Spring is almost here for residents at City-Base Vista, and your apartment could use some spring cleaning and decluttering. It’s nearly time to go shopping for new clothes and think about hosting friends again. But first, you’ll need to do some prep work. Clear out some space in your closet for new clothes and sweep up your floors. Buckle up — it’s time to do some spring cleaning.

How to Declutter and Get Ready For Spring

Spend some one-on-one time with your belongings to start the decluttering process. Start with your clothes, for example. Pick up each article of clothing and think about the last time you wore it. Does it still fit you? Do you even like it anymore? If the answer is no, donate it! There are plenty of charities looking for clothing right now.

Think about the one in, one out rule. To avoid adding clutter to your apartment, get rid of one thing for every new thing you buy.

Tips and Hacks for Organizing Your Home

Start small. Trying to tackle your entire home at once will cause more stress than have any benefit. Avoid burnout by picking one room to start with and working your way through the rest of the apartment.

Consider utilizing empty spaces to your advantage like the area under your bed can hold many items. Baskets and storage containers are fantastic ways to keep any area organized and decluttered. Or use high shelves to store items you don’t frequently use. You can also use apartment-friendly hooks to hang things in your kitchen to create more space.

Organizing Made Simple

Spring cleaning is a big task, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be fun and rewarding. Tackling bits and pieces of cleaning around your apartment one task at a time is a sure way to get the cleaning done while keeping it fun. Once your home is clean, treat yourself to a trip out on the town in San Antonio.
