Spring has sprung (I've been waiting ages to say that haha). As I mentioned in my last post, spring isn't my most favourite season, however, there are definitely parts of it that I do really enjoy. And one of them is spring cleaning. Don't get me wrong, I usually hate cleaning. I'm the kind of person who either gets super grumpy when I have to clean, or I start cleaning and then end up sitting around all afternoon looking at random stuff I find in the process. But spring to me is the perfect time to hit refresh on your life. Thoroughly cleaning out everything that might have been a bit neglected over the dreary winter months gives me a really awesome feeling and I'm so eager to get started on it all!
To keep myself productive, I've set myself up a to-do list to keep myself on track with what I want to accomplish during the next few months. Without further ado, here is my spring cleaning must-do list!
(1) Declutter my workspace
I tend to get my best work done in an organized environment. Is it just me? Clutter seriously drives me crazy. I'm weirdly specific about how my workspace is set up and I really like it looking ~aesthetically pleasing~ too lol. But when times get super busy, it can be really easy to just get used to putting up with a messy workspace. Now that spring is here and things are winding down, I have much more time to devote to cleaning out the clutter once and for all.
(2) Reorganize my vanity
I have been blissfully ignorant of the fact that my makeup stash is super cluttered and full of crap for a long time. I find myself digging past tubes of mascara far past their expiry dates on a daily basis. My makeup collection is in desperate need of a clean out y'all... So I'm really looking forward to taking the opportunity to go through my makeup and tossing out all those old products that desperately need getting rid of.
(3) Purge my closet
I've needed to do a good purge of my closet for ages now. I last did one around this time last year, just before I moved, but I still held onto a bunch of things I definitely didn't need. There's a lot of clothes in my closet that I kept from my teens that I just wouldn't wear in my twenties. So now is the perfect time to sort through everything and donate the things I don't wear anymore (and toss out the things that are too worn out to pass along). It also gives me the opportunity to upgrade my wardrobe - aka shopping!!
(4) Do a proper top-to-bottom clean of my room
Spring cleaning does, in fact, have the word "cleaning" in it. So, of course, I have to do some proper cleaning. That means vacuuming, dusting, washing the linens, cleaning the windows, etc. Throughout the school year, I've been doing things sporadically, doing one task at a time. But now that I've got some free time, I'll be able to do it all at once which means going into spring with a perfectly fresh start!
(5) Clean the inside and outside of my car
I've been dying to clean the inside of my car basically since the week that I got it. When the weather finally gets nice (whenever that will be...) the first thing I plan on doing is clean my car. Winter wreaked some major friggin' havoc on my poor car. I hate it. It's like everything is coated in snow and slush residue and the exterior is all stained from trudging through mountains of snow. Blegh. I'm soo ready to run my car through the wash and do some major interior cleaning!
Happy Spring Cleaning to all!!
