As we prepare for the holiday season, and get ready to welcome home family and friends, our cleaning checklist will help you get your house in order! Here’s some additional tips we picked up from Netflix’s The Home Edit!

  • Set goals! What do you hope to accomplish by cleaning up and cleaning out?
  • Start small…don’t take on too much at one time.
  • “EDIT” your way through each space. Get rid of what you don’t need.
  • Empty the space completely. If you’re working on the pantry, take EVERYTHING out.
  • Categorize everything that is left after you edit.
  • Then you can purchase containers. Know what you need to organize for each category before you purchase “product”, i.e. containers.
  • Categories should be about what the space does, not what you call it.
  • Organize by COLOR. Not just because it is pretty, but because it is easy to keep up with your organization.
  • Label everything!
  • You don’t need that much back stock….I know this is difficult right now, because you don’t know when you’ll be able to get certain things, but try not to stock up too much.
  • Move on to the next room and repeat!
