WHEN DOES SPRING START AND END
Spring begins March 20 and ends on June 21, 2018.
SUGGESTED BASIC TWO-STEP
Organize your spring cleaning into two steps:
- Who are you going to call?
- What can you do everyday for 32 days?
Now is the time to shop prices and start scheduling appointments in advance to hire reputable companies. Examples may include:
- Hard Wired Smoke Detectors
- Central A/C Maintenace
- Roof Inspection
- Dryer Vent Cleaning
- Gutter Cleaning
- Window Washing
- Water Heater Inspection
- Termite and Pest Inspectors
ASK NOT WHAT THEY CAN DO FOR YOU BUT WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR YOU
Count the number of rooms in your home. To that number, add the following:
- # of Closets
- Linen Closets
- # of Drawers
- Storage Spaces
- Storage Sheds
- Yard Work
If the number you come up with is something like 7 rooms plus 25 extras, take a pledge to go through all 32 places in your home each day and pick a number, i.e., minimum 5, or the maximum # (your choice). Or schedule a time at minimum 5 minutes a day, then commit to spend each day dedicated to each room or added place to declutter and remove, repair, discard, or donate at minimum five items or more.
TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES
If you plan to commit, your spring cleaning will be easier than you think. Your house and property will be clean in no time. You will not feel exhausted, even if do choose the minimum effort, something is better than nothing. Not only will you free up space in your home to make it look good, smell better, and be in better condition, you will be free to enjoy the beauty of spring and summer having more time on hand for activities of your choice.
