A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

Tuesday tip: In which I write about productivity

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Seriously, can we get a key for this?!
According to the Facebook statuses of my dearest friends and coworkers, I don't seem to be the only one struggling with productivity this summer. It comes in waves -- I'll have two or three days where I really buckle down and get some things organized, and then there will be a whole week where I couldn't tell you what I've done with my time (but clearly, nothing productive has taken place!)!

So when my coworker Monica posted this awesome blog from Be more with less, I knew I'd found a winner. The blog focuses on 25 Ways to Simplify Your Life in Ten Minutes or Less. Ten minutes? Sold! 

I decided to spend ten minutes in our junk room (yes, we have a junk room (which we also call our office)) this morning. This poor room became the catch all for anything wedding related, work related, computer related, junk mail related, and junk in general related. It was a sad state of affairs. But, after spending 40 minutes working on it, we can actually walk in the room now! I'm totally kicking myself for not taking before and after photos. I'd only intended to spend ten minutes working on it, but I got on a roll and couldn't stop! (To be fair, it helped that Dan has recently moved both of our giant bookshelves out of there, so there was actually room to organize things!)

And this week is finally going to be the week I work on our front door wreath! I've been wanting to make a wreath for our front door since I took down my Christmas ornament wreath, but was waiting for some inspiration to strike! I've seen some adorable yarn and felt wreaths on Etsy, and I think I'm finally ready to tackle making one! Just a few more supplies, and we'll be off and running! Can't wait for craft day Thursday! 

Before! 

Here's hoping you too are having a productive week! :)
