Give your living room a good dust, open up the windows and let some fresh air in. Change up the color tones of the room by adding some vibrant throw pillows or some fresh cut flowers.
Clean out the fridge and pantry from any old or expired food and further wipe down every surface. Go through drawers and cupboards to clear clutter and organize your dishes.
Clean the sinks, toilets, and tiled floors then scrub the shower and bath tub. Hang up some fresh colorful hand towels and add a fresh smelling soap in your dispenser.
It’s time to strip your bed of its big, bulky duvet cover and replace it with some cotton sheets. Clean out your closet of winter clothes and make room for your spring and summer options. Go through any drawers and throw away any junk or clutter.
