I know most people do not like to work on Sunday because of the Sabbath, but it really depends on when the Sabbath is depending on your religion of lack of.
I feel that Its okay to work if need be, and it needs to be done today.
Today I will be cleaning as much of the house as I possibly can because next week is up in the air with appointments and work so I must be flexible, meaning get it done today!
I will start in my bedroom by vacuuming and dusting and then move to the living room since it will be vacant this evening.
Next is to clean off the dining room table, I do have paperwork scattered about since I am prepping for the taxes, and giving that room a quick vacuum and dusting.
Next of the kitchen, another good wipe down and a damp mopping, seems this room is used more than any other in the house so its always in need of refreshing.
The laundry room will get swept and a damp mop too! But I do not think I have enough dirty clothes for more than one load and I may do those since its going to be well below freezing the next couple a nights.
If I have time I will try to get to the bathrooms but just as the spare bedroom/ stockpile room and this office, they are not in serious need of cleaning and all are neat and organized.
Now how minimal was I last week? Did I fail big time or an I still on the wagon?
I did fantastic!
I went shopping very little for food so there was no more serious stock up, just soup and crackers.
I took my sister shopping on Friday night and that is when I did take advantage of getting All washing liquid for $1.99 a bottle. I did buy five bottles to add to the stockpile. What I did was buy the six 12 packs of diet Pepsi and got $5.00 back in ECB at CVS, Tony drinks those daily so I would have bought those anyways. Next I bought the All washing detergent on sale for $2.99 and I had a $1.00 manufacturer coupon for each, making them $1.99 each AND I had the $5.00 in ECB`s. With tax included I paid $6.48 after all the coupons, And then my sister gave me back $2.00 and took one for herself. So I ended up paying $4.48 for four bottles of washing detergent or another four months supply.
I did not try out the new comforter set but I will today, if I don`t like I pass it on next week.
I think I am improving as a minimalist. How about you?
