Do a stocktake
Households of Sydney and New South Wales, take note. Now that winter is behind us and the days are mostly getting warmer and longer, it’s time to do a stocktake and work out what needs doing around the house when it comes to a comprehensive spring clean.
For many of us, springtime is all about feelings of renewal, regeneration and growth: there is no better time to roll up the sleeves and get moving on those jobs around the home!
Easy to dilly-dally
That might be easier said than done for some… We tend to be two types of people when it comes to a spring clean: those who relish them and those who avoid them like the plague. A spring clean is more than just a quick tidy up: they do require a level of dedication and fastidiousness.
Time to commit
It could well be that you’d prefer to avoid them. After all, a spring-clean or declutter needs a certain amount of mental and physical energy in the kitchen, laundry, study, bathroom or wardrobe. Once you get going, you may find you really get into it, and soon feel a sense of accomplishment.
If you have more than one area in your home that needs attention, it may take some organising to work out what needs doing and how long it is going to take: it could be hours, days or weeks.
It might be difficult to imagine at the start of the process, but there are many benefits to committing to a spring clean, including to your mental health. It can lower stress levels, improve your mood, boost your productivity and can even add to your home’s safety such as if you tidy up foot traffic areas like hallways filled with children’s toys.
Best house in the street
A spring clean or declutter of kitchen cupboards, drawers, pantry and the like can really make you feel house proud and relieved that you have tackled a job you have been meaning to do for a while – you might fall in love with your home all over again and that’s a lovely feeling in a year that has seen us have to deal with the challenges of the Covid 19 pandemic.
Not only that, you may well feel like a load has been taken off your shoulders: the house is cleaner, better organised, neater and a pleasure to be in. It may well inspire you to think about a bigger renovation or makeover such as a new flatpack kitchen.
A spring clean can mean the aforementioned decision to buy a flatpack kitchen such as those available at SmartPack.
