Every minute
spent organizing
an hour is
earned.

-Benjamin Franklin

Get your lfamily room clean in 15 minutes

* Clear the clutter. tour the room with a laundry basket in tow, picking up any out-of-place items for redistribution later.
 
* Speed dust at eye level. Grab two electrostatic or microfiber cloths. Rotate out the grimy cloth, or opt for quick two-handed-dust-busting.
 
* Fluff pillows and fold throws. These small adjustments result in big visual impact.

Keep your Home Organize

Keep  your Home Organize
Follow these guidelines to maintain order.
 
1.Become a clutter detective
Look for items that tend to accumulate, then create a new home for them. Clutter is a sign that your current storage system isn't working.
 
2. Satisfy the urge to purge
If your storage spaces and closets are overflowing, donate or toss what you no longer use. One easy rule: At the end of each season, go through your closet and get rid of anything you didn't wear this year.
 
3. Schedule a date

Scour with power

Scour with Power- Baking Soda
 
Baking soda-cost $1.00 for a 16-oz box.
 
 
A common ingredient in cookies, baking soda is also an inexpensive and natural way to clean your house and eliminate odors.
 
Scour with power
To make your own bathroom scrub, mix 3/4 cup baking soda with 1 tablespoon liquid detergent. Add vinegar to give it a thick, creamy texture.

Clean on the cheap

Clean on the cheap- Wipe off a dirty faucet
 
To get rid of lime buildup, make a paste of 1 teaspoon vinegar and 2 tablespoons salt. Apply to sink fixtures and rub with a cloth.
 
 
 
 
 
Clean on the cheap- Polish wood
 
If it's varnished: Add a few drops of lemon oil to 1/2 cup warm water. Spray onto a slightly damp cotton cloth and wipe furniture. If it's unvarnished: Mix 2 teaspoons each of olive oil and lemon juice. Apply to a soft cotton cloth. Use wide strokes to distribute evenly.

Use it or lose it

Use it or lose it
 
Here's a way to track, on an ongoing basis, which clothes you wear and which you tend to ignore. Turn the hangers backward over the rod for items you suspect are worn infrequently. If you pull a garment off and wear it, turn the hanger around properly. Soon it will be easy to spot clothe that aren't getting much use because their hangers will still be backwards.

Most people wear twenty percent of their clothes eighty percent of the time

Most people wear twenty percent of their clothes eighty percent of the time.
 
It would be unrealistic to get rid of that unused majority all at once. Instead, clean out your closet progressively. Start at one end. Look at each garment and assign it to one of three categories:
1. Keep. The keep items that should stay in your closet are those that you wear often. You may find special occasion and sentimentally significant items that you want to hold onto. Identify a separate storage space for these so your closet isn't so full.

Access your belts and scarves

Access your accessories
 
You are more likely to wear belts and scarves if you can see them. Storage options include:
* Suspending them on individual hooks screwed into the back of the closet door.
 
* Rolling and placing them in a clear, multi-pocket footwear bag.
 
* Hanging them on a slice-out rack mounted to the closet wall.
 
* Using a hanger-style organizer stored alongside your clothes.
 
 
If you have jewelry that goes with only one outfit, put it in a resealable bag and fasten the bag to the hanger holding that ensemble.

Get rid of all your memories?

You'll have to "get rid of all your memories?
 
Getting organized not about throwing away your memories. But it's hard to relax when keepsakes compete for your attention from every direction. If you're saving something because it holds a special memory for you, double check whether there's another way to reminisce. Does some other object prompt similar emotions? Consider this: what it giving away an item would enhance its significance? Share your cherished possessions now with younger generations and see them come alive again.

You might need it someday?

Worried that... You might need it someday?
 
If you keep everything you might need someday, you're going to need a warehouse. If everything seems potentially useful, maybe you're not sure what's truly important to you. Think about your hopes and dreams. Then identify what items or information will support you in achieving them. Without knowing this, all of your stuff can seem worthwhile.
 
AVOID CREATING A NEW GOAL TO JUSTIFY PIECE OF CLUTTER,
 
Worried that... You paid good money for it?
