One of my goals for July was to do some deep cleaning. Heard of spring cleaning? Well, I prefer summer cleaning. What better time to organize and tidy up everything than during my time off this week? Each day I have focused on a section of our (small) house which is still a ton of work, but I’ve been chugging through at a great pace. But today, I was faced with tackling our loft. It’s not that big of a space, but with it out of sight (out of mind) and having two large closets, our extra room had been turned into a temporary dumping ground. To say the least, it was going to be a huge challenge, and one that would take all day long.
And it did take all day. I buckled down yesterday morning and took it inch by inch until the early evening. I threw out three whole trash bags, got two huge bags for donations, and spent a total of around six hours gutting the loft. I’m proud of myself, and when you see the finished products, you will be too!
On top of all of that, I also got around to sorting, throwing, and organizing all our important paper work into a filing system. Now they are color coated, segmented, and put away!
Here’s the finished product!
Whew, I worked my butt off, but it was definitely worth it. That’s another day’s goal checked off, another goal for this week accomplished, and even another goal for this whole month completed. It feels good to be decluttered and have everything in it’s right place around the house. Now the hard part begins: keeping it that way!
