It’s that time of the year where we purge and clean everything we have been hoarding for the year. It can be a little daunting at times because we never realize how much stuff we have. I am super guilty of keeping things for just in case moments and then I never use those items. I still can not believe that it is already Spring which means cleaning. Lots and lots of cleaning for that matter. So I decided to create a guide if you will to help you out on your Spring cleaning adventures.

Create a plan Of action
Before tackling a huge project, I like to devise a plan of where I want to start and the processes that go along the way. That is why I have a ton of planners and I wish I was kidding. Make a list of the things that are in need of desperate attention such as your baseboards, because who remembers to clean those? When devising this plan, think of the things that have been neglected for a while. Instead of cleaning the things that people always see, clean the things that have been hiding under the dresser or under the sofa. I have created a spring cleaning guide to use as a reference or a way to start tackling those to-do list items.
There’s no sense in cleaning and dreading it, it will make you want to do it less and less. So why not have fun while scrubbing dishes? Turn on some music and go to town. Clean to your favorite tunes, it will put you in a better mood and you’re more likely to break out in dance than cleaning in silence. Another way you can include kids or a significant other into cleaning is by playing a game. Devise a game where the person who clears off the most on the to-do list gets a prize or doesn’t have to clean for a whole day. So get creative and figure out how to include the whole family instead of doing the task by yourself.
Schedule some time
Okay, not everyone wants to dedicate an entire day to cleaning their whole house especially on the weekends. I can’t imagine doing it for the days I need to deep clean some corners of my apartment. So instead of doing everything at once, unless you’re the type that likes to get it done and over with, spread out your chores across the span of a couple weeks. I made this spring cleaning calendar and while it is not the best, it can help track the days you want to clean. I made it so it can be used for any month, if you choose to do it in May or even in June. Schedule just a little task here and there and before you know it, you have checked off half of your to-do list throughout the week.
I hoped this helped you get a better handle on how to tackle the task of spring cleaning. I also hope that the attachments helped as well if you’re a person who needs inspiration or something to write on. I did post below my favorite products to use while cleaning because it gives off a great aroma and really helps in cleaning. I love this brand and stick to it, but if you already have some products, use the ones you already have and then give this a chance if you’re feeling froggy. Okay with much love, go collect those dust bunnies.
