?h5>Day 19 Spring Cleaning Challenge

It’s that time of year again-Spring! When the last of the fall leaves finally come off of my tree in the front yard, the flowers start to bloom, the birds are chirping, the days are longer, and hopefully it’s getting warmer. Well I guess here in Indiana I’m still waiting on the getting warmer part! Then comes the thought of Spring cleaning. A thought that I push way to the back of my mind, but it still creeps back to the front.

I definitely want to do a good Spring cleaning, but just wasn’t sure where to start and then Wham! There the answer was in my email box. Home Made Simple sent me the solution. A 30 day Spring cleaning plan. Home Made Simple is a company owned by Proctor and Gamble. Their website has recipes, organization, crafts, decorating, DIY projects and more!

Saturday April 13, 2013 Day Nineteen

Day nineteen of the Spring Cleaning Challenge is to polish your flatware. If you don’t have flatware that you polish, then try and choose something from day one’s list to do today instead.

Spring Cleaning Tips and Tricks

Instead of polishing the flatware I am going to be going through my kitchen cabinets. I need to look through all my various dishes and decide if there is anything I can get rid of. After that I will wipe the cabinets down on the inside and then re-organize and put things away. I know for sure I have some plastic lids that I no longer have the bowls for. How does that happen?  I also have some new cabinet storage that I am going to put in to help make everything that I have fit a little better. Hopefully by the end of the day I will have a little more room in my cabinets and a little less “stuff!”

Day Eighteen Progress

How did your chairs and couches come out? Did you steam clean or spot clean? I was able to get my junk drawer nice and organized in under an hour so I am happy! It’s amazing the things that I find in there that already have homes somewhere else. It truly is a “catch all.”  My Mom started the “junk drawer” idea when I was younger. Ironically we bought the house from my parents that I grew up in and I use the same drawer that she used for the junk drawer. Same drawer different “junk.” It’s nice and neat-for now!
