Get New Cleaning Supplies
Getting new cleaning supplies can be a great motivator. Get some fun fresh scents for spring that will be sure to put you in the cleaning mood! Once you have all the supplies, get a portable basket that you can tote around to the different areas of your house. This will also make it easier for the next time you have to clean.
Check to see what you have for organizational containers as it can get overwhelming quickly, so see what you have first. You don’t need to go crazy with buying organizational products/containers, just start with a few areas that you feel confident with organizing and go from there.
Get Some Measurements
There is nothing worse than getting home with your brand-new purchase and finding out it doesn’t fit in your space. Be sure to get some quick measurements before you go to purchase any organizational containers. Remember, measure twice, buy once!
Take Everything Out
You need to see and touch everything from the drawer, closet, cupboard etc. It may seem silly, but I promise once you see everything out and you can hold each item, you will be sure to declutter even better. If you stick with this step, I guarantee the next time you need to declutter this space it will be far less daunting because I bet you will get rid of more than you originally thought.
Don’t Skip On Cleaning
This is the perfect time to deep clean under the spices that have been there since 1998. I know after organizing and decluttering, you might not have the energy to deep clean the space, but this is the PERFECT time to do it. There is nothing in the way so cleaning this space will be the easiest it will ever be!
Remember to just start in a small area first that you know you can handle. Once you complete that small space you will be on your way to spring cleaning your entire house!
