Organize Piles and Junk Drawers

If you have any piles lying around, whether they’re comprised of clothes or otherwise, this is the time to organize them. Break up different areas of clutter into organizational steps that you complete over the course of a week or even a few weeks. This way, decluttering will be more manageable and not make you feel overwhelmed or stressed. The same applies to any junk drawers you may have. It’s important to remember that taking small steps to improve your space is better than doing nothing. And with enough small steps, you’ll achieve your spring cleaning goals!

It’s Always a Good Time to Donate

You will likely have items you want to donate during your clean-up process. The best way to keep it organized is to have three boxes: one for keeping, one for donating, and one for throwing away. Take the things you wish to donate to your nearby thrift store to support your local community, give your things a new life, and benefit the environment.

Freshen Up the Closet

Put Away Winter Clothing

The time has come; you can start putting away your sweaters, down jackets, scarves, and other winter clothes! Not only will this instantly refresh your closet, but it’ll make finding an outfit in the morning much easier since you won’t have to rifle through winter clothes you won’t need until the end of the year. Neatly fold or roll clothes into a clean container that you can store on your closet shelves, or consider buying flat containers with wheels you can roll under your bed.

Only Keep Clothes That You Wear

As you’re transitioning your closet from winter to spring, take the opportunity to assess each piece of clothing. How often do you wear it? Does it fit well and feel comfortable? (Remember, clothes are meant to fit you, not the other way around!) If it’s been a few years since you’ve worn a particular item or you don’t see yourself wearing that piece any time soon, it may be time to move it to the donation box or sell it.

Organize Food Storage Spaces

Pantry and Refrigerator

Do you ever find something in your pantry or fridge that expired months or even years ago? It happens to the best of us, so we totally understand! Get on top of cleaning your food storage spaces this spring to set yourself up for success. Go through each section of your pantry, fridge, and freezer to check each item’s expiration date, discard stale products, and wipe down shelves.

Preventing Buildup in the Future

One way to prevent fridge clutter is to determine which types of foods will go in each section or drawer. We also recommend designating a section for food that needs to be used or eaten soon. This can help reduce waste, save money, and prevent food from going bad without you knowing.
