It’s the most wonderful time of the year! As spring approaches, you are probably itching to declutter, reorganize or maybe even remodel your home. Here are some of our top spring-cleaning tips to help your house feel like home again!
Start with a Plan
The most efficient way to make it through your entire house while staying sane is to make a schedule or checklist to follow as you go. Our favorite way to organize a cleaning plan is to go by room. This strategy is great because you can create a to-do list for tasks specific to each room, for example mop the floor in the kitchen vs. vacuum the rug in the living room.
Creating a plan also helps you set goals for each day – for example you can aim to clean 2 rooms per day to space out cleaning throughout the week. You can also set fun challenges for your family by seeing who can clean the most rooms in one day! That’s a win-win for you – entertain your children while getting more cleaning done.
De-Clutter by Category
Looking at all the things you have accumulated in the past year can feel overwhelming. One of our favorite tactics to help sort through everything is to separate things into four categories: trash, give away, store, or put away. Before you throw everything in the trash, assess the condition of each item to see if anyone else could use it.
For example, clothes that don’t fit anymore can simply become hand-me-downs within your family and friends, or they can be donated. Sentimental items that you do not regularly use but want to keep can go in a storage bin in your attic, basement, garage or storage unit. Only throw away items that are too worn or damaged to be used again.
Keep it Thorough
Open up your windows and get ready for some heavy-duty cleaning! The bigger tasks can feel like a nuisance, but they need to be done every few months or so. Some of these tasks include emptying and wiping down your fridge, sweeping under your appliances and furniture, washing your windows and blinds, flipping your mattress and washing your pillows.
Once these tasks are done and you complete your usual cleaning chores, your home will look spotless!
