Spring is near and the weather is slowly turning warm again!
With that comes one of my favorite things.. Spring cleaning! This is the perfect time of year to start thinking about de-cluttering your home, hosting a garage sale to get rid of things that aren’t needed and doing some updates/home projects that you’ve been meaning to get to.
In this post, are some ideas and tips for cleaning and/organizing closets, cabinets and other places in the home. In tomorrow’s blog there will be some fun ideas & inspiration for projects that you can work on – tiling bathrooms, building new headboards for the bedroom, lots of great ideas. Happy cleaning! (I feel like Danny Tanner from Full House being so excited to spring clean!)

Lastly, organize your linen closet.. my biggest downfall! Folding sheet sets and putting them in pillow case for easy storage and everything is kept together. No random pillow cases popping up anymore!
