5 Spring Cleaning and Organizing Tips

Here are 5 tips to help you start the spring season off right by making cleaning easier and organizing faster.

1. Make yourself a schedule with a different task for each day
Be sure to include:

  • De-cluttering
  • Dusting
  • Vacuuming
  • Scrubbing
  • Organizing and Rearranging
  • Laundering
  • Decorating

Then, each day do your assigned task for each room, throughout your house. You'll be shocked at the improvements you can make in your home by following these steps. And at how quickly they can be done!

2. Get organized
Post your schedule where you can see it. Get your tools for the day’s assigned task organized. Make a checklist. Be sure to take all of your tools with you from room to room to eliminate extra time and trips. Finally, make sure you have all of the right tools.

3. Unclutter
If you don't use it, you don’t need it. It's clutter. If you have items that you don't use, gather all of these items together as you’re cleaning and at the end of the week decide whether you would prefer to donate them or sell them.

If you prefer to donate, try a local church or Salvation Army.

If you prefer to sell, then schedule a yard sale and pay your self for the week’s hard work!

4. Reorganize the insides too
It feels good to clean and organize things that are in sight all of the time. But, what about those items that are out of sight?

Don’t forget to organize your closets, cabinets, drawers, bins, boxes, pantry and other inside storage areas.

5. Make it fun
Blast the music through the house and dance your way through it. Make it a game or an exercise.
