I'm still working on my kitchen, but I am almost done. I just have to finish cleaning the broiler, 2 burners, the burner racks & the oven racks. Oh, wait, I still have to go through my fridge. I'm so excited to finally have available counter space & to know I will soon be able to use my oven & stove.

The bedroom assignment is perfect, as it was my planned main project. I don't know that I will finish everything this weekend, but I will definitely get through my clothes today. Twice a year, someone in my group of friends hosts a "Trash to Treasure" party (one woman's trash is another woman's treasure); tomorrow is the first one for the year. It's super fun and a great way to shop (green & free). Anything leftover is donated.

Oh, wow, my kitchen is scary; this will be a toughie, but good. All my cabinet doors are off, and the bases are in various stages of priming. Thus, nothing is put away, and most of my dishes are still in boxes. This seriously bothers my mom, and I promised her I would have it cleaned and organized by the end of the month (not the painting part). She will be excited when I tell her I did it this weekend.

A good gentle, non-chemical cleaner is The Laundress All-purpose Cleaning Concentrate. It is about $15 for the bottle, but it lasts a LONG time. It also smells amazing.

I recently purchased my first house, so I have a very long list of projects to do. For my cure project, I am going to tackle the disaster in my bedroom. I need to find homes for the piles of clothes and shoes hanging around my house, donate the clothes I no longer wear, hang artwork, and paint a wall.
