A.k.a: "The Mt. Vernon method"
An old strategy for cleaning and decluttering...the Mount Vernon Method. Originating from the Washington Estate: Mt. Vernon
The Mount Vernon Approach was used at George Washington's estate, the method involves a one-room-at-a-time approach, starting at the door and moving clockwise around the room, cleaning and organizing one piece of furniture before moving on to the next. The advantage of this method is pacing yourself, and having clear goals that can be accomplished one by one.

n. "I learned to use the Mt. Vernon approach from my mother." --E.M.

v. "Just Mt. Vernon it."
