December 1st is two days away, which means guests are coming. And that means you making your annual “Sorry it’s so messy” speech. And they say, “No it’s not!” but secretly they’re full-on judging you.
Let’s break that pattern this year. There’s a technique called the “calendar method” that can get your house clean by the holidays.
Print out a calendar of the next 30 days. On the first day, get rid of one piece of clutter in your house, either throw it away, give it away, or sell it, but it’s gotta be gone by the end of the day. Then cross off that day on the calendar.
On day two, get rid of two pieces of clutter. On day three, three pieces. You’ll start to get in the habit soon and since you have a pre-determined number of things to get rid of every day, you’ll pace yourself.
By the end of the month, you’ll have gotten rid of almost 500 pieces of clutter. And that WILL make a difference in how clean your home is.
