A Clean House Is A Happy House

Is clutter invading your home and making you feel overwhelmed?  Does clutter somehow get into your home before you even realize it?  If your answer is yes, then follow some of these ideas to get a hold of clutter before it takes over:

Find a system that works and stick with it:  I know it is not easy at times, but it helps.  Having a specific spot for everything helps avoid potential messes.  Organize paperwork in filing boxes, put toys in bins, keep magazines in baskets…whatever works to minimize clutter is what you should stick with.

Spot clean everyday for about fifteen minutes.  Return items to their proper places.  Try and go room to room and spot clean each day to help keep your home in order and your stress level low.

Learn to purge seasonally.  Get into the habit of purging at the end of each season.  Go through clothing and household items and see what you can get rid of.  Donate your goods to your local charities.

Get the family involved.  Have your family pitch in around the house.  Folding the laundry, sweeping the floor, or washing the dishes are all easy jobs that children can do to help keep the home mess free. 

 Got space?  Avoid taking up precious space in your home with things that you never use.  Save your valuable space for those things that have lots of meaning, or that serve a great purpose.
