Two weeks ago, I agreed to make my house happier with the Happy House Challenge.
The first week wasn’t so bad. But that second week…eek.
Here are my stats:
- Make the Bed – 7/7
- Empty the Sink – 6/7
- Sweep the Kitchen Floor – 3/7 *hangs head in shame*
- Clear the Clutter (from one room) – 5/7
So, it’s not the worst. But I definitely could have done better. Let’s see what’s on the agenda for this week:
How To Have a Happy House – Week 3
Sort the Mail: We all get it 6 days a week. Too often it just ends up in a pile on the kitchen counter. No more! Just remember that this is about organizing the mail. It doesn’t mean all the bills are paid that day or everything is filed, but things are in their place. It should either be in a “to do” area, “to file” area, the recycling bin or garbage.
Spray your Shower: Choose your favorite daily shower cleaner and get to spraying! Just get in the habit of spraying it down after you shower, and this task is a no brainer. There are also lots of home solutions you can try as well. Spray shower doors with full-strength white distilled vinegar after you’ve squeegeed the glass, or before you step in and turn on the water. It will help release the hard water deposits so they don’t remain on the glass.
Eek. I’ve never sprayed my shower daily. Yes, I clean it. But I don’t even own a daily spray. I guess vinegar it is! (And no, that’s not a picture of my shower. If I had this one, I would definitely keep it clean! :))
As for the mail, our subdivision has the boxes in one area for several houses and you need a key. This means I get the mail about once a week. So sorting it is always horrible. I guess I’ll try getting it every day and see if that makes it better.
How’d you do last week?
