Jump Off the Ladder: Starting day four

Today I washed all of our dishes. It took me 5 minutes flat!

Really exciting things have been happening in the first few days of the challenge! Here’s our recap:

  • Leslie has begun pricing and tagging her newly-downsized baskets
  • Carrie has totally cleaned out and restocked her pantry
  • Lynne stood strong in the face of temptation, choosing a bagel over Lucky Charms for breakfast
  • Alyssa found some great frozen dinner options at Costo to support her decision to cook at home more
  • Taylor was happy to find that she has a lot more free time now that she’s washing fewer dishes

If you want a shout-out in the daily recap, let me know in the comments how your challenge is going! Also, if you blog about the challenge on your own site, I may reblog your article. 🙂

  1. Not much will happen for me today. It’s a 9am – 9pm work day! But, tomorrow is grocery shopping day. I will check my list before I go so I don’t buy something we already have, and will only buy what’s on the list for this week.

    great job, everyone! 😉

  2. This morning, thanks to your inspiration, I put 20 things in a box to donate and 20 things in the garbage. (I only operate in 20s 🙂 All were items from our storage room. There was one casualty – I accidentally bumped an ice skate off the shelf and it fell onto a flourescent light. This is why we need to get rid of stuff!! I didn’t even make a dent with my efforts today and the two boxes of “treasures” my parents brought me from their basement yesterday are conspiring against me, but I know that if I stick with it, I eventually will start to see progress. . . right?
