I recently ran across a blog that was participating in “31 Days to Clean”. I read up on it at Joyful Mothering. I just downloaded the book, but I am making up my own rules too. I’m just committing to clean an area a day. I figure I can get the house pretty and sparkling in a month. Nick has been a huge help in this area. We deep cleaned our room (which is a serious accomplishment), and did lots of yard work, Nick also cleaned up the living room. Each room gets emptied of clutter and excess. We will be having a yard sale at the end of this endeavor.
Part of my own rules is keeping the spic-n-span maintained. It’s great to take back control. It’s a concerted and deliberate approach to order. There is a challenge everyday, so be sure to click the link in the side bar to catch up and join in. If I can do it, you can to. Let the Spring cleaning begin!
