Since we’ve been stuck in the house for practically an entire week now, I’ve been trying to get some cleaning done. I mean, my mother has been zooming around the house like the Energizer Bunny — cleaning out her bins, sorting mail and putting laundry away as if it were an Olympic sport — so I really couldn’t let a woman some 25 years older show me up. It was a pride thing, really. Well, that and the fact that I sort of let my Great Clean of 2013 fall by the wayside once the summer ended. You remember, friends, I started with such steam, with such gusto, and then…? Everything just seemed to fizzle out…to…nothing.
But no more! Over these last couple weeks, I’ve really been trying to get my head in the decluttering game. In fact, that’s what I’ll be doing for the rest of the day today, which is why I’d love your advice!
What are your best tips for decluttering? How do you stay on top of things so they don’t pile up? What has worked for you in the past? What hasn’t? And, what projects are currently on your to-do list, friends?
P.S. If I don’t come back, you’ll know I’ve drowned in all those piles, haha!! 🙂
