Some days are like this…

You just don’t feel up to large cleaning projects…or much of anything else. So…it is a good thing that I did a couple of extra projects last week that I can talk about today. 😉

As a continuation of the resolution to clear out the old and organize the new, I was determined to take care of the counter top in the master bathroom. Here’s what I started with:


For some reason, the mail-order pharmacy we use just keeps sending pills that often aren’t close to empty before the next batch comes. I don’t know why that is. But it had led to a few completely outdated bottles that I tossed. And then I organized the rest of them…on MY half of the counter, at least…


Managed to keep it this way over a week now. That’s impressive for me. 😉

And then there was the “make-up” drawer:


I last wore make-up in about 2008. So nothing in that drawer that was of that ilk was safe to use, even if I decided to start being America’s Next Top Model tomorrow.

This looks much better:


All the make up tossed. And the drawer put to a more practical use–first aid and the hair dryer.

Still a long way to go in organizing the house, but working hard to keep everything done so far straightened up.

Our subreddit RedditDayOf recently had a “Cleaning Tips” day, and I got some great tips. So, here are a couple that I am passing along to you. 🙂

Clean My Space is a YouTube channel with video hints and tips.

55 Must Read Cleaning Tips and Tricks is a list with links to a lot of good cleaning information.

And UFYH is a tip site with a naughty name, but a lot of good advice. They even have an app for that!

That’s it for today. Sorry to be so slim on the actual content, but at least it is something. 😉
