You may remember reading earlier this month, I’ve been embracing the less mentality! The less I have= the less I have to clean= the less I have to do= the less tired I am. I LOVE THIS IDEA. Since my original post on the topic, I’ve cleaned through our upstairs bathroom (remember the ten bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and shampoo?) and Jameson ‘s room. Step #1 is cleaning through the existing stuff. Step #2 will be purchasing less. So, instead of throwing out the ten bottles in our shower we’ll use up what we have and find a way to buy less going forward.
The bathroom was an easy project and I found a new trick online for cleaning the shower. Vinegar. I sprayed down our tile, let the vinegar do its magic for 10 minutes, and “hello, bright white shower”. I like the cost savings and idea of a less toxic cleaning option… especially with having kids.
Jameson’s room was a bit different. I went through his clothes and toys packing away things he has outgrown and getting rid of a few that were hanging onto dear life after living a very eventful life in our home. Jameson even helped me with the project by singing the pick up song and aggressively brushing the broom across his floor. <grin>
So, two rooms down and quite a few more to go. Do any of you have cleaning methods to share? I’m finding as I go through things I’m taking on a “greener” mentality as I fight against the consumerism mentality. More to come on that.
