Yes! After what felt like a never ending winter, spring has FINALLY arrived! I don’t know about you, but to me this felt like one of the longest and coldest winters we have had in a very long time. The kids can’t wait to get outside more and I can’t wait to get started on some spring cleaning! Yep, you heard me right, I am excited to clean! Have you heard all the rave surrounding the KonMari Method? It is a state of mind – and a way of life – that encourages cherishing the things that spark joy in one’s life (konmari.com). I have a couple of friends that have worked this method into their homes with great results. I think it is time for me to work on downsizing, decluttering, and getting rid of the excess!
We have a lot of stuff… A LOT! Do you ever wonder where all your stuff has suddenly come from? Because I sure do! It just accumulates in this household and sometimes it can feel like drowning. Well, I don’t want to drown anymore, I want feel joy in the (fewer) things I own and I want to spend more time with my kids instead of cleaning up after them! Can you say, buh-bye toys?! That seems to be the root of the “too many” that I’m sure a lot of you can relate to. As the kids grow, they too are growing out of toy stages, so getting rid of the baby toys should be easy! As for everything else….. ha!
To keep me motivated, pumped up and happy while I work on getting this house back in order, I compiled this Spring Cleaning Playlist that I thought you might all enjoy too! I have created a shared playlist in our iTunes that you can access here. You can also click on each of the songs below to hear them in YouTube!
Lastly I want to say, enjoy the process of cleaning and making your space your happy place! Sure we need to put in a little elbow grease, but the end results are always worth it. I am so happy that spring is here, and that summer is not that far away! There are so many good things that lie ahead of us as the weather changes, so while there is still snow on the ground, I am going to get the house clean before most of our days are spent outside! Happy cleaning everyone!
