31 Days to an Organized and Clean Haven
You've heard of the 30 Detox Diet for your body, now here is one that is not only for your health but it is also for your home. Home Organization 31 Day Detox Diet Challenge! Purge your home of unnecessary clutter and organize it with these useful tips. You will find a 31 day plan of methods you can use to get the home you want and deserve!
Making a home your 'haven' to come home to every night is extremely important. Clutter and chaos can have a profound effect on your body's stress levels and your personal health. Following the instructions in this post as a jumping off point can help remedy your need for peace in your home. Creating a calm and serene environment is important for health reasons but also for the growth and development of your family...young and less young (I didn't want to say old). Hahaha:)

Having your children grow up in a home that is streamlined, organized, and peaceful can greatly benefit their emotional well being, stress resistance, problem solving, and overall character development. Of course the same benefits are there for adults as well, but I do it all for the children!
Tear....they grow up so fast.
