Don’t forget, this Saturday night before you go to bed, it’s that time of year again where we turn our clocks ahead an hour. Sure, we lose an hour of sleep, but we also get a jump on spring. What better way to get a jump on spring than by getting an early start on a few things around the house? Hopefully, these early spring cleaning tips will help you to put winter behind (and what a cold winter it’s been!).
Organize Your Closets
What better way to get a start on your early spring cleaning than by organizing the clutter that has accumulated in your closets? Sure, it might not be time just yet to put away those winter hats, mitts, coats and boots (it’ll be here soon enough). However, you can tae some free time to organize your bedroom closets. Start looking at the clothes that you won’t possibly need again until next winter and start looking at bringing out your spring clothes. When the weather finally comes around, your closets will be all ready for you to pick out the most appropriate clothes possible.
Wash Your Painted Walls

With all the time spent indoors during the winter (especially if you have young children), the walls can get scuffed up. Start by taking a damp soft cloth or sponge and wiping the walls. If this doesn’t remove the marks, try adding a little dish soap to the cloth or sponge as this will usually do the trick.
Reorganize Bookshelves
Another good early spring cleaning task is to take some time to go through your books. Reorganize according to subject, title or author. Also, discard any ripped dust jackets and think about stacking some books horizontally and others vertically. This will give a different look to the shelves and help break up any monotony.
Before you know it, it will be time to head outside for the annual list of spring chores. In the meantime, try a few of these early spring cleaning tips to help chase the winter blahs away.
