So.. I feel like sharing something. It’s a personal little excerpt of my DECLUTTERING SYSTEM
Before I declutter I always clean the room itself. I actually take the time to clean before I clean.
I clean any fan or cooler I will be using. I also clear off and wipe down countertops. And then I make it a point to sweep and mop the floor especially in rooms we do not live in.
Before you decide this is weird, let me explain. When you start decluttering you will be pulling things out of the cabinets and drawers. You will need empty space and counters to lay the stuff on and since you might be keeping some of those items, you don’t want them on a dirty counter or floor. And neither do you want dust from your fan or cooler blowing on to your things or causing you allergies.
Besides that working in a clean room helps me to think clearly and calmly. It’s like I don’t want to lose my peaceful surroundings, I want to get the job done and done well.
What about you? Do you think a pre-clean Routine before decluttering is the right way to go?
Let’s see what everyone else thinks. Just choose one and let’s see the scores.
Looking forward to hearing from you in the comments below.
