Organize my expedite shelves. I recently moved some stuff around in my office, which included a big expedite shelf... and for now, there is all kinds of crap shoved into the shelves. I'm hoping to bring some order to the chaos eventually.
Create a "life folder" of some sort. With all of the adoption paperwork we have been doing lately, now is the perfect time to clean up and update our personal files. I've been using a similar system for our adoption paperwork, so I'm thinking this will be fairly easy to create.
Paint something. Spring is the perfect time to paint that old piece of furniture that you keep talking about, or maybe you're super artsy and need to pull out the brushes and canvas? I'm not quite sure what yet... but I'll be painting something this spring:)
Do something with my pictures. I have been working on a Project Life album this past year, but I am incredibly behind. I would love to figure out a system that works for me... especially in getting all of those past year's photos off of my computer and into an album of some sort.
Bring order to my closet. I may not be able to have a customized walk-in closet... but I can organize parts of my closet. I love this idea of using an old dresser in a totally new way.
Organize those recipes. I may not cook much... but you would never know that by the amount of recipe cards I have stuffed all over the place. I have a cute little recipe book... but the cards just never seem to make their way back to the right spot... which is proof that I actually used some of them at one time...
Make use of unseen cabinet space. This is the perfect spot for take out menus, important phone numbers, baby-sitter notes, and even calendars and doctor appointment reminders. And those little Martha Stewart self sealing protectors make it super easy to corral everything in one spot.
8) Clean out the fridge. With my new job, I have been trying to make my lunch more often... and the task is way easier if everything is visible in the refrigerator. I also love the idea of having all of the sandwich supplies in one convenient container... makes the whole "make-your-lunch-experience" way more tolerable.
9) Splurge on fresh flowers. It's amazing how much fresh spring flowers can boost your mood. And how cute is this bouquet in this adorable teapot!
What about you? Do you have a spring cleaning list? Have you already started? Finished? Any tips for us late bloomers?
