Flylady Baby Step #9

Today we are going to declutter a room. This sounds easy enough but it is probably the reason why our houses look dirty the most. Clutter is dirt when it comes right down to it.

So for today just take a timer and set it for 5 minutes. Then go to a room, and declutter for just the 5 minutes. Don’t be tempted to extend this too much. If you start and want to continue more then 5 minutes then just do it for 10. Don’t do more then that. The reason is we don’t want you to burn out. This is a marathon not a sprint. Your house didn’t get dirty overnight (that is assuming you didn’t throw a killer party dude!) and it will not get clean in a day either.

Are you more of a visual person? Watch Diane in Denmark:

Today you can put “5 minute Room Rescue” on your Morning or Before Bed routine. Keep in mind that just because you put it in one spot, doesn’t mean you have to keep it there. If it is not working then move it. Nothing is set in stone!
