This is NOT my linen closet, for heaven's sake!
It's different when you are cleaning just for you, rather than when you are cleaning because someone else is coming to your home. At least, it's that way for me. I like to keep a tidy little ship, but with having five sons and homeschooling, things tend to get askew.
However, we now have a real estate agent coming to check out our home, and list it on the market, and we want it to "shine". We want it so when perfect strangers enter our abode that they say, "Ewwwwwwww", "Ahhhhhh", or even better, "Honey, I HAVE to HAVE it!" So that means the hall closet with all the linens needs to be organized, and the blankets and sheets folded like Martha Stewart lives here. I don't think that's too much to ask from the six men living in this house, do you? lol
One of the small tricks of the trade, supposedly, is to put something on your stove while they are showing the house. Like a pot of water simmering with cinnamon sticks in it. It makes the house smell homey, and I guess people lose all common sense when they smell something YUMMY! Again, that is what I'm hoping...hehehe
So we are doing our overhaul. Actually, I haven't gotten extremely motivated yet, but when I do, watch out, it may get ugly, before it gets pretty around here....lol
