so fresh and so clean.

Is there ANYTHING better than a clean house? I mean seriously. I spent all morning and the first part of the afternoon cleaning, throwing away, putting stuff on craigslist, organizing, etc. and I honestly feel at peace. People, I can’t stress enough how happy I am about this! I’ve been feeling a certain level of anxiety, and I’m pretty sure it was because my apartment was a disaster. It’s weird, because I don’t seem to care about my office or car being clean, but my home…YES! I’m not one of those people that like the ACT of cleaning, it’s the final product that I crave. Order. Cleanliness. Peace. Everything in its place. It’s glorious. If you need me, I’ll be at home. Enjoying my clean apartment.

**On a side note, the guy upstairs has a Golden Retriever and a Boston terrier up there right now. Claws on hardwood floors. Barking. Chaos. This could seriously put a damper on my love affair with my apartment.


Spring cleaning – in the winter.

I’m not sure if it’s our small apartment closing in on me or the start of a new year, but I’ve had a serious urge to purge, clean and de-clutter everything. Last week, we decided we would not go to the grocery store – even though we really needed to. Instead, we ate our way through the cupboards and got creative with dinners for a week. A few of the dinners were a bust, and a few were surprisingly good. While it was hard to go without milk and fresh produced for a week, it was actually really fun! I highly recommend it and plan on doing twice a year.

In the same vein, I went through my closet yesterday and found three bags of clothes for goodwill. Tomorrow, I plan to go through all the condiments in the fridge.

a blog for anyone, but mostly for me.
