    Default Spring Cleanup - Goals, Accomplishments, and Ongoing Tasks

    I had to tidy the house recently for two reasons: DD's birthday (needed a place to cool her cake) and my mom visiting (to help mind DD while DH and I met with DD's teacher & principal)

    It's not exceptionally tidy, but I did manage to mop (YAY!) which means the gross salt tracked into the house is no longer being spread over the floors.

    However, there are a few more areas to tackle, including the 3rd floor (while the weather's still cool!) ... so, here's this week's schedule:

    MONDAY, 3/14

    GOALS:

    • Replace 3rd floor closet doorknob with LOCKING doorknob (to prevent DD from playing there).
    • Get cedar hangers for clothes on clothes rack.
    • Evaluate any hanging clothing for style, fit, and possible use in the next 6mos-1yr.
    • Throw away anything that won't be used.
    • Round up outgrown/baby toys DD has scattered all over the place & put into empty bin.
    • Decide what to do with binned toys.
    • Clear up green Easter grass DD scattered all over the place.
    • Throw out anything not in use.
    • Make a final keep/toss decision about any big baby items.


    TUESDAY, 3/15

    GOALS:

    • 3rd floor landing
    • 2nd floor landing
    • 1st floor landing


    WEDNESDAY, 3/16

    GOALS:

    • Master bedroom floor pickup
    • Vacuum Master Bedroom floor
    • Launder sheets & duvet covers
    • Launder drapes
    • Wipe down blinds
    • Clean windows
    • Dust dressers, nightstands, bed-frame


    THURSDAY, 3/17

    GOALS:

    • Vacuum stairs
    • Collect "birthmas" gifts for shipping
    • Address photo mailer for ILs
    • Help DD write note to ILs to enclose w/photo
    • Clear kitchen table

    The only "big" item on the list that didn't get done was the doorknob replacement because I can't remember where DH and I stashed it.

    My goal is the basement. Last week I organized my "party shelves", the shelving where I keep all the supplies I need when we throw a party. The area had gotten disorganized somehow so I got that back in shape. Yesterday I started the "dump everything here" room. Ugh. Why do have so much stuff?? Oddest find? A box of Harry Potter movie 4 valentines; they are awesome! I did keep those but I donated 2 large boxes and 1 garbage bag worth of stuff to the Veterans. I love the ease of scheduling front porch pick ups! Lots more to do today (and tomorrow...).

    ACCOMPLISHMENTS:

    • 2nd floor landing
    • 1st floor landing


    While these areas are not totally done, I do have a better idea of what's going on there.

    The 3rd floor landing needs to be done when the weather is cool.

    I also lost a day with last-minute purchases for dinner prep.
