New Year's Project: Operation Fishbowl

In an effort to have more productive 'S days,' Papa and I are reinstating Operation Fishbowl. A few days into this New Year, we as a family listed projects we'd like completed around the house. We categorized them thusly:

--Fifteen Minute Projects (cleaning out junk drawers, organizing the tupperware, cleaning the fish tank, replacing the air filters...)
--One Hour Projects (cleaning out the coat closet, organizing the arts and crafts hutch, rehanging that broken curtain rod...)
--Weekend Projects (building shelves in the garage, installing outdoor lighting, reorganizing the kiddos' closet, touch up paint, re-framing...)

They are color coordinated, so when we have the appropriate chunk of time we pull a project. We made sure they were all projects that (in theory) Big B can help complete. This is the first 'S day' we've all been home without company this year, so I'm inspired to pull several! Hoping your weekend has that perfect blend of productivity, relaxation, and fresh air.

Great idea! I always have a list, but sorting them by time is really getting organized. Thanks for sharing!
