Living with Space – Declutter the Living Room
Look around the room and bring out those three boxes again and start getting rid of things that need to go to another room, things that need to go to a new home and things that need to go in the trash! Finished?
Let’s get the room organized.
Check the shelves, table tops etc. Use the rule of three, no more than three items on a flat surface (only exception, books & magazines)
While you are repositioning things go ahead and wash the knick-knacks, dust the shelves, table tops and straighten the books in the case.
Open all the drawers in the room and remove all the unwanted items
Clean out the magazine rack or buy a magazine rack to keep them tidy
Lift up all the cushions and vacuum
Move all the furniture and vacuum
Take the curtains down and wash
Tidy up all the cords so that you can’t see them
I know that you have more rooms to go, but you can use the tips from the Master Bedroom blog to clean up the additional bedrooms, bathrooms, and family room. Best of Luck and here’s to an amazing uncluttered year!
