I get so annoyed lately with a lack of photo credits on Apartment Therapy. In my opinion good etiquette for an image credit would involve a link to the actual article or blog post the image originated from.

And agreed about the $300 - even in Australia where we don't have $12.99 Ikea or $30 Home Depot fiddle leaf figs they aren't that expensive!

I agree with everyone, glad it wasn't a real meth house, and would love to see the rest of the home - I just love before and afters like this where the before is really really bad!

Hooray! My living room was pretty much done already, what with a combo of outbox + the initial floor clean - I have just donated to the op shop and sold a BUNCH of stuff on Ebay which is awesome.

I haven't really been following the daily tasks, more using it as inspiration for what needs to be done around the house, but I feel like at the end of the month the total result will be the same. My house feels lighter!

I do love the outbox though, I have a bunch of craft supplies etc that I know I will never use that I need to sell somewhere, and this is inspiring me to do it!

Weekend Chores: Flowers, Outbox, Living Room & Lighting January Cure Assignment #17

I do this too sometimes at home but a little different. If I'm not really in the mood it's just 5 things. If I am in the mood it's 5 things in every room I go into, so for example if I'm in the lounge maybe I have to put away some books in the bookshelf, but there's also a mug I need to take into the kitchen. Boom, 5 things in the kitchen. It's amazing how many things you can clean away if you do 5 things in each room. I wish I was tidier.


The \"3 Things\" Rule: Inching Toward Cleanliness

Thankfully, since we just moved into our current home 6 months ago, our kitchen is already quite streamlined. Plus I've been keeping it really clean lately so I'm pretty sorted on this task, just need to do some pantry organisation and some decluttering. Which is great as I did a big rush-job on the crossing a project off the list task... oops!

And I'm skipping flowers this week as it's going to be veeeery hot in Melbourne (and right through Australia!) and I know they'll wilt, but I am giving my indoor plants some special love & care instead. I finally purchased a great cane basket from the op shop for my big Happy Plant, and I am enjoying it more than I would cut flowers to be honest!
