When it comes to spring cleaning the main purpose is de-cluttering in order to make space and feel like you are living in a clean and organized home. This activity is normally done once a year and it is devoted for you to take everything out that you don’t need and that you’ve been wanting to get rid of. For some people, this activity is very tedious and they don’t know how to get started or what to get rid of.
This activity is especially complicated for Hoarders, people who like to keep everything and they don’t get rid of stuff. The main purpose of spring cleaning is to get a rid of everything that you don’t need in your home, either to make new space for new things or to simply have more room for the ones you already have.
And although the thought of cleaning sounds frustrating, there are tons of things you can do to make it less tedious.
1. Make Schedule
If you are thinking about starting spring cleaning, the best thing you can do is make a schedule. It is important to have a plan in order to not delay the tedious activity, not only is the schedule effective for getting started, but you can also set a time limit to know when to end, and also, in order to make every room. In the schedule you can establish different days for different rooms, make it work in the best way that you can buy to remind yourself to be organized by making a plan.
2. Throw it away!
If you don’t need it and you haven’t used it in the past 6 months then it is probably time for you to throw it away. The hardest thing about spring cleaning is getting rid of things, some people might avoid this activity entirely and just devote themselves to cleaning, but the main purpose is to declutter and make space. Prepare yourself for this activity by putting things aside that you are ready to get rid of, and mentalize yourself to throw away more things than you initially thought of.
3. Don’t give up halfway
The hardest thing about spring cleaning is getting tired halfway through and not finishing your entire home. One of the best options here is to have a schedule to know when to start and when to finish each room, the most important of setting a time frame, is to have a motivating mentality throughout the entire process. Keep a purpose in your mind of why you’re doing the spring cleaning, either you want to feel your home more tidy or organized, or simply because looking at certain things stresses you out, whatever purpose you pick keep it in mind throughout the entire process and use it as your motivation.
Use this time to rearrange spaces, try out new things, and move furniture around. Don’t be scared of trying something new and out of the ordinary, often playing with spaces may give your room an entirely different look. Take advantage of spring cleaning and have your home looking different and renovated by the end of it.
