After returning from our six week stay staycation in New Mexico I was on a mission to get our house cleaned up, organized and purged! I was afraid it was going to be a slow going process because I had a week full of activities to catch up with friends here in Texas BUT I ended up being stuck at home because Kangaroo and Monkey have a summer cold. So I got busy yesterday on the center of the house… the kitchen, dining room, and living room!
In the kitchen I went through all the cabinets, wiped down all counters, cabinet doors, base boards, cleaned out the fridge and freezer, wiped it all down, bleached the sink, and wiped down the walls and doors.
I also went through the pantry, reorganized it, purged old stuff and added a few bins to help with lunch meal prep plus a bin for quick kid snacks.
In the living room I cleaned the base boards, cleared out old baby gear, simplified Kangaroo’s toys, rearranged the furniture and wiped down the walls and doors.
Between our kitchen and living room is a little counter with cabinets which serves as our junk drawers, miscellaneous items, and displays pictures and cookbooks. I cleaned it all out and purged a ton of stuff!
Not much was needed in the dining room because it stays clean with us eating 2+ meals there a day. I did wipe the door ways and base boards plus changed up the decor I was displaying and wiped down all the furniture.
So all in all it was a very productive day! Three rooms down and five more to go. Hubby came home and said I looked like the energizer bunny. 😉
