Home Organization 31 Day Detox Diet

31 Days to an Organized and Clean Haven
You’ve heard of the 30 Detox Diet for your body, now here is one that is not only for your health but it is also for your home. Purge your home of unnecessary clutter and organize it with these useful tips. You will find a 31 day plan of methods you can use to get the home you want and deserve!
Making a home your ‘haven’ to come home to every night is extremely important. Clutter and chaos can have a profound effect on your body’s stress levels and your personal health. Following the instructions in this post as a jumping off point can help remedy your need for peace in your home. Creating a calm and serene environment is important for health reasons but also for the growth and development of your family…young and less young (I didn’t want to say old). Hahaha:)
Having your children grow up in a home that is streamlined, organized, and peaceful can greatly benefit their emotional well being, stress resistance, problem solving, and overall character development. Of course the same benefits are there for adults as well, but I do it all for the children!

Tear….they grow up so fast.

    Haha my friend. You are the BEST person to give this lesson. With 3 kids, I have no clue how you do it. One thing that caught my attention was that you gave a freebie day, the day after cleaning the garage. Lol. Is that because some garages are 2 day projects(like mine).
    I would like to give some excellent advice to your readers. Magic erasers are my best friend when cleaning! I’m telling everyone to listen carefully. For the shower: Kaboom and magic eraser. Your shower/bathtub will shine with little work. You will not believe what comes off that bathtub with only 1 weeks use, by just wiping it down with that magic eraser. Kaboom and magic erasers have MANY uses. They sell no name brand in bulk on Amazon or for those of you on a super limited budget; You can even get them at the dollar store. They are not nearly as sturdy as the name brand, but they do the job. You will be amazed! Name brand last longer, whereas generic are like a one or two use. Use them on walls (they take scuff marks off walls) I use them on EVERYTHING because they take things off with ease that you couldn’t othewise get off. Put water on them and wipe doors or walls to get fingerprints off with ease. Work smarter not harder. Luv ya friend.

    One more thing…. I’m kinda OCD when it comes to cleaning. I bought little inexpensive brush sets online that have little wire brushes and bristle brushes. I also just found them at the dollar store . These wire brushes and bristle brushes are life savers. They have multiple purposes for cracks and crevices or if you have a little boy who likes to put boogers on the wall. Kinda embarrassing to talk about but it happens and by the time you find them, they are hard as a rock. I made my son clean them himself with the brushes and cleaning product on two occasions (thank god he quit doing it). I use them on the stove, car (not metal brushes on car), floor, around the bathtub, walls, baseboards, etc. my stove is hard to clean when my teenagers spill on it. I spray it down. And uses brushes to get it spotless. <3

    1. Thank you Kelly, for all the wonderful tips….see you need to start girl!

  11. Thank you for this. I’ve been on a 7 week purge/ organize binge. My home feels so much better!

    1. Thank you for visiting!

  14. I totally cleaned out my fridge just the other day and it was so therapeutic! We’ve had most of our belongings in a storage unit for the last year while we live in temporary housing. Our goal for the next month or so is to see how much we can declutter in hopes that we can downsize our storage unit.

    1. Good luck Judith!
