I know a lot of people do this with potential yard sale items. I almost never sell things anymore unless I could get more than $20 net for it. Unless a potential recipient springs to mind immediately, it goes to the thrift store. If it's beyond the expectation of future use, trash or recycling to the extent that is possible.

I'm not completely done with my floors, either. I still have the bedrooms to vac. I tend to meditate on the state of my rooms almost constantly, it feels like. I'll spend some time drifting around today to see if anything jumps out at me. I tackled a lot of small flow/clutter areas while I was working on the floors.

I got pulled into a lot of side projects with this one, too. I still have some vacuuming to do, but I moved furniture and rolled back rugs to clean and mop all my hardwood floors, then vacuumed the area rugs until my vacuum cleaner cried uncle. Along the way I also acquired a new mop, cleaned and organized the hall closet, cleaned out under the kitchen sink (ACK! that was scary), dusted all the furniture, and cleaned and cleared some windowsills. I'm off to buy a houseplant today.

I don't think my floors have been this clean since we moved in 9 years ago. I wanted to sleep on the living room rug last night, it's so clean.

What is your favorite mop, AT peeps? I have a lot of hardwood floors, and no mop. I usually clean the kitchen floor by scooching around on two cleaning rags, like a demented ice skater. That works for the kitchen, but I don't know if I can do the whole house like that. I need a decent mop.
