The organising task was to get a laundry routine in place. I sort of already have one, I put on one load a day and then on the day I strip the beds I wash all the bedding and on the day I clean the bathroom I wash all the towels and bathmats. But it occurred to me today that I have a huge cupboard in the laundry and I'm only using one shelf. I store all my cleaning products and laundry powder nice and high so that my small children can't get to them, and that leaves about four big shelves underneath that are empty. I'm thinking about getting some tubs or baskets to label and use to sort my washing. Perhaps darks, coloureds, whites and towels/sheets? Hmmm, might have to see what Martha thinks about it. I might have to check out her laundry systems and get some more ideas.
Then the decluttering task was to declutter the laundry pile. I am up to date with my washing at the moment, so I don't need to worry about that. Luckily.
So, do you want to see some piccies of the finished result?
Nice and clean and organised! I am loving this challenge, I'm really cleaning things properly, not just giving them a once over and it's nice to have some direction. Then all I'll need to do is schedule the bigger tasks into my calendar so I don't miss them in the future!
See you tomorrow! I wonder what the next challenge will be?
