Just a few Pumpkins Outdoors-organizing plan

Autumn Bliss-Have you been enjoying all the Autumn Posts by everyone in blogland. I have enjoyed all the fall home tours, fall decorations...indoors and outdoors...just lovely. I have even googled "Fall Home Tour" and just look at all the images that pop up...oh my...heavenly!
It's like visiting your neighbors without leaving the living room!
Everyday I am doing one project...cleaning or organizing project.....usually takes an hour or two...but I have
a plan...and that is to have most of the clutter gone by the time the serious holidays arrive!

 I read that if you spend 15 minutes a day on a cleaning/organizing project that at the end of the week you will have devoted almost 2 hours without really upsetting your normal schedule and you have the blessing of a cleaned closet, drawers, or file cabinet.  This is what I am aiming for.  No big painting or remodeling projects just cleaning and organizing for the next couple of weeks. How about You? Do you have a plan?
"The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever." Isaiah 40:8

I like your plan...I think I could do the 15 minutes a day. Sometimes when I feel overwhelmed, I estimate the time it will take me to do it and I'm always amazed that it really doesn't take a lot of time. Then I add more to it!! lol!

Right now I am in the process of packing away simmer clothes and bringing out the cold weather clothes. That does take some time because some of my sweaters need to go to the dry cleaners and sometimes I'm scrambling around for boxes. Well...it all gets done in the end!!

Thanks for your tips, Debbie!

The quilts are awesome.
I'm with you; no new painting or remodeling projects for me. Just staying ahead of mess.
