Winter gives the earth a deep cleansing and kills the germs in the air… BUT Spring is a season of rebirth, rejuvenation, resurrection and regrowth. The month of March has already passed and April is here. We are “Moving Forward by Faith” as we prepare for our period of renewal and attempt to restore a bit of Order to our lives. So now we need a 60-day plan… and then it will be Summer! Get the family to participate. Review the plan with them and get their support & buy-in (even though it may under duress :-D)…. and absolutely, have a BIG party when it’s done!
Ready, Set, Begin!
Days 1 thru 30 – Spring Cleaning **
Assess your physical space and determine three (3) major areas that require spring cleaning first and allot ample time to complete.
Assign small tasks to be completed over time.
Write down the plan, a realistic timeline and post it.
Yes, there is a difference between cleaning and organizing…
Days 30 thru 60 – Organizing **
Identify two (2) small areas that need to be decluttered and organized. For those areas that have some much stuff that we were unable to clean thoroughly.
We will need to sort & purge until the area is uncluttered. Then we can put everything into their proper place.
Have fun with it!
