As I’ve mentioned in my Facebook and blog postings, I’m slightly apprehensive to start anything called Boot Camp – especially when it comes to clearing out clutter. But I was given the opportunity to sign up for Buttoned Up Boot Camp and I figured it was a sign that it’s high time I start getting myself organized. I readily admit, I could never do this onmy own, I need someone “gently” (OK, kicking my ass) to stick to it.
I’d already put it half out of my mind when I woke up this morning. My general routine is to get up around 5:30 and check e-mails before the kids get up. And there it was waiting for me – my first cheery e-mail about my task for the day from the Buttoned Up Boot Camp team. What I like about this program is they let me break it down into small, manageable portions. As a full-time working mom, time is precious item. So, everyday, I just need to spend 30 minutes. I can even set a timer.
Today is Detox – not trying to organize, simply throwing out stuff I don’t use. They’re even giving me a pass on recycling – just a massive toss. Considering I couldn’t locate my second slipper this morning since it was buried under a pile of shoes that are old (OK, half are my hubby’s so I’m not going to take the full blame) I figure this is a great place to start!
