Spring is finally here! It is a time when most of us do our heavy cleaning, which includes organizing, decluttering, and making room for new things. Sometimes the idea of cleansing and getting rid of clutter can be completely overwhelming. Here are some ways to help make this year’s spring cleaning a little more easy and efficient:
–Before you start to clean, write down a list of main goals that you want to accomplish in your home, such as projects you want to finish, which rooms you want to focus on first, areas that need organizing and decluttering, or things that need to be cleaned.
–To help organize your efforts, jot down a list of specific chores that need to be done in each room. This list can also work as a motivator, because being able to mark tasks off when they are completed shows how closer you are to accomplishing your final goal.
–Plan to take a couple of days to complete all of the cleaning and organizing tasks that you have planned. Trying to complete all of the projects in one day or one weekend can be extremely overwhelming. Making a schedule of what you want accomplished and sticking to it can reduce stress.
–Getting organized and clearing away clutter are very common goals of spring cleaning. Learn to throw away items that have not been used in a long time, or donate clothes that do not fit . Getting rid of excess items can help limit clutter and make your home more organized, clean, and easier to maintain.
