Want to completely cleanse your home from clutter in ONE week? As you know, I am obsessed with the #konmarimethod, but my only complaint is that it’s a somewhat tedious and tiring process that can take months to whip your place into shape. And I’m sorry, Ms. Kondo… Ain’t nobody got time for that, especially not mothers! So we’re challenging you to tackle one task a day for seven days. Spring cleaning using the mommy chic(k) method, if you will! Join us!
Clothes, shoes and bags are loaded with memories and the hardest to part with for most women, so fast and furious purging might be the best way to really let the most go. Bag it up and donate it before the buzzer dings!
Whether you’re a CEO or SAHM, chances are you’ve got piles of paperwork somewhere. Time to make that work space, WERK!
Liven up your laptop and perk up your phone by cleaning them out, backing up what’s important and trashing the rest. Reward yourself with pretty clean new backgrounds on your devices when you’re done.
Chances are it’s been a while since you’ve really taken a cold hard look at what’s chilling in your fridge. Once you’re done cleaning up, attempt to do some meal planning with the healthy options that have been hiding in your pantry and produce drawers!
There are two things in life as a mom that really make me feel like I have it together… Even if I might not! Those would be having a fresh manicure and driving a clean car. Don’t fall into the trap of letting clutter overcome your car!
The garage or attic can be a great place for long term storage, but the problem with that is we often dump things there and then forget them. Take this opportunity to breakup with the boxes of unneeded and underutilized “stuff” that is serving no purpose by taking up storage space.
Lastly, make an effort to include tidying on your “to-do” list daily! Once you’ve decluttered and detoxed your space, don’t turn back. A little effort every day can make a huge impact on your home!
