It’s spring cleaning time! As the weather warms up it’s time to make your house as welcoming as the beautiful weather outside. If you’re ensure where to start we have a few tips to help organize your efforts.
Pick it up.
Start by putting away anything that’s left out. This will give you a good idea of what spaces need extra attention and which just need a quick dusting. As you put away clothes, toys or papers, is your closet overflowing? It may be time to review what needs to be kept and what can be donated or thrown away. Maybe as you put things away you notice a space that lacks organization. Make a list and make a plan to revisit these spaces later on.
Dust it all.
Take time to dust or wipe down every surface in your home—even the hard to reach spaces like tall window sills or behind the couch. You’ll probably discover dust that’s been collecting for months. Giving everything a good wipe down will help relieve allergies and give you a sense of accomplishment to keep the cleaning rolling on.
Deep clean your bedrooms.
You spend a lot of time in bed. Shouldn’t your bed be perfectly comfortable and clean? Comforters, bed skirts, shams and blankets should be cleaned at least quarterly. If it’s been a while, take all these items in for a good cleaning. Cleaning soft surfaces shouldn’t stop there. It’s a great time to clean your carpets too for total peace of mind.
Spend some time in the kitchen.
If your kitchen is anything like ours it’s packed full of areas that could use a good cleaning. Organize your Tupperware, clean expired food out of the pantry and deep clean the oven for starters.
Review your list.
Remember that list from step one? It’s time to go back. You may not have time to organize or declutter every space on your list but choose one get to work. Involve your family in deciding what needs to be reorganized or decluttered. Set a goal to do one area per week for the month of March and see how far you get.
