Spring Cleaning Party - Day 1 The Entry


Today is Day 1 of Simple Mom's Spring Cleaning Party. I have to say that I'm excited to finally be bringing order to my house. It won't be easy because our schedules are very full this week, but I have done some things ahead of time and will definitely be taking more time this week to get more done. I really NEED to get my house cleaned up.

For the first day I decided to clean up my entry way. It's a small space that tends to collect lots of stuff. As you can see in my before picture (below) the bench and table tend to get piled up.

Here is my after picture:

The bench and table have been completed cleaned off. I even cleaned out the bins under the bench and the bins in the coat closet. And yes, we even vacuumed up the dog hair. The only think sitting on the bench is a bag that I took out to my car on my next trip out.

I am so happy that I was able to get this area cleaned up. Since it's the first thing you see when you walk in the house I feel its important to keep it cleaned (even if I don't always manage to do that).

To see what everyone else is cleaning today, head over to Simple Mom and check out the links.

Looks great! I cleaned out our coat closet too while I was decluttering. It is nice to open that door and it's all clean. And I went ahead and added the out-grown coats to the "give" pile while I was at it!!

Hey, thanks for the Spring Cleaning Party recommendation. I've not heard of this yet but am going to go check it out right now. I was planning on starting my spring cleaning today, anyway. :-)

It looks great, and isn't it nice to know that now, the first impression of your house is clean and calm? I love the blue color too!

Great job! Just getting one small space cleared out is great encouragement, huh. I love that blue and your floors!
