a big difference. You should do before & after photos of your accomplishments! I always love seeing people’s homes, and how they make them awesome.

    And thanks for the reminder – I put together a box of donations the other day that needs to b dropped off. It feels so good to cleanse and purge!

    Fantastic list! I am a big believer (and lover) of lists. They’re motivating, while also a bit daunting, but the best part is crossing things off. 🙂

    Make sure to do before/after pics! 😀 I want to see!
