Guest Post: Spring Clean Your Clutter Away

The time has come! No more telling yourself that you’ll clean the house tomorrow only to find that “tomorrow” never comes. Relax. Spring cleaning doesn’t have to be done all at once. By focusing on time management, cleaning in intervals and a positive attitude, you can get the job done. Follow these four simple steps to organizing your living space:

Spring Cleaning Just Ahead Green Road Sign and Clouds

  1. Set a realistic goal of when you would like to finish your spring cleaning. Whether your goal is a week or a month away, you’ll feel less pressured if you clean in stages.
  2. Go around your house and gather all the items you haven’t used or worn in more than a year.
  3. Make a checklist of specific tasks to complete during your spring cleaning. Grab your cleaning products and tools, turn on some music, start cleaning and have fun!
  4. Donate to Goodwill those items you’re no longer using.  Donating will not only declutter your house, but it will also help the community by supporting Goodwill’s mission of Changing Lives Through the Power of Work.  Happy Spring Cleaning!
