Spring is a time that refreshes, renews, and brings positive energy into our homes and souls. Spring cleaning is a ritual a lot of us engage in at the beginning of the season.  Some are anxious to begin, others dread it, and some just don’t do it at all. The term ‘spring cleaning’ means different things to everyone.  To some it may mean cleaning the house from top to bottom and everything in between. To others it may mean cleaning things that don’t get done during regular cleaning sessions. Whatever it means to you, the results have an internal effect [...]

Go Green During Spring Cleaning

By |2020-11-17T13:41:35-06:00April 26th, 2015|Categories: Planning, Recycle, Spring Cleaning|Tags: , , |

Image courtesy of Arvind Balaraman / FreeDigitalPhotos.net Spring cleaning is a process that can take quite a while.  It’s not typically done in a weekend.  There are many rooms and spaces to consider, along with the yard and perhaps a vehicle or two.  As we clean, we declutter and clear our homes of items we no longer need, want or love.  Some of the items to discard are still in good shape while others are not.  The items that still have life in them could be donated to a charity so that someone could reuse them.  Non-working items such as, [...]

10 Tips to Organize a Successful Garage Sale

By |2020-11-17T13:41:38-06:00June 29th, 2014|Categories: Home Organization, Organizing Tips, Planning|Tags: , , , , |

After recently performing the task of de-cluttering your spaces, and ‘spring cleaning’ to refresh the inside of your home, you probably found a myriad of items that you want to discard. There are a lot of ways to recycle items, most of which is to donate these items to a worthy cause. However, some items have more monetary value than others, and you may want to sell them rather than make a donation to receive the tax write-off. In that case, having a garage sale is an option. Other options include, selling items at a consignment shop, or selling them [...]

Clutter Weight – Shed Clothes to Shed Weight

By |2023-04-14T12:13:29-05:00April 3rd, 2013|Categories: Organizing Tips|Tags: , , , , |

As I look out my window at about a foot of snow, it’s hard to believe that spring began just a couple of weeks ago. I’m not sure if Punxsutawney Phil actually saw his shadow or not, but we certainly didn’t see an early spring here in the Midwest. I’m glad I didn’t put away the snow blower just yet. At this time of year, we start preparing for the coming of spring in terms of spring cleaning, and that can mean to shed weight…clutter weight. Changing our wardrobes from cold winter weather to warmer spring weather can jump start us [...]

Spring Brings New Beginnings

By |2020-11-17T13:41:47-06:00March 20th, 2012|Categories: Home Organization, Organizing Tips, Spring Cleaning|Tags: , , , |

Spring signifies rebirth, renewal, regrowth, new beginnings. Flowers are starting to bud as they wake from their winter slumber. Everything is fresh and new. It’s my favorite season! It’s a good time to open the windows to let out the stagnant energy after many months of winter, and let in new fresh air/energy. A good spring cleaning will refresh the inside of your home to coincide with the rebirth taking place outside. Before the cleaning begins, however, you need to de-clutter your spaces to enable your interior energy to flow freely. Cluttered spaces allows for energy to become stagnant, which [...]

Storage Do’s & Don’ts

As we begin to prepare for the coming of spring, the thought of spring cleaning and organizing comes to mind. Since organizing goes hand in hand with cleaning, that leads one to think about storage. Storage comes into play with organizing as the natural progression. The definition of storage is, “the action or method of storing something for future use.” Everything that is stored is in a container of sorts. Your house is a container for example. Every room is a container, and within each room, a closet is a container, as well as a dresser, and so on. There are [...]
