Cleaning up my act

December 30th, 2006 at 07:09 am

Ha ha! Okay, just the basement. We had a large Christmas explosion down there and it was time to clean up! I reorganized all the gift bags/tags/bows, etc., merging in all the new items bought at the after Christmas sales. I marked and put into a special box all the gifts I purchased for next year, then made a special list for my calendar book, so I don't rebuy anything for next year. Have enought Christmas cards and wrapping paper to last a couple of years again!
Also prepurchased the girls Valentines gifts (after clearance jewelry at Kohls) and cards and put them in a special spot, then all I will need to do is run by Walgreens when they have the Valentines candy on sale and pick up a few things! Got DH's anniversary card ready too!
Inspired by my buddy Contrary, I am going to try to organize the scrapbooking area I created downstairs so my best friend and I can start doing some serious work on our books! We will be a little chilly, but it will be our spot!

    Way to go! Not only is organizing the house free, I'm curious to see how much you "save" by finding things you forgot about, realizing you don't need to buy something you already have, get together stuff for sale on ebay or charitable donations...Good luck!
