Focus On the Small Tasks Feeling confused by your spring-cleaning project/to do list? You can start using the laundry and work your way from there, which means arranging your closets comes close to that. Or you could begin with tidying up your table and work through the area from that starting-point. The important thing is always to really get going. Clean One Room at a Time This helps keep you from feeling confused and overwhelmed. Concentrate on organizing and cleaning up one room and resist the desire to-go and perform a little dusting in the next room before you are even done with the current one.
