PHASE 1: decluttering

I would like to start the "spring cleaning" phase on the Monday following the first day of spring (March 23). That gives me a time-frame for the completion of Phase 1...the dreaded Decluttering.

I decided to divide my house into 10 "areas."

  • Our bedroom
  • Son's bedroom
  • 1 1/2 baths with adjoining small hallways (one upstairs, one down)
  • Living/Dining rooms
  • Kitchen
  • Office
  • Den
  • Laundry/mud room
  • Basement
  • Garage

10 areas starting this Monday will mean decluttering 2 areas each week. That seems to be an attainable goal.

In my next post I will give my plan of attack.
