Two Lessons I Have Learned on Cleaning and Organizing (from Preparing to Sell My Home) – Young Wife’s Guide

Young Wife’s Guide 

I’m not the queen of cleaning, and organizing has never been a natural habit of mine. However, I appreciate a clean and organized space so I have had to become more disciplined in this area. I have needed to develop these habits even more now that my husband and I have our home up for sale.

I’m amazed at how clean my home can be when it’s ready to show for an open house or private tour. It’s through this process that I realized how possible it really is for me to have a clean and organized home.

About a year ago my husband and I began the adventure of getting our home ready to sell. It has honestly been the most exhausting and stressfulyear of our lives but I have learned a few lessons along the way. It is my hope that I can pass along a some of those lessons to you, whether you are going through a similar process of preparing to sell and move to a new home or you just want some inspiration to do some spring cleaning.

My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
