Weekly Cleaning Challenge | Clean Your Doors

March 27, 2018

Quick: how many doors do you have in your house? The husband and I have 20 in doors in our house. We have three bedrooms, a sun room, a storage room, 7 closets, a laundry room, and 3 bathrooms.  For some reason there is a door from our entry way to our kitchen.  So many doors. Doors are great.  They keep air in.  They keep light out.  They make it easy to hide stuff you…

March 20, 2018

Ceiling fans: machines that help to keep us cool during warm months and provide a gentle hum to help guide us to sleep at night.  Also known as eyesores of decor.  They may be practical and necessary, but pretty they are not.  They look even worse when they have dust flinging off of them as you are trying to sleep.  For this week’s cleaning challenge, I am challenging you to clean your ceiling fans. WEEK…

Weekly Cleaning Challenge | Clean Behind Washing Machine & Dryer

February 26, 2018

My laundry room is not the prettiest room in my house. It is beige.  There are large holes in the walls from where the husband and I took down some shelves. The washing machine is on the right instead of the left.  The light switch is in the closet across from the dryer.  This means that I have to enter the room, open a closet door, and then turn on the light.  Such a pain.…

Weekly Cleaning Challenge | Clean Bed Pillows

February 21, 2018

Even before I left for college, I was one of those young adults that washed my sheets every week.  I had a duvet cover over my down comforter; I washed it every month.  I ate in bed a lot.  I washed it when the inevitable spills would occur.  I also used a new towel every time I took a shower.  Looking back, I washed a lot more laundry than the typical college student. I was…

I heard someone talking about New Year’s resolutions today.  They were saying that most people make it to the second week of February before they give up on their resolutions.  I am proud to say that I am still going strong.  In fact, I am starting to wrap in some additional aspects of my goal such as exercising more and eating less sugar. For those of you that are new to the blog, I have…

Weekly Cleaning Challenge | Clean the Silverware Drawer

January 17, 2018

  I have lived in my home for almost two years.  Facebook sent me a fun little reminder of a post from two years ago; it was our announcement that the husband and I had bought a home. Now that we have been in our home for awhile, we are officially out of the unpacking stage and into the collecting stage of home ownership. What is the collecting stage?  The collecting stage is after you have…
