First, I found me a list. Two lists actually. I love making lists, but I figured seeing someone else's list would help me make my list.
So here are the lists that I found:
I copied and pasted them into Word, combining them room by room. I got the list condensed down, deleting duplicates, taking out rooms we don't have in our house, putting check boxes by each item, and putting it into columns to reduce the number of pages (I love efficiency). I had a ball making the list. I love lists. I think I've mentioned that before. Someday, I should make a list of all the reasons why I love making lists.
At the top of my list I had these instructions (which I condensed from this site):
So I had my list, thank you Pinterest. Next, I knew I wanted to declutter as I went along. We have more things stuffed in this house than two adults and a baby need. I'm tired of cleaning it all up. As I go through each room I am thinning out and decluttering. My two guides for this are two pins I found on Pinterest as well:
|I always use a fun colored marker to check off items on a list. It makes it easier to see the progress I'm making and adds color. Color is happy!|
