Look! My desk is no longer a terrifying wasteland! It only took about 20 minutes.

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

Because most of ya’ll don’t actually see me on a day to day basis, you have no idea how incredibly messy I am. However, today I cleaned my room for a good 6 hours from top to bottom. It smells like Mr. Clean and Pledge, but it’s done! 

Really, though. It was bad. These pictures don’t do it justice. 

Even on the weekend.

So I’m on Easter break from college and it is going by way too fast. For some reason every single time I come home, no matter how long or short my time here is, I feel the need to completely reorganize and clean my room. It’s a problem, especially since I brought half of my dorm home on this trip because I won’t be back again before I move home for the summer. Regardless, I started pulling everything out last night and by the time I realized it was a stupid idea it was too late to turn back. So even though I have a week’s worth of homework to do today and had to tell my grandma that I couldn’t go to the movies with her, I’m finishing what I started.

This is my first documented ufyh, I discovered it back in the winter over my Christmas break and I actually like the idea of it. Here goes nothing, I give you the Before:

Last night I pulled down all of the boxes in that giant pile and a stack of blankets so I could put those clothes on the top shelf of my closet, they’re a combination of out of season clothes and too-small clothes I’m hoping to get back soon (yes, I’m that girl). I also cleaned out a rolling storage box that is under my bed that had more clothes in it, those got hung up and put in my dresser because they’re in season again now that it’s warmer. My computer is usually stored in the bottom of my night stand but I throw it up on my dresser when I play music from it.

First 20/10: No pictures for this one because you can’t tell I did anything. I took down a load of laundry and brought one up that I had thrown in the machine last night. I folded and put away those clothes as well as some that never made it off my floor when I was unpacking yesterday. Then I started to tackle the pile in front of my closet but time ran out and I got distracted by my volleyball.

Second 20/10: Unpacked and put away 3 bags and a tub of random items like school books, magazines, art supplies. I threw out a giant tower o’ boxes that I’ve been holding onto forever, except for a few that I’m determined to keep for whatever reason. Also emptied out a box of extra towels and put those in the rolling box underneath my bed. Most importantly, I finished my coffee.

Third 20/10: I ended this one with 5 minutes to go because I started to get bored. Got a bag full of fragile containers and coffee mugs because I’m addicted emptied out and hung up the scarves I had used as makeshift padding. I folded up and put away all of the plastic grocery bags floating around, I only keep them because I use them to line my little trash can. Then I just started stacking up all of the stuff I didn’t get around to so it’s not in the middle of the floor.

So now all need to do before I go back to school is finish my laundry, do a couple of dishes, and find places for the stuff piled on my bed. Oh, and homework :/ It’s no where near perfect but it’s enough to tide me over until I do it all again when I move out of my dorm.

Kitchen Table Unfucked!

You know it. You’re avoiding it. Whatever the pile of nonsense is that your brain manages not to register every time you see it, you’re going to spend 20 minutes dealing with it. Extra bonus points if you’ve been putting it off for months or years.

When you’re done, high five yourself on an extremely productive few hours, and then go do something fun.

For this 20/10, we’re venturing back into the bathroom. We’ve already given it a surface wipedown, but this time, we’re going deeper. Get the gloves on, get out the scrub brush, and pay some attention to the grime around the faucets, the mysterious film on the shower shelves, the medicine cabinet, and I bet your toilet needs a good scrubbing. If there’s time left, wipe down your walls. You’d be surprised and grossed out by what accumulates there.

This 20/10, it’s time to start in on your flat surfaces. Coffee table, end tables, dresser tops, counters, dining room table. Anything that’s horizontal and accumulating shit, attack it! Don’t forget to wipe down/dust once it’s clear.

This 20/10, get the vacuum out, and get to hoovering! Start with the area with the heaviest foot traffic, and cover as much ground as you can in 20 minutes. No carpets? Spend this 20/10 sweeping, Swiffering, or mopping. Show your floors some love!

This 20/10, it’s back to the kitchen to get a little more done. Continue with dishes, clearing off the counters, wiping down the appliances, cleaning out the microwave, and anything else that needs doing in the kitchen.

This 20/10, head into the kitchen and start with wherever the biggest mess is. If your dishes aren’t done (which they should be, ahem), start there. If they are done (yay!), weed out old or expired food in the fridge, give your stove top a thorough cleaning, or continue clearing the counters.

Next 20/10: spend 20 minutes picking up the assorted clothes, shoes, and crap on your bedroom floor. This includes stuff that’s languishing in baskets, too.
