We love this time of year, with time finally starting to warm up, the sun starts to shine and everything looks a little brighter. As always on a beautiful spring day, we open the windows to let the air in and make sure our blinds and curtains are open so that sunlight can shine directly through our homes, beautiful is not ... until Suddenly start to see all that dust!
It happens to the best of us, every year without fail reminds us when spring comes, as to how much we have neglected the care of our homes. Winters are dark and sad and the shorter day means less energy and determination to clean, but when spring comes, the days are finally longer and brighter than there is no excuse, especially when the sunlight begins to highlight the Dust that has been built up.

Whether it's too many pairs of hats, scarves and bridges, a row of old snow boots, or anything else; In the winter many of us are in the habit of letting things start to pile up.

Everything about the winter can be stored with no excuse for not venturing out and putting certain things in the garage, you will be amazed at how much space you can make. It's easy to put things down when it's cold, but now that the weather is warming up, make more room and your mind will be clear as well.
• Room by Room - When it comes to spring cleaning, it may seem like a good idea to tackle several areas at once, but this rarely works and will soon give up! Take things one step at a time and consider starting the room around the room to make sure you do not get overwhelmed. The kitchen is always the best place to start; Clean the fridge, the cupboards and give the old tops the cleanest deep I've seen in a while and then move on to the next room.
