Finished almost all my list. Today is the kitchen and my extra today was remove all items from counters and clean the backsplash etc... and wipe down all the upper cabinet doors. I found a great project to help us organize and beautify at the same time. Especially all you moms with all those huggies/pampers boxes

The fish seem to be doing well and the water has cleared up, yay

I was trying to rehang my living room curtains after my son broke the rod and he bent the new rod before I even got it up I really need a heavy duty drapery rod, but i am trying to cheap it along until the tax rebate can come in.

-3rd load of laundry washing
-cleaned one shelf in the linen closet, I finally threw out all the old waterproof mattress covers, we don't even have that size bed in the house anymore. I also found like 20 pillow cases I was thinking we didn't have any,

Got everything on my list done, seriously this schedule makes the cleaning seem so easy.

There is nothing better than sitting in a quiet library, listening to Adele. Goodness, I love that woman.
Good news, my coupons that I ordered off eBay arrive today just in time for my Friday shopping.

It was so nice & easy to clean up today after working so hard yesterday!

Did a 15-minute cleanup with the kids that included S&S, emptying small garbage cans, making beds, and general pickup.

I got the clean laundry put away and have one load drying now.

I made dinner early in a tin foil casserole pan, so I had the kitchen all clean before dinner.

My 15-minute declutter was the fridge. Now I really need to scrub it.

My husband came home and said, "It smells so clean in here!"

yay for clean filters!!! I love how you took pictures during the removal.

Well- considering the plans I had for today, I managed to get everything done! Im really amazed at how easy it is turning out to be! Once things are clean and kept clean its a breeze to keep it that way.
So here is the finished craft project SIL and I worked on today!! Valentines for DS Valentines day party.


And a diaper cake I made for hubby's coworker!

I am so pleased with how it turned out!!

Brook-Love the new decorating!
Also, your welcome! I'm so happy you are enjoying this thread!
Congratulations on finishing DH's garage!! The rack sounds perfect for V-day....glad I could help!

Always feel free to share your shopping deals here! That definitely qualifies for a great homemaking topic!! Nice job!

kstover-I can't wait to try to tub cleaner too! Now, be sure you enjoy that sparkling clean tub!

kimmer-Your kitchen counter looks fantastic!

Susanne-I use 1:1 alcohol water (I read that vinegar could harm granite counter tops) mixture on my granite counter tops and stove top. Sometimes I have to wipe two rounds on the stove after my FIL. I think he eats a little food with his grease....YUCK! I would love it if someone knew of something even better!

I haven't tried putting essential oils in my kitchen cleaner yet....has anyone tried this? I'm just wondering if it will leave my granite counter top looking streaky?

Sassy-Good job on getting your q's organized! I'm still on q restriction! I do have binder cleared out, and I'm caught up on clipping to the 1/8 inserts. So, I'm getting there. Don't know if I'll make it for this week's paper. I just refuse to buy any until I'm all caught up.

Christin-Good luck on the babysitting! Sounds like your doing great on adjusting your schedule when needed. Keep up the good work!

Loving all the crafting pics! Keep 'em coming!

Brie-Great job on all your accomplishments! I'm loving that the whole family has jumped on the band wagon too! Love it!!

nsweeps-Your before and after pictures look great! Thanks for sharing...Good for you!!

Robin-Great job on all your lists!! My DD was 9.3lbs!! I gained 60lbs.....still carrying that around....and here it is 10 years later. Maybe once I get some of my hidden clutter out of my house, I can start working on my body clutter. Good for you on working so hard on taking care of yourself! :

Tiff-Nice job on your lists!! Glad your feeling better!

liibyz-Congratulations on the dishwasher! You won't even know what to do with all that free time, while that dishwasher is working for you! Enjoy it!

Poly-Keep up the good work! Love the mittens! Very cute idea, thanks for sharing!

Jenkay-Those "done" lists are looking AWESOME!!! Thanks for the funny visual of you cleaning out that dishwasher. Keep up the good work!

Simba-Good job on adjusting your schedule where you need to. Thanks for sharing the link, I can't wait to check it out!

Amanda-Isn't it amazing what we find, once we start getting rid of the clutter?! Good job!

