Do you have piles of clothes, papers and “stuff” collecting in your home? You’re not alone. It’s time to clean up that clutter and make your abode a more enjoyable and relaxing place to live.
Create a schedule. Depending on how high those piles are, you may not be able to accomplish the task in a single weekend. So, try tackling one room at a time. It may seem like a daunting project, but it will be less scary if you break it down into segments.
Practice a one item in, one item out rule. When you buy an item of clothing, for example, get rid of one item of clothing. Not only will it keep down the clutter, but it will also make you rethink whether you really want to buy that new item.
Want to turn a profit on your spring cleaning? Sell your previously loved items during the Community Yard Sale on Saturday, May 7 and Sunday, May 8. No space rental fee required: this event is held right in your own yard! Host a street wide sale or get together with a group of friends to hunt for new-to-you treasures from your neighbors. The more buyers and sellers the better, so encourage your friends and neighbors to participate! Residents are welcome to put up yard sale signs on their property as early as Wednesday, May 4 promoting their sale. Signs are not permitted on Waterway Drive medians.
