May Homeowner Checklist

May 4, 2022

Once spring comes, we feel the urge to tear apart the house room by room and purge. Since we have been in our home for a few years now, we haven't had the opportunity to go through the house like we would when we move. Quarantine and the basic additions we have accumulated over the years have completely overwhelmed us. We don't need 8 sets of sheets and toys our daughter no longer plays with. 

Our goal for the month of May is to go room by room and set a timer for 10 min and get whatever we can done in that amount of time. 

Each item we pick up goes into one of the following three categories, keep/find a new "home," donate or throw away. There are many locations outside of Goodwill to donate items to.
