Five Beauty Tips For Your Home


Not motivated?  Start with one minute.
Clean one drawer, one shelf, one file folder,
one cupboard, one tiny task.

Keep only what you believe to be Beautiful or Useful.
Think as if you were moving to a home
half the size of your current place.  Do you really need that?

Don't spend dollar time on penny jobs.
For me, I never spend quality time on windows ~
dust settles as do raindrops
even before I finish the last squeaky swipe.

A place for everything,
and everything in its place. 

 Remember the old Minute Rice commercials?
It's amazing how much we can accomplish in just 5 minutes.

Bonus TIP
Visit Rachel at Simple Notebook., who says
you don't need to buy more storage containers to get organized.
Now I like that idea. Check her site for lots of wonderful ideas
on how to simplify your home.

 Here's to beauty in every corner...

  1. Great reminders, Brenda. All my adult life, I've had to "work at" getting and staying organized!

  2. well I have too many filing cabinets that will get tossed after I'm!

  3. I love her site.
    It helped me to stay motivated in our downsizing.

  4. These are great tips, Brenda. I try to to put things back where they belong...kind of like a place for everything and everything in its place.

    Thanks for sharing! :o)

  5. All good reminders - I tend to collect piles of reading materials - a habit I am trying to break!

  6. Hi Brenda, these are great tips! I love the one about having a place for everything and everything in it's place. It is very hard to do, but life is so much calmer when we do. It isn't always easy but it is very freeing when the clutter is put away and it also feels good to give things that are not being used to others. Have a wonderful day ahead! Delisa :)

  7. Great reminders, Brenda. Getting motivated is often my bugaboo. Just clearing one thing up will often inspire me to keep going.
