Spring Cleaning

Today is all about lists and cleaning!  I have a ton on my list to clean.  Yesterday I cleaned out our medicine cabinet, I should have taken a before picture!  I had a whole trash bag full of old medicine and other things.  I now have a totally organized medicine cabinet, so if you need a Band Aid I know just where to find one....
Today I will tackle the laundry room.  We have a freezer that sits just about 1 foot from the wall and at some point in time we (I) started stacking things in this tiny space, it now is a junk pile all the way up to the top of our stand up freezer and onto the top of the freezer and so I have a big mess.  If we ever want to get this house on the market I have got to get busy, so today is eliminate the mess in the laundry room day.  Tomorrow I am going to clean all the base boards in our house as well as the hall closet.  I think I will take pictures so you can see my progress.
I want to buy the boys new quilts for their room and give them a new look.  They have had a Spider Man room, an under water room, a jungle room, an airplane room and as of today their room is just a room I have taken all the pictures off the wall and painted we now need to order their new quilts, I found these at Target. I thought this lamp would look great and maybe this rug too.  I just know Kristen at We are that Family will love them because she is all about the Rodeo these days, go read and she is having a contest this week too.  I thought I would hang these barn stars on wall maybe three of them and stencil " Real Cowboys Sleep Under The Stars..." 
So I have alot to do before we can put the house on the market.  I will post pictures later.  I must go teach my child how to add double digits today.

I just cleaned out the medicine cabinet right before we left on vacation. It was BAD!

Now there are little bins and labels and color coordination. It looks like the medicine cabinet in someone elses house. I LOVE it.

Let me give you some advice on the base board cleaning. Next time you need a punishment for your kids (sometime in the next 10 minutes if your house is like mine :o)

Give them a cloth and make them do a room! IT is a GREAT punishment and your baseboards get clean! I also do this with the light switches.

Happy Cleaning!

An idea....my cousin did a western/cowboy theme for her son's room too and she tacked rope along the top of the walls as a border. It was very cute. She didn't just do it in a straight line, she had loops in it. Like a lasso!?KWIM?!! ;0)

Blessings.
Oh and the baseboard consequence....Im gonna use it too!
