Another Week--Another Spring Cleaning Challenge

Last week stats: Aimee, 1 vs the house (specifically the 'Dreaded' pantry), 0

Yes, that is correct! My kitchen pantry is finally (as of last Thursday) being used for what it was meant for (well at least at our house where there's just my Farmer Boy and I)...
  • Kitchen appliances
  • Wood serving tray, bowl, etc.
  • Tablescapes, table linens (by season)
  • Seasonal dinnerware: right now that is mom's Friendly Village dinnerware, some Fiesta dinnerware, and one other pattern. Our everyday patterns -- Corelle--are in a regular kitchen cabinet along with an Oriental pattern from England and some glass dishes; another white set is in the hutch. (dinnerware is my weakness...)
There is still some fine tuning to do in the kitchen but I am :) about my progress there so far.

So now we have come to a new week and I've chosen a new challenge. Actually, I should say it was chosen for me...because with three rooms being repaired and remodeled, my youngest son's former bedroom has become a storage unit.
You think I'm kidding---sadly NOT:(

With more plans to complete cleaning, sorting and organizing
 the entry closet,
the bathroom storage areas,
our bedroom closet 
and the living room that is on its way to becoming another storage unit

AND with NO garage (BIG sigh) to use as a staging area...
PLUS with sorting all of mom's stuff still...
AND realizing we have way too much stuff and
 I don't want my kids to have to go through the stress of sorting  through it all someday...

I am attacking the 'dreaded' storage unit (formerly known as my son's room).
Wish me luck...his room has a reputation.

What's on your list for spring cleaning/decorating/organization today?
Blessings, Aimee

And yes, I took photos...just not ready to post them yet:)

Thanks for your encouragement...
but I must confess this week I've accomplished nothing. I'm blaming it on that little thing called the 1940 US Federal Census that was released this week...that and a new laptop:)
But now that I have made my confession, I feel the need to get busy and DO something.
Good luck with your cleaning too.
Blessings, Aimee

I will be more in the mood for spring cleaning when I see some sun coming through my dirty windows. I hope you and your family have a very Happy Easter, Aimee.

I can empathize with you Cathy! Looks like this coming week might be a little more motivating (sun)-I hope so:)
Have a wonderful Easter!
