Welcome to our thread in which we chat about declutter efforts. We try to give at least the equivalent of 15 minutes a day to clear and organize our lovely homes! You might rather combine efforts into longer spans on a few days, or maybe you like marathon sessions to get a bunch done at once. However you fight against clutter's takeover plans, we'd love to hear about it!
Today is the 3rd anniversary of the Cleaning Focus Forum, too.
"No matter what your thoughts on cleaning may be - sharing your own plan, or asking advice, or giving encouragement - the new Cleaning Focus thread should be a helpful hangout! "
Decluttering benefits cleaning, for sure. If you want an area to be easier and faster to clean, it helps to get the clutter that's there out of the way or organized first.
In the fourth and last actual "round" through our houses in Cleaning Focus 2017, to get ready for holidays, this month the Focus weeks will be on
bathrooms, office (or "other"), closets, laundry, and storage.
Then that plan takes us back toward the "hosting", or more visible spaces in October, so that by Nov 6 they are ready so we can plan for company and calm celebrating, and "coast" along on maintenance cleaning.
