If you are like me, spring cleaning brings you lots of joy but also lots of stress. It’s finally getting warm outside, the windows can finally be open, and the house has probably not been a clean as you’d like to have it.
Cleaning can seem like a massively overwhelming task when you are trying to tackle most of the house and usually all at once.
Breaking the cleaning down by room is a great way to feel less overwhelmed, and I’m also going to share an amazing tip I stumbled across online.
Seems simple enough right? So when you take something out to use it, say the olive oil when you are cooking- put it right back where it goes, don’t set it down on counter.
I also tend to move from room to room and not complete the first room because I find something else that can worked on. So I create a rule where I can ONLY put away what I came to the room to put away, no other items.
Narrowing cleaning down to one room, one task, one area even at a time makes the tasks seem easier to complete since there isn’t a much going on in that one little area, room, etc.
For some people, it might help to set a time and get as much cleaning done in each room in 5 or 10 minutes as possible, and it might surprise you that many rooms only do take 5 minutes.

Love what you said about putting things away immediately. I always try to go by the 5 minute rule. If a task takes less than 5 mins, do it immediately.
