The Spring-cleaning craze has begun. If the bug has not hit you yet, it will soon. At the beginning of a house overhaul, there is so much excitement. But, as the project lingers is when people start to drop like flies and give up on the idea. There is so much advice to help you achieve all your spring cleaning dreams. You just need to find the right one for your strengths. Take a look at what some of those that are successful each spring feel is the key to their success.
It is easy to see all that needs to be cleaned and organized. What is more challenging is figuring out how to go about it. It is easy to get distracted by other tasks when they catch your eye when working. Falling for it leads to leaving one job half done for another. Imagine how crazy your home will look and feel if jobs are left half done all over your home. To spring clean like a pro, stay on one project or area of the house until it is complete before moving to the next. This will help you see the accomplishments and help keep you motivated as well. Then, move strategically around the space until everything has been given a spruce.
Not everyone is good at spotting clutter and dirt. If you are one of those that just don’t understand where to start, there are many guides for you. Molly Maid has a spring cleaning checklist that will have you busy for days. Many others are just a click away if it does not fit your home layout. You may also want to add in the garage or outdoor areas as well. Once you get the hang of it, you will be ready for each spring and what needs to be done. It is hard to unsee the clutter and dirt once your attention is brought to it. Just refrain from pointing it out when in the homes of your family and friends. You want to be invited back.
Spring cleaning is not just about things being cleaned. Hopefully, you already have a good rotation of cleaning. It is also about getting rid of stuff you do not need anymore. Take the time to go through your items, all of them, and decide if they are something you still need. There are many methods for this as well. Try reading Marie Kondos book if you are trying to be serious and do a big decluttering. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up is her book, and it will have your home unrecognizable but hopefully only filled with things that bring you joy. Those not ready for a complete overhaul should start with the level they are prepared for.
