I have been so busy that I have let a lot of things go the last few months. Which leads me to feel overwhelmed and sad that my house is not where I would like it to be. When I look at the HUGE list of things I would like to get done, I don’t want to even start… so instead I am going to tackle one thing at a time and give myself a little extra time each day to get the extra chore done. By the end of the month I should have my list completed! Anyone want to join me on the 31 days to a clean fresh start in 2013 challenge?
Day 1 ~ Clean out my dresser and get rid of any clothes I have not worn in the last year, and donate them to charity.
Day 2 ~ Organize the refrigerator and wash all the shelves and drawers inside.
Day 3 ~ Clean the hall closet, sort shoes, coats and jackets and donate any that no longer fit.
Day 4 ~ Clean out the linen closet, match the sheet sets then fold them and store them in the matching pillow case.
Day 5 ~ Clean my desk, file cabinet and file away all the papers for 2012
Day 6 ~ Since today is Sunday and I try to keep cleaning and extra tasks to a minimum my goal today is to make a journal entry, and send out some thank you card that are past due.
Day 7 ~ Clean underneath my stove and refrigerator…been awhile so I am sure I have some fuzzy friends waiting for the steam mop to say hello!
Day 8 ~ Wash and clean all the mirrors in the house (add a few windows if time allows)
Day 9 ~ Wash the baseboards and molding around the doors, Mr. Clean Magic Erasers make this job much easier.
Day 10 ~ Wash all the doors and door knobs, if need touch them up with paint.
Day 11 ~ Take down the curtains in the house and wash them, wash the windows they were on.
Day 12 ~ Steam mom the kitchen floor and put a clear coat sealant on the hardwood floors.
Day 13 ~ Since today is Sunday and I try to keep cleaning and extra tasks to a minimum my goal today is to make cookies with the kids and bring them to our elderly neighbor next door.
Day 14 ~ Clean my window blinds…. so many tiny wooded boards to clean LOL
Day 15 ~ Take the covers of my couch and wash them. The ones that do not have covers “give them a good scrub down”
Day 16 ~ Wash all the light switches, door knobs and closet doors in the house. I was noticing mine are looking a little dingy thanks to little fingers
Day 17~ Clean all the garbage cans, I know it seems like an oxymoron but man they are getting rather dirty and need a good scrub down
Day 18~ Sort and stack my kids bookshelf
Day 19 ~ Take all my recycling to the recycling center
Day 20 ~Since today is Sunday and I try to keep cleaning and extra tasks to a minimum my goal today is to try a new recipe from the stack of “TRY THESE RECIPES I have piled up” it will get at least one more off the pile LOL.
Day 21 ~ Vacuum the stairs and wash the hand rail
Day 22 ~ Clean my oven (it has a self clean but it still needs a good scrubbing)
