Thankfully, our house does not require any major renovations; most of the work we have to do is aesthetical. Even so, all those tidying up jobs add up and can feel quite overwhelming. So the question we asked was “where do we begin?”
|One of our artistic moments while out biking.|
The most amazing man in the world came up with a great idea last month. He suggested that during the entire month of August we should each tackle one job each day that will contribute toward the sale of our home. It doesn’t have to be anything major; we can choose to de-clutter, wash windows, paint a wall, scrub the bathtub, reorganize, move around furniture, etc. And we can spend as little or as much time as we’d like, be it 15 minutes, half a day, 3 hours...whatever we can spare. But we must do one job a day for the entire month. By the time September arrives, the “job-a-day” plan will have taken care of all the minor work and we will be free to tackle the handful of bigger jobs. And be ready to sell at the end of the month.
|Clowning around, as always.|
This plan has been set in motion and in just a few short days we are seeing positive changes. It’s amazing how even the smallest contribution can bring about such great results. And you know what else is amazing? How much crap we can accumulate over the years. Hopefully the “job-a-day” plan will obliterate most of it!
Have a lovely day, everyone.
