Spring Cleaning

Spring is one of my favorite times of year. The weather starts getting warmer and flowers start to bloom, but it’s also the time of year I go through all my stuff and try to get rid of some things that I no longer need. I get quite attached to certain things, so I just try to focus on when the last time I used the item and if I really need(I definitely keep things that I should get rid of, but have some sort of memory attached to them). I’m particularly bad about getting rid of shoes; I have two pairs of shoes with giant holes on both shoes, but my shoes always reminded me of where I have been. In any case spring feels like a time of new beggings, that’s why I try to start it with decluttering and trying to break bad habits like putting things off as much as I possibly can. fullsizeoutput_1fd

When going through stuff I usually start with my wardrobe. It’s good to start with things that I never wear or getting rid of things that don’t fit anymore. I have a fairly small wardrobe so I find this pretty easy. fullsizeoutput_1fa

After everything has been gone through it is time to start cleaning:o

Thankfully spring isn’t just about cleaning; it’s a great time for picnics, bike rides, and spending time with family and friends.

Happy Sping ❤
