As the weather is warming up, many of us begin to feel motivated to do a good spring cleaning in and around our homes. Spring cleaning is an essential part of clearing out the stuffy remnants of winter and making room for the new. There are a few misconceptions about spring cleaning, and it is important to clear those up. Here is spring cleaning in a nutshell and what it is and is not.
Spring Cleaning Is a Fresh Start
When winter begins to fade into spring, we are ready for a chance to get rid of the old and get on with the new. Spring cleaning gives us that chance to turn over a new leaf, and clean our way into a fresh mindset. Spring cleaning is a fresh start to have a better, more organized life. To take a room that has been stifled by old furniture or paint and brighten it up and give it a whole new look. But that doesn’t have to cost a lot. You can go on to Pinterest and find many different spring cleaning ideas for both DIY and frugal that can help you save money while your spring cleaning. Here is my board to start:
Spring Cleaning Is a Good Thorough Cleaning
Spring cleaning is not just your average weekly chores. Spring cleaning gives us a chance to turn everything over and clear out the cobwebs, literally and figuratively. Spring cleaning is a thorough change from the way we are currently living. It is a chance to get things moving back into the right direction if our standards have slipped at any point.
Spring Cleaning Is about Organization
Spring cleaning is not just about wiping away the grease and taking a swish at the dust. It is a great time to make an extensive list to follow, both now and on smaller levels for the future. Find ideas on the internet or in books about home organization. Add to the lists anything that is specific to you and your home so that no stone is left unturned in the process.
Spring Cleaning Is Not All-or-Nothing
As much as you may want to do as thorough a cleaning as possible, don’t go overboard. Do your best to make your home sparkly and bright, but give yourself a break when necessary. We should strive for clean, functional homes, but they must also be liveable. Do your best, and then relax with the results you acquire.
Spring Cleaning Isn’t Just about Home Cleaning
Spring cleaning is generally focused on turning your home into a better, more organized version of its previous state. However, there are plenty other things in your life that you can focus on when you are finished. Spend some of your time spring cleaning your car, and you will once again be able to enjoy your drive to and from work every day. Extend spring cleaning to your purse, and you will be able to find what you need more quickly when you are away from home.
Spring cleaning has many benefits and is something every individual should embark on. It is a great time to make your home feel like a brand new place, but your spring cleaning endeavours can extend to whatever part of your life you choose. Go through a mental checklist of every area in your life that needs some overhauling, and find ways to make those changes. With a little bit of organization and a lot of effort, you and your family will have a beautiful home and surrounding area to enjoy once again.
