Change It Up Challenge: Extension


Well folks, I had good intentions.

Really, I did.

And I wasn't doing too bad on my goals for last month's Change It Up Challenge either--I was finally getting into some daily habits that really were starting to make a difference in the cleanliness and organization of our home.

Then distaster struck:

Roaches.

In our neighbors' apartments.

Luckily, we didn't have any. But we still had to get sprayed like we did.

The pictures you see is the CIU Challenge at its lowest point (the picture below was of Matt playing a game in the only spot in the entire apartment that was wide enough to fit a chair).

So I'm asking for an extension on my Change It Up Challenge. I hate failing, and keeping a clean and orderly home is something I really want to be good at.

I'd love some suggestions on how to go about doing it: I'm already in the process of trying out some (like designating a specific chore to each day of the week).

Forgive me for not having a better report after my first month's attempt.

Month 2 will be better.

I hope.

  1. Okay, first of all, one important word...totes. They stack on top of each other, fit together, various sizes. Plus you can buy them in a different color for each classification of stuff. Like, I have all my baby stuff I'm not using in yellow, all my holiday stuff in red, stuff that is just storage, in gray. I also have a label maker to mark everything...but I realize as I right this how much my OCD is showing....wow.
