Whether you are looking to spruce things up and get rid of things you no longer need, or you’re looking to sell your house this spring, we have some spring cleaning tips to reduce clutter. Keeping your house beautiful and spruced up involves looking into the smallest details and cleaning out the tiniest nooks and crannies. With a few simple tricks, you can take the stress out of spring cleaning and turn it into a hassle-free—and dare we add, fun—spring ritual.
- Planning is key
Instead of stressing yourself out thinking about the amount of workload before you, sit back and make a plan. Take stock of your entire house and make a list of areas that need immediate cleaning, areas you can clean up later, and those you can delay until next spring without feeling guilt. Jotting down things on a piece of paper will give you a better idea of just what needs to be done, which will help you plan better.
- Set the right environment
Spring cleaning doesn’t have to be treated like an annoying chore. Take it as a fun home improvement strategy that will leave your house looking neat, clean and smart. The tasks will be far easier to undertake—and finish—if you go about them with optimism and cheerfulness. Put some of your favorite tunes. This will perk-up your mood as you work.
- Streamline the wardrobes
It’s smart to start with your wardrobes. With springtime in full bloom, you don’t need your winter gear anymore. It’s time to put thick sweaters and woollen jackets away and take out the shirts and dresses. But before you do, assess your apparel collection and donate any clothing item you either don’t need anymore or haven’t worn more than a couple of times. Donating to charity isn’t just a great feeling; it’ll also help you get rid of piles of unwanted clothing.
- Small spaces are critical
You probably don’t know this, but it’s the small spaces that hold the most clutter, like those medicine cabinets or desk drawers where we tend to stash stuff and forget about it later. Many of these spaces are crammed with all kinds of clutter you don’t need, like used pens, empty inkpots, expired medicines, or old batteries. All these items simply take up unnecessary space, so you don’t need to feel bad about throwing the entire lot away. It’ll certainly make you feel lighter once you’ve discarded all the junk.
- Discard the paperwork
Give it a few days, and you’ll see your drawers and desks literally stacked up with bills, receipts, and papers dating back to who knows when. Paperwork has a habit of piling up extremely fast so, this spring, invest time in a proper filing system. Get some large files or ring binders, and file all your papers neatly inside them. This is an instant decluttering solution, and it will also keep any important receipts or bills from getting lost.
