spring cleaning doesn’t have to be in the spring

I set aside last weekend to do a deep clean of my home. Closets, shelves, cabinets, the works. Here’s what I discovered:

  • I’ve outgrown the need for certain books and clothes.
  • Hanging a new picture in my kitchen changes my mood in the morning.
  • I live alone, so I don’t need seven mugs.
  • I have a great project that is ready to come off the back burner.
  • Order relaxes me and makes me feel more energized and effective in my day-to-day.

What does spring cleaning (or summer cleaning!) do for you?
