spring decluttering + cleaning | kick that winter clutter to the curb

Ahhh, spring is upon us which means extra daylight, trees and flowers showing signs of life, and of course ... spring cleaning! There is just something about opening up the windows again after a long winter that triggers many of us to feel the urge to give the heave-ho to accumulated winter clutter and grime.

Spring is an excellent time to hop on the decluttering + cleaning bandwagon and use it as a catapult to get your home back in order.

let spring reinvigorate you to start your own decluttering marathon

As a master in the KonMari method of decluttering, I've helped many people through their decluttering marathon which is where you go through and declutter every single nook and cranny of your home in a particular order. First, your clothes, then books, then papers. Once papers are complete you work on Komono (translates to the word miscellaneous in English), which is usually the largest category with many subcategories. Your last stop are those items deemed sentimental.

It is after you declutter than you are able to create organizing systems and solutions. Read more about this from last year's Neat Little Nest's spring cleaning blog.

If you've found yourself struggling with staying organized in general, and you need help staying on track with your decluttering tasks, please grab one of our free decluttering checklists.

use spring as an opportunity to swap out and re-evaluate your wardrobe

For many people, a seasonal switch in a closet is a necessity because their closet’s real estate is at a premium. For others, a seasonal clothing swap isn’t as significant of a to-do because it simply requires a rotation of a few items from the back of a larger closet or a high shelf to a position more readily accessible for the current season. Whether your seasonal switch is a minor or major, the spring cleaning season gives you a great opportunity to take a closer look at your clothes to see what's still serving you well and what no longer makes the cut. Check out our full post on how to switch out winter to spring seasonal clothing.

let spring provide you with a fresh perspective on decluttering more holistically

With extra pep in your step, spring might offer you a new perspective on more than just decluttering your stuff. You might consider digging deeper with your decluttering efforts and start to really think about how your time and your mind clutter might be areas in your life that really could use a thorough spring cleaning. If these are considerations you think would be helpful for you to dig into more deeply, we suggest a few options to guide you through a deeper dive.

use spring as a way to reconsider how you clean

When your home is cluttered and disorganized, it becomes much more difficult to clean because you have to move so many things around to actually clean spaces.

Since a good spring breeze might motivate you to declutter + clean + organize your home, it's a great time to consider a revamp on your cleaning products as well. While there seems to be a cleaning product for every single cleaning challenge you might find yourself wondering which ones are the best for many pursuits as many of one-hit wonders only find their way to the back of the cabinet when they can't fulfill multiple needs.

At Neat Little Nest, we recommend you simplify your cleaning and go back to the basics. Distilled vinegar, baking soda, Castile soap and lemons/lemon juice are some of Neat Little Nest’s favorite go-to “clean” cleansers. Be sure to have a handled caddy to contain them which will assist you in moving them from room to room. To see a list of our favorite cleaners, you can find them here.

Cleaning out the cobwebs and putting everything back in its designated home is really important as it equates to an overall sense of well-being and balance. And everyone benefits from being a happier camper as a result of a more orderly home whether they consciously recognize it or not.

So what do your spring decluttering + cleaning goals look like this year? Big or small, they all add up so go kick that winter clutter to the curb.
