Are You Ready for Spring Cleaning?
It's that time of year! Do you find yourself not knowing where to begin when it’s time to Spring Clean your home? You're not alone. A lot of people never begin because they don’t know where to start.
To keep from getting bored or overwhelmed, try tackling a few quick projects each day to keep you motivated.
First: Grab a few boxes and label them: (See below)
Anything you want to donate or consign goes into this box. If the items will not fit in a box, just keep a running list.
While decluttering and cleaning, you will most likely come across items that need mending or repaired. Place these items in this box until you’re ready to work on them.
If you’re cleaning out a drawer in your kitchen and you find a pair of earrings in it, do not stop decluttering that drawer to go put your earrings away. Resist the urge! Continue working on the drawer and put the earrings in your "Put Away" box. Once you are finished with the drawer, take that box and return everything in it to it's rightful storage place.
