Remember when I compared Swiffer with the store brands last week?
Remember the overwhelming mess when I pulled out the couch?
I made it through that mess in 8 minutes that included finding my camera and (random affiliate link alert) an extra SD card when the first one was full.
Unfortunately, I have plenty of experience with overwhelming messes so I knew exactly what to do:
I grabbed a trash bag and removed the trash. Look how much LESS overwhelming it was after that:
2. I put away the easy stuff. Easy stuff is stuff that has a definite home, but it’s not in that home. Easy stuff requires no decision making whatsoever, just the action of taking things where they go. I grabbed all the dirty laundry (oh my word, now we know where all those socks went) and took it to the laundry room.
Minus socks, the space was less overwhelming:
I grabbed all of the hair stuff in one hand and the pens and pencils (and some more trash) in the other and took them where they go.
And it was done:
Ready to be Swiffered.
What overwhelming-at-first-sight clutter have you worked through lately?
