Big spring clean

With Spring attempting to make a much needed appearance, it is time to prepare yourself for the big Spring clean! It’s time to bust open the windows and let the fresh air circulate around your home! National Spring Cleaning week runs between the 5th and 11th March and what better time to get started!

Here are some handy tips on how to get started with a spring clean…

Big Spring Clean

De-clutter your home

Expect to visit the tip several times, or even invest in a skip in order to completely overhaul your home. It’s a great time to get rid of items you possibly have not made use of in the last twelve months and create space. By creating space, your home will instantly feel brighter, with rooms feeling larger. De-cluttering will not only make you feel better about your home, it will also make you feel better. There are so many positive impacts from a spring clean.

Tidy your wardrobe

If you have clothes that you have not worn in a while, a spring clean is the perfect excuse either sell them on Ebay or donate them to charity. By tidying your wardrobe you may even find clothes you have forgotten about and finally put away the Winter woollies!

Put your gardening gloves on

Not only is Spring the perfect time to clean your house, but also your garden! Tidying up leaves and dead-heading plants will allow new plant life to reveal itself. Time is coming to prepare for the first mow of the year and the first of many. To make life easier, fake grass illuminates the need for mowing and is much easier to maintain all year round.

Keep your finances up to date

With the end of the tax year on the 5th April, it’s a good time to spring clean your finances. It will help you budget for the next year and hopefully allow you to put money away for a nice, family summer holiday to enjoy lots of sun!

Oh this is so relevant! I am trying to spring clean but it is not easy with three children and a job. I’m currently trying to sort out my wardrobe. It has become a real dumping ground in there! Time to be ruthless!

I love a good spring clean! I gut my cupboards, wardrobes and anything else that needs a good sorting out! However I’m not a keen gardener so I leave that to the kids and hubby 🙂

I love a good spring clear out. We do big clear outs throughout the year and sell items we no longer need and then put that money towards our travels.
