Tip #1: Clean out your closet- The time has come to reassess your wardrobe and make space for some new pieces. A thorough closet cleaning process includes removing everything from your closet and dresser, placing every item on your bed, selecting which ones you would like to keep and putting them away, and separating the ones that you haven’t worn in months to be donated. Although it can be quite difficult for many people to let go of their belongings, getting honest with yourself and giving away the things you no longer wear to someone who truly needs them is incredibly rewarding. Plus, you get to make way for new clothes to come in!
Tip #2: Deep clean your kitchen- The place where you cook and eat should arguably be one of the most hygienic in your home, yet often times it’s not. Take the time to thoroughly deep clean your kitchen and make it shine like the bright spring sun. Clean inside and behind appliances, countertops, sinks, and the floor to leave your kitchen looking brand new. Go the extra step and clean out your pantry, getting rid of anything that has already expired and organize your food so that it’s all neat and visible. Be sure to use safe cleaning products, especially if you have children or pets.
Tip #3: Declutter and organize your space- Once you’ve made progress with your closet and your kitchen, it’s time to take a good look at the rest of your home. Go room by room and throw away any built up junk, donate things you don’t use anymore, and organize everything that you’re left with. Try rearranging the furniture or turning an unused space into a hobby room, just have fun with it. Nothing makes you feel like spring has arrived more than having a clean, orderly home that makes you feel happy and energized!
Tip #4: Freshen up your décor- Now that winter has passed, spring is here and it’s time to make your home more lively. Spring is all about fresh flowers, vibrant colors, and warm sunlight! While in South Florida we have these things year-round, it’s still a great idea to have a somewhat seasonal rotation in your decorating scheme. Easy accessories to update are throw pillows, colorful objects or coffee table books, inexpensive flower vases with fresh flowers, and duvet covers and shams. Switching up your décor for a new spring look will also bring a refreshing, positive energy to your home!
Tip #5: Repair things that need maintenance- A new season, particularly spring, signifies a new beginning. It’s time to finally get around to fixing the things that need repair around your home, both big and small. Start off by assessing everything that needs maintenance and make a list to help you keep track. The truth is that things break all the time and spring is a prefect occasion to repair them- think squeaky doors, leaky faucets, or faulty A/C units. It’s a great idea to fix these things now before the hot summer months arrive!
