30-day cleaning challenge-day 5

Hellooo everyone! How are you all doing so far? It’s going very well for me, except …

RANT OF THE DAY

It seems that hubby has, er, forgotten where the dishwasher is. In fact, it seems that he’s forgotten that we don’t actually have a cleaning service. Usually he’s pretty good at doing his share of the household chores, but this past week I’ve been finding his dirty dishes on top of the kitchen counter instead of in the dishwasher, his clothes all over the bedroom floor, instead of in the laundry hamper and, oh, all sorts of small things that are starting to make me feel just a little bit like the maid. Does anyone else have this issue? Perhaps it’s time for a gentle reminder of where things are.

RANT OVER 🙂

If you have missed day 1 of our 30-day Cleaning Challenge, you can catch up here.

Today’s task is the same as Day 1:

Surface clean living room and kitchen

This morning, my kitchen looked pretty much the same as it did on day 1 with dishes and kitchen-related things everywhere.30-Day Cleaning Challenge-Day 1

So I got to work putting things away, loaded and ran the dishwasher, washed the things that I don’t like to wash in the dishwasher (and put them away), took out the garbage, cleaned the counters, stove top, fridge and dishwasher doors (looks like somebody splashed coffee, or something there) and did a quick swipe of the inside of the garbage can lid. Finally, swept and mopped the floor and a quick clean of the sink

How to organize your Kitchen

Beautiful, yes? I think so, too. 🙂

 

 

Next, the living room. Not much to do in here – I took the coffee cups into the kitchen, wiped the coffee table, end tables and TV stand, fluffed up the throw pillows, folded a blanket and vacuumed the rug and the floor.

Done! And now I’m off to a barbecue (it’s Canada Day here).

See you tomorrow.

    Oh, I like your blog and your vibes! 🙂 It’s a great thing to inspire people.
    I am also challenging myself this days to clean at least 10-20 minutes each day and it is really a game changer for me. Now I don’t need to spend the whole day on cleaning the house.
    P.s. I am also on 100 day blogging challenge and I wish you all the luck with your proggres on the blog.
    Love from http://www.bonnyssoulfood.com

    Thanks for the share, I actually just got done wiping down my kitchen before reading your post. Now, if you want a fun way to mess it up, head on over to my blog and see how I make hand fruit pies (aka fried pies, but these are baked). Have an awesome weekend!

    It really only takes a little bit each day if you stay on top of things. Looks like you are on the track to spending more time doing things outside the house.

      That is so true. I get to do more of the things I love and less of the cleaning.
