Three Easy Steps to Declutter, Clean and Organize
Step 1: Declutter – Begin with an area that is used the most. Remove and sort everything into one of these piles: Keep, Pitch, Donate/Sell. Touch it ONCE and make a decision!
Step 2: Clean – Remove drawers and wipe them out, dust off the shelves and electronics, disinfect and clean surfaces. Using any cleaner and a magic eraser can make an area shine!
Step 3: Organize – Intentionally pick a place for each item going back in the area. Use trays, bins and boxes to keep small items in order. Shelving units and hanging organizers can help create order in larger spaces.
Getting the family involved and keeping this practice up daily or weekly will help keep order. Organization can help reduce stress, anxiety and chaos.
