30 Day House Cleaning Challenge- Day 10

Today's challenge is to deep clean your living room.

I have to admit that I do not deep clean very often. With four kids and a busy life, I am lucky to get the house surface cleaned!

I moved my couch and was shocked at what I found!

 This is a boring picture! This is after I vacuumed.

After I moved the couch, I noticed these two problem areas. It is amazing how when I started to deep clean, I kept finding more areas to clean!

Our entryway-

What do you do with your family's shoes? We just throw them by the door but this is pretty much in our living room. I would love some ideas on how to improve this area.

Clean for a moment!

This is the mess I was appalled at-


With the couch there, you don't really see it. It is tucked in the corner. When I moved the couch, it seemed so awful!


I added a bin to organize the books. I think it will help.


How often do you deep clean? I have decided I may need to do so more often!

I will admit that I don't deep clean very often, but I feel OK with that too. A few times a year seems to be quite sufficient for our home...or maybe that's just what I tell myself so I don't have to do it!

Your windows look beautiful, btw :)

We had the same problem with shoes, the kids would line them up by the door. I recently bought a bench with cloth buckets under it and each child got their own buckets for shoes.It made my entry look so much cleaner.

I stole this idea from a friend but changed it a little to fit our home. She had a bucket for each person in the family. I had enough room for one basket. I will be moving a few things around so I can get another one for my daughters' shoes.

I had a basket that I wasn't using so this cost nothing for me.

hope this helps.
