In this hybrid cure, none of us are holding a party. But the idea of a party is still useful--that is, you want to finish off any projects you have started and tidy and clean the place as if you are expecting guests. In fact, it would be fun to do a "before and after" post at the end of the week showing off what we've done.
So, what follows is a selective list of things to do this week from Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan's much larger list for Week 8 on p. 224 of Apartment Therapy, the Eight Step Home Cure.
Vacuum the entire apartment and clean all the windows
Do a final purge for clutter and empty the outbox
Buy fresh flowers
Cook and eat at home
Plan the week at home.
For me the focus this week will be on my Basement.
To put it mildly, it is an absolute disaster.
So, in addition to working on my project list, I will be working in the basement (and the garden) this coming week. So, without further ado:
Spring Cleaning List:
Attach loose rubber matting
Discard old furniture
Set up Zones
Clean out dressers
Set up curtains for storage wall
Clean dryer vent hose
Scrub out lint trap
Set up something to organize bedding
Baskets with sports equipment
Under the stairs
Tables by washer and dryer
PS: I would include pictures with this post but I cannot open my usual photo editing software. I'm have been trying to "fix" the problem, now, for several hours. I give up (for now).
