I just googled “Cleaning blogs”. And yours is still # 2! as of 1 am Sunday, July 13, 2014.
Just discovered your blog recently. Where have you been all my life? Either we r soul mates, or identical twin sisters, separated at birth! I love reading your thoughts. |They echo mine! And like you, I thought I (and my sister) were the only ones!! I truly thank God for you. What a huge blessing you are to me, and so many others. Please, keep it up!

  • Nony, Dana White in real life, answered my comment!
  • I was sooooo stoked when I read her answer!  This was about a month before I started PurpleSlob.
  • I was binge reading ASlobComesClean, for inspiration.
  • And boy, did I ever find it!  She knew me!  She “got” me!  She was just like me!
  • I had found my tribe!  Everyone on that site was so supportive, because they were in the throes of their own mess.
  • slob, humor, mess

    My personal mess, well, one of them! And not just my mess, to be fair (to me!!) it’s PP’s mess!

kitchen clutter

Here are befores of the kitchen counters. All except the one where dirty dishes go to die.

Ain’t going there today.

Anyhoo..

20150331_12552220150414_221823Yeah!  I got a real before!  Give that girl a gluten free sugar free dairy free brownie!  Will wonders never cease, I even wiped the top, after I decluttered it!  Woot, woot!  I’m on a roll!

The stove before:

See, that wasn’t so hard now, was it?  Well, I did have to bend over, to put the pots in the lower cabinet.  That right there, took my breath away, and I had to sit down and recouperate!

The right side of the stove before:

The right side of the sink:

I even wiped it with a damp paper towel. All that did was remove the dust and a few dead bugs. So I went the extra mile, and broke out the Dawn. Really!  Still didn’t look clean. So,

hang onto your hats; I scrubbed it with a scrubbie sponge! Yes, the green scrubbie side.  I know!  I can’t believe it either!

It still didn’t look clean, but trust me, it is.

(When we moved in, they painted our counter tops.  Now they absorb stains and colors like Silly Putty copies comics.)

BAM!!  No more Kitchen Clutter!  

(Nooooooo, you can’t look to the left of the sink!! Those are dead dishes over there.  Let them RIP.)
