Motivational Monday? Spring Cleaning My Home.....

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Liberty Homes RS-#62825

JUST DO IT!

Did that "JUST DO IT" get you all motivated?  LOL!  We literally did our Spring Cleaning and went above and beyond this past weekend.

 Spring Cleaning Saturday and Sunday!

We moved as much as we could out of the bedroom and PAINTED. We cleaned out everything down to the closets so we could donate to Goodwill and .....declutter. A massive undertaking that was well past due.

 

Painting Bedroom

 

 

The paint job came out beautiful! A darker tone of cream with bright white trim.

Yup...we were proud.

Decluttered, painted, cleaned the room, blinds and curtains too! Amazing the tips we pick up in Real Estate and take into our own homes!

 

   

 

On Sunday we tackled our office (this is my side) and I cleaned so well I pulled out the networking plug on my printer.

Oops.....we spent the afternoon looking for a new printer (which I needed anyway, right?)

So...for a Motivational Monday I believe the motivation started on the weekend...and left me beat, sore, bruised, tattered and torn today......

But motivated me to start a new week with a clean home, home office and renewed ideas for Spring Cleaning my business.

One thing is for certain....all aspects of ones life have to be cleansed

.....organization in the home...and office.

Now to get that listing packet ready for tomorrow :)

Good for you!  I keep trying to cut through the clutter and then another short sale file lands on my desk and overflows to my dining room table and the chaos begins all over again.

I am trying to avoid this, but it looks like I will soon get into the groove of Spring cleaning myself.

I feel inspired, but not enough to actually do all that work.  I'm tired just seeing what you did.  It must feel great though to have your home clean and painted.

Great job Sally!  Love the colours you painted, they look soothing. As soothing as a really clean office! 

Good luck with your new printer/scanner/copier etc.

Sally- Your place looks awesome and cleared now! Isn't that just the grandest feeling! I love clearings. Especially when you can give all the clutter away. We have freecycle.org here and I just have so much fun meeting all the ladies that will come by and pick up my junk to turn into their treasure. My housekeeper is from Columbia and we save things for her, twice a year she takes it all to Columbia to clothe the poor people there that have run away from villages to the cities. You will have a wonderful week!
