Sounds like a very busy productive day. Don't you just love them? How do you get motivated? I have been trying to declutter my house and just can't get started. sigh any tips will be appreciated.
I will rent you my version of the energizer bunny.
My 44 year old son flew down to FL from DC the day after I was released from rehab facility. Between breaking my foot in July and having major abdominal surgery to remove tumor and kidney, DH having major issues and unable to walk much, the house was a major disaster.
He cleared the mess in my walk in closet, one item at a time, asking me where it "lived". We actually got rid of a lot of stuff. He uses the triage system. Two piles. When did I use it last? Do I really really need/want it? Do I have space to put it somewhere? If yes, keep. If no, out it goes.
Then we tackled the bedroom, my armoire. Same system. When I got tired, he cleaned, straightened, shopped, cooked for the freezer, etc.
In 3 days, everything was organized, cooked, washed, put away, a cleaning lady interviewed and hired and he was gone!
While I was in hospital, then rehab, DH, with his own challenges, had been unable to find the clothing I asked for, and managed to trash the closet and my bedroom. Of course, I had already left it a mess because being non weight bearing, I was in a wheelchair unable to reach the closet and armoire so stuff was already piled up. DH was unable to sort through my T shirts for those that matched the pants he brought me. I finally told him to bring me some of his white T shirts and that's what I wore throughout my 4 week rehab stay. So what. I wasn't doing anything except sitting around and going to PT and OT. Because I couldn't walk, after major abdominal surgery, I needed major help to even get in and out of bed!
