Day one of the more organized home challenge

Today, I did the complete list of the challenge. I’m not sure if I will be able to do all the tasks each day of the challenge, but my goal is to get at least the shortened version done each day.

Here’s the tasks for today,

  • Get dressed.
  • Make a to do list of 5-7 items to accomplish today.
  • Complete your Morning Routine
  • Set a timer for 15 minutes and clean the windows and mirrors
  • Clean the junk drawer and utensil drawers

The first three are things I do each day already, so those tasks were easy for me to get done. Here’s how the rest of my tasks went along with the  photos,

Shine the Windows

I cleaned all the windows on our main floor today. I cleaned them inside and out. There was so many water stains on the outside. They were so bad, but now they look so much better. I didn’t get a before photo but here’s the after. I was amazed at how much better they looked once I was done.

Cleaning the Junk and Utensil Drawers

The junk drawer is always full of well, junk. I went through and sorted it. I found quite a few items that were actually garbage in this drawer. I can’t believe all the stuff that ends up in this drawer.

Junk drawer was really unorganized

The utensil drawer wasn’t near as bad as the junk drawer. It has lots of stuff in it but it just needed to be organized.

Utensil drawer was quite a mess

 

Here’s how both drawers looked once I was done. An improvement for sure.

The junk drawer is organized now.

Purge Items

Quite a few items I found to throw away.

Here’s all the stuff I removed from the junk drawer. I found little bits of yarn, broken rubber bands and broken balloons. I think they get in there because my daughter goes to put things away like the scissors and then without thinking drops the garbage in there too. I find little bits of garbage all the time in this drawer. 🙂

Friday, I’ll be cleaning my computer and doing something I love.

How much junk did you find in your junk drawer?
