So to start my day off, I did ALL the laundry in the house. It's just my husband and I, but between work clothes and work out clothes, we end up with several loads every week.
I then decided to clean out and organize my pantry for the hundredth time. I'm pretty sure I go through this routine at least every 2-3 months. I've learned though that when our eating habits change, the pantry has to too. I was so excited to get started that I forgot to take a before picture, but here's the result of about 30 minutes of sorting, stacking and cleaning.
From there, I moved on to picture frames. I had put some up a month or so ago but it just looked too sparse, so I got some cheap black certificate frames from the dollar store to fill in the spots. I still have to get pictures printed to fill the frames, but here's the progress so far.
***Picture hanging tip: The toothpaste trick! I dabbed a bit of toothpaste on the back of the frame where the nail would go then pressed the frame on the wall where I thought would be good. When I took the frame away there was a little speck of toothpaste that told me where on the wall to hammer in a nail. It worked PERECTLY! I'm so happy with this shortcut!
I did a few other odds and ends around the house, but I still have several things left on my to-do list for the remainder of my extended weekend, so stay tuned!
