The Better Home Challenge for 2012

A new challenge for the new year!

The 2011 UFO challenge was such a motivational success for me, I'm curious to see if the same idea might help me to finish a few home improvement projects in 2012. It's worth a try! Care to join me? Here are some guidelines...

1. Start with a list of 12 rooms, areas, or specific projects in your home that need your attention. It can be anything from cleaning, to organizing, to decorating, to remodeling. (My list will definitely include some of each!)

2. On the first of each month I'll draw a number, and that will be the project to work on for the month. In some cases, you may need to switch project numbers, i.e, an outdoor area may have to wait for a warmer month, or one area may affect another so the work needs to be done in a certain order. In other words, the number drawn will give you focus and a place to start. Where you go from there is entirely up to you!

3. On the last day of the month, there will be an update post where everyone can link up, share their progress on their blogs, and motivate each other with encouraging comments. The more who join in, the better the motivation. ;o)

So, are you up for the challenge? Just create a blog post with your twelve home improvement projects for 2012 and then link up here, directly to that post (not to your main blog link), then check back here on January 1, 2012 for the first number drawing. I can hardly believe it, but I'm actually looking forward to getting started! LoL
