ReGroup: Clean Your Space

Do you ever feel like you’ve lost complete control of your life?  I’m there right  now.  In our house we’re ramping up for a busy holiday season that starts in mid-November and goes full steam until New Years Day.  I know regrouping is necessary.  Everyday in October I’ll be posting ways I regroup or ways I should be regrouping.

1.  Clean your space.

Recently my husband and I returned from a quick trip to New York City and we were both completely exhausted.  Our house was a pit from packing and unpacking, our pantry was bare, our refrigerator was bare and again, we were exhausted.  Our first night back we did the necessities only:  pre-made coffee for the next morning (priority #1), cleaned school uniforms, and packed lunches.  The kids went to bed pronto and Mom and Dad went to bed at 8:00 PM.  Do not judge.

The next night we allowed our kids to watch a little more TV than usual so we could clean our space.  Normally, I’m all about the kids helping us clean but monitoring a 3 and 4 year old while they clean is the exact opposite of productive.  We cleaned the main living areas:  our bedroom, the living room, and the kitchen.  Then we relaxed, played with the kids, and read some books.  I cannot even explain how easy I rest knowing the majority of the house is clean.  I suppose the mantra, “Clean house, clean mind,” is true in this circumstance.

Do you have a quick and easy tip for cleaning your space?
