Spring Home Works

It is freezing in Cheshire. We even had some snow the other day, and it doesn’t look like this chill is leaving anytime soon. I am looking forward to spring now. It feels like this winter has gone on for ages; I am badly in need of some warmer weather and some sunshine.

I am always in the mood to do some spring cleaning during the spring season. Guess there is something about the weather that makes me want to move things around in the house.

Here are some things I would love to get done around the house this spring.

 

Do some garden work

Our garden has been abandoned pretty much for the whole of winter. I have hardly stepped into it because of the extreme cold. So we plan to make up for that this spring. We have a few garden work to carry out, and I hope we get them all done this year. If we had an unlimited budget, I would love to get an extension with some quality aluminium roof lanterns to extend our ground space. An extension would open up our ground floor space and I can imagine what I would do with that sort of space right now.

 

Install some blackout blinds

I would love to get some blackout blinds installed in time for spring/summer, in addition to our curtains. They would beautify the rooms, adding a bit more character to them. I have a few designs in mind already, thanks to Pinterest, and I can’t wait to get started.

 

Declutter

Decluttering our entire house is on my to-do list. We have so much junk I need to get rid of, and I have started listing preloved items on eBay already. I like to declutter every 3 months. With the kids growing so quickly, there always clothes to get rid of. Plus, our shed is bursting with items that are badly in need of a new home.

 

Update some decor

Updating our decor is high on my to-do list as well. I am looking to update some of our decor in some of the rooms. I know we need a clock and some cushions for sure. And I am looking to get some more character to the rooms, so will be on the lookout for some quirky decorations.

 

Bathroom upgrade

The bathtub needs some work done. A part needs replacing and we need to get some wall tiles done too. I am hoping we make a head start on this work sometime this spring and hopefully finish up before the end of summer.

 

Do you have any spring home works planned?

4 Ways to Conquer Clutter

Who hates clutter? I know I do. It makes me feel very dizzy if I am being honest.

Clutter is a major problem for most of us. At a point in our lives, we most likely have to deal with clutter, especially when we start growing our family. To be clear, clutter is bad. It takes up all available space and you never know for sure what you have because it is most likely all buried under a pile somewhere. Which causes wastage because you end up duplicating lots of what you have already because you can’t find. And that leads to more clutter.

So how do we sort out the clutter issue? Here are a 4 tips you will definitely find handy –

 

More storage

If possible, get some more storage in your home. This way, you have some more extra space to play around with, pending when the clutter is sorted. You could start with a shed if you can, or you could increase your space with a DIY Conservatory. Whichever way you can, try to get increase your storage options in your home to sort out the clutter.

 

Get organised

Have a good look at all what you have and get rid of anything you don’t need. So for clothes, if you haven’t worn a piece of clothing in a year, get rid of it. You could give it away to charity or sell the items if they are still in a good condition. If the item is not good enough to give charity or to sell, then you need to bin it.

You need to be a little ruthless when doing this task, no room for sentiments or else you will still be left with some clutter.

 

Stop buying

While the decluttering is going on, you need to only buy what you need. So no shopping for unnecessary stuff until the clear out is done. This way you get to discover what you definitely need and what you don’t. And avoid wasting your hand earned money on items you have already but can’t see.

 

Recycle

Recycle as many items as you can. I always make sure I send any furniture or home equipment I won’t be needing to our local recycle centre. It is my own way of taking care of the environment, and it makes me feel good.
