Unless you’re a hoarder, most of us like to see our house clean and organized. But the thought of spending a whole weekend or more to clean and organize simply stresses us out. We tend to keep it off until we have to. Then more things would have piled up. If you reserve 20 minutes a day for the next ten days and make a plan to clean up room by room and closet by closet. The task will seem less stressful.
If you have guests that are coming in a month, now it’s a good time to start. We tend to get disorganized during holidays and get overwhelmed with the gifts, wrapping papers, and the shopping itself. Why not start organizing and cleaning now so you don’t have to spend the weekend right before Christmas to clean. Make a plan and stick to it. The best place to start is the kitchen. That’s where you will spend most of your time. Clean out the outdated cans and jars. And get a shelf organizer if you don’t already have one. Organize your spices and oils.
