It’s that time of year again. Blossoming trees, warmer weather, and longer days means that Spring is here! And that also means it’s time for some Spring Cleaning.
Whether you want to deep clean, organize, or downsize rooms around your home, I’ve got some tips for you for your spring cleaning.
You can also check out my previous posts on this topic. I’m not the best cleaner and my home is definitely not the most organized but I think it’s important to always learn new ways of making your home clean, safe and inviting.
Let’s think about the most used rooms and the most important rooms in your busy home. Kids rooms, closets, and kitchen.
Spring Cleaning the Kids Rooms:
- Look at your children’s closets, book shelves, and craft supplies/items. Are there clothes they’ve simply grown out of and don’t wear anymore? How about toys they don’t play with anymore? Books they no longer read? Craft supplies that are broken or glue sticks that are dried out?
- Throw away or Donate the clothes your children no longer wear or give to younger siblings. Browse their book shelf and donate or pass any books to other families that your child no longer reads or is not on their reading level anymore. Get rid of any markers, glue, paper, or any other craft items that needs to be replaced or is dried out.
- Replace any clothes, books, craft supplies, or anything else they need.
- Clean up by wiping down all surfaces, vacuum, and sweep up the floors.

Spring Cleaning the Closet
- Look at all the clothing in your closet and take out anything that doesn’t fit and what you haven’t worn in 12 months. Move the clothing that you don’t wear often to the back. Some examples would include clothes such as wedding or funeral attire, a job interview outfit, or a swimsuit coverup. These don’t need to be up front to where you need to see it everyday.
- Throw away or Donate those items of clothing to a Goodwill or charity of your choice.
- Replace any broken hangers and anything that you need in your closet.
- Clean up by picking up and putting away anything out of its spot, sweep or vacuum the floor of your closet.
Make sure to declutter your closet every 3-6 months as needed.

Spring Cleaning the Kitchen
GET READY! – prepare all your cleaning supplies, wash and dry dishes, take out the trash, remove any non-kitchen clutter, put linens(aprons, rugs, curtains) into laundry.
- Look at these in your kitchen:
- Drawers & Cabinets
- Fridge & Freezer: inside and on top of fridge
- Countertops- around appliances and any open space
- Throw away or Donate any items that you don’t want or use anymore after you pull things out and organize. Throw away any old or expired food items from the pantry.
- Clean up by washing, wiping, and drying everything. Put it all into its place.
- Store– Make sure you have somewhere to store all the things you need- cutlery, dishes, appliances, things like that. Only have what you use daily out on the counter. To save extra room, try to choose items that nest and fold and try stacking shelf organizers.
- Organize– put things together that are in the same category. Place the things you use daily or weekly in an easily accessible place in your kitchen.
