30-Day House Cleaning Challenge: Project #3 Surface Clean the Master Bedroom

Today I tackled Surface Cleaning our Master Bedroom.  I’ve got to say, the idea of cleaning a room in only 20 minutes is hard for me.  Of course my family knows that I can make any project take longer than it should.  Today’s project took me exactly one hour.  Thankfully the kids were busy with a big box of legos on the (newly vacuumed!) living room carpet, and the baby was napping.

I made a lot of discoveries while cleaning.  I found my missing socks under the bed, and some ancient cheerios too!  I also discovered that our room is a bit damp.  There was mold on the wall behind my husband’s laundry basket and around the windows.  I’m not sure where the concept of “dust-bunnies” came from, but the dust under our bed and end tables could have clothed a small cat.  Finally, my small dust pan and brush have disappeared…probably absconded for one of the many Young Life Clubs, Committee Meetings, or Leaders Meetings that happen in our home.

Otherwise, I don’t think our room LOOKS significantly different after all that, but I did get rid of my 7 items and I folded and put away all the clothes on my husband’s side of the bed.  (And Brad, if you’re reading this, I did not get rid of any of YOUR items!)

How about you?  Which bedroom did you choose?  How did it go?

    I took a whole bunch of things to Goodwill yesterday and got a receipt to put on my tax refund. It made me happy. That is a HUGE motivation for me to get rid of more things! 🙂
