Did you know that 54% of Americans report that they are overwhelmed by the amount of clutter they have in their lives? Yes, it’s true (according to HGTV), and seeing that Spring has officially sprung, it’s time for you to get rid of any clutter that may be taking over your home. But don’t feel like you have to tackle the task alone – you can speed up the process and even make it enjoyable by getting the whole family involved. Here are a few things you can do:
Save for Vacation
Has it been a while since you took a nice week-long family vacation? Decide on a destination that you all want to visit, then commit to finding a certain number of unwanted items that you can sell to fund a trip!
Develop a Scavenger Hunt
Think about what you probably have a lot of – shoes, jackets, books – and assign each member of the family one item to search the house for. Once you’ve got everything piled up in one single location, dig through it all and toss or donate anything you know you’ll never use again.
Cleaning can be a daunting task for anyone, but not when you have some of your favorite music on in the background! Whether you’re dusting, vacuuming, or simply re-organizing, put on a family friendly playlist so that everyone can dance along while they do their chores – you’ll get some exercise while you’re at it too!
Although it can be tough to get started, when you turn Spring cleaning into something fun, you’d be amazed at how quickly everyone in your family volunteers to participate!
