Cleaning brings Spring! So what are you waiting for?

I am a fan of cleaning, clearing and organizing homes. Not everyone shares my high out of purging and straightening but many have often sought my advice to get the clutter out and the clean in!

One of the best resources for tips, ideas and strategies for all domestic life throws our way is Good Housekeeping. No one doubts the advice of the diligent researchers at the Good Housekeeping Institute.

They have been testing products, recipes and strategies for all things related to domestic life for over a hundred years. GH is a true and tried source for quality and reliability.

Needless to say, I am a subscriber to the magazine and its online newsletter. Good Housekeeping goes way back in the LD family tree. My Nana’s (great-grandmother) Good Housekeeping book has been a prized possession by all generations in our family.

The quality and timelessness of Good Housekeeping links women from era to era, all with the mission to provide honest and reasonable advice for domestic life.

The most recent newsletter from GH on my email had a great list of 25 ways to “Clean out the Clutter.” Check out the link! Easy, doable ideas for eliminating clutter in your home. As Spring is on the horizon this seemed like a great little piece to share!

I have to give big props to my buddy at True Tales from Cliftonia, for her ambitious lent 40 bags in 40 days challenge. Her challenge uses many of the elements mentioned in GH’s “Clean out the Clutter.” She was inspired by Sarah from Clover Lane who is also living the challenge. Both have a great goal of eliminating one trash bag of stuff from their home each day of lent. As they bag, they also clean the closet, surface, cabinet etc. A two for one win! Eliminate unused items and get a start on spring cleaning! There is nothing better than a clear and clutter free drawer or cabinet 🙂

So what are you waiting for? Try out one of the ways to get clutter out of your life and revel in the literal weight being lifted from your life 🙂
