Spring Cleaning Week 4: Bathrooms & More

12967499_10153567569562666_5569831258851734278_oFor this final week of Spring Cleaning, I am focusing on several small areas that need some work.  Bathrooms, Hall & Laundry Room.  If either of these are too overwhelming for you to combine into one week, then eliminate it and choose what needs the most attention.  I have 2 rather small bathrooms, a short hall w/ a linen closet and they won’t take me long to tackle, so I added the laundry room.  I’m pretty sure I have made my chore too large, but I already have a list going of things that have not been completed that I plan to accomplish during May…

One thing that I want us all to do each day is to try and find at least 5 things (MORE, if you can!!) that you can purge from the space that you are working on that day. Finding 5 things each day would be FAN-TAB-ULOUS! This does not mean to just move it and keep it. But, to remove it and get rid of it. Donate it. Throw it away. Recycle it. Etc…

I have been doing well at this purging idea!  Much to my families chagrin…  They do NOT like to part with their personal possessions!  So, sometimes I gotta do what I gotta do…

Here is my list of areas in my Bathrooms, Hall & Laundry Room that I am attacking this week. (Yes, it may take me longer than this week but I plan to keep going until I get it done!!)  You can do the same or make your own list. But, make a game plan. A list of some sort! Even if it becomes overwhelming and you can’t keep up, having the list WILL HELP!! Trust me!! Start with a list!!

  • Cabinets (1 in each bathroom):
    -Cleaned out & organized
  • Showers scrubbed
    -grout cleaned
  • Shower curtain washed & ironed
    -liner bleached & rehung
  • Clean light fixture, exhaust fan, A/C vent
  • Wash down baseboards, door frames,
  • Clean out hall closet:
    -reorganize each shelf, purge and tidy.
    -Magic Eraser the door
  • Laundry Room:
    -wipe down the dryer
    -Wipe down the washer
    -Run a cleaning wash cycle and scrub the washer
    -Have hubs clean out the Dryer vent hose trap
    -Clean baseboards
    -Clear off the laundry rack and purge!!!

I’ll try to devote about 15 minutes each day to accomplishing my chore for the day. We’ll see how much we can get done this week!

I’ll share a post this week in our Coupon Group with my goals for the week. I’ll try to update throughout the week on my status (and you can add yours too!) I know that some of us have more to organize/clean that those areas, but with this being the final week of our planned Clean, you can join in and get done what you can!  Keep going into next month if you would like!

Have you been following along this month and participating in some way?  Leave me a comment and let me know!

Spring Cleaning: Bedroom Update

12967499_10153567569562666_5569831258851734278_oJust a quick update to touch base about our week of bedroom Spring Cleaning efforts before we head off on the next and final efforts.  Did you make a list?  Did you get it done? Or at least make an effort?

I made a list!  I made an effort!  BUT, I did not come anywhere near to getting it done!  My hubby was sick…  (If you have a man in your life I am sure you can relate!  The world comes to a stop when they are ill!)  Plus, our kiddo had a  fundraiser on Saturday and we had to participate in that all morning and wash many cars!  This momma was ‘tard’ out after and I was NOT cleaning and organizing after…

I was not so worried about tackling my kiddo’s room, as I get into her room 3-5 times a year and do a complete and thorough purge, organize and clean effort.  As for our bedroom, it gets done from tip to top about twice a year max….

Here was my list:

  • Closets:
    -Clean it out, purge and organize! (All 3 of us!)
    -pack winter clothing – DONE ☑
  • Dresser:
    -clean out drawers, purge and organize!
  • End tables:
    -empty, purge and organize! (Especially Hubs…) DONE ☑
  • Jewelry boxes/storage:
    -purge, organize and then polish the box. DONE ☑
  • Book cases:
    -Organize. Dust. Polish.
  • Vacuum ceiling fan. Dust ceiling lights and A/C vents. -DONE ☑
  • Wash & iron curtains. -DONE! ☑
  • Take comforters to laundry mat and wash/dry.- DONE ☑

Still Needs To Be Done:

  • Dresser:
    -clean out drawers, purge and organize!
  • Book cases:
    -Organize. Dust. Polish.
  • Closets:
    -Clean it out, purge and organize! (All 3 of us!)

    -I have mine started, but….

Here are a few details that you  may or may not have thought of while planning out your BEDROOM To Do List and you may want to come back to after we are done:

  • Cleaning jewelry.  While I was purging my jewelry box, I went ahead and got out the Jewelry cleaner and Silver cleaner and spent about an hour and cleaned all of my jewelry.  It was SO rewarding to see so many dull and lifeless pieces that I had been avoiding wearing come back to life in just seconds!
    (Here are some Amazon links for the cleaners that I have and use. I get out my liquid cleaners occasionally, but I use my blue cloth regularly to buff and shine!)

