The holidays are around the corner. That means you’ll be moving things around. Why not take advantage of this time by doing a little cleaning, clearing and organizing! We all dread it but it can be so cleansing to purge all of the things that you no longer need, sanitize and clean your house from top to bottom, and air your house out to create an environment of order and purity. Sometimes taking that first step is the hardest part of the process.
Don’t worry! There are ways to organize the way that you tackle your cleaning which makes the task much more manageable. It starts with creating a plan of action. Having a plan is the key to success. Make a list of everything you need to accomplish. Once you have the list, prioritize tasks thinking top down.
First, you will want to remove clutter and unwanted items. Ask yourself how much you would like to remove. Depending on the size of your task you may find that you need to get a dumpster. Or you may find if your clutter is minimal and that a few large trash bags will work. Don’t forget to think about things like old purses, clothes and shoes.
Next, you will want to thoroughly clean all surfaces. First, we recommend opening some windows to let your house air out while you work. Then you will want to make sure you dust, mop and vacuum, making sure that by the time you are done, every single surface in your home has been cleaned and shined.
Finally comes organizing what is left over. At this point you can go through everything you have left in your home and organize. Start small with a task such as your silverware drawer before moving to larger areas like kitchen or bathroom cabinets. Even your dresser drawers might need a little organization.
