July's Homekeeping Tasks

We continue our monthly series on caring for your home!

- JULY -


Old newspapers & magazines

Unloved & unappreciated dust collectors

Faded, torn, overused accessories






Click here to read a helpful guide on cleaning your living room. Do check out the 2nd page to see how you can break down your homekeeping into simple, quick daily and weekly tasks.

And if you seldom use your living room, consider reconfiguring it. I no longer have a living room! It was an unused room in our home, so we turned it into a dining room where a 7 ' table that my husband crafted out of old roofing boards from a Canadian barn comfortably resides.

I love the room because we can finally seat a good number of people comfortably and it makes good use of the space that we have. And our former dining room now serves as my study.

Let's care for what God has blessed us with, be it simple or grand ~ Linda


  1. my dust rag is still stuffed in the basket of magazines where I left it at 10 this morning!!!! probably will still be there by the week-end!

  2. At least you know where it is!!

    Writing the post encouraged me to do a bit of much-needed dusting myself - and that's what I did this morning while talking on the phone to my son-in-law!


  3. I enjoy this post. I continually purge magazines and newspapers or it will be overtaken. Then it's back to square one! Usually a few days papers then out it goes to recycle back that once is filled goes to blue bin outdoors! Have a good week!

  4. About a year ago, I let all the magazine subscriptions run out except for the ones I really love reading. It was too overwhelming to see them piling up unread and unappreciated.

    I also cancelled the daily newspaper, and now just receive it on the weekends when I have time to read it.

    If I don't love it or use it, it's heading out the door around here!

    Thanks, Becky, for your observations!


Welcome to the table, friend!
