Let’s Get Organized for the Weekend with Finish It Friday

Happy Friday my friends! I hope you had a fantastic week. It’s time again already to get organized for the weekend and share our Fun + Done lists. What’s on tap for you this weekend? Here’s what’s up for me:


Checklist-copyright-simplify101Fun

  • Run in The Race for a Cure. I’m super excited about doing this with Kailea. But I'm afraid I'm going to be challenged to keep up with her! She started cross country a couple of weeks ago...and let's just say she's clocked way more miles in the last two weeks than me. So wish me luck! :)

Done

  • Laundry.
  • Clean. Very light and minimal cleaning.
  • Pack. Kailea and I are headed to Michigan for a couple of days next week. (We leave on Sunday.) The trip is kind of spontaneous, so there’s lots to do to get ready, including packing and getting other things settled (paperwork, bills paid, etc.) I’ll be relying heavily on my travel checklist!
  • Do a Target run.
  • Register for one more summer camp.


I'm keeping the list pretty light this weekend, since I really will only have one weekend day...and the other one will be spent traveling! Also, since I’m going to be gone on Monday, I’m not going to do a separate post for the Monday check in, but instead I’ll ask you to post your progress reports in the comments of this post. K? I think based on your comments the other way works better, so I’ll move in that direction in upcoming weeks. (But this week I need to keep it simple.) Sound like a plan?

 

Alright…now it’s your turn. What’s on your list this weekend? Hope you have a great one!

Signature
P.S. Just a quick reminder that now through Monday you can sample the entire first lesson of Organize Your Paper Clutter on us! Go here for the details, but hurry—sample access ends at 9 PM Central Monday, June 25.
