I never said it would be perfect but it will still be pretty fun (also known as house cleaning!)

room d Happy Saturday! Today we are having an epic home-cleaning day. Re-oraganising cupboards, sorting clothes onto racks in some kind of order (!), putting towels with towels and bed linen with bed linen on their own shelves. Choosing to stay home with John so we can tackle this might not be something we'd want to do every weekend, and is not the most exciting thing in the world, but I just keep thinking how good it will feel when it is done. A bit of order in the home goes a long, long way! And there will be plenty of coffee breaks to keep us energised. And that is definitely a good thing. I wonder what hidden, long forgotten treasures we'll find? room c

Love your shoe storage :) Mine are crammed in boxes under the bed due to sheer lack of room - but if I ever upsize I'll certainly be displaying them like this.

These days aren't fun, but worth their weight in gold!

Best of luck to you two, housekeeping is hard work! For me, the most difficult part of organizing is realizing that cat hair really does eventually make its way onto everything.

My boyfriend and I really need to find time to do the same thing. Our apartment is so unorganized-- and we haven't even lived in it for a full year! Just gotta keep imagining the results, I guess!

There is such a librating, fantastic feeling that comes once a good, thorough tidy and/or organization is done. I always feel like it's more than worth hours (or days) of elbow grease to experience it - with the added bonus of a tidy, wonderfully well organized house to boot! :)

Blah I need to do that too.. I really should take your approach and dedicate a whole weekend rather than just sporadically cleaning here and there throughout the week.. maybe next weekend..
