Lately I have been feeling overwhelmed….do you get that feeling?
I think we try to fit so much into our lives and every now and then we get a wake up call….in our house it has been sickness that made the call this time.
When you get sick you only do the bare minimum of housework, you drag yourself to work and school…and that is about all that happens. Then when you start feeling better and you notice the dirt on the floor, the mountains of washing and all the jobs that you have let go….and your sewing mojo comes back too! So what do you do?
I found some great organising tips on Pinterest and some links to great free printables to help me along the way!
So this month I am following the Clean and Organised calendar that you can get here at Clean Mama! So far so good!
I am also trying to be more organised with my blogging so that I can post more regularly. I found this great weekly calendar for blogging here at Living Locurto.
This week I set myself a cleaning goal – to clean out the pantry. And you know the week ticked by until it was the last day….so I rolled up my sleeves and got the job done!
Beware! Before photos!
It is amazing how much stuff gets dumped in the pantry!
So I took everything out, washed all the shelves off and put the shelf mats through the washer and dryer. And I threw out 3 big garbage bags of empty glass jars, old papers and out of date items. Don’t worry the geese and chooks got a feed too!
Then I put the good stuff back!
Look, you can see gaps!
Wow! What a difference…there are even empty trays! I am so glad that job is done!
Since starting my new cleaning and blogging schedules I feel more calm and in control. And that has to be a good thing!
And I even got some sewing done too! More on that next time!
