After a particularly tough winter here in New England, I don’t think I’m the only one who is READY FOR SPRING! Give me sunshine! Give me flowers! Give me color! Give me pleasant weather and cute sandals and iced coffee and spring cleaning! Really?! Spring cleaning? You betcha. I am ready to sweep away this filthy winter and make room for the inevitable mud and bugs of spring.
So what is on your To Do list ? Here are a few springtime suggestions to consider:
Check for damage – how did your deck, siding, and roof fair the winter? The endless onslaught of snow required many homes to have their roofs shoveled, possibly damaging shingles in the process. Be sure to repair these areas sooner rather than later.
Wash your windows and treatments – let’s face it, washing windows is not what most consider to be a good time. But it’s worth it! Partner up and check it off the list – you will be glad you did :) Take a moment to wash/vacuum your treatments too.
Declutter - I’m not sure any household is completely immune to stuff building up, falling where it may, quietly creating chaos in our lives. Spring is an awesome time to tackle all that STUFF. Trash, recycle, donate – you know the deal. If it’s a keeper, put it where it belongs. Overwhelmed? Break it into baby steps by starting with just one closet, or set a timer to see what you can accomplish in an hour.
Add a splash of color – sometime around January I noticed that I was absolutely CRAVING color, but the answer doesn’t have to be paint. A splash of color can come with an accent pillow on your living room sofa, a new hand towel in the bathroom, a flowering plant for your kitchen window, or a happy wreath to hang on your door.
Thanks so much for tuning in. Wishing you all a wonderful day!
