First you will need to declutter - try 5 minutes a day; Your declutter list or plan will be unique to you as you only know what there is, how much of it there is, and where it is.
Then on to Organizing: Now that your shelves have been cleared of excess 'junk' - it's time to organize - keeping similar items in logical places;
Thirdly - you can Clean! Now that you've decluttered and sorted some initial items from your living room, it's time to clean. It might feel like quite a big job this time, but if you get in routine - this will also become easier.
Dream of Clean - Month 2, Week 7 in the Living Room
Sort through old books, movies and music. Anything you don't need, watch or listen to - sell or give away.
Especially check out your VHS collection; Do you still own a video player - No? Well - toss out those dust collectors as well.
Sort books and more; While you are sorting and decluttering your bookshelf - look at the final collection of those you intend to keep or re-organize those before they go back on your shelves.
or in whatever way seems to suit your home as well as your bookshelf options;
Separate DVDs and CDs It took me quite a few hours, but it was a good feeling once I had all my Cds and DVDs in the right cases;
Check out this warm, wooden Coffee Table in Espresso Finish with storage below - great place to leave a stack of "Coffee Table Books."
Dust with a warm, damp cloth. Okay, it is now time to dust everything in your living room really well.
Dust everything from knick knacks to shelves (before you put your books, CDs and DVDs back on). Once this becomes regular practice, it won't take long at all.
Use a warm, damp cloth to dust. Be sure to get things like baseboards (skirting boards), lamps and window sills.
I really like the Micro Fibre Cleaning Cloths to do dusting - both wet and dry.
