7 Ways to Clean out your Clutter

This time of year you will find us busy working on house projects. Nothing says bring on the nice weather then some music and de-cluttering the house. After months of looking at the clutter that has accumulated it is time to start organizing. I like to do this NOW so we can spend the rest of the Summer enjoying the great outdoors. Like any house chore, it is better to have a method to your madness so as not to feel completely overwhelmed!
1. Stay focused- if you are committing to clean out the fridge don't get distracted by the over piling of dirty dishes starring at you. Often times I get so distracted that I honestly forget why I go in rooms. By taking one task at a time I focus on the job at hand and can do it in more depth without distraction!
2. Buy Quality Cleaning Supplies- Seems a bit silly to invest in cleaning products but then again wouldn't you rather have a clean home? Why not spend the money where it is needed?! I finally invested in nice cleaning equipment not just for the big cleaning jobs but also my every day use. This helps keep my floors clean, counters dusted and me happy because I am not fighting with bulky cheap equipment! Need some ideas on what to invest in try the NEW Aqua Spray Deep Clean Mop. This is very lightweight and easy to use around and get those stubborn dirt particles that like to go into cracks/corners. Plus, the e-cloth fiber technology removes grease, and over 99% of bacteria from hard floor surfaces using just water and the mop (No Chemicals Needed)!!
**I received a free products to facilitate my review. I was not required to write a positive review in any way. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC Regulations.
3. Commit to house projects. While I won't lie to you this year I found out that we really slacked on house projects the past few years. Keeping up on daily maintenance would have saved us so much time, money ugh you name it!!
4. Start in one room and work your way to others. We have a toss basket, Sale box and what we will keep. As I clean I also organize and sort our items. By taking it one room as a time I don't feel overwhelmed.
5. Keep only what you use. While I know many of you collect things try to limit what you keep. A few collectibles are great but if you keep EVERYTHING the clutter can really start to dampen your spirits. Personally, clutter upsets me and I get really frustrated when my house is very cluttered. A good clean always helps fix that. Plus, if you are not use it chances are someone else can!
6. Sell you stuff! There are so many ways to sell things you are not using. Try having a sale like we did this past weekend. We made $700+ after having a $5 everything you can fit in a bag on the third day. Not only does it get rid of all the stuff you are not using but it also makes you some profit for items that were literally collecting dust! If a sale is not your thing try places like Thredup, Ebay, LetGo App, Amazon or Facebook Garage Sale groups.
7. Be a more focused buyer. After clearing out our house this past month I realized I am not a very focused buyer. We have several duplicate DVDs because we had forgotten what we had when we were out at stores. From now on I will be a bit better at this because I don't want to have the as crammed as it had been before my massive clear out!
Do you Spring Clean??
How many of you have a Sale with items you no longer use??
