Before Spring Cleaning, There’s Decluttering!

March 08, 2012

Spring is almost here and what a perfect time it is to start green spring cleaning!  But before cleaning comes decluttering! 

Maintaining an organized, clutter-free environment is an essential part of creating a peaceful home.  After all, our surroundings have a strong influence on our ability to function every day.  For most of us, living in a disorganized space can lead to more clutter and chaos.

Learn how to make a successful decluttering plan by decluttering one room at a time.  Ask yourself the right questions on what to keep and what to toss.  Create a plan that will keep you from feeling overwhelmed:

~ Pick the room you want to focus on and make that room a priority.

~ Make a commitment to allow yourself only one hour per room, focusing on one room at a time.  

~ Make a general checklist for each room.  Try not to get caught up going through anything in detail, just get a basic idea of what is there and what needs to be done, and move to the next space.  Use the list as an overview to help stay focused and organized. 

~ Start decluttering!