Jane-Your doing AWESOME!! So glad you could pop in. I wasn't able to sit down yesterday and join in on any conversation here, so I know what you mean. Keep up the good work!

hjackson-I've been just using the same 1:1 water:alcohol that I use on my counter tops. I would love to hear what everyone else uses. Good to hear from you!


Ok...I think I'm caught up now! Just want to give a huge shout out to all of you for making this thread TOTALLY AWESOME!!!! I appreciated all of you who are jumping in to spread !!! I missed you all yesterday, just had too much on my list, and wanted to spend my free time with the family since I was off yesterday.

I'm overwhelmed with the response this thread has gotten, and I look forward to cheering on people who stop in from reading about it on the newlestter.

to you all!!!

Christin - Love the cute Owl cards and diaper cake you made! You are so creative!

Jenakay and other ladies - Did you all have to take out several screws to get the blade off before you could get down to your filters? I got down on my hands and knees to check out my dishwasher, but had no idea what I was doing and was afraid to take anything apart!

Jennifer - Glad you are back today! Missed you!! Thanks for the tip about 1:1 alcohol and water. I will try that next time. I used a lot of elbow grease (), magic erasers, and Greased Lightning multipurpose spray and got my countertops and small appliances looking sparkling clean again! Whew!! Took two days on that job. I will try to wipe things down a lot more frequently so it won't layer like that.... Shew!

Good Morning everyone!

So this morning I was so grateful that I did my S&S yesterday. I had a super rough 1st and 2nd trimester and actually lost over 20 lbs. It had been about a month since I puked...but there I was this morning with my face in the toilet.

Feeling better now. Need to get some food in my tummy.

List for today:
Get dressed DONE
Breakfast DONE
CVS for a quick deal DONE
Rascal to doggie day care (I take him a few days a week so he can get some exercise, found a deal where it is only $1.45/ hour!!!) DONE
Go to church to work on some stuff DONE
Lunch with mom DONE
Make bedDONE
Put dishwasher back together DONE
Dishes DONE
S&S DONE
Declutter for 15 minutes
Zone cleaning

FYI- I let the mixture soak overnight and I woke up to small rust spots in the dishwasher and had to scrub it out with a brush.

I have a very old GE Triton Dishwasher and I didn't have to remove the blade to access the filter. It was in the back and DH had to remove 2 small screws.

Jenkay-Isn't it amazing that we are thinking....so glad this toilet was clean, while we're sick like that? It happened to me too, that was when I was truly convinced that S&S daily was a GOOD thing!

Jennifer I have been using essential oils in my homemade cleaners, I use tea tree oil and peppermint. But I dont have granite so I cant speak to how well it works there. We've got laminate tops. My SIL smelled it yesterday when I was wiping down the counters after lunch and asked if it was my homemade stuff. She said it smelled really nice and so much better than the chemical junk.

pchef3 Thanks! Being creative is an outlet for me.. and since Ive been keeping my home 'company ready' Ive decided weekly craft days are my reward!
I wipe the counters down in the kitchen almost obsessively and I have noticed that cleaning the kitchen takes a fraction of the time it used to, and NO MORE SCRUBBING!

jenakay Oh, Im sorry to hear you've had a rough pregnancy, hope you feel better today.
LOL! How funny your hubby didnt even know until later!
About the rust- It may have been a chemical reaction to the mixture and the metals.. I havent looked at the recipe.. so Im not sure whats in it...You might want to only soak it every 6-12 months? Id be concerned that is corroding the screws that are holding things down, KWIM?


I have no plans for anything today so I want to finally finish up that closet shelf and the junk drawer.
Daily
Dishes-
Counters and Stove top-
Bathrooms- counters, sinks, mirrors S&S-
Beds-
Laundry-
Vacuum-
Exercise

Daily Deep Clean Zone
Kids Bathroom/ Guest Bathroom
Well yesterday I got a wild hair and sprayed magic cleaner and cleaned the shower/tub..
Toilets
Floors
Under sink
Drawers

15 minute Declutter Projects
Closet shelf
Junk drawer
Find new 'home' for board games/ craft stuff. Its beginning to take over a corner in the front living room. :\ I think I have some empty rubbermaid bins I can use.. will have to dig around.

Thanks Christin! I think it will probably be ok in the granite. I love the smell too. Someone said here that their house now just smells good/clean , instead of chemical/clean, and I have to agree! I don't even have to use the air sprays as often now. Love it!
