Ep. 59 - 3 Tips for Simple Spring Cleaning

It’s that time of year…spring always gives us the bug to clean and declutter, so in this episode I am going to give you 3 simple ways to tackle spring cleaning.  

1. Out with the old, in with the new!

We face the same challenge every season – rotating out the winter gear and making room for summer – or vice versa. One easy way to do this is to utilize a bin at the top of a closet to stash away sweaters, boots, and coats. This way these items are easy to access during a surprise cold snap – but are out of the way of everyday use. Use this technique in the other spaces such as the garage and front hall closet. Pack up those sleds and shovels to make room for gardening tools and pool toys. There is just something about stowing away the cold weather tools and supplies that makes it feel like spring has officially started.

2. Pick one small space to focus on.

We usually associate spring cleaning with cleaning every nook and cranny – but that’s a recipe for burnout! Instead, pick just one area of your home that’s really bugging you and focus all your energy there. It could be the windows, crowded kitchen cabinets, or maybe your entryway is driving you crazy. Whatever it is, declutter that space, give it a good deep clean, and bask in what a difference it makes! Then check spring cleaning off your list and go do something you’re REALLY excited about! 

3. Add some pretty seasonal decor touches.

One of my favorite spring cleaning tips is to grab a few new things for a little space in your home. A pretty new shower curtain, some bright throw pillows, or a vase of fresh-cut flowers can go a long way in making your home feel cheery and renewed for spring. Amazon has tons of affordable options if you need some inspiration!

My 3 tips in a nutshell – rotate out the old to reduce clutter, pick one space to really focus on, and add some pretty seasonal decor touches. Starting small with just those few actions can give you the jump start you need to enjoy your home this spring.
