It’s FINALLY August. August means that we have *almost* survived the summer and the lovely cool fall temperatures are coming soon. August means Back to School time! I always loved school, which is probably why I ended up with a master’s degree that I don’t want to use. School supplies are one of my most favorite things in the world and I can’t stop myself from buying a spiral, pens, or folder every time I step in Walmart these days.
August also seems like a time for cleaning out, cleaning up, fresh beginnings. Since moving into our house, I’ve thought a lot about how often and how well I should be “deep cleaning”. We do a good cleaning every two weeks. But an all out deep clean? That sounds like soooo much work. I have also been really into cleaning things out, I guess because I am in disbelief that we completely fill a three bedroom house. We don’t even have room for a baby someday!
So, I’ve spent a lot of time on Pinterest searching for good “cleaning lists”. But, being an avid list and plan maker, I decided to make my own. At first my plan was to take a month and deep clean and clean out every single room in the house. I soon realized that was
a bit completely crazy. So, I am instead aiming for one room each month. I will make a list of all the things that need to be cleaned and cleaned out and have the whole month to make it happen. That seems manageable.
So for August, my room is the office/craft room/”Oliver’s room”. At the end of the month I’ll write another post detailing what all I cleaned/cleaned out and maybe some before/after pics if I get to really tackle the closet like I want, and need, to!
