Sunday Goals Week Nine: Time to Get Organized! (Like Batman!)


Last Week's Goals:  1. Finish Graphic Designs for my clients. 2. Finish hand-drawn button design project. 3. Complete 1 ebook rough draft  4. List at least 50 items on Etsy. Try for 100. 5. Progress on my children's illustration & pillow projects.

I'm reporting live from the Old Skool Junk art studio again! We got rained out of a second garage sale, so instead I shall make as much jewelry as possible, donate what I didn't sell, and hang with some old buddies that are in-town.

It was another busy and productive week, and I've trashed my home in the process. I'm going to focus on organizing every last supply and bit of merchandise I own. My apartment is going to be as sleek and effective as Batman's utility belt once I've finished!

Goals February 19 to February 26:

1.  Buy mini plastic storage bins, label, and store all supplies within.
2.  Go through remaining stock and deep purge for another yard sale.
3.  Spend two days hardcore apartment hunting.
4.  File taxes and file paperwork.
5.  Apartment deep-clean and streamlining.

Weeklies: ebook planning, brick & mortar business plan, grant search, DIYs, children's book line, jewelery making, blog refining, listing items for ebay and craigslist. (LOTS! I love being busy!)

Tell me your goals, join the party!

    1. Thanks for joining the party, Sherry! I love how you have dinners for the week planned, too. I'm never that organized!

  2. Ohhhh, I hate to plan ahead. I'm so a spur of the moment person, but of course my life is haphazard. I'm still settling in 7 months after the big move. That being said, to be productive you must plan. This week? The guest/office spare room.

    1. I'm finding I can sometimes work better with more flexibility and less rigid scheduling too. It's all about finding a balance.

  4. I love how we;re always trying to be more organized :)

    If I go one day without putting everything in its proper place, my apartment becomes a minefield.

    1. Mine too, literally. I'm constantly breaking and tripping over things, THIS MUST END!

  5. Despite the rain, it sounds like you have a nice day planned! It's pretty blah out over in my neck of Florida, too (probably why I'm still in my extremely un sexy Homer Simpson pajamas.) Good luck on organizing everything! Such a great feeling once it's done.

    1. I can't wait for sweet relief of true organization! I'm giving myself a week- surely I can get it done in this time!

  6. Organizing is another passion I have!! I once owned my own professional organizing business (but then my parenting duties took over) and loved helping people realize their organizational dreams could become a reality. My best piece of advice would be to have a place for everything and put it away as soon as you are done...use the touch it once rule!

    My goal for this week includes moving into my new booth and rocking it out with some new vintage and awesome prices so I can sell out and buy more!! I don't know which is funner, the seeking, buying, displaying or selling!! It's all so exciting!

    1. I MUST start applying this touch it once rule! Hopefully dedicating a week to organizing and planning will help me slay the clutter beast for good!

  7. I feel like I am constantly battling the disorganization beast!

    1. Me too! I think as resellers it's easy because more stuff MUST keep coming in to make sales. I'm going to sell much of what I own and my entire apartment will double as retail and art supply storage.

      I'm excited to get to it and live a normal life! :D Ur, normal quirky bohemian life.
