Getting things done......

My laundry is basically a closet....an extra wide and deep closet that is located at the top of the back staircase. When we built our house, we opted for the closet vs a laundry room in order to make the staircase 2 story, with a cute little balcony. Boy were we dumb......sure wish I could go back and have a laundry room, but whatever. So I've never done anything with the closet.......just a washer and dryer with the standard builder wire shelf over it. And finally after 19 yrs, I've decided it needs sprucing up. So I have painted it......and then bought the nice utility cabinets from Lowes. Johnny promises to have them up by this weekend........


these are the cabinets minus the doors and they are white...not yellow as they look in the picture.

and this is the one that will go on the end. see the bottom part....that has a pole for hanging clothes on.

these are the doors to the cabinets

And I have also been working on getting my giveaway ready.....my 500th post!!! I will give you 2 hints........one involves the number 50 and the other involves the picture below.....

but that's just 2 things............I want 5 things in my giveaway so I need to come up with a few more items.

later...........

YOU will be uplifted when your laundry room gets it's facelift. It will actually make the chore more enjoyable...for a while. ;)

Are you looking for suggestions for more giveaway prizes? Here are some good ones:

1. A weekend cruise to the Bahamas
2. Maid service for a month
3. Paid decorating consultation service for every room in your home.

I think lots of people would be VERY interested in these types of things...

I'm helpful like that.

If you’d like a tool for managing your time and projects, you can use this application inspired by David Allen’s GTD:

http://www.Gtdagenda.com

You can use it to manage and prioritize your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, schedules and a calendar.
Comes with a mobile version too, and with an Android app.
