Springtime is on a fast track. After the long nights of the dark winter season, springtime has finally arrived. Every homeowner is ready to kick in the springtime cleaning routine. It comes to fix your cleaning tool in handy. It’s high time to decide what household stuff is to use and to ditch. Let’s get rid all the house dirt and dust that have piled up over the lazy and cold season.
1. One room at a time. Take it all easy by starting on the smaller room first. Apply this simple introspective that when something comes in, other will goes out. So, start it right at your smallest room. It is important to be systematic and get things done. Once you’ve started the cleaning groove you will get accustomed on how things work.
2. Get Organized. Sort out your things most especially your closet. Choose which of your clothes need to stay or and which one is for donation. To help you decide, ask yourself these questions:
- How much use will I get for this thing? If it is not useful, get rid of it.
- Is it worth fixing? It is important to know when to fix a thing and when to buy a new one. If fixing it cost more than its original price, you better buy a new one.
- How much will this mean to me in the next year? We can’t help it but horde on some items even if we don’t need them. If you don’t know what to do for your unused stuff, keep it in the storage or donate them to the charity.
3. Organize your seasonal apparel. Springtime is warmer than the winter. Store your winter clothes in a separate space. You may also those that you didn’t want to wear anymore. Give it away or trade it and do it.
4. Less paper (as possible). Paper can create a huge mass of clutter at home. Without a regular organization of these things, it can pile up over time. Streamline the pile of paper in your desk. Remember that piles are your biggest foe. For the must-keep paper, organize them and pile it neat.
If you haven’t done your annual spring cleaning, allocate 2-4 hours this weekend before it becomes impossible to manage the clutter in your space.
