First Zone!

Okay, the first zone we are going to tackle is the Living Room/Hall. Work for about twenty minutes a day. Depending on your house and your cleaning situation, it could take much longer than this to do everything on the list, but that's not the point. Just pick what needs to be done the most and work for 20 minutes a day. We'll be back to this zone later! I'm doing 5 days on deep cleaning this first week, and 5 days next week on decluttering.
