This week I focused on two spaces that needed a large burst of energy rather than a quick clean up: the kids’ room and clothing and craft storage. I also cleaned up my purse and a nightstand, and focused on keeping the laundry going and keeping things put away.
Shortly after I wrote last week’s progress post, I got to work cleaning out the kids’ room: their closet, drawers, room, and bins in the attic. Sure the room was clean, but drawers and closet were far from it.
To avoid getting intimidated like the week before, I pulled everything out and organized it.
Little by little it all got done and everything was put away. And a week later, it’s still all put away and clean!
On Tuesday night, some of the girls in our facebook group had a little challenge. We all got up off the couch, did a load of laundry, and cleaned a tiny spot. I tackled our nightstand, and while I didn’t have a bag, the spot was clean!
One of the spots I was putting off was the craft and décor storage. I have three drawers in the hallway that were overflowing but now are organized and semi-empty:
I also tackled the crafts and décor stored in the basement calling my name.
I spent about 2 hours (kid potty breaks and interruptions included) and knocked it out. I’ve spent much longer worrying about cleaning the space! I can see the tools, paint, and home improvement stuff looking at me, but that’s next. 😉
3 bags of garbage, 1 bag of fabric, 2 bags of stuff to be donated/sold. I also filled a bag with craft supplies that were never used or taken out of the bag that I can return.
to wrap up the week, I cleaned out my purse while on a train ride and filled a quart-sized bag 🙂
11 bags total!
