What does Spring Cleaning involve and what’s the best order to do it in?

Spring Cleaning is the act of decluttering, organising and cleaning your home (in that order). The five steps to declutter are:


Step One


Get rid of all the rubbish and broken bits and pieces. For those items you are genuinely going to fix place them in a box.


Step Two


Work your way clockwise around the room. Have one bag for giving away / donating, another for throwing away items that you don’t use, and another for items to keep and organise later. Tackle all cupboards and drawers too!


Step Three


If you find you have two or more of any one thing keep the best one and put the duplicates to one side. When you have a box of repeat items donate them to a charity shop.

Once you follow my top tips for decluttering and make that all important decision to begin, you will find that your productivity and creativity will improve beyond measure.
