UFYH

I will admit  I am not the neatest person, I am trying to get better at this. So I decided to Read Unfuck Your Habitat by Rachel Hoffman after seeing an official Facebook group titled this. I just learned by Google that is is also a blog, boy am I behind or what. I just started it last night and I am not very far into it but I am hoping to learn something from it. Not a dig at anyone, but growing up cleaning house was not something that was thought to be a priority in life and boy do I wish it was.  I will admit since we moved in I haven’t been able to maintain a maintenance level of clean. Lots of things will add into this but for the last few weeks I have maintained the first floor. By cleaning when River goes outside till she comes back in. She normally goes out every hour for around 15 minutes. I can normally get the whole first floor swept while she is out and then mopping broken up into two different trips. She tries to eat the mop and broom. No My second floor is still a mess other then the boys bathroom which C and I tackled last weekend. I plan on tackling all the bathrooms today after I go get another toilet brush, our last one bit the dust. How to get my upstairs unfucked? Also I have a few cleaning questions.

Do you have a toliet brush in each bathroom?

How often do you vacuum your carpeted stairs?

How often do you mop your floors?

Seriously Dusting is the worst, How Often?

I miss my schedule

This summer I got a pretty good schedule down, I was getting up a bit before Ian getting ready. Then had a cleaning a routine which surprisingly worked great. I want to get back there but I feel overwhelmed in the process of getting back to the maintainable level the routine brings.

We are still unpacking some of our things a month later, I hate unpacking. I can’t avoid what is left though cause some important things are still missing. I remember what it took me to get there in our apartment and in reality it wasn’t more then a couple of days of hard work. I don’t know why I am so afraid to try again. Maybe it is the added stress of unpacking.

I hope that by putting this out there, someone will have some advice.

Clean Home Movement- Kitchen

I posted the other day about my Clean Home Movement. Well I decided to tackle one of the more chaotic rooms first, the kitchen. The room that can go from clean to cluttered in 60 seconds. I think my biggest problem is my cabinets not be used to the best purpose. I am about to show you pictures of my kitchen in all its cluttered glory right after cooking dinner. So remember I am keeping it real and want help advice not attacks please.
Clean Home Movement

My biggest trouble area seems to be my cabinets, there is always chaos no matter what I try to do with it, I can’t find a thing. I am thinking that maybe buying cabinet shelves might help. What other ideas do you think might help either with or with out cabinet shelves?

As you can see from the above photos, I am lost on how to get this disaster organized. Please give me ideas, I can’t live with this anymore, I hate having to dig to find a Tupperware container, a certain small kitchen appliance I might need, the prefect spice when cooking a meal, and most important the perfect snack when a craving hits.

Attached to the kitchen is the sunroom that we use as our dining room. It also is home to our back door so I have placed a chair and shelf. The shelf is home to my reusable shopping bags, my purse, and a basket on the bottom shelf for shoes. My Basket for shoes is not really working as well as I would like. The top of the shelf is home to some of my pretties.

Lightbulb Moment to a Clean Home Movement

Remember back in June when I posted my cleaning schedule I did well unitl Casey went back to work and then I failed (no excuses, I am the only one to blame). Well I am getting my groove back and getting caught up everywhere, man it was so easy to slip back into bad habits. This time I came to a realization that part of the reason that my home seems to be always cluttered is we aren’t utilizing storage space properly and with some talking with my husband he agreed to let me revamp and improve. So with some thinking, I thought I would keep it real on here and post pictures of my problems my ideas for fixing and then ask you for your ideas too. Cause I know that you guys/gals are a wealth of information. Then I will take those ideas and make them happen as long as they don’t cost a fortune. Please keep in mind that we rent so no structural changes can be made. I will be starting out with my kitchen, I will be including pictures of the before and I will be keeping real, no precleaning before the pictures. I am bound and determine to make keeping my home easier by making the most of the storage areas I have. I hope this is making sense to you all, as it is making to me.
All the areas that will be featured are Kitchen/Sunroom, Living Room/Office Nook, Bathrooms, Ian’s room, Hall Closets, Laundry/Guest Room, Casey’s bathroom, Main Bathroom, The Big Closet, My Closet, and The Master bedroom. Yes I need help everywhere, I am a mess. So please be ready with your tips tricks and advice.
