Assignment: Shop 'til you drop!
This weekend is the tipping point between the planning and the executing stage of the Cure and you don't want anything holding you back once you get started on your projects. Trust me: last minute roller runs just aren't that much fun! Get your shopping list in hand and start crossing things off...
Today's Assignment: Calling all shoppers!
• Do your best to gather the all the "project" items such as paint, tools and supplies on your list by Monday. I know it's tempting to take the weekend off but the time you spend now is crucial. Nothing adds to the success potential of a project more that starting off prepared. Knowing that you have everything you need before you settle in to work makes a huge difference. Calculate how much paint and fabric you need, double check your stock of other supplies at home and then go, go, go.
• If you are shopping for specific products such as furniture or accessories, don't rush. This is the perfect time to really dig into the marketplace and start making those purchasing decisions, but if you don't see what you are looking for this weekend, don't feel pressured into accepting second-best - just keep looking. You still have plenty of time.
