I can’t believe this is the third week already! I swear February just started but this is the last week for my challenge! On that note, this week was rough. There were numerous things that came up and kept me busy, but I conquered through them! Let’s see how I did!
February 15: Murphy’s Oil the floors. Oops! This was a total fail. We ended up going into the hospital and running errands which took longer than we thought and I ran out of time. It was hard to motivate myself to do it on Sunday because it wasn’t a fun job, and we were busy then, too! I’m really hoping to get it done though this weekend!
February 16: Organize the hall closet. Go through, remove things, find new homes for them, place things in containers and put back.
Before: A huge mess. Seriously, so bad. I hated even opening it.
After: Things are in bins, it’s easier to access, and looks pretty!
February 17: Go through the junk on my desk. Honestly, I straightened my desk last week and it was another wreck!
Before: Piles of papers, things without a home, papers that needed thrown out.
After: All organized. Papers are put where they need to go or thrown away. The bag full of miscellaneous things was put away.
February 18: Organize Benson’s toys.
Before: Benson has too many toys and they take away my house.
After: I put most of his toys in a bin and hid it under a table in our hallway so you can’t see them!
February 19: Organize desk. Again, put things where they need to go, file bills in the filing cabinet, etc.
Before: Once I threw papers away and looked through the stuff, I went through the desk. I actually did this the same day as I went through the junk because I was on a roll.
After: Look above!
February 20: Clean out shoes. Ugh, I will dread this one! I don’t exactly know where to put all my shoes, but need to come up with something!
Before: This was hard. I had shoes all over the guest room and it drove me nuts. Thankfully Aaron didn’t even notice until a few weeks ago that my boots were all hiding beside the bed Sorry there is no picture. I started attacking things in the room before snapping a pic (plus it was so horrendous I’m glad I don’t have one, haha)
After: I made room in the closet for them by cleaning out and moving things out of there so now the door can shut and I don’t see anything now!
February 21: Go through PJs. I am sure there are some in there that need thrown out, or at least washed again, and folded. I tend to wear the same two or three pairs, but I own way more than that.
Before: Big ‘ol pile of clothes.
After: Still a big ‘ol pile of clothes but at least they are folded I also got rid of some that I no longer wear/need. There’s obviously way more I don’t need, but I can’t part with, haha
February 22: Clean and organize the basement shelves. I’m ahead on this one! Already finished this today so here’s hoping I can get the floors done from last week!
Before: Random things all over the shelves. I hated looking at it or not knowing where things were.
After: I bought these pretty pink bins from the dollar store and used them to organize the different areas. I have baking things in one, some condiments in another, tea in another, etc. It just looks cleaner to me! I actually want to head back and get a few more containers to put things in and even stack on top of the other.
I’m hoping to tackle the floors this weekend and clean out my car that I was supposed to do two weeks ago since it’s supposed to be in the 50s today!
