20 days to organise & clean your home challenge Pre Challenge Task 5

Last night I finally filled up my container with vegetable peelings (go here to see) so I put them in my slow cooker and filled it with water to nearly cover all the peel and then put some salt in and gave it a stir. I then put it on low and left it to cook overnight and in the morning I got up to the smell of vegetable stock. I then bagged them up and put them in the freezer. It made 5 cups of stock.

Beef stock bagged up and ready to go in the freezer

Filling up that container was the perfect amount for vegetable stock, but if I was to do beef or chicken stock I would need half or less vegetable peelings. Next time I fill up the container I will make sure I have a chicken and beef bones available for the stock.

Todays Pre Challenge is to set goals and to get sorting containers for when I go through each room. I need one for the items I want to keep, donate, sell and for the rubbish.

Really, when I clean I use shopping bags for items I want to donate and large garbage bags for the rubbish, so that leaves sorting containers for the items that I want to keep that are in the wrong area and items I want to sell. Not sure about the selling items as most things I just donate to charity. May give that one a miss at the moment.

I ended up picking up this from Bargain Basement.

I want to feel content when I am at home.
I want to spend more time with my kids, in the garden and doing craft.
I want an area in the home where I can sew and do craft without distraction
I want to organise my whole house
I always lose my keys
Something that I don't need anymore, but am having trouble parting with is my makeup and other facial cleansing items (I can easily make do with half of what I have and I don't wear makeup) and some of my clothing (have way more then I can wear in a year.

Stay tuned Monday for Day 1 of 20 days to organise & clean your home challenge.
