Organizing and cleaning around the house......

Recently I bought a book called "Cut the Clutter", because although our house isn't cluttered I love books about house keeping. And I have found quite a few good ideas for organizing our closets, clothing, etc.



This is a photo of our linen closet after I got done organizing and labeling it. One of the ideas I tried from the book was putting each sheet set inside one of the matching pillow cases.






I just cleaned the newly "decluttered" and organized bathrooms, so thought I'd include some pictures of them. :-) I found a bathroom cleaner by a brand called "Method" that is supposed to be a lot more natural and healthy to use than regular cleaners. Their tub and tile cleaner actually works really well for removing soap scum and mould.

When I went through my clothes closet, I found more clothes to sell or donate than clothes I actually wear! Oh, dear. Haha So we are planning to have a garage sale in a few weeks. Should be fun. :-)

Ha! Australia has grown on you...I love the way you spelled 'mold' as 'mould'! It's getting to be in your blood, isn't it (or, ain't it)? Take care!
