Lazy Guide to Cleaning

In an effort to be less of a garbage-person, I have been trying to introduce some routines into my life and today’s focus is on cleaning. I’m saving health and fitness for future Michelle, she’ll love that. While I like having a clean and organized house, I seem to have a hard time keeping it that way. A little background: I have three levels of hardwood floors and a basement that I generally avoid. I hate cleaning and would much rather be working on a project, laying down, or eating a hot fudge sundae, so those “15 Steps to a Clean House” checklists don’t really apply to me. I have all the standard cleaning things: vacuums, mops, buckets, brooms, Swiffers, etc. I just rarely use them because they are heavy or annoying. Also, I have two pets, and they leave fur everywhere. So I came up with a two-part cleaning routine that is not eco-friendly or particularly cheap, but my house can pass for clean and it helps keep the fur to a minimum.Keep Reading

This weekend I’ll be selling furniture at the Westside Flea Market! This will be my first flea market and first time trying to sell my refinished furniture outside of Craigslist and garage sales. I got a little wrapped up in trying to make this site perfect for the flea market, but I ran out of time to pull all of my content together. So stay tuned for tons more hideous, neon photos of my house and some great(or at least much improved) after photos.

For those of you in the Cleveland area, I hope to see you there on Saturday!Keep Reading
