One of the first things you should do to prepare your house for the spring season is to declutter. You can start by decluttering your closet and your bedroom. Make sure to keep only the things you wear regularly, such as your favorite pair of jeans. Next, declutter the rest of your house.
If you are doing the spring cleaning on your own, it’s a good idea to remove unnecessary items in your house first before you organise a rubbish removals company to take the rubbish away. This will cut down on the amount of work you have to do as things won’t get in your way. It will also make your home more spacious to work in. Once done, it would be a great time to organise and store your belongings. You may even find it easier to start by going through each room.
Get the Children Involved
You might have a hard time with the tasks that come with spring cleaning especially if you have kids but no matter if you have toddlers or teenagers, a fun way to approach spring cleaning is to get the kids involved. Children love to help and they’ll learn to appreciate the things you have and how valuable they are. The best thing about decluttering with children is that they can take the initiative and declutter their own rooms and it will also teach them that live has its own responsibilities and mum and dad aren’t going to be there to do it for you all the time.

Have a Garage Sale
Garage sales are the best way to get rid of any unwanted items you may have, whether they be old records, clothing, books, or just old toys. The good thing is your rubbish can be someone else’s treasure and if you can make a few bucks out of it and have fun then why not. It’s even a chance to meet people in your neighborhood.

Renting a market stall is relatively cheap and besides it’s an event for the kids and can be really fun too.
Keep the Environment in mind
According to an EPA Waste Recovery Report, in 2018 – 2019 – 27% of Australia’s total waste generation was sent straight to the landfills and the problem is that when waste breaks down it generates methane gas as part of the decaying process which contributes to global warming and climate change. That is a whopping 23 million tonnes of rubbish. So, while we declutter let’s think of ways to reduce our rubbish going to the landfill.
