Here’s a plan (call it a New Year’s resolution, if you want) to start 2021 off right.
Make a list of the rooms in your home and assign a week in 2021 to tackle that space. Start with your most used space first, like the kitchen. Account for all rooms, including the laundry room, garage, etc.
In each week, use the following checklist:
Declutter: Place any items you no longer need into categories of garbage, donate/yard sale, and rehome. Rehome is for items that belong elsewhere in your house or that you’d like to give to someone else.
Shipshape: Wipe down all shelves, cabinets, the inside of drawers and baseboards. Clean mirrors and windows, and then the floors (under and behind furniture too).
Organize: Put every item in its appropriate place, and organize them how it’s most useful to you.
Remove: Take out the garbage, drop off donations or put yard sale items in a pile, and move items to their appropriate homes.
Plan: Make a list of any items you need to replace or restock, and buy them the next time you shop.
Your spring cleaning list just got a lot shorter because most of it will already be complete. What a great way to start off the new year.
