Do you suffer from allergies? Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Do you suffer from allergies? Keeping my bedroom decluttered and dusted has helped my allergies. I use the FlyLady’s feather duster, and it grabs the dust when I am dusting. The boys take it outside for me and shake it out well. Then, I store it upright in a flower vase on a bookcase. This keeps dust mites and moths from eating it. If I stored my feather duster in a dark place, the mites and moths would eat it.

I always start high in any room when I am dusting, and I work my way down. When I am detail dusting in a Zone, I will move things around. I usually end up rearranging things to freshen up the look of things. In my bedroom, I also dust the exposed areas of my wooden bed.

Having a decluttered and well dusted bedroom helps me sleep better at night.

Have a wonderful day!
