Tips & Techniques
Share those blessingsTrying to decide if you want to keep an item you haven't used in a while? Keep this in mind: If it's not blessing you, it could be blessing someone else. Get rid of what you are not using, especially books, clothing, furniture, appliances, etc. There's no need to keep it cluttering your house and it may be exactly what a neighbor, friend, family member, or someone browsing at a thrift shop wants!
Devote 15 minutes to each roomDevote 15 minutes to each room everyday Instead of feeling overwhelmed by all the cleaning that needs to be done in the home. Devote 15 minutes to each room. Set the kitchen timer for 15 minutes and do a quick clean of the room. When the timer goes off, reset it and go on to the next room.
