Get Ready for Spring

For a lot of us, Spring is checking in. Hallelujah!

Spring is my favorite season. I love the warm air, the budding flowers, the world waking up after a long winter’s nap. *sigh*

One of the things I don’t love about Spring is something that follows on its heels: Spring Cleaning. I feel overwhelmed. The checklists, the categories and subcategories. A job so massive, it’s broken down by room! And in order for it to count as “Spring Cleaning,” it has to be done during a certain season. Not only that, but if I haven’t done it by the time summer hits, I’ve missed my chance! Oy.

My cure to that  stress is to try to do those things throughout the year. For example, if I end up washing my walls in July instead of April, big deal. They still get washed, right?!

Anyhoo. I digress.

Get ready for spring!


Here is a simple list of four things to do to get ready for Spring.

  1. Wash your windows. You want clean windows for all that beautiful sunshine to come through! You can buy window solution or you can make your own. There’s this awesome website called Pinterest that should have an idea or two (hundred) on how to make your own window washing solution. And just to be clear, wash them inside and outside!
  2. Pack up your winter clothes. I live in a very cold area, so we have a lot of winter gear. Boots, scarves, gloves, snow pants, etc. They take up room in our closets and entryways, leaving the house feeling crowded and cluttered. Pack them up and put them away! Don’t pack up your jackets and sweaters. You’ll probably still need those for a little while. April Showers, anyone?
  3. Wash your car. Your poor vehicle is covered in months of snow and rain and the salt they use to increase friction and reduce sliding on ice. If you don’t wash it off, it can cause damage to your paint.
  4. Stock up on your sunscreen! With Spring comes more time in the sun, which increases your chances of sunburn and, ultimately, skin cancer. Don’t be caught unawares. I know stores are already stocking sunscreen. If you have some from last year, make sure it’s not expired. If it’s starting to yellow or separate, toss it and get a new bottle. It’s not that expensive, and certainly a small price to pay for your health.

I know this doesn’t cover everything, but it’s at least a great start!

What other Spring essentials would you add to your list?

I see some great kids chores here. I've been thinking up some "extra" paid chores for them. Sunscreen is a good thing to prepare for. Especially here in AZ. It's already hot and you will burn.

I am getting ready for spring by welcoming the warmer weather! Honestly, the 40 something degrees it is today never felt so good!

We always change the linens- Here in SoCal once it starts warming up having big duvet on the bed is unbearable at night. Plus I like to bring in the brighter colors for the warmer months.
