Day #6-14 – 30 Day Cleaning Challenge

Day #6-14

I’m going to challenge myself by following the 31 Day Cleaning Challenge with Money Saving Mom.     She is using the chart from Fresh and Organized.

Has it been over 8 days since I posted on this Challenge?  Well, I have to admit I have been doing the challenge!  When I get on my computer I have been doing a lot of other things like finishing up my small business paperwork, creating some embroidery items for customers and working on a new up and coming sewing forum.   Feel free to check it out!   It is called 4 the love of fabric.com. It is a paid subscription forum. It is a great place to talk and learn about sewing, quilting, and embroidery.

Day 6:

Clean Bathrooms – Since the bathrooms were basically already cleaned from a couple days ago I didn’t feel I needed to again so I continued on working on the office paper work.

Day 7:

All interior windows –  This is still on my list.  I used the rest of the weekend to catch up on keeping the kitchen and family room clean.

Day 8:

Sweep and vaccum all of the rooms in the house – I’ve always wanted to do this!  I’m not joking.  But, my house is always a mess in some room.  So I made it a challenge on Day 12 and Day 13 to do this challenge and I almost succeeded.

Day 9:

Surface clean bedrooms – I worked again on my daughter’s room the master bedroom.   We got several loads of laundry put away.

Day 10:

Deep clean the family room –  I actually did some of this.  I cleaned the TV, dusted around the hearth and some of the base boards.

Day 11:

Clean the bathrooms – I wanted to do this but I needed to catch up again on the kitchen, laundry and other chores.

Day 12:

Clean out closets – Hahah!  This one is a challenge so I went back and did the sweeping and vacuuming of the house.   The best part is I remembered I have a Roomba.  I forgot we had one.  We have the original one.  My hubby had it in the basement so I used it in there both on Day 12 and Day 13 since it really needed it.   We have a lot of kid toys down there and it helped to convince the kids to clean up the toys because the “robot” doesn’t like to vacuum toys.

Day 13:

Surface clean the other rooms – Besides vacuuming the other rooms and doing some more laundry.  I did tackle the guest bedroom that has a bit of everything.  It has the donation pile, the consignment sale and my extra sewing supplies.  I had my hubby take the donation pile to the Salvation Army today – total of 5 bags.
