Spring Cleaning: Don’t Procrastinate, Start Now

Spring is in the air! Well, not quite but with under a month away why not start thinking about ways you can efficiently declutter and organize your home. For many of us, spring comes and goes; before we know it, summer is here and we have yet to start our Spring cleaning. Cleaning is never the highlight of our day, but this spring why not put your mind at ease? A decluttered home is a decluttered mind after all.

Don’t procrastinate, start now with these great tips:

Declutter

Buying new things is a walk in the park; it’s getting rid of items you don’t need that can be challenging. Instead of tossing items that are in good shape, consider giving them to a family member or friend, have a garage sale, or advertise on sites such as Kijiji or Craigslist. Another great way to declutter is by storing your winter items and sports equipment in containers to free up some space.

Essential Supplies For Cleaning

  • Rubber gloves
  • Cloths
  • Vacuum
  • Mop
  • All-purpose cleaner
  • Bathroom cleaner
  • Dusters

Make A List

Start by making a list of what needs to be cleaned in each room. Put the “forgotten spaces”, the areas we purposely forget about or avoid because they are the worst to clean, at the top of your list. This way you can tackle them first and don’t have time to make excuses to avoid them. These spaces may include under your stove or fridge, dusting your ceiling fans and blinds, and the inside of your microwave.

Clean Room by Room

Cleaning can be overwhelming, so it’s important to focus on one room at a time. Don’t move onto the next room until your done the one you’re working on. This will ensure jobs aren’t left unfinished, and it will feel great being able to check each room off your list!

Reward Yourself!

The most important tip of all, Reward Yourself! After all that hard work you deserve to order in some take out, grab a drink and chill out with Netflix.
