Nightfall comes ... and on come the lights!
Today in the Cleaning Challenge, it's time to assess outdoor illumination.
Take a good look at the light fixtures on the porch, path and driveway; do they shine a welcome light on your front porch? Dust down the fixtures, clean the diffusing glass, and replace any dim or burned-out bulbs.
Next, survey the front of your home from across the street. Do you need to add exterior lighting? Consider easy-to-install options like solar lights to beef up security and highlight landscaping.
Does clutter-cutting ebb and flow according to your frustration level? Pull the sting: add regular declutter sessions to your calendar. Approaching problem areas in a calm frame of mind boosts decision-making energies.
