Decluttering and hanging shelves and shopping

September 13th, 2015 at 01:09 pm

So far today I:

*cleaned out litter boxes and refilled

*took out trash

*decluttered my kitchen drawers

*put together a box of books and other things that I had been planning on selling on eBay, but have just been sitting there for a year on a shelf ... and took that box plus stuff from the kitchen drawers to Goodwill

*cleaned out my car - found $1

*figured out how to hang the shelves I got a few weeks ago without buying a drill bit (like NE said I'd have to do) Hmph! Girl power!

*moved boxes from beside the back door to behind my bed

*moved suitcases from beside back door and put into my closet (this only made possible because of KonMari'ing my clothes a few weeks or so ago - otherwise would not have had the space in the closet!)

*attempted to put plate hangers on my two deco plates, but found out the hangers were TOO big! (plates I think are 8" and the hangers are for 10-14")

*Went to Walmart and spent way, way too much ...

but ... got two bathroom rugs to go under litter boxes
.... got a new shower curtain w/hooks that *I* like (not the drab brown the guy who lived here before had left)
... got a new hand towel and washcloth to spiffy the bathroom up
... a lot of other stuff (mostly groceries)

*got home and got everything scanned to my various apps ($3.70 Ibotta, $2.75 SavingStar, $.25 Shrink, $.25 Snap)

*got everything put away, and just finished a late lunch. Now am going to relax a bit until it's time for NE to come over (we're going out to a place called Pizza Ranch tonight - his treat!)


Yesterday I went for a 4.5 mile walk with some people from church. Overall, I got in over 14k steps!

I used the Charity Miles apps and earned $1.06 for a charity, and I also earned 40 bounts points - 20 for fitbit (14k steps) 10 for RunKeeper, and 10 for a weekend activity. I'm up to 590 bounts already. Sweet!

Now I just need to get my extra key to the cleaning lady so she can clean my place tomorrow.

    I bet it feels good to have accomplished so much. You deserve the break and date night out!

    Thanks Smile It does feel good to have actually gotten something done today.

    My cat seems to approve of the new bathmat under her litterbox in the living room. She's currently curled up on it snoozing. Smile
    I just finished putting up my new shower curtain/liner. Looks so much better than the horrible brown thing that was in there before. (all the curtains in the place are also these drab colors - but I'm leaving those alone - would be way too expensive to change those for a place I'm renting.)

    Good choice to spiffy up the place a bit. Decluttering and just moving things around can make a big difference how you feel about it all. I'm sure with the cleaning, it will look great when your landlord walks through. Will you be there for the walk through?

    CCF - Thanks

    No, probably not. It'll probably happen while I'm at work, and then I'll be heading to O city to pick up my mom. I am thinking about leaving a very pointed letter stating my displeasure with all of this and copies of the email exchange between his wife and I (in case he isn't in the loop.)

    You took a negative situation and turned it into a positive step forward for yourself. Good for you!
