The benefits of cleaning are clear:
- Your house is a pleasant place to be
- You’re able to find items when you need them
- You can actually have company over without having to scramble
- It can also save you money
I’ve been a part of a cleaning challenge that has really whipped my house into share rather quickly.
I’ve been jotting down notes in my cleaning journal that I named “Owl Get it Done ™”. ” If anything is broken or in need of repair, I write it in my journal. I also write down the people I need to call if there’s something that requires outside help. It’s a good way to keep track of people and their contact info. that you probably only use once a year (especially if you forget to put their number on your phone.
I also write down what I need to buy. After cleaning my bathroom for this recent challenge, I realized I need to buy caulk for my tub. I rather nip a problem in the bud. It’s best to deal with issues while they’re small and still manageable. The few dollars I shell out for caulk and the time I devote now will save me in the long run. It also prevents a potential financial headache down the road if water were to leak behind the walls, that could be very costly to fix.
I cleaned the bathroom today. I used an eco-friendly solution of water and vinegar. I also repurposed my newspaper (freebie) to clean and dry the mirror. Who knew the best solution was green and so cheap?
