Hey all! It has been a few days since I have posted. I hope everyone is doing well. ♥
As I am sure you guys have noticed by all my Fall posts, I have been really in to this season already. This week I decided to do some much needed reorganizing and cleaning to prepare for the Winter season — I know it is only October, but before we know it, the first snow fall will be hitting the ground. Gulp!
The first task I needed to tackle was the storage in our bedroom. We live in a two bedroom apartment, so we do not exactly have a ton of space. But that being said, we are super fortunate to have a few areas where we can put things that keeps our belongings out of the way.
We have all this storage available at the top of our closets, which is AWESOME. But the issue is that over the summer, it has become so unorganized and just a mess!
First task, was taking everything down and seeing everything that was up there.
Then I went through everything and sorted out what we needed, and what we could donate/sell.
SO MUCH STUFF!
I purchased these XXL Ziploc bags to store all our summer clothes in. I love these! I actually bought them from the Dollarama, super cheap but the perfect form of storage when you do not have a lot of space.
I then organized all our extra bedding, and made sure to label the totes that way I could locate things a bit easier.
Although it may not look that much different, this is SUCH an improvement!
Next I wanted to tackle the spare closet. This is the before!
I used the same steps to clear out this area. I first took everything out of the closet, figured out what we did/did not need, and then began to reorganize.
I swept and cleaned off the shelves, just tidying up the space before I put everything back. I wanted to make sure I deep cleaned the area, because I knew I wouldn’t be doing this again until the new year.
Ahhhhhh! That feeling when things are organized and you can locate everything and anything you may need.
After this deep cleaning in the bedroom, I wanted to go around and clean all the fans. I didn’t take any pictures of this process because it was honestly so disgusting, so dusty. But what a difference now that they are all clean!
Next I switched around our dog’s bedding, because who doesn’t love a fresh bed to lay on?
And then my least favorite part of all — cleaning the floors. I wanted to add this in here because I love putting Lemon essential oil in the water that I use to mop my floors. It makes such a difference, and the smell is a highlight.
Alright guys, that is it for my post today. I hope you guys enjoyed cleaning around the house with me. I find these type of posts so motivational and relaxing. When I see somebody else cleaning their space, it makes me want to do the same! Is that silly? Am I the only one?
Nonetheless, I hope you all have the best day. And a great week! Happy hump day.
