How’s everyone doing? Did you participate with me in the spring cleaning? I wish it brought along some spring weather with it, but unfortunately, I guess we have a few more months to wait it out!
February 23: Clean windows inside and out. I’m really hoping it’s warm enough to go outside and clean them! All of our windows need washed, though.
Score! I managed to get out there last Saturday when it was warm and get the windows cleaned inside and outside. I did not take out the screens, but only because it was still a little chilly. I do plan on taking them out, cleaning those, and cleaning the windows once spring comes!
In case you didn’t know, using newspaper to clean windows works the best! No streaks!
February 24: Clean out purse. Receipts are always in there, miscellaneous papers, grocery lists, etc.
Finished! I actually cleaned it out not too long ago so it wasn’t too bad, but still needed gone through.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who keeps snacks, headbands, and ShotBloks in their purse?!
February 25: Sweep and vacuum the entire house. This gets done more than once a month, but still, it’s nice to have a day devoted to it!
This is like a daily thing in our house. With Benson now starting to have fur to shed, we have things everywhere!
February 26: Go over items done and see what needs touched up on.
There wasn’t too much that needed redone, but I did touch up my desk, cleaned sinks, and just basically did a house cleaning which is needed about once a week regardless.
February 27: Twenty minutes of me time. Maybe read a magazine, do a new workout, drink tea and relax, take a nap. Who knows!
This happened on Wednesday, actually. Aaron went out somewhere so I took some time and went shopping! I am in need of some new work tops, and thought maybe I’d find them on clearance. I went to Kohls and Burlington, but didn’t come out with much. It was nice, though, to just have time to myself and see what’s out there! I did find 2 Essie nail polishes for half the cost! Score!
February 28: Dust, surface clean, disinfect the house. All of it. That task may take longer than 5 minutes, but it always needs done.
It didn’t take too long, but it got done, which was the main goal. Like I mentioned with Benny, it seems things are always “furrier” than usual now, and with hardwood floors, you can most definitely tell!
All in all, I really enjoyed this challenge. Some days I didn’t quite get to the chore, so I doubled up another day. I have since gotten used to taking things and putting them where they go. If they don’t have a home, they get tossed. I have really been getting into the organizing mindset, and love when I find any new ways to organize. It also got me up and moving during the long winter nights when snow or cold temps hit us everyday. I’m not making a daily schedule for March, but I am going to think of small things that can be done to make an impact. These chores really only took a few minutes out of my day, and that’s something I can deal with! It’s much needed for peace of mind, too!
Let me know if you participated and recapped yours so I can check it out! Have a great Saturday everyone!
