30 Day House Cleaning Challenge: Days 5, 6 & 7

Today on Money Saving Mom's 30 Day House Cleaning Challenge we were given 3 tasks to choose from since we get the weekend off (yay!)- surface clean the kitchen and living room, clean a bathroom, or clean interior windows. I decided to do a little bit of everything so we can just enjoy the fact that our weather is finally starting to get nice!

I don't have any pictures since I didn't do any 'major' clean-ups. I did the windows in our family room- we have one entire wall of floor to ceiling windows in there and I swear they are ALWAYS dirty! But it was sunny today, so it felt so nice to open the curtains and let the light in! I also caught up on folding all of the laundry, I surface cleaned the kitchen, and did a general pick up in all of the other rooms.

What area(s) did you choose to tackle today? Are you supposed to have nice weather this weekend?

30 Day House Cleaning Challenge: Day 4

Today was 'extra room' day for Money Saving Mom's 30 Day House Cleaning Challenge. I chose to clean my laundry room and our little loft area. The loft are was extremely easy, all I had to do was pick up, take the donation bags to the car, dust, and vacuum (and yes, those are clothes on the floor- about 5 feet away from a laundry basket, ugh!) The laundry room really wasn't all that bad either. We don't have a basement, so we use half of our laundry room for storage. Today I just focused solely on the laundry area, I'll tackle the little storage nook at a later time! Here are the befores and afters!

30 Day House Cleaning Challenge: Day 3

Today is day 3 of Money Saving Mom's 30 Day House Cleaning Challenge! Today's task was the bedroom. I had really high hopes of making all 3 of our bedrooms sparkle....that is, until the sore throat came on. And then the chills. And then the fever. And so now I'm on the couch and have been for hours! But don't worry, the day wasn't entirely lost! I was able to get my daughter's room picked up, and most importantly, I cleaned out her dresser drawers- I found 2 full bags of stuff to donate! I do still need to get in there and do a huge toy organization/ clean out, but for being so sick I'm still happy with the little that I was able to do! So here are my before and afters!

30 Day House Cleaning Challenge: Day 2

Day 2 of Money Saving Mom's 30 Day House Cleaning Challenge consisted of the BATHROOM! And she picked a good day for it, usually I'm pretty good about surface cleaning the bathroom, but today I had lots of STUFF hanging around.


Today I put everything back in its place, wiped down counters, and scrubbed the toilet. My daughter was begging for food so I decided to leave the sweeping and mopping for tomorrow =)

30 Day House Cleaning Challenge: Day 1

This month I am participating in Money Saving Mom's 30 Day House Cleaning Challenge.  Today's tasks were surface cleaning the living room and kitchen as well as getting rid of at least 7 items. And of course on the very first day I forget to take before and after pictures! 

The living rooms were fairly easy since we weren't home yesterday. It was mostly just picking a few toys up and vacuuming. I also did a quick wipe down of the tv stand and I vacuumed under the stairs in the family room.

The kitchen was a different story, and I was so happy my husband was here to help me! We cooked some things for Easter dinner yesterday morning and spent all day away from home. We didn't get home until pretty late, so we had quite the mess waiting for us this morning! With his help we were able to get everything done in about 30 minutes, so not too bad.

The seven things I got rid of were all from the kitchen. Specifically, paper junk. The kitchen seems to be the landing spot for all junk mail! So I sorted and tossed things that weren't important.

Day 2 Update
