Down and Dirty with Spring Cleaning

Spring is officially here! The flowers are blooming, birds chirping and your house might still be a little out of control from the Christmas and New Year’s Eve party you haven’t recovered from yet.

The twentieth of March marks the official beginning of spring and is also a great time to clean out your house and get organized.

Here are some tips on getting your house in shape for the rest of the year:

  • Throw away trash! I know this seems simple, but some jobs look extremely daunting at first. Getting rid of the trash makes a job a lot easier.
  • 1-year-rule: If you haven’t used something in a year, it’s not worth keeping. Donate or toss it in the trash.
  • Sort your clothes that you haven’t worn in years or that are tattered.
  • Don’t keep broken or in projects in need of repair. If you haven’t fixed them by now, it’s highly unlikely you’ll be getting around to it anytime soon.

For a really messy room, take everything out and start fresh. Bring in organization tools for the closets and such to help get the job done.

Spring cleaning is also great for putting away all those winter decorations and clothes and putting out the fun spring and summer items.

Get out and enjoy the beautiful weather! Beaches, biking, hiking and picnics are fun and inexpensive activities to enjoy the outdoors. Have fun!
