What happens when two messy and stubborn people move in together?
A pigsty, lovingly referred to as “our house”.
I’m starting to finally organize our home. This week, I’m going through all our boxes and getting rid of things we don’t need. I’ve had curtains waiting to be hung since February, so I think my husband is going to hang them this week. We have fabric for a slipcover for the couch waiting to be sewn, as well as lots of fabric for pillows, just sitting there.
My biggest concern is all the clothes I have that are just a LITTLE too small. I’m hoping I can fit into them this fall. But what to do with them now? I guess just box them up?
And then, once that is done, we are implementing a chore list. Ideally, we should have done this before we got married. But we were busy, and lazy, and didn’t feel like it.
Here’s our chore list. For the daily chores, BOLD means evening chores, non bold means morning chores
Hang Towels to Dry
Wipe Down Kitchen Counters
Take Out Trash
Saturday – Matt: Vacuum & Dust
Saturday – Steph: Clean Bathroom & Mop Kitchen
We shall see how this works. But I know we really need to discipline ourselves when it comes to cleaning. If we don’t do it now, then life will be so much harder once we have kids. (Which isn’t for awhile, but I’m thinking ahead!)
