Tip One- Be Ruthless:
Out of all of my tips this is the one I need to pay attention the MOST. I am awful when it comes throwing things out/donating them. I am one of those people who hold on to everything. Notes from friends in school, primary school drawings, even t-shirts which remind me of gigs I went to even though they no longer fit. I've recently noticed that all of the clothes in my wardrobe are still there and have been since I moved in because I wash and wear the stuff I actually wear on a weekly basis and put them in drawers. I need a massive clear out of clutter, including make up and clothes!
Tip Two- Break It Down:
When it comes to cleaning I never seem to realise the reason I burn out so quickly is because of how many things I set myself to do in a short amount of time. If I were to set myself a room per day, it may be more manageable and I may actually stick to it.
Tip Three- Plan In Advance:
If you're planning a big clean, it is worth planning it in advance, stock up on cleaning products, make sure you've got plenty of time to do so. If you clean with someone else it'll make it seem less like work and more like fun. I found an awesome 7 day spring cleaning list on Good Housekeeping!
Tip Four- Storage Is Key:
Sometimes you don't realise how much room you can save by having great storage ideas. That includes under bed storage, big plastic tubs or even check out these cool ideas from Brightside they're pretty cool! Including magazine holders for hair stuff and egg cartons for jewellery holders!
