The Holidays are way over everywhere yet some states experienced late snow storms and weather perfectly fitting for a December holiday. Rather than feelings of serenity brought on from the white blanket landscape, ‘Bah Humbug’ comes to mind. These northerners are tired of shoveling snow and are ready for spring.
Here in Florida there’s a similar reaction as premature pollen films everything that requires cleaning. Bulb shoots peek up on a hot and humid day then quickly wither with a sudden cold snap that pops out of nowhere. Some would say Mother Nature is acting a little Bi-Polar.
Whatever the case, its officially springtime…. that wonderful season that motivates us to clean up with a fresh look.
Here are a few tips to aid you in the task with some clever ways to redecorate as you go. Let’s start with the sorting,
What you’ll need:
- Big Box
- Medium Box
- Little Box
- ‘Relocate me’ box
It really doesn’t matter what size the boxes are as long as you utilize them to the fullest and label them:
Leave these in a conspicuous location for a week, such as the hallway. As you and your family go through your day-to-day life keep these boxes in mind for clothing, toys and other items you may come across.
Tired of looking at the same leopard print throw pillows and candles in your den? Relocate. How about another bedroom or even a powder room can get a quick makeover with a few re-placements.
Need motivation for entertaining? Look again to the seasons and give your table a fresh clean look with black and white chair covers and changeable chargers. Add silver for a new metal and finish it off the look with a single bright colored flower for a centerpiece. Bring more spring indoors by picking other new blossoms from your yard and place them in the ‘newly’ decorated areas.
These tips only take a few minutes a day to give your home a fresh and clutter free look in no time. The best part?…It costs nothing since you are using things you already have!
