How to Make the Most of Your Spring Cleaning
Start From The Top
Anytime you clean, you will want to start from the top and work your way down. So, think: ceilings, walls, cabinets, shelves, floors (of course, fit this for your house specifically). When you are deep cleaning, you will also want to section off your tasks to make it easier and more bearable too. So, for example, if you have 12 things on your to do list, just focus on 3 things each day. Start small and work your way from the top to the bottom. Create a to do list based on this idea so that you can stay on track and ready to go from task to task without having to think too much into it.
Empty Out Your Closets
Some of the hardest spots for me to spring clean are my closets. Why? Because a lot of the time, they are full of junk that I don’t need or use anymore, but it’s really hard to get rid of. Clothes, for example, are items that people get so attached to! “Will I wear this again one day?” “Will I fit into this next year, or after I have the baby?” These thoughts run through our minds. Yes, I’m including you in that too because I know that you do the same thing! I know that it is hard to get rid of the things in your closets, but you will feel so refreshed once you go through everything and think logically about each individual item. Do you really need it, or think you will wear it again, or are you just holding on to it in hopes that you will, or in hopes of a “what if?”
Move Your Furniture
When you are doing a deep spring clean, make sure you do not forget to move all of your furniture out of the way. You will not believe the amount of dust and dirt that somehow makes it behind and under every large piece of furniture. It’s a little gross and I bet that you will be sneezing for the rest of the day after you clean behind the furniture, but you will definitely be glad to get it done!
Don’t Forget About Your Valuables
When you are working on getting rid of things, you want to make sure that you get the most cash for your items as possible. Because of this, you have to think logically. Selling your valuables such as jewelry, watches, and even luxury handbags at yard sales is not the best. Typically, people who go to yard sales want a deal - they don’t want to shell out a bunch of cash. So, instead of selling your valuables items there, consider a business such as Chapes-JPL. Chapes-JPL is an Atlanta-based business that buys valuables from you. As rolex buyers in Atlanta, they are able to quickly evaluate your watch against today’s prices and give you an honest offer. If you are looking to sell watches, handbags, jewelry, or even a car, Chapes-JPL can offer you cash at today’s best value...and right now, that’s really important to keep in mind because who knows what the economy is going to look like in a few months. In addition to rolex watches, Chapes-JPL also buys watches made by Patek Phillip, Breitling, Omega, Ulysse Nardin, and more. Call them today if you want to make the most for your valuables!
Have Fun With Organization
One of the best things about doing your spring cleaning is that you can reorganize everything and for me, that is a lot of fun! You could say that I am a Container Store junkie - I love all of the ideas when it comes to organization. I have been organizing like crazy during the quarantine, because it truly makes me a better person when I have an organized space. I find that I am so much more productive and have a clear mind. It can be so much fun to implement organizational systems that work for you and fit each area of your home.
Put The Extra Money Towards Something Fun
If you made money from selling your valuables or other items at Chapes-JPL, or at a yard sale, use the extra money and put it towards something fun. Plan a trip (of course, when it’s safe to do so), buy a new piece of furniture or something else you’ve been wanting, or renovate your wardrobe by filling your closet with items that replace the ones you got rid of. Make sure that you aren’t filling your home with junk again, though, or else you will have to do a full cleaning (junk removal) experience again.
