Ooh, I want to get to my closet one of these days, too! Though the shelves and cube units will be more helpful to do first.

Dejunked basket in laundry room. Nice old towels in box to give to local pet rescue. Stained towels in trash. Now, basket holds microfiber towels, and the extra pad for my floor steamer. Yay!

Back in sister's closet: two bags of old shoes/trash...too old to give away.

Took out everything on floor and repurposed/reorganized it. Got rid of some shirts too short for sis. Got rid of some purses, etc.

Have a whole big basket of things to box up for Goodwill.

Closet still needs work on top shelf and a few more shelves of a bookcase she uses for casual clothes. Then, we start work on her other closet!! Someday, I will do my bedroom.

Took 4 antique dining chairs to goodwill and several boxes of books

Another several boxes of books ready to go, and several boxes of small appliances that are still good but we don't use them

Cleared and organized part of sister's closet. She is now working on it further

Made plan for my bedroom...to box up xmas stuff under bed and place in garage.

To move beautiful low chest under my bed. Yes I have a very high bed.

To place small side table where chest is and clear it out to hold dvds.

Get nice bureau for where my small table and chest is. To move the hanging cloth shelve contents into the bureau. This will free up the a c intake grid in my closet. I will clear out that side of closet and organize it.

Get rid or store extra nice blankets in cedar chest.

Organized part of pantry and placed summer outside place settings over fridge cabinet which wasn't being used.

Much more to do but must pace myself.

We are getting in new floors in most of the house so I have been slowly boxing up books and vases etc for that. Good to dejunk the closets at this time to make sister's closets workable.

Moved some things in front of the couch and on the living room floor, created a new space for my work rolling cart to go where it isn't in the way. Vacuumed the area, so it looks really neat. I now have more room for exercising, which is very cool. I've temporarily got receipts (taken from the floor by the couch) on the desk. I want to go through them, and not let them grow! I'll start in after dinner, and see how far I get.

I'm so happy with this clear new space, but as I said in my previous post (about 3 months ago), I need to work on maintaining my OOs, and not losing them back into the clutches of clutter!

I didn't get to the vacuuming, but I've cleared an area of floor space between the kitchen and dining table that had just collected piles of stuff. The relief and satisfaction are so strong when I clear the clutter. I just have to figure out how to maintain these gains, and not let them return to a cluttered state!

Cleaned out most of under my bed. Will finish it, and vacuum thoroughly. Organized my art corner and fit a nice dog bed there. Pooch feels safe in her little multiuser corner.

Organized my exercise room last week. It is nice and functional with my new futon which I use as a PT table.

I cleared z spot on the living room floor, and now have a place for my rolling cart/bag that I take to work every day to sit where it's not in the way when I exercise. I like having well-defined places for things!

Scrubbed the stove top and cleared some unnecessary items from the corner. Also scrubbed the dish mat that sits to the side of the sink opposite the drainer. For some reason it gets hard dark stains that need scouring off. While it was drying, I scrubbed the counter underneath where it sits; it wasn't real dirty, but I like how clean it all is now!

I got rid of most of the junk on my hall table, and moved a chair from the den to my room, vacuuming everything in sight. A new recliner for the den is coming tomorrow.

(I also posted this on the SPED thread)

My wonderful GG co-leader posted a seasonal challenge for Spring on Spring Cleaning. It's a long post and when I saw it last night (she posted it earlier in the week), I got intimidated. But I had it in mind when I sat down with my timer to empty the 2 seltzer 12-pack boxes (on the floor near the "pantry" shelving unit that I've simply been retrieving cans from) onto their designated shelf. There are 5 shelves in this particle-board unit, some more cluttered than others, so I emptied just ONE of them, tossed a couple things, put a few in the donations area in the hall, transferred a few to a different home, and organized what was left to make it clear what gets "homed" there. So now one of the 5 shelves is an official OO.

Sis asked if I was okay, as I vacuumed the first floor and scrubbed the kitchen, dining room, and back porch floors. I had energy for once!

Decluttered and cleaned 1/4th of my bedroom. Got my new bedside table at my bedside. Repurposed old table to hold my coloring books, coloring pens, and a basket of misc stuff that I will attack on another day.

Kitchen cleaned.

Broke down boxes, unloaded stuff, recycled.

Tomorrow, if all goes well, I will put together my computer desk for my bedroom.

And I spiffed up my kitchen OOs--stovetop and cutting board (currently pulled out and drying). In the last few days I cleared and wiped of the top shelf of my Mr. Cart that holds phone, clock and vitamins. It had gotten badly dusty, with expired coupons. So that another new OO!

I think the best thing to do is just be consistent in cleaning off surfaces every so often. My bedside table is your stove...lol!

We cleared out a lot of the back porch. It is going to be my exercise room. I have a reclining bike, and plan to have a table back there I can do my toning exercises. I may just move the euro couch from the front den to the back porch. I could flatten that and use it like a PT table. Sis was itching to buy a leather loveseat for the den.

Joined team 7/16/17. My 1st OO is the top of my stove. I hate having to move stuff in order to use the stove. I am striving to keep it cleared off. I do have a bedroom that I am turning into a craft room since my granddaughter moved out. It is a long process. I was making a good effort until it got hot (no AC in the room). Once the AC is put in the window, I will return to that room. It was a huge mess.

My OOs fell by the wayside a while ago, and I was about to make excuses, but then thought "This is nuts! It will only take me 2 or 3 minutes to clean my stovetop!" So I did, and I have one OO back--and I think this post hits 100 points tonight.
