Top 2 Tuesday

Now that I'm back into the swing of things, it's time to participate in Top 2 Tuesday once again.

PS Our house in TN closed today. We are done with selling! Now onto buying!

Top 2 Cleaning and Organization tips or tricks!

1. Baskets. Instead of having anything loose in a drawer or cabinet, put it in a basket. Even if you are totally not organized, at least your place won't be a mess.

2. Clean up right after you make the mess. I know it's easier said than done. But, if you clean up right after you've made dinner, then you don't have to worry about waking up to a messy kitchen.

2 1/2. Clean your house before you go on a trip. I think it's very stressful to come home to a messy or dirty house. It is a pain to make sure it's all picked up and cleaned before you leave on a big trip, but it's so worth it when you get home. 

Head over to Taylor's blog and link up! You can get some great tips.

I clean the house BIG time before we go on a trip too! I love coming home to a relax free zone. You know, because sometimes you need a vacation from your vacation!
