Today I moved onto the living room. This is not my favorite room to clean. It always seems to be a magnet for clutter. This is the room we use the most of all the rooms in our home. Since we use this room so much it get messy the easiest. But that is why I am doing this series to clean up these areas that drive me crazy right? So here is how the cleaning went today at my house.
Here is what I started with
As you can see our living room is really lived in. Lots of toys, pillows, and paper scattered about. My kids flip-flops project on the hearth. I realized that the only way to make this room look better is to get some of this stuff that is not needed in this room out. While I sorted the magazines my kids sorted through the toys and put some away into the toy box in my son’s room. My daughter took her and her brother’s flip-flops they made and put them away.
This is what it looked like after
Now that looks so much better. It is hard to believe just removing a few things and putting them into their places can make such a big difference.
How did you do on your cleaning today? Did you clean up your living room or did you choose a different room?
I will be working on the entry of my home. This is another area that can be a catch-all for things. Our piano doubles as a parking station for many things that come into our home. So I will need to do some de-cluttering and then cleaning. This area is a small area but stuff can really build up.
What I want to get done in my entry
- Dust the door
- Dust the pictures
- Remove items from the piano and dust the top of the piano and keys cover
- Clear off the piano bench and dust
- Vacuum and dust behind the piano and under it
- Vacuum the hardwood floor
- Organize the coat closet and organize the shoes
