Warmer temperatures and longer days have these Resource Girls opening up the windows and airing out our homes. Spring cleaning isn't fun but necessary.
And lets be honest, who doesn't need to do a little cleaning?
We picked something to clean from each of the 5 F's - fashion, fitness, finance, food and friendship.
We can't remember where we heard it but we try to abide by the rule that if you don't wear something for a year it's time to get rid of it. We've found this to be sad at times but very true. We challenge you to get rid of those sweaters and hoodies that have sat in your closet all winter and gone untouched. What if you could get cash for those winter clothes and buy something for the summer?
Cat took some clothes to Buffalo Exchange and got this awesome maxi and some cash!
Have you ever cleaned your yoga mat or running shoes?
We wash our workout clothes on the regular but these two items often get neglected. You can throw your shoes in the wash but in between washes spray some Lysol in your soles to keep them fresh. Bacteria is what causes unwanted smell. When you get home from hot yoga leave your mat open to air out and spray with Lysol.
Who doesn't need to clean out their purse and wallet?
Or what about switching out your purse to something fresh and new for spring?
One of the best ideas we've found, from Pinterest of course, was to use a lint roller on the inside of your purse to get random crumbs, dirt, bobby pins or whatever else may be lurking in the abyss.
Have you ever looked at the expiration date on your spices?
You may be surprised to find that they don't last forever. Throw away the ones you don't need and organize the ones you do. The Container Store to the rescue. They have tons of options for organizing spices and pantries and just about anything else in your home. Maybe starting small will have you wanting to tackle your pantry or under the kitchen sink. We won't judge you if you're not that ambitious, we're still trying to decide how ambitious we're feeling.
