One of the most popular activities that has become practically synonymous with spring is an annual spring cleaning. Many people take advantage of this tradition as motivation to conduct a deep cleaning and thorough organization of their home. Spring cleaning not only benefits your home but can actually provide some health benefits to you as well. No matter what specifically drives you to spring clean, you can get started with these tips below! They will help you maximize spring cleaning benefits and get your home in tip-top shape for the rest of the year.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed when faced with spring cleaning; after all, its purpose is for a deep, whole house clean, and that can be a lot of work! A great way to keep from feeling overwhelmed is to start by creating a schedule. List out the things you want to get done and schedule time for them. Whether your schedule is to get it all done in one day or spread it out over a weekend or week, writing it down will help keep you on track and motivated to check things off.
Spring cleaning isn’t just about cleaning and organizing what you have; it’s also about getting rid of items you don’t need anymore. Once you have created a schedule, it can be helpful to do an initial walk-through of your home and set aside obvious items you know you don’t want or need anymore. This doesn’t have to be a one-and-done thing, either. As you continue with your cleaning and organizing, designate a space to set aside junk items for later removal.
Commit to Your Decision
Along with feeling overwhelmed, it’s very easy to get lost in your spring cleaning and be tempted to keep things you don’t need. When making your schedule, you can list the types of things you want to keep and want to get rid of. As you clean, make sure you stick to this list and your predetermined decisions. We often want to keep things just in case, but chances are if you didn’t use it at all this last year, you aren’t going to this year- so say goodbye!
People often diminutize their spring cleaning into just organizing but don’t forget, by definition, spring cleaning is about cleaning. As you are working, make sure you are taking advantage of the newfound organization to deep clean. Work on things that don’t often get this thorough of a cleaning, like pantries, storage closets, fridges, etc.
Spring cleaning time is the perfect time to not only clean and organize but also to junk. If you don’t get rid of clutter and unwanted items, you’ll soon find yourself right back where you started.
