    Every February I start to dewinterize my home decor and I begin pre-spring cleaning by decluttering and reorganizing.  I have been really inspired to create a more organic feel in my home in 2018. With that in mind, I recently shared a post on ways to incorporate natural interior design by bringing the outdoors in.

    I also shared a post on how to prepare for spring cleaning.

    cleaning organizing decluttering

    With Spring not too far away, most of us have started thinking about brightening up our homes and decor for the season, but first we must tackle all the spring cleaning tasks ahead. Call me strange, but I absolutely love cleaning and purging junk that has accumulated throughout the year. I actually look forward to all the organizing! In today’s post I will be sharing some ideas to help you prepare for a deep spring cleaning as the days get lighter, the temperature gets warmer, and a sense of optimism can be felt in the air. Indeed, this is the perfect time to declutter, get organized, and clean our homes in anticipation of the carefree days that late spring and summer will bring! Whether or not the groundhog sees his shadow, those glorious days will be here before we know it. Let the great purging begin! *This post contains affiliate links.

In my recent post, Five Easy Ways To Make A Kitchen Feel More Spacious, I talked a little about how I rushed into purchasing new appliances instead of waiting and searching for the vintage style appliances of my dream kitchen. *This post contains affiliate and/or sponsored links.


    Love the stove, the cabinets, the counter top, sink, AND the floor.
