There’s nothing better than a spot of sorting out to make you feel refreshed and ready for a new season.
The days are getting longer and the sun has finally made an appearance for more than 10 minutes, so we’re calling it – spring is here.
The start of spring is a great time to refresh and reset. Overhauling your wardrobe, taking up a new hobby and spending more time outside are great ways to welcome the new season, but there’s nothing better than a good, old-fashioned sort out. Here are our top tips…
Tackle one room at a time
Start in the living room, then move to the kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms and so on. Don’t leave a room until you’re completely done, otherwise the whole house will be in disarray and you’ll be tripping over boxes for weeks.
Throw out things that are broken or no longer work and donate things that you don’t use any more. Don’t hang on to clothes you don’t wear any more and get rid of beauty products that are out of date. It’s tough, but you’ll feel great afterwards… and you can always sell some stuff on eBay!
Don’t skip the cellar/garage/spare room
We’ve all got one – that unused space in the house that serves as a dumping ground for unwanted clutter. Time to tackle it! Go after the power tools, those old cans of paint, the broken dining chair and that pile of clothes that’ve been sitting there since your last clear-out. Blitz the dumping room and that’s half the house done!
Reward yourself for a job well done
Make a deal that when you’ve finishing sorting, you’ll buy something nice to celebrate. Stick with the home theme and go for a new rug for the living room – we love this stylish monochrome version. Scented candles make the most of a decluttered space, and we love these wood and marble candle holders. Or maybe just a new pair of jeans to replace the ones you got rid of? These Levi’s skinnies should do the trick!
