— DeCluttering & Cleaning Tips

  • make your intentions to please Allah
  • schedule time to clean; put it in your planner, calendar, or mobile device
  • spend 15 minutes at a time then take a break
  • use this Online-Stopwatch (click on Count Down) if you don’t have a kitchen timer
  • toss trash items into a plastic grocery store bag or trash bag

As you unclutter, sort items into: trash and “give away”. Toss trash into a plastic store bag or trash bag. Put “give away” items in a box or plastic bin. Label and find a handy place to keep it for now.
