Mom likes books, especially self help books. Dieting books and cleaning books have her book shelves overflowing. This is a sampling of some of the cleaning and organizing books that I brought into my house hoping to help me kick the clutter habit.
This is a cabinet in the kitchen that is home to craft supplies, coloring books, candles and my address book. My children have not opened a coloring book in seven years, but I had about twenty-five stashed in this cabinet with a container filled with thousands of crayons. Cleaning these two cabinets took less than forty-five minutes, but I had been putting it off because I never had "enough time". I also cleaned my linen closet and organized the bathroom cabinets, each taking less than 30 minutes
Getting rid of the clutter gives you a feeling of control. It may not surprise you, but now my family can find any item they want. Keep your kitchen timer handy and get to work! You will be amazed at what you can accomplish. I tried this method on my children and it worked for them also. This could be the miracle cure for our messiness.
