SPRING CLEANING AND ORGANIZATION TASKS THAT ONLY TAKE 15 MINUTES (OR LESS)

Do you fall prey to the myth that you can only get organized if you could block off huge chunks of time to do it? Do you wait and wait for a hole in your schedule to miraculously open up so you can tackle your cleaning and organization projects?

If you’re like the rest of us, that opening in your schedule probably hasn’t happened yet. Life is busy! Fortunately, there is a better (and more effective way) to organize your space than using a huge span of time to do it.

You can make the most of short periods of time in your day to become more productive. Below are some ways you can use those little margins of time to declutter and organize different parts of your home.
