It should always be Spring Cleaning whether or not you live in sunny Tucson Arizona. No excuses that it is cold and rainy and snowy outside.  If you want to make an easy move to a new home in Arizona, or easy sale on your home, decluttering your home should be on a routine basis. You can make decluttering fun too by looking on Houzz or follow my pins on Pinterest too.

It is important to organize first. You feel better about yourself that you start organizing not just randomly throwing out items.  You may give items away to a thrift shop, donate to a good cause like a women's shelter or sell on craigslist or eBay.  Making a little money will be a great way to buy some attractive items at the Container store.   

See what room needs the most attention.  It may be your kitchen that needs a good sprucing up.  The kitchen is the most used room in the home.   This is where we seem to accumulate stuff.   Follow my pins on my website Home page at Pinterest for some ideas.

Throw out old plastic and paper bags in the recycle bin, group all your tupperware like containers together, go through drawers that accumulate rubber bands, pens, old keys, packaged silverware from takeout and miscellaneous items.  How many of us have these messy drawers in our kitchens? 

As soon as the items are organized into categories of donating, recycling, or storage, take the items to that destination as soon as possible.  Don't start a collection service in your garage.  

In other words, complete each task.  

Now is the time to start buying containers or pretty bins, boxes, compartments for items you will be keeping and using. By having these organizational items, you will be more efficient.  You also will feel good about your housekeeping  skills.
