Before and after. 4 days of on and off work :) did feel good/feel bad because my emotions aren’t timed as well as 20/10s. Still have more to go but happy :) and now its only a 10 minute sweep after company.

Reset: during & after. Stuff was scattered around, so I gathered and sorted it all first. Bonus: glued the toe of my boot back together!

Excuses are boring.

  • Wash the dishes in your sink
  • Get your outfit for tomorrow together, including accessories
  • Set up coffee/tea/breakfast
  • Make your lunch
  • Put your keys somewhere obvious
  • Wash your face and brush your teeth
  • Charge your electronics
  • Pour a little cleaner in the toilet bowl (if you don’t have pets or children or sleepwalking adults)
  • Set your alarm
  • Go to bed at a reasonable hour

i cleaned my closet yesssssssssssss. i am so excited. usually i just run in and run out because it’s so messy but now i just keep trying to think of excuses to go in there. i just want to bask in the glory of the clean.

so i have this kind of big walk in closet and i stuck my dresser in there too. so my bedroom is super easy to clean up because all that’s really in there is my bed and a couple book shelves. all the mess is in my closet and i hate cleaning it.

blehhhhh. not pretty. just clothing dumped everywhere, nothing is folded, my dresser woudn’t even close because there was so much stuff just unfolded and thrown in. not pictured: two baskets of clean laundry which i was too lazy to put away last week, and like 5 loads worth of dirty laundry to do.

progress! i took all the clothing on the shelves out, refolded them, and put them back. i also got rid of all the trash on the floor and organized my shoes. after this i dumped out everything in my dresser, folded them, and put them back. i also threw out a bunch of stained/old clothing, and filled up a whole trash bag with clothing i’m going to donate.

and done!!! all laundry washed and put away, i cleaned up my dresser area and decorated a little bit, and because i couldn’t figure out what to do with my coats i bought some command hooks and hung them up. i do still need to vacuum, though, but maybe i can do that tomorrow. 

anyway, unfucked!

A series of 20/10s in the kids’ room over the last couple of days. Seeing the progress is keeping frustration at bay.

This was a 2 night project, because shelving books is an undertaking of epic proportions. But it’s all done now.

I love that The Husband puts away the dishes. But he literally just tosses the containers in the cabinet - despite my pleas to just leave them on the counter so I can put them away. #firstworldproblems

Before and after

This week we’re going back to the basics: Put it away, not down. Save yourself from wasting time and creating a mess by dealing with every item you handle the right way, right away.

Don’t put that coffee cup down on the counter, wash it or put it in the dishwasher. Bringing purchases into the house? Put them away and stash the bags right away. When you kick your shoes off at the end of the day, put them back where they belong instead of leaving them wherever they fall.

Put it away, not down.

Even on the weekend.
