Clean, Uncluttered Utility Closet The container store, Clean, Uncluttered Closet

As I began packing for the next few weeks of travel for Sterling + I, I realized not only did I need to ensure we were all packed up for the next 2 1/2 – 3ish weeks {wedding weekend + honeymoon}, but that our house needed in order for when we came home! As Mr. + Mrs. for the first time no less! No one likes coming home to a dirty home, so I made it a point to take advantage of The Container Store’s amazing selection of Laundress products and get to spring cleaning. A few tips I would note when you’re tackling your house…let’s be honest, it can get a little overwhelming.

Equip yourself with all the tools you’ll need to accomplish your Stepford Wife goals. Ha. Surface spray, laundry soap, room spray {this one is my personal fave – it’s so light + airy, AND exclusively at The Container Store}, etc. The Laundress, aside from having beautiful packaging {I’m such a sucker for good branding}, truly does have amazing products. I’ve used them previous to being sent a few new samples to test out, and can attest to the high quality of product. Yes, they’re eco-friendly, but they still work extremely well + have amazing scents.

Focus on ONE room at a time. I struggle with this one. But it you try to say I’m going to clean the entire house today, chances are you’re going to fail at that attempt, and then just be annoyed with yourself + your still messy house. Spring cleaning takes time, so give yourself that at least. Focus on tackling one room a day, or many even one room per weekend!

Don’t be afraid to get rid of stuff! Sift through, bag it + donate! My personal rule of thumb I try to abide by – after every season, if I didn’t wear something at all that’s been sitting in my closet from the same season prior {i.e. winter to winter}…it’s gotta go. Don’t forget the ‘ol saying….one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so don’t be afraid to make someone else’s day 😉

Really good advice! I always struggle with focusing on one space at a time. Then, I end up feeling overwhelmed.

Happy Tuesday

I love the container store! We just bought a house and I was planning a trip soon to get new organization supplies for it 🙂
