PURGING takes URGING!!!


As the spring season begins, a naturally occurring phenomenon seems to take place in nearly every home.

SPRING CLEANING!

So today, I am going to include several tips for making life easier this spring.

My job is to clean up after 200 kids every day, and my motto at work is:

Work Smarter.. NOT Harder.

And over the past ten years as a Custodian I have found several ways to make the job easier and today I will share a few with you.

Lets start in the kitchen.

 

BATHROOM: BACTERIA BUSTING!

 

PURGING: This job takes URGING!

I have read that one of the worst things you can do when purging is to touch each object. Experts say this creates attachment and makes it harder to let go of your stuff.

SO how do you PURGE without touching?

You CAN’T!

SO here is how I deal with this issue.

I attack one closet at a time. When the closet is in my kids rooms, I make them stand there with me and we set a timer.

We have 5 minutes to go through their clothes and decide of the are KEEP/TOSS/ or DONATE.

Then we move onto their drawers.

By setting the timer we create urgency and this seems to keep us from reminiscing about the special times in that outfit.

We do the same thing with toys, books, and craft supplies.

So My tip for purging is to set a timer, and once a box or bag is filled up, SEAL IT and don’t ever open it again.

TOSS MEANS TOSS!

AND

DONATE MEANS DONATE!

 

I hope these tips have helped motivate you to get your own house in order this Spring.

I encourage you to use the comment section to share your very own tips on SPRING CLEANING.

Have a GREAT WEEK!
