Spring Cleaning

As we start to enter one of the year’s busiest seasons, life can start to feel out of control. When you feel like you’re losing a grasp on the things around you, getting organized can help. Here are some tips and tricks to make getting organized not feel so overwhelming! Before you start organizing, know your why. It’s important to go into the process having a clear vision of how this project is going to benefit you. Begin by recognizing where there is clutter in your life.

If you’re not sure on where to get started, go by what bothers you most. This could mean organizing clothes or an office space first. You’ll be the most motivated and experience the highest satisfaction once you’re done. Once you’ve found where to start, follow these four steps to make the organization process flow easily.

  • Take everything out - Empty that drawer, canister, or shelf completely. Wipe it clean while you have the chance.
  • Select your favorites - Don’t get wrapped up in what used to work, or what might help in the future. What “sparks joy?” Set those items aside.
  • Express gratitude for what you don’t keep - If you have several pairs of shoes and only decide to keep a few, take a moment of thanks for the others and set them aside for donation.
  • Store, keeping easy access in mind - Store items that are similar together - like with like. Returning the items you keep to their rightful place, and storing them in a way that makes them easy to access.

Sometimes the mess feels too big and overwhelming. When this happens, consider finding someone to walk you through. This can be a family member, a friend, or a home organization consultant.

Daylight Savings Time

This year, Daylight Savings is set to run from 2 am on March 12th to 2 am on November 5. The only states in the union that don't observe daylight saving time are Hawaii and Arizona, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation, though the Navajo Nation, which cuts through part of Arizona, does.

You may have heard about the Sunshine Protection Act - this Act would do away with moving clocks forward and backward twice a year, making daylight saving time the permanent time for the entire United States. A bipartisan group of senators passed the Sunshine Protection Act on March 15, 2022 last year, but it was never taken up or voted on by the House of Representatives. So for now, plan for more daylight saving in the future.
