Cleaning and Organizing Day!

Well today started off with a goal of cleaning and decluttering some of those spots I just never get to. I have wanted to throw away stuff and make those spots look better for a while but just havent gotten around to it.

Here is a before of the buffet table in the dining room. It usually gets kids school papers thrown on it and coupons, after I go through the paper.

And here is the after!!! Much better!!!

The next project was to clean off was the kitchen island. It is the worst clutter spot in my whole house (ok, other than the first landing of the stairs, it always gets stuff thrown on it that needs to be carried upstairs). I wanted to throw stuff away and go through my black bill basket thing.

I accomplished it!!!! Look so nice now!

The next spot was my husbands area!!! I had asked him to clean it but if you want something done and done right you just have to do it yourself. His pool table always just gets everything thrown on it. (his work clothes and his work supplies)and it was dirty and covered in spices from his beef jerky making...

And here is the after!!! now he needs to make sure all the balls are there and put the side panel back on!

And last but needed it the most is his bar/beef jerky area!!! It had spices all over the place and needed dusted sooo bad! I scrubbed and scrubbed!!!

Now it looks a ton better!!! I am sooo glad this is done!!!! And I hope he appreciates it!!

I hope this makes you want to get up and clean!!! I know I always get inspired by others projects and clean houses!!!!!


  1. First off, your etsy shop is adorable!

    Why is it that we allow our house to get so messy? And once we clean it, the thought that keeps running through my head is, "I'll never let it get like this again"...and then a week later its messy again.

    I trying to get my house under wraps from just moving in. I get one room done and then I turn around and there are piles of stuff in another room. ugh!

  2. Yes I totally know what you mean. My house goes right back to that way! I have to pick up and clean at least 4 to 5 times a week...Thanks for stopping by and following!Brooke
