The last thing you want to do when the weather gets nice again (and it will) is waste time indoors. That’s why you should start spring cleaning now, while you won’t be tempted to do something more fun or immediately gratifying. Start with a few simple tasks that you don’t do every week, such as cleaning out a closet. Or pick the most remote room in your home to start the deep-clean and work inward, the New York Times suggests. And when dusting or washing surfaces, always start at the top of a given room and work downward to get a gravity assist.
