Spring-Time Tidy Tips
Congrats everyone, we made it through a year of Covid challenges!
Spring 2021 is finally upon us, an opportune time to clean, organize and start fresh!
Changing the time on our clocks is our trigger to know it’s time for our bi-annual household chores.
Tackling certain household cleaning and maintenance jobs 2 times a year makes your home tidier, organized, and more efficient. Tackle one thing at a time by scheduling it on your monthly calendar.
Check out Kim's Organizing Solutions bi-annual check-list:
Swap your seasonal clothing and purge. Start 2021 with a clean slate by donating, giving away, or selling clothing that no longer fits you. Worn clothes are taking up valuable space.
Dispose of worn plastic storage containers. Containers with a #3, #6, or #7, those should be trashed because they are considered high-risk plastics. Also, be sure to discard any plastic containers that are scratched or badly worn.
Purge your refrigerator and freezer – toss anything that resembles a science experiment or freezer-burned.
Clean out the pantry and cabinets. Remove items that are out-of-date, re-organize and wipe down all surfaces.
Update Medicine Cabinet. Dispose of any medicine that's expired and dispose of it responsibly.
Clean out and organize your file cabinets – With Tax time being around the corner now is the time to clean out your files.
Flip and rotate your mattress. Flip it 180* to improve mattress longevity and comfort.
Change the batteries in all household items. Include battery-powered smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Think about testing your security system.
Remove any built-up lint from the dryer hose.
Tidy your car. Clean out that dirty car's trunk, console, and glove compartment. Do you need new wiper blades or tires?
Let's start spring with joy and optimism. If you need more strategies to be productive and organized,
