It’s that time again! Time to start spring cleaning! Getting organized after a long winter is so satisfying! There are two groups of people. There are the ones that like to clean and others that don’t. Some people have a hard time getting motivated. Here are 4 simple steps to get you motivated and get things done this spring!
Spring Cleaning Tips for people that don’t like to clean
Make a list– The first thing you should do is make a list of everything you need AND want to do. Make sure you stay on track doing items on your to-do list. Here’s a cute one I made that you can print out. You can see here the first thing that’s on my list this year! My garage! I am in desperate need of some organiziation.
PURGE!– Sometimes this can be so hard! My husband always tells me he’s going to “clean out” the garage and then I go out there he’s not cleaning out anything, just moving stuff around. I bought a couple of new things for the kitchen and I couldn’t find anywhere to store them in my cabinets. I got rid of a bunch of things that had been collecting dust since I got married, 15 years ago and it felt so good to have it gone. Why I had kept it all so long?
Buy needed items– This is the fun part! Do you need any new bins? Do you need a new mop or broom? I noticed my daughter had been using my inside broom outside, so I upgraded my indoor broom. I got a Libman’s Precision Angle Broom and it’s awesome.
Libman’s has a $3 off coupon right now!! WOOHOO! Click over and sign up for the newsletter to get it. They also have a Wonder Mop and Tornado Mop if you are looking to replace and upgrade yours. The newsletter signup is the top right-hand corner, very easy to find. I think I’ll pick up one of those when go back to Walmart this week. Maybe she’ll want to mop my floors too. 🙂
Space it out Don’t try to tackle all your spring cleaning in one weekend if you have enough for 3 weekends on your to-do list. You’ll burn out and won’t get to everything. Make sure you leave time for fun things and enjoy the nice spring weekends. Pick a couple of projects and get those done. It feels great to set a goal and meet it.
I almost forgot!
