Day 19 Challenge: Clean your entryway, sweep your garage and/or vacuum out your car
I would vacuum out the car, but we only have one and it is gone with my husband at work :).
So instead I decided to clean out the stroller
It looks so much better without cheerios, leaves, and crumbs in all the crevices. It also got a good wipe down with a damp rag. Ahh, much better :).
One of my goals for this year is to clean out and organize the garage. Nathan and I have been working on this goal as we have time. Sometimes we take 15 minutes and just make decisions, while other times we spend a few hours going through boxes and bins. It has been a work in progress for what feels like forever! And we did make significant progress on the garage this past weekend (when we thought we were getting a second fridge), so it has recently had some cleaning.
So here are the BEFORE pictures (blech.):
Now, I know that the task for today was to sweep out the garage, but I decided to spend a little bit of time sorting out the “Get Rid of It!” Pile.
This pile is a junk heap of: donate, sell, give back to rightful owner, give to someone who said they wanted it, and evaluate for trash.
I got going with this project, and it really didn’t take me long to process each item.
I will be donating my pile tomorrow, and Nathan said he would evaluate his items tonight. And I have decided to try my hand at selling some items on Craigslist. But since I have wanted to do that for over a year, I am imposing a goal of selling the stuff by May 31st. Otherwise, it’s being donated! And the recycling will be going back…soon.
There’s still more to do in the garage…but I am happy with what I accomplished today :). I still hope to have a really good photo to show off in a few months when the garage is COMPLETELY done!
And for those interested, here’s what Benjamin was up to today…
What did you tackle today? Anyone sort out a pile in the garage, or clean cheerios out of their stroller??
