7 Spots in 7 Days Challenge

I recently came across the blog, A bowl full of lemons,on pinterest and fell in love. On the blog, they have a 21 Day Organizing Challenge and I decided I was going to take the challenge! The challenge lists one space to organize each day for 21 days. I read the list and realized I didn't have half of the spaces that were listed in our little 2-bedroom apartment. Then, a couple days later, my friend Ali came up with the idea to do "7 Spots in 7 Days," and so this little challenge was born!

Here's the deal: my husband knows I have a hard time with consistence. He is the most disciplined person ever, but I, on the other hand struggle to stick to a plan. I KNOW I can do 7 days though. That's only a week. I can do it.

I am going to lay some ground rules:
1. Don't make it harder than it needs to be. Keep it simple and don't make it too time consuming. Let's get real here, no one wants to spend ALL DAY organizing one little space (Okay, maybe I do, but not most people).
2. Stick to a schedule and make someone hold you accountable. (Clay, this means you.)
3. Have fun with it and get creative!

Alright, let's get to it. Here are the "spots" I am going to organize in the next 7 days:
Day 1: Dresser Drawers
Day 2: Linen Closet
Day 3: Bathroom Cabinets
Day 4: Refrigerator
Day 5: Silverware Drawer
Day 6: My Closet
Day 7: Entertainment Center

I am going to be posting what I have done for the next 7 days.
We'll see how it goes!


  1. I love this idea! Can't wait to see your pics. I am going to do this in our new house!

    1. Thanks, Diana! You should def do it in your new house, but I still want to come help you organize/decorate!

  2. Can't wait to see these every day! I definitely need help with these kinds of things!

  3. Awesome! You can do it!! Maybe I'll try that too :)

    1. You should do it and you could blog about it... and direct everyone over to my blog to read about it... haha... just a thought.
