Lately, I’ve been noticing more and more signs that spring is upon us! 

The slightly warmer breezes. The smell of freshly unveiled grass. The birds chirping in the morning. Not to mention the puddles everywhere! 

Like most people this time of year, I’ve been feeling the sudden urge to do some deep cleaning and organizing. We’ve been buried for months under heavy snow, bulky jackets, and layers of dark clouds. Now, it’s time to let in the clean air, bright sunshine and joyful anticipation of spring. 

So, as we transition into this new season, I’ve put together a checklist of some of the things I’m hoping to get to during spring cleaning this year! Please feel free to use this list as a guide if you’re also interested in sorting out your spaces in the coming months.

  • Wash bedding and pillowcases 
  • Organize drawers 
  • Tidy closet (donate any clothes you don’t wear)
  • Disinfect desk and surfaces 
  • Clean keyboard, mouse and phone
