Spring Cleaning

April 28, 2017 5:33pm CST
I recently did some pretty hefty spring cleaning. I legitimately delivered a trunk load of old clothes and items to the local GoodWill. After my closet and drawers were thinned out I realized that I had just been letting unnecessary items accumulate! I began to wonder how much money I could have saved if I had just made a list every time I went shopping, rather than buy everything I saw and liked. Did you have any great realization during your spring cleaning? Did you avoid spring cleaning all together?

I don't tend to Spring clean. I clean all the time so I don't need to. But cleaning up my shelf I realized I had way too much body wash and soap. I think I bought it last summer. I still have over 14 bottles left.

I can totally relate, I have an entire bag filled with body washes and body sprays, as well as seated lotion that I just can't part with!

I lie spring cleaning, since i can get rid of unnecessary stuff... but i am quite the same before, i sometimes do not think much about buying new clothes, and in the end they just sit in the closet now i think twice and even 3 times before buying clothes

Spring cleaning is such a peace giver. Here in India anytime is spring cleaning time.

My family has been trying to greatly minimize our "stuff" that we own. I have delivered tons of clothes, shoes, ect to the local orphanage. I love the way my house feels when it's decluttered and it feels amazing to be able to give to people who don't have a lot.

I clean things out somewhat regularly, but there is always more. More!! (Ugh!) We moved a few months ago. My husband is an only child and his mother recently had to move into a nursing home. We've been sorting much of her stuff too. It's all overwhelming but I'm determined to take this opportunity to simplify my life!
