There are few people who truly LOVE to get started on their spring cleaning projects, but here are a few ways we’ve found to make getting started just a little bit easier:
Reduce and Declutter
Ever notice how we tend to accumulate more and more “stuff” as we hunker down during the cold winter months? One of our favorite ways to kick start your spring cleaning is to gather and get rid of items that are collecting dust and are no longer being used. There are numerous ways to up-cycle your gently used items locally (think Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc.) but you can also explore selling items of greater value on Facebook marketplace, Craigslist, or Poshmark (for nicer clothing, shoe and accessory items). You may even be able to sell enough items to create a little cash fund for vacations, entertainment, and more this spring and summer!
Make a Cleaning List
That first deep clean of the season can feel daunting, especially when you’re not sure where to begin. We suggest getting out some pen and paper and making a list. Cleaning can feel much more satisfying when you’re able to cross each item off as you accomplish them and watch your to-do list shrink as you go. Still not sure what to add to your list? We love this list from Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia website!
What is a long to-do list without a reward at the finish line? We suggest coming up with a way to reward yourself at the end of your spring cleaning to keep yourself motivated and on task. Maybe your reward is splurging on some beautiful floral arrangements to sprinkle throughout the house? Or maybe it’s declaring an official “day of rest” where you don’t have to worry about any more to-do’s—read a book, enjoy the outdoors, etc. Whatever it is, make sure it’s relaxed and enjoyable!
