The way I am handling this "could be overwhelming" task is by assigning one room a day all this week. Today is the kitchen. I was a good little monkey and man do I feel good! Check out the before and after of my desk!
Pretty good huh? I love a little visual to keep me motivated. I also got outside and did gardening for the 1st time ever and although I don't have a clue what I'm doing, it turned out ok. (I'd be happy to get ideas if you had them.)
Tomorrow is the livingroom. I'll dust the picture frames, vacuum the curtains, dust the ceiling fan and wash the windows on top of the regular stuff I always do. I think I like this system. So much so I just might continue the one room a day thing from now on....?
