Zone 5 is the living room, family room, or den. But, only focus on one this week. After a few months, you will have them decluttered them all and the detailed cleaning will be a breeze.
Flybabies: Your task is to declutter this area. Spend 15 minutes a day this week doing something, anything, in this room. It did not get dirty in a week and it will not get clean in a week, but you will be making head-way. 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 5 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 enjoy this room with family and friends when the clutter is gone!
We’re in Zone 5: The Living Room on Monday and Zone 1: Front Porch, Entrance, and Dining Room for the rest of the week. Let’s take a look at our electronics in the living room. Are they dusty? Are your remotes harboring germs? Take a few moments to clean your tv and stereo equipment. Don’t obsess, just spend a few
minutes getting rid of dust and grime!
Take some time to view your entrance as a first time guest to your home would. Is your front porch/entry barren? Are your decorations faded and look more like they are waiting for trash pickup rather than to welcome guests? It’s time to spruce this area up! Try adding a welcome mat which will also help stop dirt from entering your home. Perhaps a wreath for your door or a plant beside the door. With a little cleaning and a decoration or two, your front porch will make YOU and your guests smile!
