You've heard of spring cleaning. Why not give "fall
cleaning" a try? Now may be the perfect time as the weather changes and we
spend more time indoors. After all, you don't want to be one of those people
featured on "Hoarders."
For instance, you'll want to get a good night's sleep. It'll
put you in a good frame of mind for the tough decisions you'll have to make. As
for those, you need to ask yourself some hard questions when you come across
something that may need to be thrown away:
I want the next generation of my family to have this?
they actually want it?
There's probably one part of your house that drives you the
most crazy because it's filled with so much junk. Focus on that first and get
it out of the way. You'll feel a great sense of accomplishment and it'll give
you a big incentive to get the rest of the house tidied up.
