Cleaning & Organizing Tips To Start Off 2018

The first of the year always gets me in the mood to make sure that things are clean and organized.  It seems like once all the Christmas Decor is put away, we need to do some serious cleaning and organizing to get the New Year started off in the right direction.

Here are some of my most pinned and viewed post for Cleaning and Organizing just about everything.

Cleaning & Organizing The Pantry
A pantry is pure luxury in my opinion and having one is a Blessing, however they can become a total mess in nothing flat.  In my last home it was your typical closet, so we added some door shelving and created a storage system that worked really great for us.

Our new home has a Walk In Pantry, so we added the same wire shelves and organized it to fit our needs too.

Organizing Kitchen Drawers - We have limited drawers in the new house, so keeping them organized is a necessity.

Our clothes closets seem to be the place that gets out of hand so easy.  In our last home I did a complete Master Closet Makeover Reveal.  Once organized, it was so easy to keep it that way.

Tips to make Cleaning easier.

  2. I once had a girlfriend that would leave her vacuum cleaner out so that she could say she was in the midst of cleaning if anyone popped in.
    I mentioned you on my blog this morning -as part of the "new" in last year. xo Diana

  9. Thanks for all these ideas. My linen closet is a big walk in and I love keeping it organized. It's the one "room" in my house that I can keep up with. Seriously, sometimes I just stand at the door and breathe in. It calms me from the chaos of the rest of the house.
    Any ideas of how to clean my cabinets? I tried one cleaner that left them streaked. I bought a bottle of Murphy's Soap to try next.
    Happy new year!

  10. Love the look back. I can't wait to see what 2018 holds for you in your new home!
