Things I Want to Do Before September Is Over

So I know that this is going up really late in the month and there’s only a few days left in September, but that’s okay! These are things I’d like to get done over the next few days.

This won’t be talking about the books I want to read or shows I want to watch, but more life stuff. You’ll see when I get into them.


Organize My Son’s Bookshelf

My son’s bookshelf is a giant mess. I have just shoved books on there since we first started getting him “big kid” books. So one goal that I have is to go through and take some of the books off of it to put in our Little Free Library in my town. Well, one of them. We have two. One by our park for kids books and one more in town for other books. I need to make a journey down there and put some more books in there. Maybe I’ll convince my husband to go with me one day.

Go Through Bookish Merch

This is really focused on my candles. I have a ton of bookish candles that I just don’t burn. They are just taking up space at this point. I have a weird thing about not burning my bookish candles that I need to get over. So one of my main things is that I need to go through all of this stuff and decide what I’m going to keep and what I’m going to get rid of.

Add Stuff to My Bullet Journal

So, my bullet journal is very minimalistic and list-y. I really only use it for lists. I want to add in some pages for TV shows that I want to watch and movies. As well as pages for my weekly updates. I find that I end up forgetting to talk about something if I don’t write it down, so I want to have pages where I can write down the stuff that I want to talk about in those posts.

If you have any other page ideas, let me know! I like having one BuJo for each year, so I have like half of mine to use up before the end of the year.


Plan How To Get My House Organized

If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you know that this is something I’ve been saying for a while now. But I really need to. I plan on taking the rest of this month to make a plan. Figure out where to start and how to reach the end goal of having an organized house. I know it’s going to take longer than a few days to get my house organized, but I definitely want to do it by the end of the year.

Get Another Plant

Okay! This is really where you all come in. I really want another house plant. I have tried growing food but man. That has not been working out. So I’m going to mention some things that I am looking for in a plant and you all give me some recommendations!

First, I need one that will work in a tiny apartment. I don’t have a ton of room, so no tree plants.

Second, I’d like something that is good if I miss a day of giving it light. There are some times that I just want to sit in the dark, so I don’t open my shades where my plants are. Thankfully my current plants are good missing a day of sunlight.

The last thing I’m really looking for is a bigger plant. I know that kind of defeats the first point, but I want something bigger this time around. All my plants are small. I have a succulent, a satin pothos, and a dracaena fragrans (also known as a corn plant according to the app I used to figure out the name of it again). Which I’m starting to debate whether the last one is real or not. It doesn’t seem to be growing or dying. No matter what I do! I know it’s alive because I’ve noticed slight changes within the leafs, but that’s it.

Anyway, I’d really love a plant that I could have on the floor. Make sure to comment if you have any recommendations! I’m really thinking a monstera. Those things are so pretty.


And that’s really it for today! Comment below with some things you want to do before the end of the month! If you’re reading this after September, ask if I did any of these things 😂

Thank you all so much for joining me! I’ll see you all very soon with another post.

  1. It’s been a long time since I used a Bullet Journal (I switched to a Japanese planner because I like the paper) but when I was using one, I would often look on Pinterest for page layout ideas. I hope you figure out what you want to include!

    1. Pinterest was my friend when I was trying to use it for creative layouts. But I realized that it didn’t work for me. I spent too much time on it and didn’t like the outcome. So I just stick with looking up lists on there that people include. Pinterest is the best 😂
