52 Week challenge week 33: Living Room (common area)


Time to straighten up the living room, or a common room(s). As we get close to the month of Elul, we’ll spend a lot of time in these rooms shortly. Cleaning them up is a boost for the whole house!

These rooms tend to gather things in my house – toys from someone who took them from our playroom, books that someone finished, something on its way to somewhere else, etc. We also need to weed the bookcases regularly and clean the glass on the windows, move the rug to clean the floor, etc…

  • Decluttering: now is the time to put all of the things that migrated into the living room back to their homes
  • Bookcases: Are all of the books that are taking up space in your house wanted? Are they in good shape and worth keeping?
  • Magazines: Are they organized and accessible when you want them?
  • Cleaning: spot clean and deep clean as necessary!

Keep up the hard work!
