"And when she was risen up to glean, Boaz commanded his young men,
saying, Let her glean even among the sheaves,
and reproach her not: And let fall also some of the handfuls of purpose for her, and leave them, that she may glean them, and rebuke her not." Ruth 2:15, 16
Have you been on Pinterest lately? (Ok, so, that was a rhetorical question :) ) I saw this idea on Pinterest and it was one of those moments when you say....... oh...... as in DUH! I see all these things in my house that need to be done and I never get to them.
Confession .... it's usually because I'm...
1) Lazy: by being on Pinterest too long ;)
2) Forget like 5 minutes after I think about it
3) I don't notice it
4) I don't have a list in front of me of what needs to be done
Take a sheet of notebook paper,
Write "40 Days of Organization" at the top
Number the page 1-40
List everything you want to get done
Pick 1 task a day!

Yes, I have a few blank spaces! I can't think of anything else right off so I figured I'd find some to add as I went along!
