At our house we are beginning to do a major cleanup over the next seven weeks. If you’re like me and don’t like to clean house (sorry, Mom!) it helps to have a deadline or an event coming up to get you all motivated. In our case the “2011 Sherman Hill Doors To The Past” tour of historic homes is coming up the last two weekends in September. Our house is one of about ten on this year’s tour. Actually we live in a section of the building shown above called Alchemilla. It is six townhomes made to look like one enormous Victorian mansion. Alchemilla was built in 2007 on a weedy vacant city lot and designed by architect Jefferey Morgan. If you want to drive by, its located at 16th Street and Pleasant Street in Des Moines, one block north of Hoyt Sherman Place and one block west of Methodist and Blank Childrens Hospitals. Better yet, come pay us a visit on the upcoming home tour.
For more inspiration on getting organized at home I want to share an article I found on the top 5 no-cost tips to get your clothes closets organized, uncluttered, and making it easier to find all your stuff. I’ll be using all these tips in getting ready for the tour. See you then!
