I usually give our apartment a pretty good cleaning to prepare for the Lunar New Year but it's when Spring rolls around that I really get to the deep cleaning and organizing. With this also comes the purging which I find so liberating and so necessary. We have decently sized closets and our apartment isn't actually cramped but somehow clutter still manages to build up. I've always been good about having a place for everything but now I'm also trying to be more mindful of what I bring in and have routines for regularly disposing of things. So far I've tackled the pantry, refrigerator, linen closet and my beauty stash. I'm in the process of cleaning my closet now and this always feels like a real process even though I do it twice a year. As I was cleaning my computer I found a number of helpful links to cleaning/organizing tips I had bookmarked and thought I'd share them here.
Is Spring cleaning something you do? How do you conquer clutter?