  • Clean your A/C vent.  It may just need a quick dusting or a vacuum with the brush attachment OR you might want to consider taking it down and de-greasing it.
  • Vacuum your ceiling, corners, crown molding, etc… (No, I’m NOT being OCD!)
    -Especially if you have popcorn ceilings still, (like I do.  UGH!) pets and a ceiling fan their fur gets spun around the room and combined with dust and makes a complete mess.  I vacuum the ceiling fan regularly, but with that popcorn ceiling the dust bunnies just love to cling to it, as well!  With my allergy issues I have to keep on top of my dust/pet hair in my bedroom better these days!
  • Shampoo your carpets!
  • Clean out your dresser drawers and donate the excess to a homeless shelter!
    -Give the unwanted things to a great cause!  They can use them and you will love the extra space and feel good!

OK, now that I have made my ongoing To Do list even longer… It is time to end this and move on to the current week’s list.  Let me know how your Bedroom Cleaning went this week!

Menu Plan Monday: April 25- May 1, 2016

Planning my family’s meals ahead of time based on what I have on hand AND what is on sale at Publix and Aldi is a HUGE $$ saving plan for my family! I feel it is a money saving plan for you and that is why I promote it at EVERY class I teach AND I post it publicly every week! (Keeps me accountable!)

Our menu plan is made up mostly from the items I already have on hand, in my deep freeze, frig or pantry. Very little shopping has to be done to plan my weekly menu, except produce.

By shopping the sales/deals, I rarely have to pay full price for anything to put together a menu plan. This saves so much money for my family! Try it, it will work for you too!
Do you have a plan this week?? I’d love for you to share it with us!

Here is our Dinner plan:

  • General Tso Chicken, stir fried veggies, rice
  • Enchilada stuffed peppers, side salads
  • Turkey burger Salsibury steaks w/ mushrooms & gravy, creamy garlic mashed cauliflower
  • Thu-Fast food night
  • Copy Cat Applebee’s Oriental Chicken Salad
    http://lilluna.com/ copycat-applebees-oriental-salad/
  • Low Carb Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls, salads

Produce Bought @ Aldi This Week:
Going later today…

In planning our weekly menu, I try to plan 1-2 nicer meals; 1-2 really simple & easy to pull off meals; 1 salad or soup based meal and anything else kinda falls in the middle somewhere. AND I always plan based on what I already have. (Except the fresh items)

How do you plan yours?

Spring Cleaning Week 3: Bedrooms

This week we are moving on to our BEDROOMS!  You can choose to fous one one that needs extra special attention, or to get them all done.  Your choice!  I’m choosing to get them all done.  I already got a few things done on them throughout the month, so my list will…should… get done a bit easier this week!

One thing that I want us all to do each day is to try and find at least 5 things (MORE, if you can!!) that you can purge from the space that you are working on that day. Finding 5 things each day would be FAN-TAB-ULOUS! This does not mean to just move it and keep it. But, to remove it and get rid of it. Donate it. Throw it away. Recycle it. Etc…

Here is my list of areas in the Bedrooms that I am attacking this week. You can do the same or make your own list. But, make a game plan. A list of some sort! Even if it becomes overwhelming and you can’t keep up, having the list WILL HELP!! Trust me!! Start with a list!!

  • Closets:
    -Clean it out, purge  and organize! (All 3 of us!)
    -pack winter clothing.
  • Dresser:
    -clean out drawers, purge and organize! (Both rooms)
  • End tables:
    -empty, purge and organize! (Especially Hubs…)
  • Jewelry boxes/storage:
    -purge, organize and then polish the box. (Monkey Girl and Mommy!)
  • Book cases:
    -Organize.  Dust.  Polish.  (Both rooms!!)
  • Vacuum ceiling fan.  Dust ceiling lights and A/C vents. (Both bedrooms)
  • Wash & iron curtains.
  • Take comforters to laundry mat and wash/dry.

I already told you last week that I plan to break it down over the month into bite size chunks. I’ll try to devote about 15 minutes each day to accomplishing my chore for the day. We’ll see how much we can get done over the next month!! Check it out:

  • Week 3: Bedrooms
  • Week 4: Bathrooms, Laundry room & hall closet

I’ll share a post each week in our Coupon Group with my goals for the week. I’ll try to update throughout the week on my status (and you can add yours too!) I know that some of us have more to organize/clean that those areas, but with just 2 weeks left in the month…. You can be more energetic in your efforts and get more done in the week or take it on into the next month.

Would you like to join me over the remainder of the month of April and get your home cleaned out and more organized? Leave me a comment and let me know that you are joining in!!
