I'm always making my house a mess! 'Tis the life of a busy artist and reseller! I've mastered Speed Cleaning!
Nothing’s better for waking up from a long winter hibernation than organizing your home to let the light in (even bears do it; we’ve checked). Today I’m sharing three easy spring cleaning tips I’ve found helpful for making my home feel fresh and organized. The best part? You don’t need to buy anything. We’ll work with what you already have in your home.
Let’s get organizing!
1. Organize cluttered closets and crannies –These hidden crap piles are always lurking, waiting to avalanche on us when we need to pull out that certain oddity for a project. Here’s my escape route:
a. Pull everything out.
b. Create a trash, keep and garage sale pile– separate accordingly.
c. Create a storage system for the keeps.
d. Unload your sell pile by placing a free garage sale ad on PennySaverUSA.com or check out our mobile garage sale app MOGASA.
2. Get rid of unwanted furnishings- We all have them, a table or chair we’ve held onto for sentimental reasons, but in all honesty, don’t serve a purpose in our home. My husband and I received an adorable tiffany-style lamp for our wedding, but it didn’t fit anywhere in our home. When I finally decided to give it to a friend, I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. If you don’t have a buddy to donate to, create a free ad on PennySaverUSA to find a buyer who will love it.
3. Rearrange your furniture – Walking into the same room year after year is boring. Try moving the couch onto a different wall, create a reading nook, or swap accent pieces from different rooms. It only takes a few simple changes to give your room an entirely new look. If you really want to go crazy, grab a can of paint and create an accent wall.
I hope you’ll have as much fun as I am reworking your living space. Mine is still a work in progress, but I’ve accomplished a lot as you can see from the photo. For more spring cleaning ideas, join us on PennySaverUSA, where we’re sharing spring cleaning tips all month long.
