I had a busy day and caught up on some housecleaning. I did laundry, vacuuming and dusted. I also took a 2+ mile walk. I hope that you all had a good day.

I use vinegar and baking soda as my primary cleaning agents. In fact, I recently realized that I don't even have any commercial type cleaners in the house!

I worked on laundry today. Afterwards, I mopped the kitchen floor and did some decluttering. Also, running errands took up part of the day. I did get in a walk Kept my food intake in check today. So, all in all, a pretty good day.

Welcome 4ROSEMARY!

CLR does a good job on limescale.

Don't waste your time with "could've," "would've" or "should've." Focus on "can," "will," and "do."

Time will pass no matter what .... will I be closer to or farther from my goals

It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not. Finally, I am ready to change!

Hi! I'm new here, so hopefully I'm posting in the correct place (if not, let me know!).

I know the first mission is to shine my sink. Where I live, I have well water that is very hard, with limestone and iron deposits. Can anyone recommend a good cleaner to help with the limescale buildup? My first sink shining session is going to take some scrubbing! I plan to get groceries tonight, so if anyone has found a product that helps with limescale, please let me know. (My sink is stainless steel, by the way, but it looks grayish white with the limescale.)

I'll make it my plan to shine my sink over the weekend.

Good morning!

We had a crazy busy weekend at the shop. We stayed open late because of the festival, and wow, talk about long days! It was worth it, we did really well this weekend. However, I'm looking forward to things being more normal this week.

I am also retired and do my decluttering throughout the day. I have more energy in the earlier part of the day. Therefore, I do it either in the morning or afternoon. Today was a high calorie day for me. I need to cut down tomorrow. Still getting in exercise during the day.

Sigh. Starting from scratch again for what seems like the upteenth time. It's hard not to get discouraged by constantly feeling like I'm digging out from under a mountain of things left undone for far too long.

I have to remember to just tackle what's right in front of me now. I don't have to do everything, only the next thing. Tonight that's bills and cleaning the sink. Onward!

Hi all! I'm loving the fall weather! emoticon

Sorry I've been MIA - I had NO idea how busy we'd be once the shop opened. I assumed all the really busy days were leading up to the opening. Boy was I wrong!

I actually splurged a little the other day. I took the dog to get groomed, and had some time to kill so I shopped a little. I really only intended to browse, but then decided to try on some new jeans - the ones I was wearing were just about to fall off! Anyway, after I tried on a pair of jeans that actually fit (I had to go out twice for a smaller size!) I just couldn't leave them there!! LOL! And of course I couldn't leave the top and sweater that just completed the outfit, right? emoticon

I'm back at work today, and DH is on his own at the shop. I will be heading over there to help out this evening when I get off. I hope the day goes well for both of us! I much prefer hanging out in the shop than processing claims! But, since that's my job, I better get to it! Hope you all have a great day!

Monday is my day. I like the feeling of starting the week out with everything all spruced up. Since I live alone, it is not an especially difficult thing to do!!

I used to do all my cleaning in one day, but now I have a housekeeper who comes every other Tuesday. She does the basic cleaning, but I try to keep up with Flylady's tasks on a daily basis. emoticon

with so many things to do...it's easy to let things pile up.
I need to remember the FlyLady rules and straighten as I go...especially in the Kitchen.
I'm not that bad...but I can't see the top of the bureau dresser or the kitchen table
so I guess it's time to do some de-cluttering.

But I came across a video of FRIENDS that made me smile.

We have a resident that brings produce and bakery goods to the apartments from a local grocery each Saturday. There are a few of us who try to keep things as neat as possible as these are in boxes in the community room. I am the cleaner.
I went down tonight and went through some of the items and threw out bruised and yucky veggies and fruits. Another resident had broking down boxes that we took to the dumpster. I sprayed disinfectant on the tables and washed a few of the veggies that could be saved.
Tomorrow I will go down and clean the other table and vacuum the community room.

since we have been in the kitchen zone this week, I decided to clean some cupboards. I did two earlier in the week, and this morning did the one above the fridge, and the one I call my spice cupboard. I threw away a lot of old spices or ones I do not even remember why I bought them in the first place.

But what do I do about so many coffee mugs? I have some I like to use in one cupboard already....but ale the fridge were 8 or so that are just stored there. They have some meaning to me, but I do not use them. How many coffee mugs does one coffee drinker in the house need? emoticon

I already put some in the give away pile last week!

I hit the gym this morning and did one errand. It is beyond hot here--supposed to hit 100 today and for the next few days, so I am not pushing it much,.

This was a another busy day. I needed to pick up a prescription with the doctor. I went banking and grocery shopping and to another store to pick up some other items. I was pooped when I came home. I didn't get much done around the house today. But I did get in a walk today and also a few ab exercises before I made dinner.

Good morning! Dropping by for a quick emoticon

We were up late last night and up early today. Tomorrow is the day the store opens! It started raining really hard last night while we were there working, and we discovered a BIG leak. So, we have to call the landlord today. That should be an adventure - our landlord is 93 and VERY hard to understand due to a throat issue. He's also famous (notorious??) for not maintaining his buildings - something that we've found out after moving in and talking to neighbors.

We just have to keep reminding ourselves that our rent is good!

Hope you all have a great day!

My bag of shredding has been there for two years. I am glad to finally be getting it done.
I have no problem with the clothes and only have the things that I need well except for one Christmas dress I have be wanting to wear.

I know that feeling. I went to stay at my mom's house while my bro was on his honeymoon. There were bags of paper that needed to be shredded and tons of garbage that was just left around on unpacked boxes that had been there for about 10 years. I filled up the driveway to the curb with stuff. But I can't seem to get the bag of clothes I grew out of from my spare room to the goodwill box and it's been there about 6 months now.

I keep telling myself...less is more....it even makes you feel lighter, somehow. I just have to bite the bullet and start donating all these extras that I don't need. I'm the type that thought tote bins to store too much stuff was a better alternative. What alternative? I don't even remember what I put in those boxes.

and BARBARASDIET...I know exactly what you mean. I'm facing that too. Identity theft scares me from just reading my mail and tossing it. If it has my name and address, I feel obligated to shred....but it always gets stored in a clutter corner until later. And later usually means when I can't stand the size of the pile. So I put it in a shopping bag...and then 2 shopping bags. Let's not even go there. emoticon

Every few years, I get up the energy to try to weed out old paper and shred. I am terrible about saving paper!

The washer and dryer on our floor of the apartments are broken. I guess it will be a while before I do laundry. I have been doing a little cleaning but things are in good shape. My monthly special is to shred and file papers. I have a good start and if I continue daily I should have it completed soon. emoticon

I'm so sorry about your cat. Mine is 14 now and takes 3 meds, but I hope to have him for a few more years.

I'm glad you enjoy Skype too! emoticon

I do the same thing, Leslie--my daughter lives in VA and I am in CA, so skype has been a godssend for me to see them and especially my about to turn 2 grandson!!

Did my usual MOnday cleaning today. Since my poor Shadow passed away a couple of weeks ago, I foresee that it will be a little easier on me, since she had a lot of "accidents". Even so, I do miss her, she was a great cat.

Good for you! It sounds as if your son isn't very far away if you could take the stuff to him...

My son and his family are in France for the year, so I won't be seeing them until next August or September. emoticon I'm glad he posts on Facebook often, and we talk on Skype, which is great.
