Neat and Tide-y

  Have you ever looked around your house and thought to yourself, "How the heck did it get so messy and out of control in here?" That thought crosses my mind almost daily.

  When I woke up today I set some cleaning goals. The laundry room was first up. Here are some before and after pictures.

This laundry room is located between my kitchen and family room. It tends to be a catch-all area...laundry, mail, toys, shoes, wet clothes from the pool, etc. Much of the mess went in the trash, plus I moved a lot of tools that seem to accumulate in the cabinet back out to the garage. I put the kids in charge of matching weeks and weeks of spare socks and voila!   Maybe I'll be inspired to keep it looking nice after today. We'll see. How  long  do you think the top of the washer will stay clear of anything?

Next on the agenda.....the closet area in the same room. Check out this Monster.....


  1. You go girl!! Now...can you please come to my house and do my closet? Thanks...how does next Wednesday sound to you?? *smile*

  2. It's amazing how an untidy mess can irritate your well-being and vice versa. : ) Kim

  3. You have inspired me and I have at least 30 mintues before Stellie wakes up from her nap... I think I can take care of a pile of work shirts that need to be ironed in that time. - Eileen
