Gettin' It Done: Cleaning & Organizing

This is my first Gettin’ It Done week for this school year and I’m excited about it. I think some of the excitement is being able to go back to sleep for about an hour after my husband leaves for work every morning. Extra sleep = a happy Momma. You can read more about why I deep clean one room every six weeks.

Gettin' It Done Cleaning & Organizing One Room at a Time; Cleaning one room every six weeks (our off week) during the school year equals no spring cleaning for me. This week is the kitchen and pantry.

Gettin’ It Done by Cleaning & Organizing

I’m curious to see how this week goes, because of my new job. Although, I only work in the afternoons three days a week, I’m sure the days I work are not going to be as productive as I want. Organizing for school: I’ll be working on the lesson plans for the upcoming six weeks and filing away the previous work. A list will be made of the chemicals along with odd and end items we’ll need for Chemistry later on. I hate finding out I need something AFTER my trip to Miles City and end up spending more on the item at the feed store. ~ I really don’t like that!

Organizing for the kitchen and pantry: This week is my grocery shopping week, a list has to be made along with the meal plans for the next two weeks. I seriously need an Aldi’s and a Publix; grocery and meal planning almost puts me in tears when I know what I have to work with regarding stores. I’ll be deep cleaning everything in the kitchen. For the pantry, let’s just say, I’ll be spending most of my time in there. With hunting season opening this week, the grinder and all of the needed equipment for packaging meat will be moved over for easier access. All of the bulk items will be reorganized and a list will be made for our big shopping trip at the end of September.

Y’all, my quilt squares are all finished being pieced together, all I have to do is square them, so I’ll be ordering a square this week. I'll also be trying to choose a fabric for the sashing and the backing of the quilt. Hopefully, it won't take me two months like it did earlier this year. That sweater I mentioned before has become an afghan. My amazing husband made me a pair of large needles; while my yarn is not the correct weight for a warm afghan with these needles, it will be draped over my rocking chair.

Check out those needles.
