Today I’m keeping it short and sweet for Tidy Tuesday. What is the #1 rule for cleaning out your home? Find out below!
Don’t tell anyone what you are getting rid of! You heard me. Don’t tell.
When I started cleaning out the spare bedroom in our condo, I asked my husband to go through some of our things and make a pile of stuff to donate/throw away. MISTAKE. He only had about 2 items in his “get rid of” pile. I think he is a hoarder. But the point is, we really didn’t need the blow-up mattress with the hole in it because we were never going to actually patch it.
Of course, you don’t want to go into your husband/wife/child/parent’s room and clear out their things. But when it comes to your own stuff, you know what you want and what you need. Having other opinions in the mix can just cause confusion or guilt when selecting what you don’t need.
