Before you bring out all those cleaning products for your Spring Cleaning Spree, take some time and decide what items can be eliminated from your home to make room for...well...nothing!
Purging your cabinets and closets will help you and your house instantly feel lighter and brighter. Start in the easiest room first so you get some momentum. Work from room to room over the next few weeks donating or tossing items that you no longer need, use or love. Many communities have sites on Facebook where you can post "free" items for your neighbors to come and get right off your porch. You never know, something that you no longer need or use could be useful in someone else's home.
Give it a try. When it's time to open the windows and bring in some fresh air, your home will already look better even before you bring out your Spring cleaning supplies.
