Cleaning Your House: Tips for Organization, Tidiness and More

Step 1: Organize, organize, organize! Get three large boxes. Label them, “Stay,” “Go,” and “Don’t Know.” As you clean, you should begin adding to these boxes accordingly. DO NOT be afraid of the Go box, its there for your benefit. If you touch something and you automatically think Go, let it Go.

Step 2: Start high. Begin at the tippity top of your house. Let whatever is going to fall, fall. Dust, dirt, debris, and all. You’ll get back to it.

Step 3: Go one room at a time. Pick a room, any room. Just complete the task at hand. Don’t forget to use your boxes. Have lots of junk mail? Throw it all into plastic shopping bags, you can sort through this later.

Step 4: Leave no stone unturned. Move everything. I know it sounds difficult, but in the end you will feel a alot better about yourself. Gather your strength and move that sofa.

Step 5: Don’t forget to dust. Dusting is vital. make sure your armed with a duster at all time. Dust accumulates and spreads so as a precaution dust it all.

Step 6: Sweep it all away. Make sure you get every nook and cranny. Under the bed, behind the trash can. Get it all, the bigger the pile, the more you see how often you should really clean your house.
