How To Organize Your Spring-Clean

Spring makes everything New Again

I love when Spring arrives, I open all the windows in the home to let the sunshine & breeze in and Winter’s dirt & dust out!

My  Deep-Clean Checklist works well for going through the home to check off those areas that take a beating every winter season; entry ways, downstairs & hallway half baths, living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, and floors.

Now, that you have a plan of action, you need to gather your tools and equipment for the project.

Mine & Martha’s favorite Natural Cleaning Products

“I’m not here to reinvent the wheel – just tweak it!” that’s what I did with 2 of Martha’s recipes. I have been using my own solutions + Martha’s in my home for the last few weeks, I will post the outcomes with the recipes in a future post with pics, along with how to store them properly.

The two resources above will help get you started on your way to breathing fresh air back into the home!

Happy Clean & Organize~ Cheryl

How To Prepare Your Home For The Spring Market

Staging a Home

Selling Your Home in the Spring Means Preparing Your Home in the Winter For sellers, it’s important to start getting your home ready long before the snow is gone and the first flower blooms.

Interview Real Estate Agents

One of the most important thing to do when selling your home is to find a great agent to represent you. If you don’t have one already, then get recommendations from friends and interview different agents to find one who will be the best fit for you. A good listing agent should have a great marketing plan, experience, and deep knowledge of the area and market.

Begin Packing and Organizing Your Belongings

There’s no way to know for sure how long it will take for your home to sell – it could take a month, or years – and while it may seem crazy to start packing up your stuff before a sale occurs, it’s best to be prepared for any outcome.

Clear the Clutter

Prospective buyers are going to want to step into your home and see a place they can visualize living in and making their own. The best way to do that is to create a blank slate. Keep it neat, keep it clean, reduce the amount of clutter you have on shelves and surfaces, and depersonalize as much as you can. The idea is to showcase your home without distracting from it, you want to showcase the focal points and function of each room of the home.

Make Repairs and Improvements

The last thing anyone wants to do before they sell their home is to dump a bunch of money into it for an extensive renovation; however, there are minor repairs and improvements that can be made to make a home look fresher for potential buyers.

  • Freshen Up Paint, Front Door and Hardware

Applying a coat of paint to walls and trim, or even touching up certain areas, can make a world of difference in the appearance of your home. It’s also a good idea to spruce up your front door, since that’s the first thing a buyer will see when they walk in.

  •  Let the Light in

Buyers want homes to be light and bright, so replace your light bulbs or even add a lamp or two to lighten it up. Also, when your home is being shown make sure all the lights are on and the blinds are open.

  • Focus on Bathrooms and Kitchen

The bathrooms and kitchen tend to be a focal point in the homes, and buyers pay attention to whether or not they’ve been updated. Doing little things like re-grouting the tile on the bathroom floor, or caulking the shower and bathtub, can give a used bathroom a fresher look – even new faucets can make a difference.

  •  Spruce up the Curb Appeal

You want to impress potential buyers as soon as they step onto the property or take a drive by, which means making the outside of your home look as appealing as possible.  Make the extra effort to rake leaves, weed the garden, and mow the lawn. Clean and put out your outdoor furniture, and even consider adding some colorful plants to the front of the house.

  1. Living Areas: Determine what your focal point will be – if you don’t have a fireplace, consider a high piece (art canvas picture, decorative tray, or a grouping) to focus your attention and draw you into the room.
  2. Dining Place: Recall your favorite restaurant. Besides the good food, what was it about the ambience that spoke to you that you can recreate in your dining place at home?
  3. Kitchens: Hang a collection of various baskets (use nails without heads – 1.5” brads). Use the baskets for bread, fruit, napkins, and utensils. Be creative and artful when arranging them on the wall.
  4. Homework / Study Area: When we study, we love to lean back in our chair and put our feet up on a footstool (choose one with storage). A stool can also be a convenient place to rest a snack tray.
  5. Bedroom: Always have fresh-cut flowers or flowering plants to create an indoor garden for your private sanctuary. Grab a few bouquets of store-bought fresh flowers, separate them and create a bunch of small bouquets to place throughout the bedrooms – all year-long.

How To Chi in Some Energy With Feng Shui . . .

I have been studying Feng Shui  lately – I would like to add this service to my Home & Office Concierge Service. I suffer from depression, I am looking for a more holistic way to treat it and I read an article in a wellness center over the summer about how Feng Shui has been found to help with people suffering from depression . . . I was intrigued.

Cleaning and Organizing for people in their homes and offices for over 20 years, I do understand the concept of placement – and in other blogs I have written about how a home, office, and/or space has its own “heartbeat”. So, I am beginning to understand placement along with symbols to energize an area. I’m getting there!

If you would like to work with me in this very infantile stage of my learning the powers of Feng Shui – please reach out to me (860)961.6824 (leave me a message that you’re interested in FENG SHUI and I’ll get back to you), we can learn together – it will be very affordable to start out at this stage of the process in  developing an outline for this service.

*Side Note – I chose this video not only because Nancy is simple in her explanation of the process – but I love Olivia Newton-John . . . Who doesn’t right? Enjoy . . . . . . . .
