Easier to clean!

I hosted a luncheon/playdate today at home for two other moms, and their girls (best friends of DD). I felt like it didn't take much work to straighten things in the house a bit before their arrival (although, these were great friends who never care what my house looks like, anyways!) . I also baked banana bread and a quiche before they arrived.
I am finally starting to feel the effects of all my purging/organizing efforts! I still have a ways to go to get better organized, but I feel like I have made progress.

That's awesome! I know for me, I am still struggling with the mindset I can't have spontaneous visitors, the place must not be clean enough! But it is!

Re: Easier to clean!

Great job! Isn't it freeing? I felt like that initially after the first big clean out, but unfortunately, now my standards are so much higher, so I want to keep cleaning out and organizing / downsizing even more!

Re: Easier to clean!

I think that is one of my favorite things about not having a bunch of stuff. I don't like putting stuff away and cleaning all the time!

Yes, it's so much easier to run the vacuum and give the counters a quick wipe for visitors than when you have to spend hours straightening and putting away first! I love having a cleaner home. Congratulations!

Well, don't be too jealous! My kitchen counters are once again cluttered. Although, I guess it's just dinner dishes clutter. If I had energy I might try to tackle them. Very tired tonight for some reason....honestly, I don't think I'm pregnant!
