This post feels like it’s coming a bit late, but with the gorgeous weather we’ve been having, I just haven’t gotten into spring cleaning mode. Who wants to sit in their chilly basement organizing a filing cabinet or unpacking when it’s absolutely gorgeous outside. I know I certainly don’t. Give me that vitamin D!
April has come & gone though, & it’s time I got my butt in gear. May brings some really exciting things for us (that I’ll share later, unless you’re following me on social media & already know!) & I’d love to have the house more in order. N doesn’t seem to think it’s an issue, but do guys really notice this? Personally, I love when everything is organized.
My biggest issue is that I’m not very good at keeping my space organized unless there is proper storage for everything. I find it so satisfying to have everything in its place. I’m planning to work on that side of things this weekend. Anyone else just love a really tidy & organized space?
We’ve been in our place for 8 months & I vow that I am finally going to organize our office & the closets. We have old paint in the storage room that we will never reuse that I’m getting rid of, our tools & cleaning supplies are going to get their own organized bins, & I’m finally going to do the dreading filing I should have done in April (like before tax season, when you’re supposed to do it). I’m partially posting this to hold myself accountable, but I’m also curious what works for all of you. Two weekends ago, I painted our bedroom so I’m trying to continue this trend of home improvement over the next few weeks. There’s so much to do!
I’m a big lists person. There’s something so satisfying about checking something off as done. I love the bullet journal for that. Being on the forgetful side, I find it really helpful to write down all the things I’m planning to get done & the places I need to go in order to make that happen. Honestly though, if something isn’t written down there is a 60% chance I will forget it.
So let’s do this, friends. There’s no crazy beautiful weather in the forecast this weekend so let’s get organized. I’ll even post some before/afters in the future. I’ve got a couple good ones so far & it’s only going to get better from here!
What’s on your to do list this weekend? Where you smart about spring cleaning earlier in the year, or are you waiting to get it done when the weather’s gloomier?
