Out With The Old and In With The New! My Spring Cleaning Routine

Every year as soon as Spring arrives I have a routine to make our home feel as fresh as possible... Out with the old and in with the new!

One of the first things I do is declutter every room in the house... I don't know how we manage to accumulate so much junk in the winter but it's ridiculous! I start by going through all of our toys and weeding out one's that we no longer use... Between Christmas in December and Trevor's Birthday in January we always end up with an over abundance, so before Brayden's Birthday comes in May I make sure we have enough room to put everything without feeling like we're drowning in toys.

After the toys, comes the clothes! As soon as the weather warms up I go through everyone's closet and dresser and pull out any heavy fall/winter clothes and either store them in space bags for next year or donate them if I know the boys won't fit them next year. This makes room for all the new spring/summer clothes they'll be getting, plus donating always feels good!

Last but certainly not least is the garage, which is where anything and everything seems to end up! I spend an entire day pulling everything out of the garage, getting rid of stuff we no longer need, then organizing whatever's left... Not only do I feel accomplished when this is over, but it also helps to be able to get to toys, bikes, etc... when we go outside to play!

This year I decided to take it one step farther and freshen up our bathroom routine as well. You see, Brayden's always been the kind of kid who HAS to wipe with wet wipe when he's done doing his business in the bathroom, and I always thought it was a great idea! Not just for kids, but for adults too... I mean, how many times have you done your business and came out not feeling as fresh as you would like? Well, did you know that Cottonelle offers flushable moist wipes for adults! Now you can leave your bathroom feeling fresh and ready to tackle the day!
