It’s that time of the year again. When nature goes through a cleansing period as the seasons change, and we naturally get the urge to clean up our own living spaces. Especially, if we’ve been trapped inside after a long winter.But spring cleaning is never on the top of anyone’s “fun” list so how can you make your annual chores a little easier and fun this year? Check out these spring cleaning tips below!
Many hands make for light work
That sounds like something my grandmother would say to me on a Sunday, after dinner, when the kitchen looked like a bomb had been set off and everyone was pleasantly full from her cooking. However, it’s an old adage that holds true. Instead of dreading spring cleaning, make it a family affair. Crank up some tunes and get everyone involved. Transform the day into a game, with a list of instructions, a timer, and even a prize. Then reward the fun with an evening of pizza and a movie.
Delegate, delegate, delegate
Who says you have to do it all? You work hard all week, there is no reason you should have to be responsible for all the cleaning of your house from the windows, to the carpets. Hey that’s where I can come in and help! I can take a whole lot of your chores off your hands and even do it while you’re at work so you come home to a sparkling clean, healthy, home. And, if I don’t do one of your chores myself, I probably know someone awesome who does…and can arrange it to be done for you.
How do you eat an elephant?
One bite at a time! Maybe it’s a little gross, but it’s a proverb that resonates with anyone facing an “elephant sized” task. And so instead of getting overwhelmed, take a few minutes to outline everything you’d like to see done around the house for spring cleaning, then “chunk it down” into bits that you can easily accomplish. See what needs to be delegated out to a professional, and what you can delegate out to the family, and what you can take on yourself. Honestly, just seeing it scheduled out in writing can take a huge load off your mind and squelch the overwhelm.
Spring cleaning doesn’t have to be a dreaded chore. There are lots of ways to get it done that are fun, fast, and easy. When your house is clean an organized you will be all ready to enjoy all that the coming season has to offer!
