Progress- Week of 7/16

Just a quick progress report...

Watched the show Clean House and became very motivated, plus my husband said something that made me think... it was along the lines of... "Boy, they are clean and seem like the perfect family, but they live like a bunch of slobs."

 Ugg.. I don't want to live like a bunch of slobs!

Okay- back to the progress..this way when I get down about the mess, I can see that there is light at the end of tunnel.

1. Cleaned off the messy front porch- so embarrassing.  I always wonder what the mailman might be thinking.
2.  Went through kid clutter with my girls.  They filled up one garbage back with clothing to sell or give to charity and I filled up one basket to give away and sorted and organized items they were going to keep.

3. Did a couple loads of laundry.  Cleaned in the kitchen/dishes.  Vacuumed in the living room.

Also this week- had the girls help me organize in the dining room. 

Still a messy nest, but at least I can look back and say.. work in progress.

Hope you are having a good week!

Progress Check-In

Hello!  Just checking in- the nest is still very messy.  But I did make some progress since the last time I posted.  I've been working on the clutter in my girls' room.  It's overwhelming for them, so Mom's tackling it and then I'm going to need to work on teaching them organizing skills (once I learn these strategies myself). I filled up two bags of toys/ clothes for charity.  Yeah.  Cleared and vacuumed the floor- woo hoo.

I've been sick for a week and 1/2- summer flu- maybe, so the rest of the nest fell apart.  Slowly, trying to get things together.  Worked in the kitchen this week- cleaning counter tops, dishes, and sweeping the floor, etc.  and the dreaded laundry.  Cleaned in the living room, but as I look around- looks like my family has started to mess it up already.  Ugg... endless battle! 

Trying to stay positive!
