Do you ever just want to clean out everything in your house? Start brand new…Make more space! Yesterday, I had a mini cleaning breakdown! We had family come in town late last night so I was trying to pick up and clean a few things….Well, I started noticing everything! Every scrape on the wall, every cluttered part of the closets, and then I went into full wipe down mode of walls, cabinets, etc. Kaz didn’t know what had gotten into me….Then the task got so overwhelming I finally said “I’m calling a maid service to get a deep cleaning!” YIKES! Cleaning and organizing have always been a big thing for me BUT yesterday I went into full panic mode! I got so frustrated with the amount of STUFF that we have that I wanted to throw everything in our closets that we don’t use away! I really don’t understand…You see, I cleaned out all of our closets just 3 months ago! They looked great and it felt so good to have less STUFF! What happened? Why is it that I have stuff in my closets that I have stayed in the same place for 3 years but I feel the need to hang on to it….
Whewwwww…….I haven’t decided fully what I’m going to do….Part of me wants to call a maid service so they can deep clean the house meaning walls, base boards, etc. The other part of me doesn’t want to spend the money but knows I DON’T have the time to do it myself….
On another note…going along with this whole thing….Kaz and I have been talking about re-doing our bathroom. We want to gut the whole master bathroom and do a tile shower, new vanity, mirror, tile floors, etc. Kaz is great at this kind of stuff and has done every project in our house….We’ve been talking about it and yesterday in my whole breakdown mode I said, "I’m ready to do this. Go pick out the stuff and start even if it means me being out of the master bathroom for a month!" So, starting next week Prikazsky master bathroom renovation will be underway!
Are you ever like this? What do you do to stay clutter free? What are some of your cleaning tips? I read my [blogger friend] Leslie's blog and she said[which I think is brilliant by the way] every afternoon upon arriving home set your phone alarm for 15 minutes. For 15 minutes straight just clean out…Don’t get distracted…Just clean out. Man, I wish I could do that:) I need to try!
