30 Minutes or Less – Candles

For a quick Sunday afternoon organization project, I gathered my candle boxes.

Yikes! Not good! I quickly sorted through what I will and will not use, and of course, got rid of those I won’t use. Then I neatly placed them back into the boxes, added labels (printable from Better Homes and Gardens). Done and back on the shelf in less than 20 minutes.

  

30 Minutes or Less – Command Center Maintenance

I love my new(-ish) command center. The great thing about it is that it cuts down on my maintenance time for all my paper work. But it does require some servicing from time to time. For today’s less than 30 minute task, I hit my “in-use” box. This is the box where I store all the things that I am using and want to keep at my finger-tips — Bible Study materials, magazines and books I’m reading, and the home-management binder.  My first task was to sort through and pull out what I am no longer using. I admit I kept throwing magazines in there, and I had a stack I had long-since finished.

I quickly sorted into “Recycle” and “File”, then did accordingly. Next I attacked my home-management binder. When short on time, rather than hole-punching and filing under the appropriate divider, I had some papers I stuck in front.

I quickly sorted these, hole-punched and inserted them into the binder. Then I went through the binder and pulled out papers that were out-dated or I no-longer needed. Task complete, it only took about 15 minutes, and my command center is looking neat again.
