I can not belive that 3 months has been already passed… We are in the middle of a lock down like last year, but I am hoping the best for all of us and courage you to be positive (not your PCR) and look ahead, try to appriciate small things, for example I am sitting at our balcony, sun is shinning.
So tomorrow is April, officialy spring so it calls for a home cleaning and organizing challenge! If you work like me, you might not have a whole day for deep cleaning or just it is too much or just you are not in a mood of… this challenge going to work for you. We are going to do by-by day activities, so download it to your mobile and have a look everyday.
Start with your “frames”: windows, doors and do it like a pro from the ceiling to down, then clean your bedrooms and personal area, bathroom, kitchen, living room etc. Take care of your plants and have fun.
Yeah I know it should be bedroom tideuptime, but I had to change it due to the weather, so I was continue my serie with our teeny-tiny living room, which is not an actual serate room- it liks to our kitchen. If there is a more bigger event – which will not be soon– we do take our dinning table here to have some space.

Here, nearly everthing is temporary we tend to buy a new tv sideboard, now the one is an IKEA Billy underneath is a way to short. Our sofa will stay as the last to change, but I really want to find a nice velvet blue or green one, which can be opened as a bed too. We would definetely need a rug, preferebly a Beni Ourain and a coffee table, maybe a small working desk too. Of course, we would have some book shelves above the sofa and a mini gallery wall behind the TV.
We are both plant addicts, so we would have more plants arround us, that is why I have already started to make macrame holder for them and we also purchased a Humidfication as our air is so-so dry here.
I did not had a full day next to work to do it so I had to do day-by-day:
1: Cleaning the furnitures, organizing and decluttering:
This is our wall cabinet (hack IKEA Silveran) so left side: top shelf is for travel minis and vanity cases, middle some back-ups, down our electronic stuffs; on the right side: top shelf just some rarely used items, middle are some extra toilet papers, which I am going to put into a wire basket on the top of that cabinet soon, down is some purities in the jute box, which will be on the small shelf above the toilet soon and some shoe care in the case. I am just thinking to take the tissue papers and the extra mats in here…
Under the sink we do store all the bathroom cleaners and detergent- might be one or two boxes would be ideal for the storage. While in the upper cabinet is a small, behind a mirror are everything which the use on a daily basis.
Yeah, there were littelly nothing to declutter, only empties:
2: It was not a subject to take photos of: washing the tiles, sink, toilet and the window.
3: Washed the shower curtain, mats and the washing machine itself – inside and outside.
Finally some wishlist:
IKEA Svartsjön rack over the washing machine
H&M Wire basket (2)for the toilet paper storage (with some hack )
White shelf with black wire holder above the toilet and a decoration poster, maybe a plant.
