Spring is the time for rebirth, renewal, and fresh beginnings, and it’s the perfect time for spring cleaning. If you’re overwhelmed by the prospect of tackling a major spring cleaning project, take a deep breath and read on. We’ve got a guide for decluttering your home. You’ll be surprised by how easy it is!
The best way to start decluttering your home is to start with one room. Don’t try to tackle all your rooms at once! Choose the space that you spend the most time in or the one that is most cluttered. Find some storage containers and put them near the entrance of the room. You’ll need these containers to hold items moved out of this room during decluttering.
Next, pick up each item in the room and decide if it should be tossed, donated, or kept. As you sort through things, think about whether they would be more useful somewhere else in your house.
Go through every room in your home, from the basement to the attic, and get rid of anything that doesn’t belong there. Put any items you plan to sell or donate in a box and set it aside for now.
First, sweep and mop the floors, and then vacuum the carpets. Second, apply a layer of wax polish to any wooden surfaces that need it. Third, wipe down all of your windows with vinegar and water.
Now it’s time to organize your clothes. Sort through all of them and get rid of anything that doesn’t fit or that you haven’t worn in the past year.
Tidy up your kitchen cabinets
If you have a busy kitchen with many items, it can be hard to find what you need. It’s time to go through your cabinets and throw out all the expired food, the containers with missing lids, and any extra kitchenware you no longer use.
Take a look at your spices. If they’re old or clumped together, it’s time for a new container or a fresh batch. You can also take this opportunity to clean out your fridge and freezer. Toss anything that has gone bad or has been there for more than three months.
Garages and basements tend to be neglected storage spaces that often contain old furniture or boxes of unused items. If an item has been sitting in the same place for over six months and hasn’t been touched since then, it’s time to consider donating or throwing it away. You could also consider selling any items that may be worth something, like vintage books or jewelry.
