Hello and welcome back to your Declutter Fast Newsletter

Today, go outside your front door and take a look at the entryway.

The first order of business is to remove (if needed) anything that clutters up the entryway.

Generally speaking, the only things that should be in the entryway are:

β€’ Potted plants

β€’ A welcome mat

β€’ And perhaps one other decorative item.

Less is more.

Chances are, the entryway needs to be cleaned.

The first order of business is to sweep the area with a broom.

Take the broom and look at the ceiling area and sweep the corners, too, to prevent or remove cobwebs.

Sweep down the exterior to minimize dirt or dust on the exterior.

Sweep down the doorway, including the topmost upper edge where dust can accumulate.

After you have removed excess dirt, get a wet rag and wring it out somewhat, and then spray Windex or some other cleaner on the rag.

Use that rag to clean the door and the door frame.

Don't forget to clean the doorknob well, too, to cut down on germs from many hands!

While you're at it, clean your mailbox too.

Do you like the way your front area looks?

Plants make any area improved.... what I do lately is to combine real plants with fake plants.

I get the fake plants at places like Hobby Lobby. They are NOT cheap, but they do last a long time.

Then I try to remember to water the real plant regularly - every week, or twice a week, as appropriate.

If you really want to cheer things up, plant some flowers. It's cheap, quick, and inspiring!
