I cleaned the bedroom my 5yo and 2yo share. And I took pics!

Before:

After:

I also vacuumed my bedroom and the hallway after vacuuming the kids' room.

Not bad for 15 minutes!

Cleared out expired junk in the fridge, discovered the source of the mystery odor (molded over watermelon shoved way in the back - yuck!)
Took out the garbage
Cleaned out the sink
