Spring cleaning is something most of us lack motivation for; but, once it’s done, it feels incredible. A clean house is a happy house! It benefits the entire household when we rid our homes of dust, clutter, and unused junk and replace gross or expired items. It’s a great idea to plan ahead and save your spring cleaning for a day when you have some time on your hands, that way you can knock your projects out all at once.
To get yourself motivated, try turning on a fun playlist and having all of your supplies out and ready to go. Organization and preparation are key. Speaking of which, here’s a free, downloadable checklist template to help equip you for an efficient day of spring cleaning!
This season is a great time to toss out clothing and shoes, furniture, rugs, expired food and medication, and the rest of your old “junk”. Give your home what it needs and reap the reward of waking up in your clutter-free space! An easy way to start this particular project is to get out one large trash bag for each household member. Go into each member’s bedroom, load the bags up with unwanted items, and place them in a pile to donate. Here are examples of some local shelters and thrift stores that accept donations and may even pick up the donations from your home!
