Basement Cleaning is Yucky

My big job for the last couple of weeks has been to get the basement clean and organized. So, today since I am home for the whole day, I am hopeful to get the majority of it done. Bethany has organized all of her part and so I am encouraged that I can do the same. However, I really HATE basements. As a general rule, when we look for a new house, which we have done countless times over the last 23 years, I don't even go into the basement. I just don't like them. I don't want to be in them and I really hate to clean them. But, we live in a pretty small house and need the space in our basement for storage, etc. So, I am off to clean some more after I feed Davin some lunch. That will be a nice break.

I try to stay out of our basement too. It is not living space, just storage and a place to have things like a furnace, oil tank, water heater and freezer (and lots of junk...). Cold, dark, musty. I prefer to be upstairs, but I thnk I may need to put some effort into cleaning mine soon too.

I gave up cleaning my basement, after trying numerous times to keep it tidy. I have a very messy hubby and no garage, so, well, you understand.

I agree with Christine! Though I love a neat and tidy house.... I don't particularly I don't particularly like to clean. hahaha!

Basements ARE yucky! I do wish I had a decent one to use as a playroom though.
