How To Organize Your Spring-Clean

Spring makes everything New Again

I love when Spring arrives, I open all the windows in the home to let the sunshine & breeze in and Winter’s dirt & dust out!

My  Deep-Clean Checklist works well for going through the home to check off those areas that take a beating every winter season; entry ways, downstairs & hallway half baths, living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, and floors.

Now, that you have a plan of action, you need to gather your tools and equipment for the project.

Mine & Martha’s favorite Natural Cleaning Products

“I’m not here to reinvent the wheel – just tweak it!” that’s what I did with 2 of Martha’s recipes. I have been using my own solutions + Martha’s in my home for the last few weeks, I will post the outcomes with the recipes in a future post with pics, along with how to store them properly.

The two resources above will help get you started on your way to breathing fresh air back into the home!

How To Organize Your Life Without Feeling Overwhelmed

Clutter is not just the stuff all around you

Do you sometimes feel like you don’t know how to organize your life?

Most people look at their clutter, feel tired and overwhelmed, and then go back to ignoring it as the piles get larger and larger.

They think let’s ignore it because it has become unmanageable plus it’s an easier choice. As the piles grow, they feel more overwhelmed, more exhausted, more stressed. But for a variety of personal reasons, they choose to ignore it still.

Soon, they pay money to warehouse the clutter somewhere, toss it all without giving it any thought, or live with it because they’ve developed a hoarding situation. Hoarding is a clear case of not making decisions, because it’s too emotional, too hurtful, or you just don’t know where to start.

Most people give up before they begin because organizing their space feels and looks like such a huge job. The trick is to take the overwhelming feeling out of the process. We do that by focusing on taking one step (zone=area of home or office) at a time:

  • Pick a zone to start with, such as closets.
  • Select one item of clothing at a time and choose whether or not you still like, use and need the item in your hand. (I say to myself “have I used this is the past 6 months?)
  • Choose a Home to keep that item and place it there.
  • Repeat these steps with the next zone.

Figure out what’s important to you. Is it your health and well being, happiness, family, work, friends? Awesome! Knowing what’s most important to you is a valuable tool in helping you get and stay motivated to organize your life without feeling overwhelmed.

As always, if you require additional support and guidance, hire a professional you feel comfortable working with. You can contact Cheryl @ CCHC for a free 30 minute consultation to help you get started with your organizational journey.

Fast 5 Friday

fast_five_logoA Clean & Tidy space is only a few mini projects away. Here are 5 fast tips for helping you keep your space sparkling and organized.

  1. Dishwasher is not just for dishes: Go around the house and collect the toys, soap dishes, car cup holders, sponges, pet dishes, dish racks. Put them all in the dishwasher and send them through a clean cycle.
  2. Wear The Glove Around The House: I have an extra pair of rubber gloves (label them) that I wear around house to wipe down furniture, pillows, blankets, lamp shades, stuffed animals, baseboards, door trims, small area rugs, and table clothes to get crumbs off.
  3. Gather up your wagon partner: Grab a wagon and wheel around to every room to pick up the belongings that need to be placed back to their home.
  4. Hang Coats: Hang all the coats laying around the house, and straighten up the shoes and boots by your entry door.
  5. Make The Bed: It will be your first task of the day, it will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task and then another task. It’s a reminder that the little things do matter.
