4 Weeks to a More Organized Home: Day 16

It’s day 16 out of 20 (almost done!) of my 4 Weeks to a More Organized Home challenge. This morning we had a good friend from work over for lunch – which helped save money on going out to lunch and also gave us some good quality time to catch up. We also got to pick a few things from our little garden to make the starter:

Starter made using homegrown tomatoes and basil – yum yum!

We spent the morning clearing the house up and finally got around to hanging up this US flag that we had hung on the window for the London Olympics – and then left there. It looks good in it’s new home over the stairs, don’t you think?

After lunch, I took a look at today’s 4 Weeks to a More Organized Home Challenge:

1.Get dressed in something that makes you feel great

Polka dot skirt and a grey tee shirt suit a rainy day like today

2. Set the timer for 15 minutes and quickly pick up your house and put things back into order after the weekend.

We had a friend coming over for lunch so spent about 30 minutes this morning straightening up and making the house more presentable

3. Clean your vents. If you have floor vents that can be removed, remove them and wash them in warm soapy water. Vacuum/clean any dirt or grime around the floor vent area and replace the vent. Use a vacuum attachment and/or a wet rag to dust/clean your other vents.

We don’t have vents – hip hip hooray for the day off!!

4. Find 5 items to get rid of today. Throw them out, stick them in a donate or garage sale box, give them to a friend who can use them, or list them on Craigslist or eBay.
