Happy House Cleaning Challenge: Week 10!!!!

Can you believe it? We are at week 10! 10! You made it my fellow cleaning junkies! Let's just finish up this week, and then you are on your own. Well, sort of. I'll still be here. You'll still be right there. We'll still meet up in this same spot. But for now, let's get down to business!

First order of business, you get to see how I did last week. Since we were out of town for a night, my schedule was a little off, but still overall, went well.

1. Make Your Bed 5/7
2. Empty the Sink 7/7
3. Clear the Clutter 7/7
4. Sweep the Kitchen Floor 6/7
5. Sort the Mail
6. Spray Your Shower 6/7
7. Write It Down 5/7
8. Organize Your Outerwear 7/7

Even with those few misses, my house still feels organized and looks clean!

Well, last week, I promised to go easy on you for week 10. I like to keep my promises, and I'll do that right now. This week, brace yourself, because we are adding my favorite task.
