Tis the season for spring cleaning! The spring season is almost like a fresh start. New flowers are blooming, people start spending more time outdoors, and after spending all winter cooped up in our homes — they’re overdue for a good deep clean! While we’re at it, now’s a good time to get organized.
While some people love the feeling of a good spring cleaning, for others it can be overwhelming. They don’t know where to start! Don’t fret, we’re here to help. For those who are looking for some tips and tricks when it comes to spring cleaning and home organization, start with these 10 steps…
Devise a Plan
No matter how big or small your house is, the task of spring cleaning can be overwhelming. When the whole house needs to be not just cleaned, but deep cleaned — where do we even start? To help deter away any feelings of anxiety or stress, take some time to sit down and create a plan. This is especially important for parents who have little kids running around and not exactly a lot of time to waste.
You don’t have to get all of your cleaning done in one day. While that’s probably preferable, for someone with a large home or family, that’s not exactly practical. You can tackle it one room at a time. Spend one day doing the living room, and the next day doing the kitchen. This way you can properly focus on each room and you’re not rushing through the process. You could also decide to do dusting one day, and then vacuum the next. Devise a plan that makes the task more manageable.
