40 days of organization, my first 20 days...

Today I read a post from my sister on Facebook where she was taking a challenge to do 40 days of organization. I am inspired as that is one of my New Year's resolutions to get more organized to maintain my mental health. I told her I would work on my list today so here is my 40 days of organization list and we are going to check in on Wednesdays and Sundays so I think that is when I'll try to get back to the blog to update as well.
