A Fresh Look at Spring Cleaning
Flowers are sprouting up, the weather is warming up, and springtime is here! And with this season comes Spring Cleaning. If you do not normally participate in this annual ritual, now could be the perfect year to start! Spring Cleaning is not just about cleansing your living space, but un-cluttering your life. Hopefully with some of the tips below, you will find Spring Cleaning to be an extremely positive experience.
Sort Out Your Closet: Look through everything in your closet and locate anything you have not worn in over two years. The same goes for pieces that do not fit or are damaged beyond repair. Donate these items! Even though you are no longer able to wear an outfit, it does not mean that someone else will not appreciate your pair of shabby boots or sweater from three seasons ago. Charitable organizations, like the Salvation Army, will pick up your donation for you! Then, take out and store all of your winter garments. Once you only have items that you use in your closet, it will make your life much less complicatedwhen it comes to daily wardrobe selection.
Create Order: Before you can get in to any actual cleaning, it is imperative that you locate and organize any random items that are strewn around your home. You can purchase pieces that will make organizing your home more fun from stores like The Container Store or Target. Once everything has its own place, it will make the rest of the cleaning process go much more smoothly.
The Nitty-Gritty: When it comes to the actual physical cleaning, each person has his or her own way to do things. Take the time to scrub, dust, and vacuum, using whatever method you prefer. Whether you do it yourself or hire somebody else to do it for you (like UrbanMaidGreen), make sure your place is neat and orderly. Once you have taken some time to clean all the rooms in your home, your space will be much more pleasant to be in. Set aside some specific time each week to organize and cleanse your apartment or house. If you stick to this, then by the time next spring rolls around, you will not have as much to do!
Rejuvenate Yourself: Now that your abode is spotless, it is time to make sure that you have taken some time to tidy up your life. Just as everyone has a distinctive technique of organizing and cleaning their space, each individual will have a unique way to recharge. This may be a day at a spa, some time outdoors, or meditation. Whatever it is, take the time to do something for yourself so you will be ready for spring and summer!
