Deep cleaning and decluttering

I was working at a clients house the other day and realized that we miss things when we clean day to day. So I decided to remove everything from each space as I clean it and and put the things away that have a home.

KITCHEN

The first space that I tackled was the kitchen. This client had dishes on her counters and fruits and vegetables everywhere. Two simple things you can do that will make your kitchen more inviting. 1. Put all clean dishes away and clear up counter space. 2. Put all fruits and veggies in one bowl and style it in away that looks like art. Don’t forget to clean the fronts of your cabinets , as well as the garbage can.

BATHROOM 

When in the bathroom you want it to be as clean as possible as well as simple looking as possible. So I threw away products she no longer used and staged the products she did and stored the back ups. This left shampoo, conditioner and soap out.

LIVING ROOM 

I started by making the couches and chairs invited by fluffing the pillows and shaking out the covers. Did the basic dusting also tackled the ceiling fan. Wiped down and dusted the front door. Took care of her house plants.

 

Make sure to dust your house plants.

My closest system

It took me along time to figure out a closest system and one that actually works for me.

As you can see I have a color coordinating system and also sorted the clothes categories by style.

  1. coats
  2. dresses
  3. dress paints
  4. dress tanks
  5. dress t-shirts
  6. dress sweaters.

7. t-shirts

8. long sleeves

9. sweaters

10. Jeans

11. leggings

12. workout tanks

13.workout t-shirts

14. workout sweaters

 

I also enjoy the bin look and adding a mirror into your closest. My mother found this old door and we recycled it I guess you could say.

Ps. more coming your way.

It’s been awhile…….

I first want to start off with I kind of fell off the band wagon when it came to taking care of the things I care about.

I became super invested with my job which I was hopefully making become my career. I was blind sided and was demoted without being told I did anything wrong.

Life lesson #1 This took me by surprise but I decided to quite and now I realize it was the best choice for my mental health.  I felt I was not worth what they would say about me. That I was doing great and what not… I soon later realized that those statements didn’t matter. Doesn’t matter who likes you its only the person that matters if they like you.

Life lesson #2 Be who you are becoming something you want to be. Ive always wanted to work for myself and maybe one day grow my business so that I have employees.

At this moment I am doing small things to create an income and I would like to start a cleaning, organizing and decluttering business. I would like to do this in all aspects of someones home life; making systems that work for those you are blinded with clutter in daily life.

 

Adventures in Pittsburg

We have family in Pittsburg and we normally travel the second week in December for an early Christmas.

Down the street I believe butler street has amazing shops.

Theses are the fun shops we went to eat. I will say Pittsburg has really good food in general.

Butler street has a bunch of boutiques and fun hipster shops. I found this really cool thrift shop that’s more of a higher end shop.

Over all it was a super fun time and I got to spend time with family.

Cramming before travel….

Its funny we always say we are going to start preparing early but we never do. I know all the things that need to be done but i wait till the last minute anyways. Sense the whole family is leaving we have to have someone come over and animal sit.

This means according to my mom everything needs to be super clean. lol.(ME: put laundry away and I’m done) Anyways I’m regretting on getting started on everything even packing.

I started with my room i removed eveRelated imagerything off the floor it was mostly clothes and garbage. Then i started in one corner in my room and worked my way around with sweeping and i did the same thing with de-cluttering. I still need to was my bedding because I’m not sure what room my family members are going to sleep in.

Sorry mom but i didn’t really clean my closest i just shut the door. I mean you gotta do what you gotta do.

I continued this with all the other room upstairs.

Then final step i figure out what i need to pack.

 

 

 

MEMO!!! #Blogmas

Ive heard of Vlogmas but never of blogmas. So i wanted to do a shortened version of the month long festivities and just do the week of Christmas.

Prefect morning routine!

I’m sure many of us have been wanting to become an early riser but just don’t know how to get there. Lets just say i am a “grumpster”(extremely grumpy)without my morning coffee. I could live off coffee….. i think i have a problem.

I’m currently working on a project/challenge for myself and hopefully some of the things I’m learning will help you in your everyday life as well.

So people always talk about meditation and yoga. Blogger and Youtuber say it changes there day to day life. I’ve always wondered if it was true. I’ve done a few yoga classes and i enjoy it just seems like glorified stretching to me.   Image result for yoga poses

I have dabbled in some stretching in the morning time and i have completely enjoyed having that time for myself. I would say it defiantly helps get the blood flowing. I have to see what are some good yoga poses for lower back pain, headaches and anxiety.

