Coming Clean: Week Three

Posted By Jessica Fisher On July 7, 2009 @ 3:28 am In Cleaning | 3 Comments


As I mentioned yesterday [5], my summer plans have taken a detour. One of the things that has been redirected is my effort to clean our house top to bottom. It sure is taking me longer than I anticipated. So much for going through the whole house in two weeks’ time. But, better now then right before we move. I’ve got renewed motivation, even though my desire is a little lagging. (I don’t wanna move…. but dragging my feet isn’t going to stop it from happening.)

Last week I worked on the kitchen. I went through all the cupboards and pulled out things that I don’t use. The timing happened to be really good as my brothers moved out of their house for the summer and brought me two tons of stuff from their pantry. It was a great opportunity to empty my own pantry, sort, discard old stuff, gather a box to donate, and reorganize my little warehouse of food. It looks great, and I actually know what I have. It makes meal planning so much easier.

Ta da!


This week? Time to unload clothes that no one wants. Yes, that wool sweater [7] is already heading out the door.

Got an itch to pitch? Check out The Happy Housewife’s series [8] to get some great motivation.
