Clean + Organized 2013

It’s officially 2013 – Happy New Year! Ready to get started on a ‘Clean + Organized 2013’? It’s going to be a great year – full of new habits and routines. You’ll be cleaning a little bit every day – just for 15-30 minutes. Think of all the time you’ll save not having to look for things – they’ll be where they need to be. Did you grab the cleaning calendar? Go to this post to see an infographic and explanation of my monthly cleaning schedule and the FREE printable.

It you bought my eBook, hopefully you’re in (or ready to get into) decluttering mode. Pulling Yourself Together: Creating a Cleaning Routine that Sticks has a great decluttering section and worksheet sure to get you motivated and on the right track. I’ve been re-working and decluttering  a couple areas in my home this weekend and I’d love to share them with you.

First up? Kids’ dressers. I went through everyone’s clothes and packed away the outgrown clothes, put some in a donate basket, and tossed a couple worn out socks and undies. Then I put the clothes back like this:

If you don’t fold and put away kids clothes like this, you are missing out! I’ll have a tutorial this week (it may seem silly, but it will revolutionize your laundry).

We paired down the large toys in the family room to one big basket (on sale at Target this week).

Then I added a couple baskets to the master bath closet and reworked the toiletries a bit. Nothing too spectacular, but definitely much easier to find everything.

What’s up for you today? Relaxing? Taking down Christmas decorations? Starting in on your resolutions?

Today’s the last day for the big sale in the shop:
