My Minimal Hoarding life - Mid Week Check In

January 25, 2017 - Am I making an effort?

That would be a big yes! Although I am overworked, but what woman isnt?, I am keeping up with the house work as a working woman can, a little at a time. 

However, I am giving up about an hour of working online. I will say that I am not missing anything because its easy to catch up with online work if I do not go on any of the social media sites. Work first, being social next :)

Lets see how far I got in just a few days :


I got caught up with a few things that slid passed me on the weekend, I only had one day off and half of it was used to grocery shop. 
One was laundry, since I tale care of someone sick in my own home I do sheets a few times a week, I added his quilt this week.

I did three loads of laundry, folded and put them away.

I cleaned the kitchen up. I mean I swept, mopped and cleaned the sink. Wiped down all the counter tops.

I swept and mopped the pantry and laundry room.


I stated the morning off with doing my own hair, I dyed the roots and since my live in patient needed a bath before an appointment, I had to clean the tub so I did that while waiting to wash out the hair color. Cleaned it in the morning instead of evening. 

His bathroom was awful! I cleaned the entire room, it took all of the thirty minutes I had before washing the color out.

I scrubbed the bathtub and sink with comet and the toilet with scrubbing bubbles with bleach. I mopped the floor with lemon Mr. Clean. No more bad smells at all! I removed the bat rug and washed it and put down another clean one.


Today I work two jobs so I do not expect to do anything in my house.

How about you? Have you managed to get anything cleaned up?

  1. It's been such I crazy week. I am so busy I don't know if I am coming or going.

  2. Hurrah for you! So far this week...I spent Monday in town and haven't even burned *this week*'s trash. (Burning the trash is always the cleaning chore I do first...unless you count "cleaning" my body and any reusable dishes I've used.)

    1. I try not to burn, cant breath already :/
