Whether you’re excited or dreading spring cleaning, the time is finally here. If you would like an exact date, National Cleaning Week begins every week on the fourth Sunday of March. That means in 2023- it starts on March 26th.
Not only will a clean and organized space look great, but it will also improve moods, decrease stress levels, and increase creativity. It is the ideal time to put away winter essentials and prepare your space for the warm weather.
The best tip for spring cleaning is to break larger tasks into small chores. For example, work room by room to focus your energy. Another way to do this would be to complete one type of chore at a time. Such as all of the dusting or all of the vacuuming at once.
Next, focus on practical organization. Everyone has seen those videos online of fabulously organized refrigerators and nightstands, but they are not very practical. This year, focus on organization with practicality and usefulness in mind.
Along with the usual chores, use this time to properly put away anything you only need for winter, like heavy coats. Then turn your attention to deep cleaning. Cleaning parts of your space that are often forgotten. Such as baseboards, shower curtains, and window dressings.
See spring cleaning as an opportunity for a fresh start, not a daunting task.
