2012 Resolution

My New Years Resolution is to get our house organized.

We moved in at the beginning of last year and I was 6 months pregnant. My baby now takes at least one two to three hour nap a day so I have no more excuses for an unorganized house! I want to make a to do list for Hubby and I to work on. When I get this to do list done I get a sectional sofa for our family room!!!

  1. Hang pictures and mirrors- we have pictures and mirrors we know where we want to put them but haven't gotten around to doing it yet!

  2. Will and Trust- I like to lay awake at night worrying. I told Hubby the other night I was worried about Chase while he was sleeping and that worrying is in my nature. He said, "I know." Anyways, one of the things I worry about is not having our Will and Trust done so we need to get on it!

  3. Clean the blinds- This is a project I've been working on for awhile and I need to finish!

  4. Organize Chase's clothes- I think my sil and I are going to work on this on Friday. He has short sleeved 6 month stuff hanging in his closet. Boyfriend sleeps in 12-18 month footie jammies. Time to put away the 6 month short sleeved stuff!

  5. Donate clothes I don't wear!

  6. Wash make up brushes

  7. Wash bras

  8. Move Chase's jumperoo to next notch

  9. Clean appliances

  10. Wash cars

  11. Clean all the hard-to-reach places: behind the stove, refrigerator, washer/ dryer, sofas and under beds. Dust behind furniture and appliances. Dust window sills, ceilings, and baseboards. Don't forget to dust down doors, molding, and hidden corners were cobwebs may form.

  12. Clean carpet

  13. Wash windows and screens.

  14. Clean oven

  15. Clean stove burners with Ammonia

  16. Rotate mattress

  17. Buy trash can for aluminum cans

  18. Turn in aluminum cans

  19. Organize papers

  20. Update filing system


  1. All of those are totally doable! I need to rotate my mattress hardcore!!

  2. I need to do so many of those things myself.

  3. Love the list! I made a family goal spreadsheet for us yesterday and I also added a Will and Life Insurance on there - how the heck did we get so grown up? I love that you are rewarding yourself with a sofa. FYI - we got our awesome sectional at American Furniture Galleries (there's one off 65 by the Galleria). Awesome prices and customer service. Good luck with the list!
