Spring cleaning and organization can be rewarding once finished, but a daunting task before you begin.  Don’t stress and remember that it doesn’t all have to happen in one day.  In fact, we suggest stretching it out by focusing on one area/room/closet/drawer (whatever you can handle) each day.

Need more accountability?  Try creating a daily schedule for the month with one space (drawer/closet/room) per day.  Crossing it off at the end of the day provides a great feeling of accomplishment!
