31 Days to Clean - Day 4

Day 4 of the 31 Days to Clean challenge. Today's post talked about personality types and how we best clean. This week, listing out my "six most important things" is working very well for me. A strict schedule cramps my style, but telling myself that I will complete a, b, and c from the list by lunch and x, y, and z by dinner is working extremely well. Our house is actually staying pretty clean!

The cleaning assignment for today is the living room. Our living room is usually the cleanest room in the house, probably because we spend almost all of our waking hours here. A long time ago, the clutter drove me crazy and I spent a week long vacation cleaning and reorganizing our living room. We work, play, and relax in our living room and I try to keep it fairly clean.



The extra office chair is our cats' chair. Of course, they slept there more before we bought the new office chairs. They prefer whichever chair we are sitting in, not one that's designated the "official cat hair collector."

We also have a canvas library book bag that we keep next to the coffee table. When we finish a library book, we toss it into the bag and always have books ready to return. Of course, our cats love lying on the bag or rubbing on it and it is also covered in cat hair. Gotta love those cats!

Your pics for today look about as different as mine are going to tomorrow also. The livingroom is basically cleaned everyday here too. But I love the idea about the library bag. Very smart!
