Start your spring clean a little earlier this year

Spring is nearly upon us, so why not start the cleaning early? As long as you are organised and tackle it in stages, it will pass much quicker than you’d think it would. Following this method should make your annual cleanse just that bit easier.

Make sure to clean one room at a time, to avoid confusion. It’s best to use five baskets or bins with a different purpose for each one.

1. Put Away: Use this basket for your items that have somehow gotten away from their designated areas, wherever they may be. Return them to their spaces once you are finished in that room.

2. Recycle: Any paper, plastic or glass etc. You likely already have some forms of recycling bins in your home but whilst decluttering the room just keep them in here.

3. Fix/Mend: Any items that require fixing or cleaning. Make sure you actually intend to mend them though, otherwise it’s just taking up space.

4. Rubbish: Just any unrecyclable rubbish that can go straight in the bin

5. Sell/Donate: Any old clothes, toys, video games, decorative items, if there’s still a use for it you could sell it online or at a car boot sale. Alternatively, you could give the items to a friend or even donate it to a local charity shop.