Another big blogger idea is morning pages but i’m not sure if i want to wake up and think about how stressed i am. Same with writing a to do list i can see waking up and getting ready for the day and then figuring those things out.

PUTTING IT IN ACTION!!!

So the plan is to wake up at 5am Monday-Friday. I am looking forward to getting to bed early. HAHAHA Image result for rustic desk

So they always that you have to have a reason to get up early. My reason is to keep my space organized and to research/write blogs. Of course im not going to just wake up and start blogging. I would like to enjoy my mornings alittle more instead of just getting up out to bed and hurry to get ready for the day.

Id like to take a step back and enjoy my mornings so i can hopefully enjoy my day. My full time job isn’t really exciting so id like to be able to make my space something i cant wait to come home to.

Steps i can take in the morning are making my bed as soon as i wake up so i don’t crawl back into bed. Image result for rustic bedThis will also help with checking something off my list. So hopefully it will help me to keep the ball rolling. I tend to do laundry at night and just leave it in the hamper. So I’m hoping to put away my clothes after i get ready for the day.(brushing teeth and hair, washing face and changing)

I would also like to pick up my space so i don’t have to walk on top of everything. Or just the plan fact that i will know where everything is once i find a home for the misc things that i seem to collect.

This would also help me with getting dressed in the morning or i could possible layout my clothes the morning before.

Then my next step would be journal and also write out a to do list which I’m good atImage result for journals making but not doing. Also I’m not the best at randomly thinking of journal promps. I go with the basic what i should do or need to do and then things seem to flow from there.

I save work for last because if i only have so much time to get something done i will mostly complete it or get enough done. I normally save 2/3 hours a day for my blog. I enjoy writing and sharing my ideas but sometimes i like to relax and enjoy my night time routine. Which i will make another blog post about.

 

Making a Dream Board

I know we all have ideas of what a perfect person looks like and acts like. But is it realistic is anyone prefect…. I think not.

So what i believe that making a dream board would be the first step so you can see this everyday to remind yourself of you goals and desires.

My closest now is a great design i just wish it looked more eye appealing. I was thinking at looking at Ikea because they normally have reasonable priced furniture.

I like the idea of the baskets because i have a few items under my bed and Ive been trying to not have anything under it. It seems to just collect dust and now ill be able to just move my bed and sweep under it.

Find something i love to do everyday and not worry about making money. Just enjoy something i do and maybe find ways to connect with people.

Also make my blog into a beautiful platform and inspiring space to share my dreams and ideas.

Traveling is one of my passions i love seeing the world for its beauty. So many people go into life noise blend and live each day like its the worst day ever. I’m slowly realizing that we can decide how we live our lives. No one controls us but they can help direct us.

Places i would like to travel:

I know this may seem scary because at this point i and I’m sure a lot of us are not financially stable to just randomly hop on a plane. This is the only down side of making a dream board you realize how much work and time it will take to get to the places and lifestyle you would like. But you can always fill your dreams as long as your willing to put in the hard work.

 

 

Third step

Okay so I already figured out some things I believe I need to work on. I started with clothes, but my space is still dirty. I need to look at the spaces and places that need declutter and revamped.

            One space I would really like to work on is my desk. My desk doesn’t really make sense I just throw whatever I don’t want to put away on it. I’m not sure what my theme is going to be or what I would like to buy to place my papers and bills in. But that’s later down the road and I want to focus on what I have.

            Another space that was cluttered was my chair and basket in the corner of my room. I always throw my clean clothes over the chair, but I took care of those yesterday. But now I need to spruce up my chair and add some fun pillows and fluff up the chair some more. The basket just collects all the things that I know longer use or read. So, I think I will donate almost everything in the basket.

            A major task and space I need to clean is my bathroom and the cabinets. I had probably two loads of clothes on the floor and I was embraced I was like if anyone came over I would not let them upstairs. I have products I don’t use just sitting and collecting dust in the cabinets and under the sink. I walk in to my bathroom and look at my counter top and must search for my youth brush and tooth paste.

            I also have a closet that literally has trash and things that need to be donated. I look at it and just close the door. Let’s just say I do not want to start. This will probably be in a day of its self when I have a weekend day off.

            I would like to dust all and everything upstairs because I’ve been getting colds lately. I hate dirty glass, so I will Windex because my mirrors are so gross. I also need to sweep I have a cat and he sheds way too much. So this will wrap up the cleaning and clearing out my space.

 

To Do list:

  1. Throw all trash away and take them outside
  2. Declutter desk
  3. Declutter dresser
  4. Declutter cabinets in bathroom
  5. Declutter bookshelves
  6. Dust
  7. Windex
  8. Sweep
