Happy House Cleaning Challenge: Week 8

Can you believe it? It's week 8 already! We've been at this for 2 months now. I'm so glad you are still here with me! First things first, let's get the ugly part out of the way. Ok, maybe not ugly, but not perfect. But who's perfect anyway?

1. Make the Bed! 7/7
2. Empty the Sink! 7/7
3. Clear the Clutter!
4. Sweep the Kitchen Floor! 4/7
5. Sort the Mail! 7/7
6. Spray the Shower! 7/7
7. Write It Down! o...m...g... 2/7 I think I forgot last week existed!

So now this week, we still need to add something new. I like this one. I like it a lot. Want to know why? Because it is my eminent downfall. It's mostly because it hasn't become routine for me to do it, and I just don't think about it. So here we go. Time to make it routine.

WEEK 8: Organize Your Outerwear

That's a bit cryptic, so let's explain. This includes anything that you remove when you walk in the door. My items are shoes, coat (weather depending) and purse. They all have homes. Nice ones at that. And I'm good about hanging my purse and coat, but my shoes gravitate to the laundry room. It.must.stop. And it will, starting tonight. My frequently worn shoes will go in the front closet in the designated baskets and my less worn shoes go in the Shoes Under in my bedroom. Coat goes in the front closet, and the purse is hung on the rack in the laundry room. Nothing crazy difficult, but it should be done daily.

So, what do you need to do to organize your outerwear? Do you have a home for those things? If not, make one! Once everything has a home in your house, the clutter will disappear faster than you imagined! Also, don't forget to POST YOUR RESULTS!! New to the challenge? That's ok too. Join in now!

Oh...and one more time with our new task included:
1. Make the Bed!
2. Empty the Sink!
3. Clear the Clutter!

4. Sweep the Kitchen Floor!
5. Sort the Mail!
6. Spray the Shower!
7. Write It Down!
8. Organize Your Outerwear!

Way to Go!!

  1. Ok. Last week was a joke. Seriously. I blame the holiday weekend. Yup, definitely not my fault. I can't even post my numbers. I'm so ashamed! Now, in my defense, we were gone for four days, and we left things perfectly neat and organized. That counts for something, right? This week will be better though, things are under control!!!

  2. Ok, I had to laugh at "outerwear." I live in Texas, so we don't have much use for coats! My purse already has a home though, so now I just need to be better about putting my shoes back up! Here's last week's stats:

    Make the bed: 7/7 OH YEAH!
    Empty the sink: 4/7
    Clear the clutter: 5/7
    Sweep the kitchen floor: 1/7 (oops)
    Sort the mail: 7/7
    Spray the shower: 5/7
    Write it down: 7/7

    Kickin' butt!

  3. Last week was crap for me! (We were out of town Sat - Mon)

    Make the bed: 4/4
    Empty the sink 3/4
    Clear the clutter 1/4
    Sweep the kitchen floor 2/4
    Sort the mail 4/4; because DH does it when he gets home from work...thank goodness
    Spray the shower 2/4
