Inspiration needed!

I am at a loss about what to work on.  I have 2 and a half weeks of summer vacation left and I want the house is tip-top shape before I return to work because I know me and I know our schedule and I know it won't get another good "going through" before October.  Not to say we won't clean, because we clean every week.  I am talking those big projects, the time consuming ones.  So I am asking for your list of projects, what are you working on?  Inspire me.

Re: Inspiration needed!

  • My current big projects would be, cleaning out and reorganizing the closest... all of them seem to be full in our three bedroom house and there are only two of us living in it! EEEK haha and also we have a lot of disigner nook things throughout the house so I am draging out the ladder and getting up there and cleaning them.

  • Hmmm...Our second closet scares me, mostly because it's all DHs stuff.  However, DH is gone this week.  Maybe I should get in there!

  • I've been in a cleaning out mood as of late.  My parents neighborhood is having a garage sale this week so that was my motivation.  I just went room by room and even tackled the basement and cleaned out.  I have a lot more stuff to sell than I thought I would!

    Isn't that the best feeling =) I love it when that happens then usually whatever doesn't sell I just donate it so I don't have to find places for it again afterwards =)

  • There's a ceiling fan in every room of our house.  Top of my to-do list tonight after work is to wash all of them, which includes dismantling parts of them.

    I wipe ours down really well about 3 weeks ago...

    I am tackling that closet!  The hard part is that it's full of computer parts and cords and I don't know if they are important!   He sounded nervous that I was going in there.  Maybe that will motivate him to work on it when he comes home!

  • We're in the process of packing up our apartment and moving at the end of the month.  So as I'm doing that, I'm weeding out everything that I didn't wear this summer - asking myself if I even wore it last summer - and if I didn't, it's being donated!!

    Same thing with our winter clothes that we'll be packing up in boxes/bags too.  Did I wear this last winter?  Nope.  Gone. Cool

  • Yay Summer vacation, I have a blog Maillardville Manor and we are always starting new projects.

    Currently we are working on refinishing a new dining table!

    We just finished our mudroom re-do in time for back to school.

    and A LOT of kitchen organizing, here's the link to all of that Kitchen Organization

    Good luck with you up coming projects

    This used to always motivate my ex-bf when we lived together--he was SO lazy about cleaning (and everything domestic, really), but if I went off and started on a big cleaning project without him, he would usually jump in so he would know where his stuff was. :p
