Plan ahead #4

Some people do a family campout during the summer, but what about a family cleanout?  Pick a room, the garage, the yard or just a toy box or drawer to clean or redecorate.

I’ve often thought it would be nice to have one totally empty room in my house so that I could clean it (yes, an empty room still needs cleaning) and then clean and sort through items as I transfer them into the “clean, empty” room.  With the “old” room now empty, it would be easier to clean.  😊

But, life doesn’t work that way.  We tend to fill an empty space, so a deep clean takes time and intention.

Combine your cleaning with a garage or yard sale and perhaps a lemonade or snack stand.  Better yet, invite your neighbors to join you and have a block sale.
