How to Spring Clean the Clutter Away In 5 Minutes A Day

Ah, spring … the winds kick up so much sand the Franklins disappear from view on an almost weekly basis, the poppies are blooming on Transmountain, and the cockroaches have returned to the KISS-FM studios. Spring also means spring-cleaning! But that doesn’t have to mean hours and hours of work.  According to Peter Walsh, professional organizer from TLC’s “Clean Sweep”, you can accomplish a lot in just 5 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Here’s what he suggests:

  • Set a timer for 5 minutes.
  • Grab a medium-sized trash bag. You’ll use this to throw things away or drop them off at Goodwill or give them to someone, whichever makes the most sense for you.
  • Pick your target. Make sure to keep it small so you can be thorough, like one drawer in the kitchen, one shelf of books or DVDs, your office desktop, etc.
  • Toss anything you haven’t used in 6-12 months. Things you felt like you needed to keep yesterday you may be able to toss today. Be ruthless!

When the timer goes off, STOP. If the bag is full, put it in the trash or in your car to drop off at a donation center. If the bag isn’t full, keep it nearby so you can fill it the next day.

JUST ASKING: Do you have a spring cleaning tip you’d like to share?
