Spring is here! We all know how long this winter has been, and we’re all ready for it to get finished. Many of us have found that it’s difficult to get ourselves in gear to make sure that you have everything ready to go for this time of year.
The living room is really difficult to get in order because it’s an area that many of us spend a lot of time in there, so we have to start by actually finding a bit of time where no one is in the room. Here are some questions that you can ask yourself, which can help you out with spring cleaning in the living room or den.
Do all of the electronics work? Some of us still have a VCR (remember those?) or a DVD player in the living room that doesn’t work, but you still have them. You may have a speaker that’s gone dead or another electronic that isn’t working correctly. Spring cleaning is the best time to get rid of those items.
Are all of the batteries fresh and the clocks correct? Many people have a smoke detector in the living room, and usually a clock or two. Have you checked all of the smoke detectors in your home? Do all of the items that use batteries have fresh ones in them? Did you set the clocks correctly? Check all of these in your home at the same time so you don’t forget.
Are there any knick knacks that you don’t really like or don’t know why you have them? I know that there have been knick knacks in my home that I really didn’t like or want, and if you have that problem too, you need to get rid of them. You can get them removed when you have a junk removal service come in, or you can sell them at a yard sale, if you’re having one.
Is the furniture in proper condition? Furniture gets worn out, especially if you’re using it all of the time. Take the time to see how the upholstery is holding up. Are there any holes that you have to repair? Do you have to replace any furniture that is falling apart? When was the last time you dusted? Ask yourself all of these questions when you’re looking through your living room or den so that you can have furniture that you are proud to have your friends and family sit on.
So, if you keep these things in mind, you’ll have a much easier time figuring out what you need to do and get rid of. What do you do in order to get ready for spring cleaning? What tasks do you do in order to get everything in order for this time of year? Share some thoughts in the comment section – we want to hear from you!
