15 MINUTE ORGANIZING: A POWERFUL WAY TO GET THINGS DONE
It's amazing what can be accomplished in 15 minutes. We've all got 4 of these blocks of time in every hour. I know, that's obvious to everyone else, but to me this is a epiphany of sorts... It is incredibly easy to blow 15 minutes: checking updates on facebook, admiring organizing ideas on Pinterest or, for me, playing Risk on my (secondhand) iPad.
BUT, what could I accomplish if I took just one of those 15 minute blocks of time each day to improve something in my home?
Well, I've tried it for a couple of weeks now and I'm hooked! (I'm groaning at myself as I type this, on account of this post, which is about hooks. You groaning now, too?)

My 15 Minute task today is something that has been bothering me for 5 years. Five years of irritation gone in 15 Minutes! It's a little bit embarrassing, but this has been our "storage solution" for our family's lunch bags...
To start, we cleaned the wall with rubbing alcohol and let it dry. I then put a tiny pencil mark where I wanted the top of the hook.

Then we just followed the directions... Much better, right?! Such a simple project. 15 minutes just erased 5 years of frustration and embarrassment. The reason we're so dressed up in the photos is that we did this after work on a weekday while making supper. It was that easy.
