The flowers are blooming, the birds are serenading, and our house still feels like it's stuck with winter blues. Spring cleaning is a tradition that allows us to freshen up our homes and get a head start on the hectic seasons of spring and summer.
A real Spring Clean throughout your home can brighten every day, So bring a little more light into your house by doing it!
Clearing Clutter and Organizing During Spring Cleaning
One of the biggest parts of spring cleaning is getting rid of clutter that you don't need. Use these resources to clear out your stuff. Plan a garage sale. Learn how to box up items you don't need. Find out how to donate items that are taking up space. Take advantage of the natural urge that comes each spring to get rid of items that are weighing you down and begin fresh with a more streamlined lifestyle. While we may have a tendency to hoard and hold on to items in the winter, we generally are more ready to let go of clutter when spring arrives.
Getting the Family Involved in Spring Cleaning
If you need a little help in your cleaning endeavors, try to get your family involved. Even the most unwilling helper can make a big difference in the workload.
I know what you are thinking. It might actually seem easier to just do everything by yourself rather than try to get your family to help. Don't worry, we've got advice to deal with even those most reluctant helpers. This is actually a great time of year to get the entire family to work together. Try throwing on some music or establishing a family reward for when the work is done.
