I have been inspired by Crystal at moneysavingmom.com for years now. She is encouraging us to join her in the month of April for a 30 -day housecleaning challenge and I have decided to join in. Click on the graphic at left to learn more about the challenge. Day one’s assignment was to surface clean the living room and kitchen.
Here is what I did yesterday:
- Cleaned off the kitchen counters
- Loaded the dishwasher
- Put away all the Easter baskets and candy
- Decluttered the living room
- Dusted and vacuumed the living room
- Cleaned off the dining room table
- Dusted dining room table
I enlisted the boys help for 15 minutes. It is amazing what this little bit of cleaning did for my house, not to mention my mood. We had company over the weekend, so the house was not extremely dirty, but there were lots of items out of place.
Here are the before and after pictures:
Stay tuned for more updates as I try to whip my house into shape this April! You can check out what Crystal accomplished and several other moms at this link.
