Good Intentions...

Okay, so you all know how I have to re-organize the toys every so often. Well, this morning, in the midst of many other chores that could be done, it hit me....I must re-organize the toys. So, we pulled everything out of the toy basket, and various other places. But, for some reason, that just wasn't quite enough. Then, I started moving furniture. (Isn't it amazing what hand towels can enable you to move by yourself?) So, after a crazy day, and some help from a friend...our dining room table is in our kitchen, the couch is turned around, the kid's storage cabinet is in a different room...and the living room carpet has toys all over it, with an empty toy basket less than a foot away. I'm tired. I think I will go put away some toys. But, it sure was fun!!! Isn't it amazing how moving things around a bit, and shaking things up a little can just spice up your day! We'll see what comes of it...

I love it...that sounds like something I would do. We've lived in this house for 8 years now, and there is nothing new I can do with the furniture arranging. But I still come up with these insane organizational kicks that send me into a fun flurry of activity. And when I'm done, I feel so much better. (See my blog today about an empty drawer).

I love doing that! I'm really excited to set up the new house this week. Wish you were here to advise me a little. ;)

I love rearranging furniture and de-cluttering.

I'm with you- but I'm confused about the hand towel enabling you to move things? Must share your secret...

The secret is: you place hand towels under each foot, or edge of the piece of furniture (we have hardwood floors). Then you can slide everything around.
