Week(s)-At-A-Glance – Jan 11-Jan 18, 2016

From the Desk of Clearissa Coward’s Command Center – Week(s)-at-a-Glance

This is the first round-up of the new year – welcome back to Week-at-a-Glance. I’ve been slow getting back into the blogging saddle after a few weeks in family land. But I’m baaaccckkkk! 🙂  So another couple of weeks have passed and it’s time again for my weekly roundup. Although a little slow, it has been a great two weeks and start to the new year. . The Command Center invited my BB back and Patricia has not failed us again. Patricia is becoming a household name here at the Command Center and I want to thank the Command Center’s loyal followers for the great reception you all have given her.

I hope you all continue to enjoy the weekly organization series added to the command center and I hope the quick and easy organization weekly tips are helpful. This  year I am going to include articles on getting organized in mind, body, home and soul. I am thinking of eventually pulling them all together in an eBook for you guys. That way, you will not have to search to find a tip you may want to revisit or share with a friend. Hold on it’s coming.

Another reason for the delay of getting started is that I am finally working on he eBook I have been talking about for the past 5 months. Finally got started! I think you guys will enjoy it once I’m done, but please be patient, with a full time 8 – 4, my regular blog, my Avon business, and my family and church…not necessarily in that order, I am quite stretched, but it is in the works. Pray for me.

I want to invite you to share the Command Center with your friends and family. I am sure hey will benefit from the Command Center’s tips and projects as well. When you do that and your friend/family actually subscribe drop me a line and I will make sure you get a special gift from the Command Center to you for being such a great follower and ambassador.

As always, I thank you all for showing up every week and for following my projects. I wish I could explain to you how appreciated you are. In the meantime, please enjoy my posts from last two weeks and have a prosperous and productive weekend. Week-at-a-glance for Jan 11 – Jan 18, 2016.

Divinely Organized – Weekly Organization Tip Week 1 – Organization for Sweaters

My sweaters were stored on the top shelf of a spare closet and taking up prime real estate in my closet. But they are so bulky, they can take up a lot of closet space and the ones that were stacked in the closet were leaning and always falling over and it was difficult to pull one from the middle or the bottom of the stack and I tired of the mess. So I researched different types of sweater storage and decided to share my findings with you. This week the organization tip is how to store winter sweaters.

Chrome Shelf Dividers

My first option and the system I chose to use is the chrome shelf divider system. This system is inexpensive, easy to install and very effective. I have colored coded all my sweaters and the fact that you get 8 dividers in the package means you do not have to stack the sweaters really high which makes color coding and retrieval much easier. This system also keeps sweaters from tumbling over when you pull one out. I can recommend this system because it is working for me.

My Blogger Buddies (BBs) and I have come up with ideas and a couple of different styles of vision boards to help you create your own board for 2016. As you know, or perhaps you don’t, many people, and I am one, feel that creating a vision board is a sure fire way to consciously and subconsciously connect with the universe to in order to help you reach your goals. There are many methods to building vision boards. The manual way that my BBs have suggested and the virtual way, which I have chosen to try this year are a couple.

My BBs, Patricia Leitao and Kelly Mahan and I hope you will find this article useful and you will find a reason and a style to build a vision board of your own. It is always a pleasure to have Patricia and Kelly drop by The Command Center.

Vision boards are one of the easiest and most powerful tools you can use to reach your goals and dreams. If you’ve never made a vision board before, you may be wondering how a collage of images can help you achieve your goals. Vision boards work because every time you look at one you’re essentially doing a mini visualization exercise. Visualization is one of the most powerful brain exercises you can do. Professional athletes use visualization exercises all the time. As do psychologists. As you look at your vision board, you also open yourself up to the law of attraction, which basically states that what you focus on will come into your life. Now let’s find out how to make a vision board. Read the entire article here. 

Divinely Organized – How to Get Organized to Eat Clean

I have embarked on changing my eating habits. And I’ll bet you did not realize it, because I did not, but that requires a bit of organization if you do not want to be defeated before you begin.

I began my organization in my pantry. Although, I could not very well throw out all of the cookies and chips, I could and did place them on higher, out of reach shelves and replaced the regular chips with totally natural ones from my local Whole Foods. I moved stuff around to make the items that are acceptable accessible. Besides, I have grandkids who expect to find goodies when they visit MiMi, and I try to never disappoint which means I have to keep snacks on hand. :)

My cabinets were already organized. Canned goods are not an issue so there was little or nothing to do there except take inventory to determine if I needed to add any items for the winter months. You know like soups and the like, but I decided to even make my own soups from scratch. Therefore, as I said, there was little to do in the cabinets.

The refrigerator and freezer, on the other hand, were a totally different story. First I organized the freezer. I gave each category of meat a shelf of its own. I have a poultry shelf, a pork shelf, a beef shelf and a seafood shelf. There is also a miscellaneous shelf and the frozen vegetable and fruit drawer.  After organizing, I made a list of the frozen items I would need from the market to facilitate my new way of eating. Such as, frozen fruits for my smoothies and seafood. Although I am not eating any meat during the week, I will have either fish or chicken on the weekends so I needed to pick up some of that. I made my shopping list and headed out to the market.

Once back the hard job began, cleaning out the fridge. The potato salad had to go, as did the sausage and bacon (I placed both of those in the freezer). All really good leftovers had to go as well because we all know that anything that is really, really good cannot be healthy…right? :)Just kidding, a little. At any rate, anything tempting to the palate had to be either frozen or disposed of and replaced with – the good for you stuff. Read the complete article here.
