Week at a Glance
I had a productive week and just in case you missed any of my posts, I’ve decided to do a weekly recap, when I can, on Fridays. One of my goals for this year is to write at least three blogs a week, and I think the weekly recap will help to hold me accountable. I realize things will come up, writer’s block will come along, but for the most part, I want to stick to my plan. So let’s get started with this past week, March 16 – Mach 19, 2015
I began a new series this week called Organizing on a Budget and the projects associated with that project as well as other article(s) posted this week are blow for your convenience.

Organize on a Budget-Small Spice Cabinet – I enjoyed this project and it may be one of my favorite because it has helped me to get organized in my kitchen which is very important. I am enjoying my new and improved spice cabinet. You can find this post here.
a My cabinets are small and my spice cabinet had reached a point where I could not find anything. I was also duplicating spices because I could not see what was in the back of the cabinet. There was total disarray. So I felt it was time to do something about it. Read more at Clearissa’s Command Center .

Organize On A Budget – I originally posted How to Refresh a Laundry Closet Without Spending a Penny was originally posted here. This was a project that did not cost a penny but had big results. The laundry closet is much brighter which makes the chore of doing laundry a little more pleasant. It’s still not my most favorite thing to do, but at least now the area isn’t depressing. My laundry closet is now a happy place. 🙂
The dark space has bothered me for over a year and I finally decided to do something about it. First I chose a pretty and bright color for the walls. I wish I could give you the name of the color paint used, but I mixed a couple colors to get it. I have a gold in my guest room and a yellow in my office and I mixed the two to come up with the bright gold I have now. I likey! You can read more here.

I Have an Addiction was written for Wednesday and was outside of my spring Organize On A Budget series. The article was written for Moms Magazine and was written with humor. However, although humorous, it depicts a real part of my life that I feel requires a little rearranging.
This addiction has progressed over the last couple of years. Before this addiction I would grab a book when I climbed into bed. Not anymore, now I grab my TV remote – I am so ashamed! There was a time I would play music if I were cleaning the house or cooking a meal, now I turn on the DVR in each room when I clean and the one in the kitchen if I’m preparing a meal. I know, I know, I am bad! Read more here.

I ended the week with another addition to my Organize on a Budget series. The final project this week is Organize on a Budget – Spring Kitchen Refresh. This was an easy project because it only required small changes. The kitchen received a big punch by adding pops of color. My kitchen is all “springed” out and brightened with color.
It’s the middle of March, we have sprung our clocks forward and yet, the temperatures are still in winter mode. Cold or not, I am in the mood for a little spring time, at least inside. And although I may be jumping the gun, I just could not stand it any longer. Besides, I figured if I spring clean and refresh while the temperatures are still cold out, I will be ahead of the game and ready to hit the outside as soon as the temperature is above 60. So I have begun my spring and summer cleaning and refresh. Read more here.
I’m not sure how long this series will continue but I am enjoying sprucing up the areas of my home that needed attention but did not require a total make over. I hope you are enjoying the series as well and will come back next week for more small spring refreshes or Organizing on a Budget.
Have an awesome and organized weekend
