Today is a simple but important challenge: give your home a fresh start. It’s generally not a good idea to clean out your bedroom closet if you’re tripping over the shoes and clothes that you left out all over your floor!
If you need a few tips about giving your home a fresh start, then check out these articles:
Remember that today is about a Fresh Start, not a Head Start so please don’t burn yourself out by trying to organize areas that have been cluttered for months 🙂
Today’s Simple Organization Challenge: Tidy your home and do some laundry to give yourself a fresh start.
Most of my house was already in decent shape today – except the schoolroom, so my kids and I focused on that. I’m telling you, there was nothing simple about cleaning this room! We have a busy few weeks coming up though so I knew it was either clean it today or wait until November 🙂
In addition to cleaning the schoolroom (2.5 hrs), I did the dishes (15 minutes) and tidied my room (5 minutes). Plus the girls folded their laundry while they watched a show on Netflix. And even though cleaning our upstairs took the “simple” out of today’s organization challenge, I’m so glad that my entire house has a fresh start again!
How’d you do on giving your home a fresh start today? I’d love to hear in the comments – and if you blog about it, feel free to leave a link!
