Does anyone else have that deep connection with their living space that if it is cluttered, their mind is cluttered? I definitely do. My rule within our home is that I like to keep it “10 minutes from guest ready” which I definitely borrowed from Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere. Because if my space is cluttered more than, say, a load of laundry waiting to be put away or some dog toys on the rug, my focus completely disappears.
This weekend, we spent probably more time than necessary scrubbing everything. Cleaning up the clutter and scouring what’s underneath. And let me tell you, it felt so good. Waking up Monday morning to feeling mentally clean as well as having a clean space is probably the best way to Monday.
