    Finally ready to start on the grand plan although I am behind but wouldn’t take long to catch up as I have fewer rooms than listed.
    Master bedroom will be this week and next for me. No weekend to do it as I have to do my renewal for Inst aid.

    sock drawer
    Sweater drawer
    Bookcases
    Computer desk
    Files
    Closet
    Clean mirrors
    Dust
    Spot clean walls
    Vacuum
    Cedar chest—dust outside and tidy inside once I pull out the fall wall hanging and the table runners.

    Master bedroom is in a few week for me. I follow the plan but swap the rooms around to suit our home.

    I am always a little surprised at how much stuff one man can put into a dresser drawer :eek:
    Spent more time than I thought should be required finding matches to socks and trying to make sense on how the testosterone based life form in my home gets dressed in the morning based upon the items I did or did not find in his wardrobe!

    Made progress on clothing front, made lists on what needs to be purchased and tossed more than a few items.

    We are doing the master bedroom/bathroom later this week. DH and I took a couple days off from work so we are going to pull all the small stuff (declutter and purge as we go along) out and repaint both the master bedroom and bathroom. We have been in our house almost 4 years and never really did anything with our bedroom and bathroom so it will be nice to have all done before the holidays.

    We found that using the small laundry mesh bags they sell at the store for socks has really saved our sanity when it came to matching socks. Everyone in the house has 2 of these bags, one for white socks and for color. Socks come off and go right into the bag. On laundry day the bags get zipped up and tossed into the washer/dryer.

    Washed the blankets (for both bedrooms) this weekend. Remade our bed with fall bedding set. Summer comforter is washed and dried, just need to transfer to storage bag and put away upstairs. I'm going to put some lavender essential oil on something and put that in with the bedding somehow. Just don't want to get the oil on the fabric. But that will make it smell super good when I get it out again in the spring!

    Minta I like the idea of 2 mesh bags for each person.

    It made things so much easier for us as it greatly reduced the lost socks syndrome ;), no more matching up the wrong socks as my daughter and I at one time had similar looking socks.

    Minta, I too like the sock bag idea. Might consider that for DS who is constantly losing socks.

    Minta, I agree about the sock bags. They wash and dry right in the mesh bags.

    Got the master bed/bath painted last week and new curtains and shower curtains up. Got a few things up on the walls but still have a lot more to do. We have unexpected but welcomed company for the week so everything else has been put on hold.
