Making Your House a Haven

My friend Crystal ( has encouraged me through her blog to do some things around my house to make it a haven.

This summer we have replaced flooring in two rooms. It looks so nice and fresh, and in the process, I cleaned out two rooms and purged them of some clutter. I am so happy when I walk into these roooms now. And I know that my husband likes it, too.

Last night, I purged things from my bathroom cabinet and my DH’s cabinet. It has been a long time since I did that, and with my recent stock-piling of sale items at CVS, I had a bit of an organizational problem. What good is it to score a good deal when you can find it when you need it, or you forgot you had it!!!! Now, I know how many bottles of shampoo and conditioner we have on hand, and I know how many tubes of toothpaste are in the cabinet. And the toothpaste is organized from what expires soonest to lastest. (Did you know toothpaste has expiration dates?)

What are you doing to make your house a haven?

  1. It’s funny that you posted this. It must be the time of year or something because I just cleaned out my CVS closet as well.

    Thanks for the tip about the toothpaste. I had no idea there was an expiration date on it.
