Spring is here! Flowers are blooming, birds are singing, and tanlines are reappearing. But in order to pull those bathing suits out from the back of our closets, we have to weed through a sea of clutter and clothing items that haven’t seen the light of day since “California Gurls” was the summer anthem.
Thus, the de-clutter gods created the annual ritual of SPRING CLEANING! It’s that time of year where we’re faced with the grueling decision between “Why don’t I ever wear this?” and “Will I ever wear this?” While we all know the general concept of spring cleaning, many of us attempt the yearly purge with an indecisive or overly liberal approach…creating even more mess than what we started with!
We’re big fans of the lifestyle blog The Everygirl here at The Rental Girl (not just because we sound like sisters), specifically their “Living” category that shows beautiful home tours and a bunch of cool design ideas and tips for the home! In their latest article “Spring Cleaning: 5 Tips to Declutter Your Home”, they lay out 5 no-excuse rules on how to spring clean and re-organize your home for the fresh new season! One of our favorite tips is “Love It or Lose It”– if you aren’t excited to wear or use a certain item, and haven’t for the past 6 months- 1 year…chances are you don’t love it, so LOSE it!
Feel all that weight you just lifted from your shoulders? Us too! Out with the old, and in with the new!
