When's the last time you dusted your home? Like, really dusted? Behind the books? Around all the knickknacks? On all the surfaces? Not only is this home cleaning task important for making your home healthier, it can have a big mental impact: The act of dusting can be like clearing out mental cobwebs as well as give you a home that feels cleaner when you're done.

This Weekend's Assignment:

Dust the main living areas of your home really well

If you're anything like me, even on my most motivated cleaning days I tend to really slack when it comes to dusting. It can be tedious to move everything to get a thorough dusting done and it can sometimes feel like the dust reappears as soon as I turn my back! But there's no denying it: My home just feels better after a good dusting.

This weekend, spend a few moments catching up on the best ways to dust (some of the links below might help); if you're going to spend time dusting this weekend, might as well do it as effectively as possible, right? Then focus on your main living areas, one important room (like your bedroom perhaps) or try and dust everything! Lastly, check out the links below for some tips that will help make it less necessary to dust your house as often (because you're keeping more of it out!).

Remember, as with all of our Weekend Projects, just do what you have the time and energy to do!
