4 Weeks to a More Organized Home: Day 14

Today's challenge involved cleaning the mirrors in the house (and glass doors, which we don't have any of), and organizing the utensil drawers.  Both easy enough and quick. Since clean mirrors are a little boring to photograph, I just took pictures of the afters of my utensil drawers, one for baking items

and one for cooking/prep items.

I also managed to get rid of 7 misc. junk items from around the house.

CVS Trip #2

It's rare for me to make two trips out in a week, but I have some serious late-pregnancy energy going on, so I decided to stop out to CVS and visit my favorite CVS ladies, and get some good deals while I was there.  Here's what I picked up...

4 boxes Kleenex Tissues $1.77 ea - $0.78 ea Sale - $1/2 CVS Coupon x 2 - $1/4 MC = 4/$0.96!
2 pkgs Stride Gum $1.57 ea - $0.57 ea Sale - $1 ECB wyb 2 = 2/$1
2 Travel Sized Eucerin Lotions $1.27 ea - $5 ECB wyb 2 (does not exclude travel sized) = 2 FREE + $2.46 Money-maker!
+ $0.45 Tax
- $4 ECB used to Pay
Total OOP: $1.95, Earned $6 ECB's!

4 Weeks to a More Organized Home: Day 13

Today's challenge was a quick clean of the bathroom, and cleaning off the tops of the kitchen cupboards and fridge.  The bathroom was easy, so I got that out of the way first, then it was onto the top of the fridge.  I skipped the cupboards since ours go all the way to the ceiling.

I also managed to get rid of quite a few things from our office desk, like 23 pieces of misc paper clutter - wahoo!
