De-cluttering Saturday and Sunday

So spent a lot of time just trying to clean up the mini-messes that create one HUGE mess around the house. Spent all day folding laundry, putting it away, cleaning counters, dusting shelves, cleaning the bathroom, picking up the girls room.  Yesterday was spent partially outside spreading mulch and using the weed-eater around the house.  Trying to limit the trimming that is required after the riding lawn mower is used.  Almost there.  But yesterday I did clean up a massive mess that was behind the couch.  I had board games stack up, and not on shelves, so if we tried to play out because the whole pile might fall.  I found a bookshelf at a garage sale for $1.00 on Friday and had an extra in the garage holding things like sidewalk chalk and their hopscotch boards.  So cleaned them both up and it went from:

Yes there were some blankets and sheets that needed folded that somehow found their way on top of the games.

But after only about an hour...because I was really hot from working outside, so I think I messed around a bit to cool off in the A/C....we now have a cleaner way to get out our board games. 


  1. Oh yeah, I think I need to do the exact same thing. Good for you, it looks great.

  2. I have been reorganizing our school things also. Must be that time of year.
