Have you been wanting to get started organizing your home? It is not as difficult as it seems. Just take the first step. Get up out of the chair. Turn off the television. Look around you. What do you see? Be honest here. Take a close look because this is the worst it will ever be, if you let me help you get control of your clutter.
Take a plastic bag, or even a spare cardboard box and make a quick pass around the room. Use the bag for trash. If there are broken toys, food wrappers, even worn-out clothes laying around, put it in the trash. This is the first step to clean, but it is a step in the right direction.
Next, look under furniture, behind doors, do you see anything else that could go out now? Just a word of caution here, be fair! Don’t use this as an excuse to toss out something you do not like but that does not belong to you, in the false label of cleaning. How would you feel if someone did it to your stuff? It is fair to use this as a time for team building.
After removing your stuff to the trash, take a step back and see if you think things look a bit better? I believe you will like what you see. Tomorrow, come back, do it again, this time digging deeper for stuff that you don’t really use. Way to go! This is a good first step.
