The words "spring cleaning" are stress-inducing to many. If you are one of these people, don’t fret, there are steps you can take to simplify the process. Plan and follow a schedule to declutter, clean and organize. Organize your time, plan different tasks on different days and watch how easy spring cleaning becomes.
1. Make a schedule: select a different task for each day, including as vacuuming, organizing, sweeping, closets and kitchen.
2. Donate unused items: a great way to declutter is donating unused and unneeded items. Donation bins are found throughout most cities, many shelters also accept clean items in good condition.
3. Host a garage sale: Make some cash while you clean, and buy yourself a treat when all of your tasks are complete. Drive more traffic to your sale by getting your neighbors to host their sales on the same day.
