A few tips to help you banish left over Winter clutter:
Like every task, focusing your time on one specific job instead of multitasking will give you a sense of accomplishment when getting each room just right. Devote one room or task to a particular day of the week or period of the day and make sure to stick to it
until it’s complete. Working on more than one space at a time may discourage you from your de-cluttering mission because it takes longer to see apparent results with 2 tasks on the go, that require your time and attention. Be fair to yourself!
Always start with small tasks or with messes that irritate you the most. It could be the overstuffed bedroom closet, the stack of paper on your kitchen counter or the box of tangled computer cords.
Making each room perfect will take a few weeks but in the meantime you’ll be forming the habit of keeping your home well organized without even knowing it! By next month you’ll be searching for areas outside of your home to conquer on your de-cluttering mission because your home will look fantastic inside!
But don’t be discouraged if it takes a few tries before you really get into the de-cluttering frenzy. When you see the newly organized spaces within your home you’ll be glad you didn’t quit!
