    My bedroom is decluttered and even rearranged!  I needed some change and thanks to eco challenge I am improving areas of my life in a fun and proactive way!

    Instead of setting my alarm 20 minutes earlier than I want to get out of bed just so I can hit snooze a couple times, I am going to make a point of not hitting snooze at all.  I will use that "snooze time" to get 20 minutes of more sleep.  I never actually fall back asleep after hitting my snooze button, so I feel this is a good challenge for me.  Also, at night when I am contemplating going to bed, I won't think twice.  That should save me at least five or ten minutes.  If and when I start asking myself, "should I go to bed yet?" it means I am getting tired and my answer should  be "yes" anyways!
