#1 - EVERY DAY before you go to bed, go around your house and put away all the accumulated clutter.
#2 - Pick three days a week to complete a room full of tasks from your new weekly checklist.
#3 - Make your bed every day when you get up.
Sounds easy enough, right? And if you already do it, great! You are ahead of the game! but if you don't, don't worry it's very easy. And your mom was right - it's needed. If you start your day and end your day on a clean and organized note you are much more likely to be more clean and organized all day! So if it's one little thing you can do; do it!
