A Week of Cleaning: Sunday

I almost forgot about this! Which is horrible since Sunday is such an easy day. My weekend also was not as productive as I hoped it would be but there is nothing I can do about that now. Just try to be better the next.

This is my weekly cleaning schedule and also for supper meal planning. There is no meal planning this week though. Maybe one day….

Now with Sunday we have the deck, entry, laundry area, and floors. Right off the bat I can tell you the deck is not being done. It is simply just to cold outside. I also did not get the floors done either since there is so much crap in the way every where. Reality is that the house should be picked enough for me to do a quick vacuum and wash. Lets see the before and afters.

Not that bad really. A few groceries to pick up and move to the kitchen. I need to put a way our outerwear. I am also going to wipe a few things down with a water, vinegar, and essential oil mix.

I mean it does look better. The wall of boxes are donations that I need to drop off eventually. Until then I just keep adding to the pile. The blue basket that is on top of the deep freeze is stuff that needs to go to the shed. I store all the too big clothing out there and NaiNai sends a lot of stuff for her Granddaughter. The couple boxes by the microwave are going to a clients as they are having a baby and I thought I would help out. I also have a second Christmas Cactus as I have killed the one Missy got when she was born. I have to move it out in the summer so it does not get sunburned.

Laundry area is pretty simple as well. Just needs to be picked up and a quick wipe down.

The iron is still there as it needs to go to the recycling. I did do a quick vacuum of the floor and the entry way. I switched over the laundry and pretty much moved everything off the floor.

That really is all I got done ha-ha

I also said I would include a copy of my ‘Got Done’ list. You can actually see my entire weekend. I had an appointment on Saturday so I went to that, went to help a client get paperwork together for their other accountant, and grocery shopping. We did nothing really Sunday morning. After Missy’s nap, we went and gave Grandpa his birthday card. I lazed on the couch until I remembered I was going to do a blog post.

Now this bad boy has been very picture heavy. I also know it was not overly exciting. What I am going to do is include the before pictures from when I was going to try to do this short series. You want to talk about real life in such a small place. Those are it. I just had a good week this time.

This was only a week ago. After another day off shopping. It is also a lot of other junk from a build of other weeks. You can see where I need to break some bad habits though. Like putting the shopping a way immediately. Or putting parcels a way once I open them. It is so hard when the rest of your house is in disarray though and I think a lot of you can understand that.

Monday we have the kitchen and dinning area. That will be quite the job compared to every where else. Something to look forward too!

Donations – Part One

I will not be going into much detail here. This picture is from earlier this year. All of this stuff was in Missy’s room (she still is co-sleeping in my room). All of this was ‘crap’ that I needed to get out. Everything went to a local thrift store. This included all sorts of home items, pregnancy items, baby items, and clothing. The printer went to the local recycling facility.

I am always amazed at how much things pile up. Things also tend to pile up as I am a procrastinator. I am trying to give myself a limited spot for donations. More to force myself to deal with it. I do not have the problem where I will go back and take the item out of the box. But that box gets full and I make a second one and that ends up in the way somewhere in the house.

I have also taken a full load of items to our local pregnancy care centre. A mix of items that Missy has outgrown, to big to use, or we will not get around to using it before it expires and a few boxes of pampers.
