Spring and then, summertime bring warmer weather and sunny days. While a thorough spring-cleaning will be ideal, you can also prepare your home for warm weather with just a few home management and organization tips and ideas. Here are some easy, doable ways to welcome the Sun and bid goodbye to the cold, wintry days.
Get Ready for Spring with Clean Windows
Clean windows will let you enjoy the sunlight and bright days without the grime and dust that tends to settle on them. You can clean and shine your windows easily in less than an hour and by using either a commercial window cleaner or a homemade vinegar-water one. Also, remember to open your windows frequently to let the breeze in and air out your home naturally.
Eat Healthily During Springtime with an Organized Refrigerator
The spring days are a perfect time to clean out and organize your refrigerator. Leftover frozen foods from the winter season, uneaten packaged foods and food gifts that don’t fit in with your family’s tastes should be donated to a charity or food bank. Spend some time in emptying the fridge and cleaning it out to prepare it for summer foods and healthy eating.
Organize the Closet for Summer Time
Get ready for springtime and summer by weeding out winter wear that is torn, the wrong size, really worn out or would simply not be needed the next season. Go through the linen closet as well and before storing away the comforters, quilts and blankets, examine them for stains, piling and tears. Repair what can be repaired but give the rest away. Organizing the closet will free up space and prevent you from pulling out torn, stained or too-small clothing and linen the next season.
Decorate Your Home with Summer Beauties
Springtime is a season of blooming bulbs and beauties. Decorating your home will not need a big budget. You can do it easily by gathering flowers and blooms from your garden and bringing them in. Also, use table, bed and bath linen in spring colors – greens, yellows, blues are favorites. Adding a dash of color and brightness will make the summer days more cheerful and enjoyable.
Preparing the home for spring season doesn’t have to be time-consuming. Simple things, like clean windows, crisp, colorful linen, some flowers are perfect for welcoming springtime and warm weather.
