Lost my Organizing MoJo

With work keeping me busy and all the end of the school year activities, I've really slacked off on my organizing. I did make some major improvements on getting my sewing corner ready in my bedroom, but the piles of crap that had built up there from shifting furniture and other items was too embarrassing to post here. Seriously, it was that bad.

So, to get myself back on track, I have picked out a project that I want to complete in the next two weeks. Why two weeks? Because that is all I have left with my kiddos at home. They are finishing school and then headed to grandma's for the summer. Yep - I know you are jealous. Do I miss them? Sure, but not enough to not enjoy the time off and the have the ability to tackle some projects around the house without them.

The first thing I want to get done is cleaning my oven. It's fairly new, but it sure has become dirty quickly. I pinned this little project to clean the glass in the door.

I also have melted aluminum foil on the bottom of the oven. I thought I was preventing a bigger mess when I was cooking something, but instead I just made a horrible mistake. So, I found this solution and pinned it to my Cleaning board on Pinterest.

Since the oven was new when this happened, I was devastated. I'm not looking forward to the smell, but if it works it will be worth it and I will never line my oven with foil again.

After I get the foil off, I'm going to try this natural method to clean the entire oven. Yes, I have a self-cleaning oven. However, it's summer and I am not so crazy that I want to intentionally heat my home. Plus, using the self-cleaning feature can break down the coils, according to the manufacturer, and should be used sparingly to increase the longevity of the oven.

Wish me luck. I think I'm going to need it with this one. If you want to follow my Pinterest boards, you can find me here.
