Benefits of Spring Cleaning
Spring has sprung officially and that means lots of things! Fresh air, flowers, more allergies and even Spring cleaning. I know it isn’t our favorite thing to do during spring, but the hard work pays off because completing it gives you a sense of accomplishment! As well as added benefits of Spring Cleaning which usually helps cut clutter, gives you a sense of pride and so much more here are a few Benefits of Spring Cleaning and an easy 30 Day Decluttering Challenge to help you get it all accomplished.
Spring cleaning is something that should be done by everyone regardless of their living space because we all know how many germs are on things. First things first, when Spring hits is throwing up the windows and enjoying the fresh breeze. It gets fresher air inside your house and you already feel better about the state of your home!
Cutting the clutter and messy environment is a great way to help your home become happier. When we do spring cleaning we work on one room at a time and have a simple policy in place. We have three containers: Keep, Toss, Giveaway. If we haven’t used it in 6 months it is quickly thrown into the giveaway bin, if it is in the wrong room it goes into the keep box and if it is trash or something we no longer need or want it goes into the trash box. This method helps you cut down the clutter and keep organized while you are doing it. By cutting through clutter you are keeping your home space tidier and giving yourself the gift of organization! Don’t worry Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will a perfect house be, but you are well on your way when you do the first room!
Getting your house clean helps you feel more peaceful and of course gets rid of unnecessary stress. But it also gives you a sense of pride because it is a way to show off your hard work! Having someone stop by will no longer be an embarrassment and you will be glad to be able to relax with them! Spring Cleaning is also a great way to save some time. Because now that everything has a spot and is organized, you will be able to find everything you need. Your home will be more orderly, daily chores will be a snap and you will be able to have more time to relax at your fingertips!
