Decluttering Tips for a Fresh Start Come Spring
Spring is around the corner, and (thankfully) the busyness of the holiday season and the new year kick-off has finally died down.
However, like many people, you may be looking toward finally giving your home and space the hard reset it needs. After all, there are the decorations you may have pulled out from the attic. The winter clothes that are filling up your closet. All the holiday greeting cards you received are still sitting on the counter. And let’s not forget Christmas itself. With presents for you and the family that surely did their job filling up the space, you may feel just a bit overcrowded in your home right now.
But with Spring coming up, we think it’s the perfect time to declutter. Don’t you agree? Read on to learn 5 tips on how to declutter and get a fresh start for Spring.
What Needs to Go?
Do the 12-12-12 Challenge.
Ready to kick this decluttering task into overdrive? One of the funnest ways you can do that is with the 12-12-12 challenge. With this challenge, you’ll want to find 12 items in the house that you need to throw away, 12 you want to donate, and 12 things that have been moved out of place in the home and need to be put back.
This challenge is fun and effective, especially when the whole family joins in. So give everyone this task when it comes to their rooms in a specific area of the house, turn on some tunes, and declutter away!
Deploy the 90/90 Rule.
Make It a Routine.
Pack It Away!
Start With a Spring in Your Step.
A decluttered space can make your mind and body clearer, give them more energy to conquer your tasks, and even have a little fun.
