Welcome to week four of the Spring 2016 Love Your Home Challenge! It’s been fun seeing so many of you participating in the daily challenges. Just a little nudge is often all we need to make progress. And of course, working together on a challenge always makes it more fun! We have a little over a week left, and it is never too late to join in! Start where we are or go back and start from whatever day speaks to you. Or personalize the challenges to suit what you need to focus on! Don’t forget to use your gratitude journal to jot down ideas and thoughts.
Day 22 – Twenty Little Things: Today, make a list of 20 little things you love about this season of your life in your home. Display the list in your home or put it in your home notebook. Add to it throughout the day when you think of something else that sparks a sense of gratitude! I dare you to stop at 20 things you love!
Day 23 – Happy Surprises: Add a little joy to your day by lining the dresser or desk drawer you use most often with spring-inspired scrapbook paper or pretty wrapping paper. You’ll be delighted every time you open it!
Day 24 – Your Handbag: The state of your purse can impact your daily tasks! Today, do a little spring cleaning of your handbag. Toss out any gum wrappers or unnecessary items. Organize makeup and receipts. Add a cute new pocket notebook for jotting down quick notes or ideas!
Day 25 – Living Room Wish List: Do you enjoy spending time in your living room? Start a living room wish list. Do you have all the basics you need? What more could you add or update in this space this spring to make it more comfortable or inviting? Add your list to your home notebook.
Day 26 – Make It Happen: Pick just one project in your home that you can finish completely today or at least make great progress on. You’ll feel refreshed and inspired that you finally made a dent on that nagging project!
Day 27 – Order in the Kitchen: Today we are going to focus on pantry organization. Toss out the old, repackage and label bulk items, wipe off and tidy the shelves. Make your pantry prettier and more orderly!
Day 28 – Your Color Personality: What are your favorite colors? Today, consider how could you incorporate more of the colors you love into your decorating. Could you paint a dresser, add new throw pillows, or start a collection of dessert dishes in your favorite hue? Being surrounded by colors you love can improve your mood and even change the way you feel in your home!
