Dreamer7787 - The hoper of far-flung hopes, and the dreamer of improbable dreams.
I basically took it one room at a time. I started by focusing on one room only for 30 minutes. After that one room was done, I would start the next day’s 30 minutes by tidying up anything that had gotten out of place in the “finished room” and then focus on the next room. By the end, it really became just going through the house and tidying up. :)
I started with the kitchen because that room is the first room you walk into in our house and the most used. Then I did the rooms that guests see (dinning room, living room, bathroom). Then the bedroom and the last thing to tackle was the study. Actually, the study still needs work, but it’s mostly boyfriend’s stuff so I’ve left it up to him, which is probably why it’s the most messy room in the house. lol
I put off cleaning for a long time because I had no clue where to start (I also had a lot of boxes to unpack from the move too and no place to put the stuff!). Buying some new storage pieces really helped me to organize as I went.
Hope that helps! :)
