February cleaning tasks

It's February and the chores for this month are: flip your mattresses and clean out your closets. The next time you change the sheets on your beds, flip the mattresses both lengthwise and widthwise. This allows your mattress to be worn more evenly than if you just flip it over widthwise. As for closets, start with the closet that is the most annoying to you. Limit the time you spend cleaning it and see if you can get it done by the deadline you've set. This way you won't feel like it will consume your life. Make sure you pitch/give away anything you're not using and store like items together. (To keep up with other periodic chores, see our Clever Cleaning mini-book.)
