So zone cleaning in the master bedroom is increasingly difficult but I don’t mind so much. My husband definitely needs his sleep too. I did do some work in it today. I finally bought a lovely comforter for this room. When husband and I got our first place together we bought a lovely blue comforter that both of us enjoyed. Through the years it became worn and tattered and we needed to let it go. It felt so hard to buy a new one because we are often the
fortunate recipient of other people’s unwanted clutter. They mean well but we often cannot say no but most times the items are not our style.
Give you an example – we were using a brightly colored quilt covered in Macaws! YUCK! It would annoy me so our other options were a bright pink down comforter (also a gift) that crinkles when we move or our patriotic quilt (a purchased item I love but not for our bedroom. It’s our picnic blanket and living room blanket.)
I was shopping at Aldi and found the quilt set below.
I have to say even though I’m not drawn to floral patterns I fell in love with this one right away. I bought it and it looks lovely on my bed. I decided that the comforter in my daughter’s room needed to go as well so we went shopping for her. The current one was given to us and was closer to her style when she received it (pink with princess design) but over the years has become stained from us allowing her to have crystal light at bedtime. After several stores she decided that she wanted the same quilt that we purchased so I went back to Aldi to pick her up the same.
So today I made our bed and put freshly laundered sheets on. It smells lovely now and feels great. I pulled the two totes out from under the bed and took inventory. We’ve purged down to two sets of sheets for our bed with the matching pillow cases. Our daughter has three complete sets of sheets and mismatched pillow cases. We’ve kept two flat sheets that don’t go to either bed but I love them. One is a lovely pink and white checkered sheet that i have used for a picnic blanket, a table cloth, a make shift play tent and more. The other is a lovely blue and green floral sheet that is a perfect summer coverup when a blanket is too much.
besides the bed we each have our own dresser and husband has a side table with two drawers. I cleared husband’s dresser top off to two picture frames, a jewelry box, a vase, his tv and dvd player. My dresser top still needs a little work and I need to purge through my drawers. Closet needs a little work as I need to go through my clothes still. Fortunately it’s a small closet – about 6 feet wide and only slightly deeper than our hangers and we share so I only have about 3 feet of space plus the shelf. There are two small totes of seasonal clothes and husband’s dress shoes on the shelf.
on the floor some work is needed. there is a large tote full of dvds that I would love to purge by half but need husband on board with this and then there is a large basket full of blankets. There is also a GINORMOUS piece of thick glass that came with the house. It’s so heavy I can’t even move it out.
On my to-do list is to convince husband to go through his drawers, flip the mattresses to staple the lining back in place on the box springs and finish sorting my clothes. I believe it’ll take 30 minutes total to finish.
On a completely different topic –
Here is what I found at Aldi that I bought for my daughter. This ball is 4 foot 3 inches tall when inflated and is super amazing. (ad picture below). We took it up to mom’s house and I let her play with it. Super, super awesome.
