Weeks 7-9 on the Organized Home Challenge are things I feel I'm fairly organized on: coupons, meal planning, and laundry room. Coupons I go through at the end of every month - I toss the expired ones and try to use the ones about to be expired. I use a little coupon caddy that lives in my purse. And I only clip coups for things I know we will need or use. For store coups, I just to pull those up on my phone and show the cashier. Meal planning happens here on every Thursday for the following week, then I shop after work on Tuesday. I post menus, but I am flexible on what I cook, depending on people's schedules. And the laundry room? Well, it's more of a nook and it has stayed fairly neat.
So this week I put up all of the pinecones and winter-looking greenery around the house. After all, it's like we never really got winter here in Central Texas and the days have been sunshiney beautiful. I bought a cute hob nail candle for $3 at JoAnn for the coffee table. And a few other small sewing supplies, but not much else. And yes, I did use my phone coupon!
I took pitifully few pictures since this week has been more about getting some other things done: bills, laundry, potting some plants, raking, running errands, sewing a bit, getting Bubbie's hair cut, and spending time with Hubby. And this weekend I have some extra time off, so I am going to chaperone a lock-in for the band kids, then head to Burnet on Saturday for the Torr Na Loch pick-up party. It was a great week at Camp Rustown and we are looking forward to a great weekend, too!
