Bright, airy, living spaces aren’t exclusive to Pinterest boards and lifestyle blogs. Like most of you, I found motivation to refresh my space with warmer weather on the radar. Looking around my house at every misplaced item, dusty surface, and dirty article of clothing—I couldn’t help but dread the daunting task at hand.
Deciding this wouldn’t be a successful or enjoyable experience if I attempted to clean my entire house at once, I wrote out every task and created a master checklist for spring cleaning! Print it out and check off each completed task as you go (such a satisfying feeling!). Take on one room per day and you’ll have a clean house in two weekends!
Some tips on getting started…
#2 Tackle the kitchen and bathroom first! They’ll take a lot more energy than other rooms, so check those boxes off early.
#3 When decluttering, take items out of their usual places, put them in a pile, pick up each item one-by-one and ask yourself “Do I need this? Do I use this? Does this make me happy?” I’ve found physically handling each item makes me more selective in what I keep, leading to much less clutter to manage! I learned this tip from the KonMari tidying method. It was an instant life-changer, you can learn more here!
#4 Have fun with it! When your physical space is clean and tidy, your mental space will feel a lot clearer as well! Think of it as active meditating. 🙂
