Doing a clean sweep is a simple and efficient way to organize your things. A clean sweep means cleaning out a whole area such as a bookshelf or a refrigerator, and putting back only the things that are necessary.
I’ve experienced that a clean sweep is better than taking out a few things at a time. Better to see the empty space for what it is! It encourages me to really limit what I return. I’ve done this clean sweep for my dresser, my son’s closet and his toy shelves. All the pre-loved stuff that didn’t get returned will be donated.
A clean sweep applies not only to rooms or shelves, but to documents. It was time do a clean sweep with our family’s delivery menus folder because it’s a big mess!
