It’s time for Spring Cleaning.
This year, make it something to look forward to doing.
“There is something very satisfying about finishing and knowing that you are now living in a home that is perfectly clean and organized,” Liz Inman, who owns Metro's Other Woman, a service that provides personal assistants, said. “We want you to enter the summer season with a home that is set up for organizational success.”
1. Ask for Help: Spring Cleaning can be a big undertaking. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
2. Purge: Having fewer things means that you have to clean less and will have a less cluttered life. Clear the clutter by setting up boxes labeled “keep,” “donate or sell,” “recycle” and “trash.” This will help you to make the process more efficient. Inman’s rule is if you have not used or worn something in a year, you should purge it.
3. Organize: Put everything where it belongs and make sure that everything has a home within your home. You can always find baskets and bins to help you organize at places like Homegoods!
4. Clean: “It might take a while to get to the point where you actually clean your home, but once you ask for help, purge and organize this last step will be a breeze because everything will be put away and out of your way while you are cleaning,” Inman said. If you feel overwhelmed, print out a cleaning checklist on Pinterest.
