New series: 10 simple + frugal ideas to clean and organize your home (part of 5 weeks to an Organized Home)

10 simple +  frugal ideas to clean and organize your home

Excited to announce this series starting today and going for the next 5 weeks.

One of the goals I have for the first few months of this year is to clean and organize every room in my home, room by room.  Taking one room at a time and going through every closet, cabinet, drawer, basket, shelf – and purge, clean, reorganizing it all.  No drawer, corner, paper, closet, nook or cranny will be left undisturbed!  And when warmer weather gets here I will be ready to have a big spring yard sale. 

I know that I am not the only one that can’t wait to get the Christmas stuff down so the cleaning, purging, organizing can begin!  It is all over Pinterest, blogland, even facebook – everyone is looking for ideas and working on organizing/simplifying/cleaning their homes.  And I am right there with you!  I would much rather clean out closets and drawers and organize indoors while it is freezing outside so when warmer temps get here I can get busy in the yard or just enjoy spring.

So here’s how the series will work…

Every Monday and Wednesday for the next 5 weeks, I will be posting a SIMPLE + frugal idea to help you organize a particular area in your home.  These are going to be simple ideas and very frugal (no trips to an expensive container store + no mind-blowing ideas either).  I even asked a few blogging friends to share some of their tips too.  Huge disclaimer: I am NOT a great organizer or house-cleaner.  Don’t get me wrong… I would LOVE to have a perfectly organized or clean house, but I am learning and trying (and failing more times than not) just like you.   But I hope that some simple things that I do use in my home might be a help to you.

Then on Fridays, I will be sharing some of my favorite posts from bloggers and Pinterest on cleaning and organizing so I can learn right along with you during this series!

I may share some of the room before/after cleaning pictures or piles of stuff I clean out on Facebook or Instagram so make sure you are following me.

Now let’s get to work cleaning and organizing!

Here’s all the posts from the series so far…

    I love these posts. I have a fairly small home with 5 people and 1 dog, so these really help. The one thing that’s changed my household dramatically, is the new laundry routine. I wash it, dry it & put it away immediately. THANK YOU!
