Spring is in the air.

It’s 50 degrees here in South Dakota today :) :)

If that doesn’t put every person in the state in a good mood than they just need to get their negative Nancy attitude away from me because spring is theBEST season!! Technically it’s still winter & the weather forecast is predicting for us to be back in the teens next week but might as well enjoy it while we can.

And with spring weather comes spring fever…. and with that comes spring cleaning! Luckily I planned my big after college move to a new city right in time for spring so de-cluttering my life will be a whole lot easier!

Here’s a few tips I am going to be doing to de-clutter:

  • When cleaning your room, always make the bed first.
  • Utilize the space under your desk with baskets to store paperwork, project, etc. (Also, baskets look way cuter than filing cabinets)

  • Limite yourself to only 40 or 50 hangers in your closet. Donate or toss out clothing items you haven’t wore in 6 months.
  • Have an area in your home where you are using a power strip? Like in the living room with the TV, DVD player, Blu-ray player, Wii machine…. and so on. Take a sock and cut open the end. Then string all the cords through the sock so that they all stay put together.
  • De-clutter your social media by deleting old pictures and people you don’t actually know.
  • Fold clean bed sheets up and place them in one of the matching pillowcases.
  • Always open your mail next to the recycling bin so you can immediately purge unwanted junk mail.
  • Hang your lesser-used cords on Command hooks on the inside of your cupboards.
  • Run a power strip through the back of a nightstand into the inside of a drawer so you can charge your gadgets out of sight.
  • Place a pegboard on the underneath side of your desk and use zip ties to tie up cords so they aren’t laying around on the floor.
  • Use hooks in your bathroom instead of towel bars.
  • Limit your dish sets to two or three more than the required place settings.
