It seems the spring cleaning bug bit me a little late this year but better late than never! Yesterday I made a list of all the places that collect junk around the house. We are tackling them one by one—doing smaller jobs during the week and saving the bigger ones for the weekend.
This has also extended to the Garages and basement. We would love to make a little area in the basement as an emergency shelter but we also have to have room for seasonal storage and the fireplace. Did I mention our basement is just two rooms—the first room holds the water heater and water filter the second the furnace and fireplace. It isn’t a finished basement just a small concrete canning basement.  

I love getting rid of clutter! It makes me feel more free and able to breathe easier! I get excited at the thought of organization! It’s silly I know, but I have always been a fan of everything having a place!

Monday we organized the kitchen—junk drawer, drawers, candle cabinet, above refrigerator and under the stink.
Tuesday—the cedar chest at the foot of the bed, drawers, and closet in bedroom.
Wednesday—the bathroom. Under the sink all three closets and drawers. A big job!
Thursday—class night
Friday—living room closet and coffee table drawers and pantry.

Duste’s job is to deal with the garages and basement. She is working on the garages this week and on Friday she will work on the basement.

By the end of this week we should be clutter free!! I think I hear singing…..

  1. clutter is like a dirty animal, it breeds in the dark when your not looking. A good rule is for every new thing you get toss something old out.
