Spring Sprucing To Dos

April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.

William Shakespeare

Ah spring. The time for fresh starts and spring cleaning. Although I try and keep up with everything year round, I like to go extra hard in the spring in preparation for the brutal Texas summers. I want everything as streamlined, minimized, and light/airy as possible. So here’s my spring to do list (and hopefully you get some ideas as well)!

Purge

  • Expired or unneeded OTC medications, vitamins, and prescriptions. (You can safely dispose of these at certain Walgreens locations.)
  • Extra cords and chargers. (Drop these off at your local tech recycling.)
  • Unused hangers. (Donate to Goodwill or other similar store.)
  • Ripped and worn out towels and blankets. (Drop these off at your local animal shelter.)
  • Decor items that went unused this past holiday season. (Donate to Goodwill or other similar store.)

Clean + Reorganize

  • De-pile sweaters and winter wear before storage.
  • Wash winter bedding and blankets before storage.
  • Clean out receipts and other trash from purses and wallets.
  • Re-organize car kit and donate/give away to friends any excess reusable bags.
  • Clean out the fridge/freezer of any expired or unwanted food items. (Remember to recycle any glass, plastic, or aluminum packaging.)

Fun Stuff

Boring Stuff

  • Make sure all light bulbs in the home are LED — 4 years later, we realized that we never changed the incandescent light bulbs in our closet!
  • Swap out all water and air filters in the home.
  • Call pest control for a treatment before summer.
  • Touch up the walls and baseboards.
  • Install fans in bedrooms before summer.
