OH I LOVE THIS!! I just found a list of decluttering/cleaning by month. She took her home, divided it into twelve zones, and spent a whole month in each zone. Each zone gets a thorough decluttering, cleaning and sprucing up (paint and the like).
I LOVE this idea!!!
Since August is a pretty busy month for us, I will start in September. I will admit I am kind of sad I did not see this and start in the NEW year, so that by Christmas my house will be all nice and done.
Thankfully because beloved requested it, we have done a lot of decluttering. Over 1/4 of our stuff went into the garage for the garage sale (which will have to wait until this weekend because last weekend it poured rain!). But I still like the idea of being able to do paint touch ups and the like.
AND once it is clean, it will stay clean. OH how I want that to happen so desperately. And I believe it can once the clutter is gone. It is amazing how much time I spend cleaning clutter!
