Organize your closet

When it’s easy for me to get dressed in the morning, I feel fab and look fab! Over the course of winter my closet gets cluttered with sweaters and boots. Now’s the time to put away the heavy clothes and reorganize for spring. I like to sort clothes by length and color, and shoes by color. It helps me see what I have and put outfits together easily. Whatever your system, it’s time to clean up!

Get some fresh air

We’ve had the windows closed for quite a while now. I like to cross ventilate my home, use room sprays and linen sprays. Febreze is great to remove stale smells, and room sprays add a nice scent to spaces. Leaving the windows open will do more than ventilate, the fresh air will re-energize you!

Toss everything in the washer

This may seem extreme but I like to wash everything! With everyday life we sometimes forget the last time we washed that slipcover. Doing everything at one time ensures your space will be completely clean. So, pick up that comforter, slipcover and pillow covers, and get started!

Reorganize your bookshelf

I often complain I don’t have enough time to read, and when I do I can’t find the books I want. Every spring I like to bring the books on my reading list forward, and reorganize my bookcase. This way I’ll be able to find what I’m looking for in a snap. Plus, this gives me a fab excuse to redecorate by bookcase. I love mixing things up!

Clean out the refrigerator

This seems like a simple idea but as I said before, life gets in the way! While your slipcovers are being washed, clean out the refrigerator, and defrost the freezer. It seems like a daunting task but if you use your time wisely you can get it all done in a few hours. Multitasking is your best friend!
