Two weeks in a row...look at me go! LOL!
OK, so I didn't get everything finished that I wanted to for today's post, but that's ok. I'm still enjoying my nice clean kitchen - it seems much easier to keep clean after doing a deep-down clean!
I'm kind of following along the Spring Cleaning plan at MomAdvice.com. She has put a lot of work in to printables for some detailed spring cleaning and I'm using them as a guide. And so far, they are following right along with FlyLady's zone schedules, so that's a bonus for me. This week is the bathroom, so I'm tackling my master bath first, and then the other one. I got a jump start by cleaning out my medicine cabinet and under my sink. I'm very happy to say it's all nice and organized now!
Here's a before pic of my medicine cabinet:
I picked up a few baskets from the dollar store to help. I've organized this cabinet so many times and it just becomes a jumbled mess again. This time I grouped like items together. The blue baskets - one for first aid supplies, one for cold/sinus/allergy meds, one for digestive stuff (antacids, fiber pills, etc.) and one for pain meds (Tylenol, etc.)
Then I used the narrow white baskets for smaller groups of items. Much better!
I forgot to take a picture of under my sink before, but trust me, it was a mess! It just had a couple of baskets and everything was just kind of tossed under there. I picked up these drawer organizers and it is much, much better! I can actually find stuff now!
My wonderful hubby brought up the spring/summer clothes and I began going through them and am slowly making the switch. All the definite winter stuff will be packed away, but due to this crazy weather, I still have to keep some long-sleeved stuff handy until it turns warm for good.
I did get Ruthi's room clean too, but I still need to go through her clothes and do the decorating projects that I want to get done.
So here's my tackle list for the week:
- Finish deep-cleaning my bathroom
- Deep clean the other bathroom
- Finish clothing switchover
- Get the projects in Ruthi's room done, and go through her clothes
- Get a jump on cleaning the master bedroom
- Clean out CJ's closet
- Work on some paper organization!
