Setting a Schedule / Curating my Closet

Starting a new job means having the opportunity to start new routines. It's much needed in my household - we (rather I) have become a little more slovenly and lazy around here these last few weeks.

I have three goals:
1. Keep the apartment a little more organized
2. Do my share of the cooking
3. Resume the Couch to 5K routine (cold weather has side lined it)

Add to that the usual weekly duties (grocery shopping, blogging, date night) and I've decided to devote a chore to each day

Sunday: Blog writing
Monday: Running
Tuesday: Groceries (& cooking)
Wednesday: Running
Thursday: Laundry (& cooking)
Friday: Running & Date night
Saturday: Cleaning (& cooking)

Here's hoping it's evenly spread, so I'm not spread too thin!

Blue Plaid Shirt

Why did I buy it?
I didn't - I swapped it from a friend. 

Why did it work? It's one of a few print shirts in my closet, and I enjoyed the blue with the pink in it. 

Why didn't it work? It's a little short, informal, and I got a little bored with it. 

How did I wear it?

What will happen to it? I've heard rumour of a Winnipeg clothing swap... maybe it will go there!

And just an update - while it's all good of me to take these "curating my closet" items out of rotation, I should announce that I finally took them out of my apartment. A full garbage bag of clothing (including some of Scott's) was dropped off at the thrift store this last weekend!


  1. We're trying the Couch to 5K program this year too! And have also had trouble getting going due to weather. Sigh.

    Yay for getting rid of a bag! I hope you get to do a clothing swap, that would be fun!

  2. I'm doing the Couch to 5k to jumpstart my 1/2 marathon training! =) I used it last year when I ran my first 5k, too. I love it!!

  3. So wait, you got a new job? I'm so behind. I know you were looking.

    Doesn't it feel good to get rid of lots of clothes? :) It looks like you got a lot of use out of that shirt though, and it was great on you.

  4. Goodluck getting back to running! Hope your new schedule works out. I need to start scheduling things a little better, maybe it would help with my extreme absentmindedness lately.


Thanks for stopping by! Let me know what you think!
