Hello Gorgeous, today is the first day of spring, which means HELLO SPRING cleaning! Starting today till the last day of spring I’ll be posting spring cleaning, spring DIY’s, spring fashion, and anything to give your life a mini make over. We can transition from our cozy areas we’ve been hibernating for winter into the bright colorful warm spring days together.

So the first step to welcoming spring is to declutter. I’ve made the perfect list to help you declutter and I’ve also come up with questions to ask yourself in case you can’t seem to get rid things you should.

 

Questions to help you declutter:

  1. Is this item something I use regularly?
  2. Is this item something I love?
  3. Am I keeping this item out of obligation or expectation?
  4. Am I holding on to this item because I think I should love it?
  5. Am I saving this item “just in case”?
  6. Am I holding onto a broken item to fix one day?
  7. Is this item worth the time I spend cleaning it and storing it?
  8. Could I use this space for something else?
