Dust and allergies and asthma

This is one side of my tv cabinet, there are three sections. Each of the bottom sections has boxes to contain clutter. One of the problems when you have asthma and allergies is dust. And dust is everywhere, making us sneeze and wheeze. I have cd's stored in all of my boxes, sorted by type of music of course. I like using boxes to hold all of our cd's because the lid on top keeps the dust out.

Of course most people now just download songs onto their electronic devices to listen. But we actually have and use cd's.....

This time of year seems to be the time that magazines and websites talk about organizing your life. I guess it's all part of the whole "let's make a New Year's Resolution" thing. Some people want to lose weight, some people want to eat healthier, others want to organize their house. Some people are good at organizing, but even if you're not, there are simple things you can do to reduce clutter and dust in your home.

  • Reduce clutter! (Yes, you can donate things and other people can use them!)

  • Use containers to hold your clutter

  • Dust using a damp cloth

And don't even think of shoving everything under the bed. One of the worst places for dust is under the bed. It seems like the only time you see how bad it is under there is if you are moving, because you have to pull the bed out. Asthma Doc tells us not to having anything under the bed. No soccer balls, old pieces of pizza, dirty laundry or old book reports.

Make sure to vacuum under your bed every week, along with the rest of the house.

So, just a few random ideas from inside my head. Hope this helps with allergies and asthma.
