This week our Zone is very important to our homes. The entrance to our homes make the first impression on our guests, our family and ourselves. When we walk into a clean and tidy home our whole attitude will be uplifted. This puts a smile of pride on our faces. We have gone so long, looking at such a terrible mess, that we have been ashamed to answer the door. I want you to get rid of guilt that accompanies clutter and CHAOS. To do this you have to get off your franny and start to declutter this area.
FlyBabies: Your task is to declutter this area. Spend 15 minutes a day this week doing something, anything, in these rooms. They did not get dirty in a week and they will not get clean in a week, but you will be making headway. It is a trend! Get in the habit of decluttering in small segments of time. Decide what time of day you are going to tackle this little job, set a timer for 15 minutes, and just do it.
If Zone 1 is already decluttered: (that means no more clutter — only the things you use and love!) Go on to the detailed cleaning list. You will be amazed at how easy it is to shine and sparkle these rooms when the clutter is gone!
We’re in Zone 2: The Kitchen. Do you have a window above your sink? Has the
windowsill become a hot spot? Clear the clutter away and clean the decorative
items that tend to catch grease and fingerprints in the kitchen. Don’t have a
windowsill? Look at other areas near the sink that tend to be clutter magnets.
Perhaps you have a pile of grungy sponges that need to be tossed or disinfected
or some cleaners that need to be put away instead of left on the counter near
the sink. Decluttering the area around your sink will make it much
easier to keep your sink shiny!
