I spent all day yesterday cleaning, loading the car, and taking out trash at our old apartment. Two flights of stairs for every trip to/from the car and dumpster (over 20) makes for a VERY sore Kasey. I can barely walk. The muscles in my legs hurt so badly! We turned in our keys and we are done with the stinky apartment…
Now on to the messy one…
It seems I can’t catch a break.
When the previous tenant moved out, he didn’t bother cleaning, at all. I called the landlord and he said he would clean prior to our move-in. I guess his definition of clean is very different from mine! I’m waiting for some acetaminophen to kick in and then I need to clean the nasty bathroom. I will post before/after pictures later. I am beginning to wonder if this non-cleaning thing upon move-out is a Norfolk/East coast thing. Considering the amount of cleaning I need to do, I’m definitely not cleaning when I move out!
I looked underneath the kitchen cabinets and in the drawers for the first time…eww! The previous tenant left a lot of stuff and there is so much moisture in there from the pipes for the washer/dryer, sink, garbage disposal and dishwasher that I do not feel comfortable putting my utensils and food in them.
The hubby and I will be taking a trip to Bed, Bath & Beyond this weekend to pick up a new shelving unit to house our kitchen supplies, bath mats, new toilet seat, something to hang our towels on, and probably a lot of other stuff.
Hubby’s underway was delayed until next week due to the insane winds we’ve been having lately. I’m so glad I don’t have to deal with this place all on my own. So many boxes. So much cleaning!
