Get Started Spring Cleaning
• Start from the top and work
downward. Follow a logical cleaning
order. Begin by dusting away
cobwebs and lighting fi xtures. Clean
light switches and walls. Empty
closets and then restock them in a
more organized fashion. Leave the
furniture and fl ooring for last.
• Be prepared to bid adieu to some
of your stuff . Have a few trash bags
at the ready. Reorganize items you
won’t be keeping into separate piles,
with one pile for items you plan to
donate and another for those items
you will discard. Donate what you
can and promptly put the remainder
of the items at the curb for pickup.
• Stay fed and hydrated. Take
breaks to fuel up on food and always
have a refreshing beverage close by.
Establishing a plan and setting
reachable goals can make spring
cleaning a lot less daunting.
• Set aside several days for spring
cleaning. Having consecutive days
to clean will reduce the chances
you grow distracted.
• Make a list and purchase all of the
supplies you will need. Again, this
will help you stay on course, rather
than going out to the store to pick up
cleaners or organizational systems.
• Set reasonable goals. Divide each
task into a series of steps so when
you complete each step you will feel
proud that you’re making progress.
• Create your musical playlist. A
playlist full of your favorite songs
can provide inspiration and energy.
