A Month of De-Cluttering Before Summertime Fun

Winter is a time for nesting. Summer is a time for fun. In order for me to enjoy summer more, I need to rid myself of all of the clutter left behind from the nesting. :-/

May is a great time to pay attention to your home. School is winding down, which means less activities for the kids, more time for you. We have more energy from the warmer weather and if we pay attention to our homes in May, that means more free time in the summer months. So here’s my plan for a less-stress summer.

I have created a plan to de-clutter my home in small daily spurts. I am more focused when I accomplish tasks in compact time crunches, so each task should take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes tops. There are problem zones that will be addressed, cleaned and organized. Each day, I will document my progress and cross the task off of my list. (hopefully!) And at the end of May, my home will have less clutter, more organization and a happier me. If you’d like to join in, please grab the schedule and check back here for more information when the time comes. I promise it won’t hurt too much!


About finefrugality

I am a wife, mother, business owner, farmer, foster parent, retired probation officer and so much more. :-) I love to save money any way I can. I just don’t see the sense in handing my cash over to someone else when I don’t have to. I coupon, I grow and can food, I reuse and repurpose items, I scour thrift stores and during the warmer months, my Saturday mornings consist of yard sales and our local farmer’s market with my husband. I have organized local meetings which include coupon swaps, barter clubs and swap meets. Here is where I begin to share this life with the rest of the world. This is Fine Frugality. Because being frugal is not only fine. It is FINE.
