Step Into Spring Cleaning Part I

Spring has sprung! And so has our introduction to spring cleaning – the Edit My Closet way!

We’re committed to easing our customers and readers into spring cleaning. Our philosophy is this: lightening up our living space better aligns us with the weather outside. And tackling tasks on our ongoing “to do lists” is the perfect way to begin.

Here are some easy wins to get you started!

 Finish the laundry (including the linens and duvets you’ve been putting off for weeks).  Fold, hang and put away clothing strewn across the bedroom (otherwise they cause a sense of “overwhelm” in a space that should be dedicated to serenity).

 While the laundry’s in the washing machine, busy those hands! For clothing that requires special care (i.e. hand washing delicates), use this time to give them the attention they deserve. Sew buttons, press shirts and get out the pill-remover.      

 Commit to bringing dry cleaning and items to be altered (including shoes, purses and belts) to the appropriate professionals.  Then do it.

Carve out time to fix that cupboard door, build that shelf unit and deal with all those small unfinished projects lying around the house. If you can’t do it yourself, call a professional.

 Attack the piles. File paperwork, shred the unneeded and toss the rest. If you’ve kept something (a free yoga pass or the phone number of a cute librarian) give yourself a due date to deal with it.  If the due date comes and no action has been taken – recycle the paper.

File Therapy

Just remember, a little goes a long way! Start with one small project and see it through until the end.

Easy wins go a long way ...

Happy Spring!

We’re obviously very excited.
