FIVE ON FRIDAY

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — sakaco @ 10:07 am

As we’ve  been talking about in our last posts…. it’s about that time of year again…time for….SPRING CLEANING!  I actually love the idea of Spring Cleaning! Well, the end result , anyway! There is something about the feeling of de-cluttering and getting rid of those things you haven’t used in 5 years, reorganizing those pesky drawers and closets so you can actually find things, and tackling those twice yearly projects that make your home feel fresh and sparkly!

But I don’t necessarily look forward to the process of all this work! So I’ve come up with 5 tips to help put some “fun” into the process and to make this work feel a bit less overwhelming. You know, like how a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down!  So here are 5 tips for this Friday …

tulips in vase1) First of all, buy yourself some spring tulips to get yourself in the mood! Nothing says “SPRING” like a few simple tulips! That should give you a boost to your spring spirits!

2) Tackle your projects in small doses. Maybe one drawer a day or if you have more time, tackle two. You should be able to get small spaces reorganized in 15-20 minutes or less. If you are a list maker, make two  list. One list of the small spaces and one of the large spaces and cross them off as you do them! I LOVE the feeling of crossing things off when I’m done!

3) Open up a window and let in some fresh air! I do this even in the middle of winter sometimes. There’s nothing like the invigorating smell of fresh air to perk you up! Even if it’s open for just a short time while cleaning out that drawer!

4) Clean out the simplest space first to inspire you to keep going. Yes, even one re-organized drawer can  motivate you to go further. And start NOW to get that “spring clean” feeling started!

5) Change your decor up a bit for inspiration. “Shop” in your own home. Get that pillow out of the bedroom and put in the living room to freshen it up with a new look. Maybe even switch up some furniture. A new look, no matter how small, can inspire you to get your house in order.

If you have more ideas to help make this chore more palatable, leave a comment and let us know. We all need all the help we can get!
