Nesting fully took over in the third trimester. I already was an organizing freak, feeling the need to reorganize things weeks after I had just done them. But, when nesting took over it was a different beast. I dedicated two full weeks to cleaning and organizing our house, one room at a time. I went through my Pinterest boards for a lot of cleaning and organizing ideas. I walked through each room of our house and wrote down things I wanted picked up, organized or cleaned. Then I made a plan. I set a few hours a day aside to work on each room, since I was off work for summer break I had a lot of extra time. I’m not going to go through what I did in each room for you but I did want to share some of the things I found on Pinterest that are tried and true.
This is a quick organizing fix, put user manuals in a 3 ring binder with sheet protectors.
I’m ashamed to admit that I had never cleaned my Keurig. I honestly hadn’t thought about it before seeing this pin on Pinterest. I followed all the steps and was very pleased with the results. I plan on doing this every few months from now on.
Great cleaning trick for the microwave.
I organized all of my recipes into two binders.
My washing machine definitely needed cleaning the most. This tutorial was great, along with the results. But, it didn’t clean it 100% like it shows in the pictures.
I was most impressed with the results from cleaning my dishwasher. We have hard water and the dishwasher can get a funky smell, this not only cleaned it but got rid of the smell. It’s been over a month now and it’s not back.
I made a receipt organizer for my office. I’ll work on a post for this to explain how it’s used, but I definitely recommend this. All I have to do at the end of the month is pull out the receipts and file them. I know I’ll really praise this post come tax time.
Laminate tiles in the pantry…genius! I had hubs do this the day after I pinned it. I love the results and how everything in the pantry is not falling between the cracks anymore.
