While we are stuck with the Covid –19 Virus – Let’s get stuck into Spring Cleaning!
Spring cleaning is no easy task, especially in Calgary where the outside jobs are in between the snow falls! Spring cleaning consists of cleaning the entire house – which isn’t easy (depending on your house size). The best way is to find the most manageable approach for you, and here are a couple of suggestions:
The Both Feet Approach - Block time to get the entire project done, yes done ! whether that may be an entire weekend or an entire week. The both feet approach means – in with both feet and done and dusted as quick as possible. My favorite approach, because even though it is a pain and even intense at the time, you will not have the project hanging over your head for long. Job done!
In the words of the Lena Martell song – Do it “One day at a Time”. Why not spend one Saturday cleaning up the outside of the house, another Saturday working on sorting things out ready for Kijiji and yet another Saturday sprinkling pixie dust over it!. This might be the better approach for someone who is unable to block out a chunk of time to dedicate to cleaning.
Either of these will work, as long as you commit to completing the job. Don’t choose the Both Feet Approach if you think it will be too much for you and run out of time. Make sure that if you choose to break things up, you schedule your time for each project and stick to it. Remember the project is lost if it runs on for six months, and is never finished.
Once you’ve chosen your time frame commit to it with a clear plan of action. Have fun, order in pizza, ramp up some music and make the most of your spring cleaning.
Easter is approaching, after you finish why not treat yourself to a big chocolate Easter egg!
