Our Favorite Tidying Up Tips For Spring Cleaning
With Spring just around the corner and all this talk about the KonMari Method, we have been feeling extra inspired to give our spaces a freshening up. We all fall into the trap of buying more than we need, so we are big supporters of cleansing our lives a few times each year. And, there is no better time than Spring! With the weather getting warmer, we always feel inspired to give ourselves a fresh start.
Check out our top Spring Cleaning hacks for tidying up your homes and refreshing your space!
1 - MAKE A FIRST IMPRESSION
We've all heard it before. First impressions can go a long way. And this goes for your home, too! Give your front door/porch/entryway some much needed love + attention! Small upgrades like adding a fresh coat of paint to your front door or adding some extra hooks to hang your coats + bags can make a big difference. Check out these ideas for sprucing up your entry way from Apartment Therapy.
2 - DO THE TRASH BAG TANGO
Maybe you have tried this method a thousand times before, or maybe the idea is completely new to you! Either way, this is one of our most highly recommended tips for decluttering your home. Take one trash bag and fill it with items you don't need that are only adding clutter to your space. This is also a great opportunity to recycle items by donating to good will or other similar organizations!
3 - RECYCLE + UPCYCLE
If you are anything like us, you probably have a million DIY ideas you want to do at all times. This is the perfect opportunity to take old items that are cluttering your home and turn them into something new + fresh! Have some old coffee cans? Turn them into planters! Maybe some old jeans? Turn them into unique coasters. Check out these and more upcycling ideas from PopSugar.
4 - COLOR CODE YOUR CLOSET
Nothing makes us feel like we have it all together more than a well organized closet. Take this opportunity to get rid of clothes you haven't worn in a while or clothes that are getting worn out. Then, find an organizational system that works for you! Maybe organize your items by color, by season, or any other way that makes sense for your life. This will make your mornings so much more pleasant. too! We also recommend splurging on nice, matching hangers to take your closet to the next level. Check out more tips here!
5 - CHECK EXPIRATION DATES
This is a quick and easy way to purge your home of unnecessary clutter. The main zones to focus on here are your pantry, refrigerator/freezer, and medicine cabinet. That sunscreen from last summer? It's probably expired. Did you know spices have expiration dates, too? Check out this handy guide to common household items and their shelf lives.
6 - SWITCH YOUR THROW BLANKETS AND PILLOWS
This is one of the easiest ways to make your home feel fresh for Spring! Colors and fabrics are totally seasonal. Swap out darker colors for bright pops or pastels. Swap out flannel and wool blankets for cotton or linen. Curate a collection of throw pillows, blankets, and other accent pieces to swap out each season (or more) to create a completely new look.
7 - BRING THE OUTSIDE IN
Nothing makes us happier than hearing the birds chirp and watching the trees come back to life. Warmer days and longer hours of sunshine make us feel renewed and recharged. Bring that feeling inside! Add a few new houseplants or flowers and watch them bloom all Spring long. It is the perfect way to add life to your home! There are many other benefits of having houseplants, too!
