Have you noticed I haven't written about zone cleaning for a while? It's just the dailies getting done around here recently - meals, laundry, Sparkle & Shine. But sometimes the messes push me right over the edge and I find myself doing An Accidental Clean (Rebecca's term).
Last Saturday, I needed the hole punch and I was afraid that it was at the bottom of the children's drawer.
I meant to have Genevieve work with me, to show her a little organizational methodology, but I just couldn't bear it any longer so I ripped into it and made a very efficient job of it. . . .
until I realized the markers had no boxes or containers anymore. The short story is that the markers remained on top of the dining room buffet, a visual to-do list, until I sewed a marker roll for them.
I am a wife and mother of two. I am a stay-at-home mom, a Mennonite, and a city dweller. I like to make things (see the blog categories below). This blog is a record of what I make and the ways I try to be thrifty. Welcome!
"Thrift is the really romantic thing; economy is more romantic than extravagance...thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste...if a man could undertake to make use of all the things in his dustbin, he would be a broader genius than Shakespeare."
