Cleaning & Organizing Cleaning & Organizing

Making This House A Home, Part 2

Hi ladies!

I've been working little by little around the house to get things done, but not getting very far.  I spoke with a potential online school yesterday and had forms to fill out, etc, etc.

There is still plenty to do.  We are working on what I call "The Pick Up Process" which means getting everything picked up off of the floor, not including sweeping/scrubbing/mopping.  So today's goal is to get "The Pick Up Process" completed, and move into the cleaning process.  I have a load of laundry to do(I would do more but we only have enough detergent for one load until tomorrow) and plenty of dishes.

I am also going to shop my cupboards and freezers, and make a menu.

So very cool, keep the motivation up. I've been doing very well with that part. The heat is killing me though. Sounds like you have a really good process going.

I wish I could do the cupboard thing. My husband changes his mind daily and depending on the heat nightly. But he'll also cook it.

It feels good getting started doesn't it?! Just stick with it and do baby steps and it will all come together :)

Yay for getting going. I shop my cabinets and freezer to make my menu also then put down what I need from the store. Hope you get the pick up part complete.

Hoping for this supposed cold front to come through.  I'm ready for the storm to come and possibly cool us down.  Although the last couple of storms have not helped as far as the heat or humidity :/

I find an inventory of 'what we already have' in food is SO helpful... to save money, to eat a wider variety of foods, to avoid waste.

I have a similar thing  - I call it "Tidying"  Basically putting everything away with out doing any actual cleaning.  It's amazing how nice a house can look when it's tidy (even when it's not clean)!
