Spring Cleaning Tips and Checklist


Spring has arrived! Although it may not feel like spring in Toronto just yet, it’s never too early to start thinking about spring cleaning. This is a great time to think about decluttering and organizing before you get down to spring cleaning itself, says Susan Macaulay, a professional organizer. This can include “sorting through, editing out and organizing or re-organizing your items that work for you now,” she said. She recommends working room by room, visualizing how you want each finished room to look, and sorting through papers, clothing, and other items to decide what to keep and what you no longer use. This seasonal clean out will give you and your home a great refresh and conquer any clutter that has gathered over the winter.
