Happy Monday; I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mine was busy; a good blend of productive and relaxing. The productive part included dominating the organization challenge. It start Friday with the master closet.
I had gotten into a habit of just throwing clothes into cubbies. I knew where to find them, but the whole thing was unorganized and ugly. I also had maternity clothes mixed in with regular clothes and clothes hanging up that I knew I’d never wear again. I tore into it.
I organized each cubby into a category and put the ones I use most often (maternity yoga pants) in the most accessible location. I also went through all my clothes and came up with a big ‘ol bag to donate. Of course, there is still laundry to do, but isn’t there always?
Saturday was busy. I attended the NC Fitness expo, which was a lot of fun. I ran into some friends and tried some new products. My favorite was this Clear My Head purse-sized essential oil bottle that used scent to clear up a headache. It really smells like it works!
That evening David and I were invited to a health-focused dinner with some friends at Trump National. The food was phenomenal and I couldn’t get over the dessert. A vegan cashew coconut cheesecake with chocolate nut crust. It was amazing. Horrible picture, delicious dessert!
With Saturday being so full, I cheated and actually tackled both Saturday & Sunday’s organization task on Sunday- the fridge and freezer. I keep a pretty organized fridge I thought, so I was shocked at how many items needed to be tossed out and how desperately it needed a scrub.
David helped me remove all the shelves and drawers so I could scrub them down.
It was the same protocol for the overloaded freezer.
The pictures might not show a big difference, but the fridge and freezer feel so FRESH. I love having it cleaned and reorganized, and stocked for the week, of course.
Speaking of stocked, meals are planned for the week!
Greek Style Shrimp over Spaghetti Squash
Vegan Bean Burgers with Homemade Sweet Potato Fries
Chicken Tortilla Soup
Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Spicy Lentils with Sweet Potato and Kale
And the list…
We aren’t expecting any snow, but it is supposed to be cold tonight (like 7 degrees). I’m wondering if that is the reason the store was almost completely wiped out of produce? Luckily I snagged most of what I needed.
It looks as though the organization bug continues to take over my life. Just look at my cart. I didn’t even notice how organized it was until it was pointed out on instagram! Haha.
Do you organize your grocery cart or just toss it all in?
