Monthly Cleaning, Month #3

Two months of cleaning down! How’s it been going? I’ve cleaned the office and the living room and now the room for October is the guest room!

The living room cleaning went well. I don’t think I met my goal of getting rid of 10 things, but it’s so hard to find books and DVDs to get rid of! We did throw away A LOT of magazines, so maybe that counts?…. My favorite part of cleaning the living room is conditioning our leather couches. I think you’re supposed to do that every few months, but we’ve only succeeded in once a year. But it’s so fun. They look and smell like new!

I’m dreading the guest room a little bit… It’s our “storage room” and I really want to do a good job cleaning it out. It will be our baby room, whenever that happens, and I want to get a jump on getting it cleaned out. But so much of what we have in there is sentimental. My husband and I are both “sentimental hoarders”. We cannot get rid of something if it has even a little bit of emotional value. That’s a problem. Does anyone else struggle with this??

  1. Yes! I call it nostalgia hoarding, and I am terrible at it. Making shadow boxes is a big, big help. And I’ll tag you in the ticket stub/paper nostalgia craft I did on instagram. It helped a ton.
