4 Weeks to a More Organized Home {Simplified}: Day 13 Update

If you missed this morning’s assignment, find it here.

Today was a calmer day after two very busy days… and that was so nice!

I was excited to discover that the space above my cupboards was nowhere near as dirty and dusty this time around as it was in April.

But the top of my refrigerator needed some desperate organization!

Ah! White space! I love it! 🙂

How did you do on Day 13? I’d love to have you share your progress and success with us so we can be inspired. Either post a link to your blog post below or leave a comment with your update.

4 Weeks to a More Organized Home {Simplified}: Day 12 Update

If you missed this morning’s assignment, find it here.

Today was another big day — and it was exciting, too! As of this morning, we’re now the owners of our first rental house!

I thought that today’s project would be pretty simple… and the microwave and stovetop weren’t too bad.

I typically clean them thoroughly at least a few times a week so they never get too awful.

And, just as I thought, they were bought fairly simple to clean.

But the oven… oh my! It was bad, with a capital B. I had forgotten that my Thanksgiving Apple Pies had spilled over. And burned on the bottom of the oven. Of course.

{Brace yourself if you are OCD about having a clean oven. In fact, you might just want to stop right here and skip to the next post.}

This is just a sampling of some of the burned gunk I cleaned off the bottom of my oven. Gross, I know!

It feels so good to know that all of that is cleaned out. And the house will likely smell better when I’m baking now, too! 😉

How you do on Day 12? I’d love to have you share your progress and success with us so we can be inspired. Either post a link to your blog post below or leave a comment with your update.
