Stress free spring cleaning

Make it easy and make it fun.
Would you like to know how to spring clean with no stress?  Take a slow walk through your home.  Look for those spots that you would like to see junk disappear.  A catch all bowl by the door? A junk drawer?  Side table in front of the TV? Closet shelf?  Top of the fridge?  Inside your purse?  The medicine cabinet? 
 
Here's how I am getting rid of my junk one tiny step at a time:

  • I dedicated myself to spend 15-30 minutes each day for 10 days to purge and reduce the junk.  If you choose a big area, break it into small sections you can tackle in under 30 minutes over several days.  That's how I handled my closet which I worked on first because it was the area that had really gotten out of control!
  • I put a donation box in an out of the way spot.
  • I knew I wanted to add some storage containers to my closet, so I picked them up at Target the end of the first challenge day.
  • I purged the un-needed items to the donation box, tossed the trash,  put the keeper things where they belonged and finished off with a nice dusting.

  1. I love it when I clean out a spot. I did underneath my kitchen sink. I wanted to just leave the cupboard doors open, it was so pretty. :) Linda
