It’s Spring Time and time to clean my closets! Trust me, I have three closets of clothes and a lot of work ahead!! If you are in the same position as me then you are already exhausted thinking about it! Remember, spring cleaning is not just about getting rid/donating your clothes, you’ll need to clean your wardrobe or walk-in closet so everything is fresh and ready for your items. Get your closet checked for any kind of infestation that your closet might have. For example, many times, we might find cockroaches in laundry rooms or closets. You might be shocked at this information, but the reality is that the roaches are simply attracted because the fabric might have remnants of food or sugary drinks on it! This is something you need a thorough expert Roach Removal company to come and help you with your roach problems!
As for the other aspects of your home, like a carpet or upholsteries, some additional help with this cleaning job, so checking out professionals like Richmond carpet cleaning or house cleaners in your area, will help you get everything sorted.
I’ve decided to start with my Spring/Summer closet, which is the one I will be needing from April on! This is how my closet looks right now!! I know, lots to do! Here are my goals:
Spring Cleaning Goals
Sort the clothes and organize them
Create a donate pile with at least two bags to be donated
My goal is to take some gently used dresses and shoes to the local organization which donates clothes and shoes to women re-entering the work force!
Use a junk removal service for anything large you want to get rid of
If you are spring cleaning some pretty large items like a sofa, chairs, tables, even ripping out some old flooring or tiles, then you will need to dispose of it efficiently and safely, this is where businesses like Rubbish Works Junk Removal, as well as others within your area, can be utilized, so you are cleanly getting everything away and can start fresh. Nothing better than getting rid of massive annoyances which you’ve been meaning to chuck out for a long time, you’ll be able to feel good about your surroundings for the spring.
Create another pile for almost new things to be at our town yard sale next week
Next week is our town yard sale, so I want to make sure piles are sorted out and clothes are ready to go to a good home!
Revamp my underwear Drawers
Are you like me and you have underwear from 6 years ago? It doesn’t fit, it lost elasticity, color faded? A wire is out of the bra line? But you still insist on keeping them in your drawer??? Guilty!!! So I decided it is time to replace that bra that I have been wearing for waaaaaaaay too long! It’s past the time…
Hanes inspired me to do it when they sent me the Oh So Light Bra:
It looks amazing and feels like I’m not wearing anything! One more tool to allow me to attend events in style, feeling amazing, inside and out!
You can find the bra at Target and Walmart!
Now you too, have a chance to win a $50 Hanes Visa Card along with a Hanes Oh So Light Bra!
Can’t wait to hear your thoughts! As usual, give us a Trendy Shout!
I did my spring cleaning before we moved in January. I still need to go through my sock drawer. A few weeks ago, I cleaned out the underwear drawer.
I have clothes that are at least 10 years old. They need to go!

Haha. I think the term that you are looking for is ‘scaggy’ and I can definitely relate. I definitely need to buy more underwear x

There’s nothing better than a soft comfy bra. I’m looking for some new ones for the summer and I think I’m going to have to give this one a try. I’ve been spring cleaning like a maniac, lol.

Well, my husband says I need to clean out my closet….and the truth is, I do. I told him we could do it this summer when I am off work. Kind of scared to take this on!
Spring cleaning is in full swing over here! And cleaning and sorting our closets is on the to-do list this week.

I need to clean out my closets, because there is so much clutter and out-dated clothing in them.
Great idea. I’m a minimalist so am always decluttering my house to only include the items which are of value to me. Once you’ve got rid of your stuff the key is to only buy things which spark joy to you or items which you really need.
I need to clean my closet because I’ve gained weight and maybe trying on the clothes that don’t fit will help motivate me.
(and I need to clean the man’s side because he still has a bunch of old t-shirts hanging up. Who the heck hangs grungy old t-shirts???)
We just had a yard sale, and it felt so good to get rid of tons of stuff from the house. I didn’t clean nearly enough out of my own closet, though. I just keep thinking that I’ll shrink and fit into my clothes again! I need to just get rid of it! Thanks for the inspiration, and that bra looks seriously comfy!
Because it’s so unorganized and I need to get rid of things I no longer wear. I can be a bit of a packrat.
I have too many clothes that do not fit any more. I definitely need to clean it out!!

I have this bra!!! I just wore it for the first time today. I am in love!
OMG I’ll admit, I’m totally guilty of the “antiqued” unmentionables drawer. Hey, those were pretty at one time!
It is nice, however, once you do get it all organized and you feel like you’re at Victorias Secret every time you pull open the drawer (except my bras usually come from Walmart) lol
I have clothes that are too small, clothes are on the floor, everywhere.
I need to clean my closet because I moved to the south last week and i realize so much of my NY wardrobe has to GO! Time for a new fork in the road in life, time to freshen up the wardrobe.

Haha, your closet looks like mine! I’ll have to follow your lead and work on some decluttering of my own soon.
My house seriously needs to undergo, some spring cleaning. It’s such a cluster in here because I never want to let things go.
Great idea on donating and selling some stuff! I am interested about Hanes, it’s comfortable if you feel like you were nothing and seems more easy to move 🙂
We donate our gently used items at least twice a year, when the seasons change. It is a great way to both give back and declutter.
