Spring Cleaning: Decluttering the MCSWD Way

It’s no surprise that with warmer days heading our way, we’re going to have weekends of decluttering, trashing, and repurposing. No one wants to take bags of trash out, clean up the garage, or send half of our closet to the second-hand shop in cold, snowy, windy weather. But we’ve been hunkered down for months, collecting piles of unworn clothes and out-of-date technology, and it’s about time to break free.

Making the blanket statement that we need to “spring clean” can feel overwhelming. One way to overcome this is to chunk our tasks by room or section, starting with the most difficult (such as the garage or bedroom closets) to get them out of the way from the beginning. Here are a few tips on how to get rid of those unwanted or no-longer-needed items in your home.

family game and/or give yourself a treat every time you clean a new section of your home!
