Top 2 Tuesday ...on a Monday!

For some reason, come Monday afternoon, I check the blogs and see that Taylor has posted the Top 2 Tuesday and therefore...I do it. 

So without further adieu...


Top 2 Cleaning or Organization Tips/Tricks

1. When I am organizing I put everything in bags. For example if I am cleaning up the kitchen and dining room - I have a bag for "bedroom" "bathroom" "garage" and "living room" so at first go through anything IN the kitchen or dining room that should go into any of those rooms I put those items in those bags. At the end of finishing that room, I take those bags to their respective places to then put those items away.


2. Whenever I check the mail I open it all IMMEDIATELY and throw away/ recycle  anything I don't need. That way it never comes in and makes a mess on the kitchen counter!

I do the same thing with mail, too! I love checking the mail in the first place (I'm kind of a geek like that ;)) and immediately put the mail where it belongs. We have so much clutter as it is, that mail adds to it too quickly!

I love the first tip. Thats a great idea for decluttering a room and putting everything in its place. And I do the same thing with my mail! Its either in the bill file, or out with the garbage!
