Y’all, spring is my absolute favorite time of the year. I love watching the flowers bloom and hearing birds chirp in the morning. I also love my family’s annual tradition of spring-cleaning. There’s something so soothing about getting rid of all my extra junk. The process can get overwhelming if you go into it with no plan in place though. If you want to get organized, but you don’t know where to start, follow my essential spring-cleaning checklist. Your house will look spotless, and you’ll gain a newfound peace of mind knowing that your things are in order.
Clear Out Your Closets
The first order of business on my spring-cleaning checklist is clearing out my closets. Look through the space and get rid of any items you don’t wear anymore. Please, don’t just throw clothes in the trash; donate them to a homeless shelter near you. Your closets will become much more organized, and you’ll perform a good deed. After you decide what items you can part with, install some organizational mechanisms in your closet. Put in shoe racks and hangers that can hold multiple items. I can’t tell you how much my life changed after I organized this space. I no longer spend a half-hour searching through my closet in the morning.
Clean Your Car’s Interior
Spring-cleaning doesn’t only apply to your house—you should show your automobile some love too. Make sure to add cleaning your car’s interior to your spring-cleaning checklist. Anyone wondering how to clean your car interior like a pro should start by clearing out all the junk inside it. Once you have a clear picture, dust and wipe down every single surface inside your vehicle. You should also wash the windows and vacuum the floor and car mats. If you follow these steps, there’s no reason your car won’t look brand new this spring. If you’re like me, your friends and family will feel more comfortable taking a ride with you.
Organize Your Kitchen Drawers
I don’t know about y’all, but I take a risk every time I reach into one of my kitchen drawers. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve unknowingly stabbed myself with a knife because it was pointing the wrong way. Also, I can never seem to find what I need. Every time I need a spoon, I end up searching for so long that the ice cream I was going to use it for melts completely. I always make a point to organize my kitchen drawers every spring. I purchase a silverware divider, so everything can stay separated. I also try my best to ensure that everything faces the right way so that I don’t hurt myself by accident. You really should put this task on your spring-cleaning checklist. You’ll no longer get covered in cuts, and you can eat your ice cream before it melts.
