The home of your dreams is just a week away.
Are you like me and always wanting the “Get the house in tip-top shape in the quickest way possible.”
Short of snapping my fingers wishing for the Clear-the-Clutter-Fairy to do it then I actually have to do the work.
In this books she lays out the Game Plan for you to share with your Team.
Section One is putting the plan in to play while Section Two is about keeping that plan going after all of the hard work is done.
In the introduction there is a Maintenance Quiz where you rate your ability to maintain your house.
The author outlines each day, Monday through Friday, what areas to work on, so by Saturday all you have are boxes to go through, which she outlines in Section Two.
This is a different attempt at cleaning than I have ever done. I usually tackle one room then the boxes sit for months. Or I de-clutter as I go and the room never gets put back together.
To avoid an foreseeable problems, there are even guidelines for the Owner and the Team Members on how to show appreciation for their help and how to respect each other. For some homes, I could see how this could be a monumental task. IE Hoarders.
While I feel I have ‘hotspots’ ie: the spot by the phone that breeds papers or that basket by my chair where I keep my current reads, I don’t feel my house is cluttered enough for this style of de-cluttering. Not to mention that to have my family give up a whole week…not going to happen. I think maybe a weekend would suffice.
I think, in theory, this is a great way to really get your house ready for the cover of Family Circle. The house that doesn’t have kids in it maybe.
I give this book 3 of 5 stars
I received this book free for my unbiased review.
