It’s the best time of the year! It’s officially spring. That may mean a lot of different things to you depending on where you live. But there is one thing that is universal when it comes to springtime. It’s time for spring cleaning… whether you like it or not.
While it can totally be a pain in the you-know-what, spring cleaning is a great way to upgrade your home. No, really! That’s because clutter can totally negatively impact your quality of life. And when it comes time to sell your home, it can be a huge inconvenience. The truth is, people won’t buy a house that looks too cluttered. But don’t wait until you’re ready to sell. Let the stuff go now, so you can enjoy being in your space.
Here are 3 simple spring cleaning tips that will help:
- Keep giveaway bags around at all times– Keeping giveaway bags handy is a great way to make sure you’re always thinking about what you be recycled. If you see them every day, you’re more likely to be always assessing what can stay and what can go, meaning your home will always feel a little lighter.
- Do a morning sweep of the high-traffic areas — Some rooms in our home just breed messes. The kitchen and the living room are two good examples. While you definitely won’t have time for a huge clean every day, spending 10 to 15 minutes wipe down counters and putting items back where they belong can make a big difference in how clean your home feels.
- Schedule a time once a week for a more strenuous clean– If you’re a busy person, you should actually schedule time to clean at least one a week. Otherwise, you just won’t make the time for it! Your more strenuous clean will involve things like shaking out rugs, vacuuming every room, and giving the bathroom a good scrub. When you’re keeping up with the smaller jobs during the week, you’ll find that your bigger clean won’t even take all day.
