Spring has FINALLY sprung, and it’s time to open the windows, plant some flowers and clean out the closet. While spring is a wonderful time of year, the dreaded task of spring cleaning can often take away from the enjoyment of these treasured months. But have no fear! We’re here to help you tackle the tasks of spring cleaning with a few simple tips.
First and foremost, it’s important to tackle one task at a time. We can easily get overwhelmed or distracted by different chores and have trouble finishing the job at hand, but putting together an order of tasks can help accomplish the big picture. Whether you plan to focus on one job at a time every week, or hammer out a day chalk full of spring cleaning fun, putting your tasks into order will help you stay on track and complete the project. It can also be helpful to start with jobs you dislike the most and finish up with jobs you see more fun. This way when you’re tired and ready to pour a glass of reward wine, you won’t dread finishing up the final projects before calling it quits.
A great way to divide up your projects is to download a cleaning app such as HomeRoutines. (1) This app, and others like it, will help you keep track of what days or times you should be cleaning what. Separating your house into zones will keep each project focused and organized. Other apps such as Today, can help you organize your to-do cleaning list and move through each project as it is completed.
And spring cleaning doesn’t need to just be focused on your living space and personal possessions. Spring “cleaning” other areas of your life, such as your finances, can help take weight off your shoulders and make you feel like a new person in the new season. Spring is a great time to reevaluate your budget. Whether it’s incorporating a tax refund or accounting for wedding season, cleaning up your plan for spending in the upcoming months can’t hurt.
From your bathroom to your bank account, the spring season is a great time to clean up your act. Although it’s often daunting, it can make you feel accomplished and help you to start the season with a clean slate. These few tips will help you turn over a new leaf as the new season gets underway.
