Now that you’ve done the hardest parts of the home, you can tackle the bedrooms and living areas. Start by refreshing any bedding that doesn’t get washed regularly, Apartment Therapy says, such as comforters and pillows. Vacuum the mattresses, and swap warm-weather bedding for cold. In the closets and dressers, switch out seasonal clothing, culling out any you no longer use and #donating them to ClothingDonations.org. In living areas, dust flat surfaces, wash baseboards and vacuum upholstered furniture thoroughly. Finally, #clean your screens and remotes, and kick back for some binge-watching. You’ve earned it! #FallCleaning
Symptoms of #spring fever include the urge to exercise, eat light, sleep less and smile more, says Bustle.

Many cleaning products will be on sale, and you can always look to The Organizing Blog for advice on making specific areas of the home such as the garage, bedrooms, kitchen and garden more #organized and clean. #SpringFever
When we were teenagers, we used to get in trouble for throwing things under the bed instead of putting them away. However, if you’re looking for extra storage space, underneath your bed isn’t a bad place to look. Thin Rubbermaid crates or totes for your shoes and other accessories fit perfectly under the bed. When you try this technique, you’ll be thanking your 17-year-old self!
