Spring is on the doorstep here in the Northeast. And after the winter we’ve had, it can’t get here soon enough. We are certainly looking forward to spring here at My Divine Concierge. With the spring season, there are plenty of opportunities for us to help clients who want to clear out, organize, and make better use of their home and office spaces.
How about you? Do you have grand plans for this spring? If so, now is the time to start thinking about how you will implement those plans. From spring cleaning to getting the yard in order, there is a lot to do in order to recover from the malaise of winter. Below are some helpful suggestions we’ve gleaned through the years of experience working with clients on their spring projects. If you need help with your projects, please don’t hesitate to ask. That’s why we are here.
Schedule Your Spring Cleaning
If you’re the kind of person who goes through an entire spring cleaning regimen every year, don’t leave this year’s cleaning to chance. Don’t approach it with the attitude of getting to it when you can get to it. Instead, schedule your spring cleaning. Pick some dates and write them on the calendar. If you have to coordinate with the rest of the family to find dates you can all live with, do that as well.
Scheduling your spring cleaning accomplishes a number of things:
- it motivates you to actually get going and do it;
- it encourages your family members to commit to a day and time;
- it helps to eliminate procrastination; and
- it gives you a solid goal you can work toward and eventually accomplish.
Start Thinking about Storage
The principle of storage is an important part of spring cleaning. Now is the time to start thinking about your storage on two fronts, beginning with the storage you currently use. You may have to clear out that storage in order to come up with a viable plan to reorganize the house this spring. It really comes down to whether all your current storage options are maxed out or not. If so, part of your spring cleaning might include a bit of decluttering.
The other storage consideration is that of coming up with new storage options that increase efficiency and maximize space. Let’s face it; we don’t always think through storage options in the heat of decluttering or cleaning up a sizable mess. So these last few weeks of winter might be a good time to actually sit down and analyze how you can create new and better storage options around your home.
Give the Yard Some Thought
Spring is a great time to do some much-needed work on the yard. So these last few weeks of winter are a good opportunity to give some thought to what you want your yard to be like once all your spring projects are complete. Planning things now will give you plenty of time to decide on flower bed choices, acquire your mulch and other supplies, speak with some lawn care experts about springtime seeding and fertilizing, and so on.
Just a few more weeks and the sounds and sights of spring will start arriving. It certainly is reason to be excited, isn’t it? Make this spring the best ever by getting a jump on all your cleanup and restoration projects now. Make plans, set your schedule, and gather all the supplies you’ll need so that you’re ready to go.
