New Year Cleaning Challenge: Family Room Week Wrap-Up

clean and organized family room

Day 42 of the New Year Cleaning Challenge

This week, we've worked on the household's gathering space: the family room. Time for a weekend wrap-up!

Today, take the last steps to clean, declutter and organize the family room.

Tomorrow, we'll tackle family bathrooms in the New Year Cleaning Challenge, bringing these personal care areas to a squeaky clean state.

Today's Assignment:
Wrap Up Family Room Week

In the family room this week, we've brought order to the household's gathering space--and organized entertainment media, books and magazines, and children's toys.

Today, review your family room checklist. If possible, complete the last few tasks today. You'll set the stage for next week's focus area: bathrooms.

No time to finish today? Note remaining tasks, and add them to your to-do list or planner to be tackled when time permits. Can you delegate any remaining chores?

Remember: there's no such thing as "behind"; every step you take is one more stride toward a clean and organized home!
