It’s that time again- spring time. The time when flowers bloom, everything is green and fresh, there is pollen all over everything…and some of us engage in a little yearly tradition known as spring cleaning.

I don’t know about you, but my house needs some extra TLC, and I can’t always get to those extra things during the school year. Like many others, I choose to spend a few days in the spring giving my house some extra cleaning and organizing. Today, I’d like to share some tips for getting your house cleaned and organized but in a simple and timely manner.

1. Give your closets some TLC 

One of the first things I tackle are our overflowing closets. and donate what I do not need, throw away what is damaged, and organize and put away anything else.

2. Clean your kitchen: clean your cabinets, fridge, freezer, and pantry.

Give your fridge a good cleaning before cleaning out your pantry and cabinets.

Remove any expired foods or unneeded kitchen items from your pantry. 

Use cabinet organizers to keep your needed items within easy reach.

3. Organize your bathroom!

Organize your linen closet by donating items you don’t use anymore, and throwing away expired items. 

Use drawer and cabinet organizers to keep everything in easy reach.

5. General cleaning

I also like to do some extra cleaning, such as moving furniture and cleaning under or behind it, or cleaning our blinds. We also pressure wash the sidewalks, porch furniture, and outside of the house. We also take down the curtains and wash them.
