These stories are about my journey, and I know that everyone is going to have a different experience, and that’s okay.
To me, the bathroom is the easiest place to start since this isn’t a common room to store your sentimental items. And another advantage of beginning in the bathroom is that it would provide you with a room of relaxation and an area where you can pamper yourself.
I will explain step by step how I clean each room and what to do.
Although, looking back at it now, the approach I should have done this project in is as follows… Although I know that not everyone will have all of these rooms.
- Foyer (hallway closet and other closets, excluding the bedroom closet, that’s for later)
- Living Room
- Laundry Room
- Bedroom(s) (and office)
After reflecting in my journey with my boyfriend and his mom, I realized I had approached her in a wrong manner. In my defense we were pressed for time so sadly, we needed to prioritize what was important. If I can do it all over, I would have done it this way. That being said, I really do recommend doing it in order from the above.
This list makes sense because the easier rooms are the bathroom and kitchen. I left the bedroom near the end since that is where we store our sentimental items, and that is something that we must not start with. If we start with the hardest rooms, this mission wouldn’t be able for lift off. The bedroom is almost last so you can build confidence and know that you are ready to finish this project.
Mind you, my method probably isn’t going to work for everyone and that’s okay. You just got to find something that works for you. Use my experience as a guide line.
