Here we are on Day Three of our New Year’s motivation series. Today, we are talking my best tips to clean/declutter/organize your home. I’ve got more than 100 posts to choose from in this category, so I couldn’t narrow it down to just five posts. Instead, I selected five different types of posts to help you clean and organize your home.
Interestingly, I had my own clutter challenge just today. My 18-year-old son discovered water had leaked in his room from a leaky sink – several days ago. What a mess – wet carpet, wet box spring, wet bookcase and it was all starting to mildew. In a word – ew!
And, being a typical messy boy, and the packrat son of a packrat mother, well it was a challenge. We spent the whole morning packing up his books, mementos, and other debris so we can pull up the carpet. We also eliminated an enormous box o’ stuff. Even though I just convinced him to eliminate another enormous box of similar junk just last week! Hopefully, at the end, he will have a moderately clean and mildew-free room that is free of about 50% of its clutter. Blessing in disguise….
